Katia would be better prepared for the WTA Tour if she had stayed in the juniors.

I think she's about 5'6" tall.

How has she done in the challengers?

And I gather injuries have slowed her developement.

That's a good link supplied by janie.
In late July, Afinogenova won four straight matches to go through the qualifiers and get to the quarters in a 10k in Italy. She lost to Petra Diznar, but gained 3.25 points. She beat the #2 seed, Leanne Baker.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
