Re: Amped Up for Aminat Kushkhova

After a tough 2011, Aminat seems to be back in form, reaching two back-to-back hardcourt semis in Egypt. The first was the 10K Sharm El-Sheikh, as a qualifier. The second, is the current 10K Sharm El-Sheikh 2, as a direct entry.

As the #3 seed, she faces fellow Russian Natela Dzalamidze in the semis.

Her current rank is #484; her high rank is #389, reached June 6, 2011. She has one 10K doubles title to her name, so far.

Re: Amped Up for Aminat Kushkhova

Unfortunately, Aminat retired in her semi against Natela, 26 14. I hope she is alright. Looks like she'll be the #4 seed at the the SES #3, next week.

Re: Amped Up for Aminat Kushkhova

Aminat's form has dropped off a lot. Time to pick it back up. She's the #1 seed in the 25K Moscow indoor qualies. Her section
(1)Aminat Kushkhova (RUS) v BYE
(16)Darya Lebesheva (BLR) v Varvara Kuznetsova (RUS)
She should at least make the main draw.

10K Warsaw clay. Aminat is the #8 seed, and plays WC Magdalena Frech. Aminat can win this, right?

Aminat falls to Sasnovich, 26 57, but still a nice tournament for her.

Re: Amped Up for Aminat Kushkhova

10K Antalya.

Seeded #7, Aminat made her 4th SF of the year, after Hulya Esen, 3 & 4. She then fell to upstart Agnes Bukta, 0 & 2 Wondering when she will get that elusive singles title? Another opportunity in Antalya next week.

Re: Amped Up for Aminat Kushkhova

Aminat starts her year in the qualies of the 25K Moscow.

It's time for her to make some movement up the rankings-- she's been holding steady in the 500s for the last three years. She's currently ranked #524.

Here she's seeded #4. She faces Alona Fomina first round.
