I have to criticize Aleksandra for playing a 25k. Winning or losing it, it doesn't matter at all, it won't do anything to her ranking. She can become a top player only if she switches to higher tournaments and starts facing top players more often. Playing some random, local bitches won't give her any experience.
Win this at least.
I agree, it is good for confidance, but she was winning 25ks(and a 50 to) when she was 17, she should concentrate more stronger ITFs, and especialy with Internationals, she is top 150 damn it, 25 wont give her much. In past few years she played like 5 touraments per year that are bigger than 25s!
All of this.
I find it really hard to get excited about her wins at 25/50/75 ks.
She needs to venture further and see if she'll sink or swim... or perhaps become a doubles specialist?
