Congrats to 1994 born Yana Sizikova
on making the final of 10K El Kantaoui in Tunisia this week!
This was her 4th final this year already, but sadly she lost them all.
1st final this year was at 10K SES in July, all the way from the qualies. But she lost to 18 yo 7th seed and fellow Russian Anzhelina Zhuravleva
, 6-4 6-7(3) 6-7(5) in the final.
Big congrats to Anzhelina on her very first pro singles title though!
2nd final was at 10K El Kantaoui in August, Yana was the 6th seed and lost to another fellow Russian, 2nd seed Margarita Lazareva in the final, 6-3 2-6 2-6.
3rd final was in SES again at the beginning of the month, she was the 5th seed and lost to unseeded Yuanyi Yu, 3 & 1 in the final.
And 4th final today in SES again: she was the 4th seed and lost to 2nd seed Caroline Roméo in the final, 3-6 6-1 0-6.
She's also made 2 more SFs in SES this summer. Very good year for her!
Tough luck in finals this year, but it was another good week for Yana (with a notable good win over 5th seed Joséphine Boualem - who won the title there 2 weeks ago and made the final again last week - 5-7 6-4 7-5 in QF
) and hopefully she can grab her 4th career singles title before the end of the year!
She's playing again in EK next week
