Seeing the results almost makes you wish they remained inactive
  • Glushko, seeded 5/Q, failed to qualify in Dothan (USA) 50K.
  • Khazaniuk (7/Q) and Shlomo (2/Q) at least played up to their seeds and made the MD in an Uzbek 25K (Keren just barely) before losing R1 in straight sets, Deniz against another qualifier with a very similar ranking (and age) to hers.
  • Lankri lost 1&0 in a 10K in Antalya.
  • Lee Or didn't make the MD in a 10K in Greece (at least she won a match).
  • Blecher got into a 10K in Peru(!) [which was supposed to have a 64Q draw and ended up not having qualies at all, with all 30 players there straight into the MD - haven't seen anything like that ] and lost R1.
  • And the talented, troubled one disappeared, again.
And it's not like our #1 player is doing great atm.
It's simply depressing to be an Israeli tennis fan these days and there's not even a sign that things are going to get any better.
