Re: RG 2013 qualifiers

Julia took advantage of the best seed she could possibly get, the slumping Kai-Chen Chang, who is yet to win a match this year (0-8 after the season opener) and a terrible clay-courter, and routed her 6-3 6-2, a very good win nonetheless.

Considering the stupid WTA qualies ranking system and having nothing to defend, this win means moving up to #140 or so.
If Shahar doesn't win her R1 match in Paris, Julia will take over as the top ranked Israeli for the first time in her career.

Next up, a talented 18 y.o. German Carina Witthoeft, who has already racked up some top-100 scalps last year and seem to like clay. Much better than her ranking would suggest and a future top-100 herself imo. Not an easy match.
Winner will play one of the Aussies, Rodionova (the older and better sister) or Rogowska, most likely the former.
