13 yo leftie Oksana (born Jan 13, 2003) from Korolyov near Moscow is one of the 2 very promising 2003 born Russian girls (along with Masha Timofeeva).
Yesterday, she posted a great win in R1 of G5 Head Cup in Moldova (her very first U18 tournament): she upset local top seed Vitalia Stamat (15 yo, #336), 7-5 4-6 6-2
She's won 3 singles titles so far this year: Cat. 2 G14 Togliatti Cup (she was the 2nd seed, beat qualifier Elizaveta Dementyeva 6-4 7-6(6) in the final), Cat. 2 G16 Yason Cup in Novi Sad (her final opponent, 15th seed Andrijana Stoilkovic, gave a WO in the final
), and Cat. 2 G16 Children's Day Cup last week in Moldova (she was the 2nd seed, she beat 15 yo top seed Roxana Manu 7-6(6) 6-1 in the final
She also made 1 more final, at Cat. 1 G14 O1 Properties Christmas Cup in Khimki, her first tournament of the year - she was the 16th seed, beat Maria Timofeeva, who was coming from the qualies, 6-4 3-6 6-4 in SF, and lost to top seed Daria Snigur 2 & 4 in the final.
At the "U14 Slam" of Les Petits As in January, she qualified for the MD, beat WC Maëlys Bougrat 1-6 6-2 6-2 in R1, and fell to 8th seed Qinwen Zheng (who is a very strong player) 2 & 1 in R2.
It will be very interesting to see how she does at this tournament next year, she & Masha are gonna be big favourites!
GL to Oksi in the future!
