Olya played 10K Ramat Hasharon this week, she was the 8th seed, and beat Ester Masuri 1 & 1 in R1, and (Q)Keren Rozen 2 & 2 in R2, but she retired at 4-6 against (3)Marta Paigina (her victim in Tel Aviv QFs last week ) in QF
Hope she just was tired and didn't injure herself!
Congrats to Olya on winning her 3rd career singles title at 10K Astana today
She was the 4th seed, and she beat qualifier Polina Malykh 3 & 2 in R1, Darya Shevchenko 4 & 0 in R2, 5th seed Anastasia Gasanova 1 & 0 in QF, 7th seed Aleksandra Pospelova (junior Top 20) 6-2 7-5 in SF, and Alina Silich 2 & 4 in the final
She also won the title in dubs with Yana Sizikova - they were the top seeds, beat Grinchishina/Vogelsang 4 & 0 in the final
A good week for Olya so far: she's qualified for the MD of 25K Karshi (seeded 2 in qualies, she beat Yasmina Karimjanova 2 & 0 in Q1, and 12th seed Katya Malikova 6-4 7-5 in Q2), and she's through to the QFs with a 3 & 2 win over (WC)Guzal Yusupova in R1, and a 4-6 7-5 6-4 win over Freya Christie (who upset 6th seed Lykina in R1) today - great fight from 4-6 *3-5 down
She's gonna face Veronika Kudermetova (who seems to be picking up some form this week eventually, she upset 2nd seed Komardina in R1, and routined Voskoboeva in R2 today )
