That's understandable, but considering her success in doubles last year, I'm disappointed. And she needs to start playing tournaments outside of Russia. This is her 4th tournament of the year, which is not what I would consider a ful schedule.

Good to see she's signed up for a 25k in Belgium in two weeks time.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Katya is the #4 seed at Tessenderlo. She faces WC Alison Van Uytvanck, last year's finalist. Interesting because Alison has been struggling at the 25K+ level ever since that tournment.

Interesting, and a little daunting.

This is exactly the kind of match Katya can lose. This tournament is so strong, Katya is lucky to be #4 seed. And probably one of the weakest seeded players.

Needs a good result here to get this season going.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Apparently she has been injured (both her leg and her shoulder). I would rather she didn't play if she can't give 100%.

She's in Barcelona qualies tonight, as 7th seed, she starts against Detoni.

Let's see what she can do, I have no expectations.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

What, Katya is the most unpredictable of the Russians
Up next, Annalisa Bona, who also has a 2:0 h2h against Katya.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Katya never retires, so she must be injured still.

I wonder if she'll show up in Italy next week...

Nope, withdrew from the 25k in Italy.

Lets hope she shows up in Fes

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Katya in the Fes draw but has the worse draw possible:

Katya Vs. Garbine Muguruza Blanco.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Katya got lucky with the draw, it was re-jigged and Muguruza Blanco got changed to #1 seed meaning Katya had a bye in R1. She then had a good win over Rezai in R2 64 46 64.

13 double faults is worrying, but at this stage a win is a win. Plays Czink for a place in the MD. Could be worse.

C'mon Katya
