I think since she won her first 10k event last week, she deserves her own thread.
Her DOB is 26/11/91 and she was a top 50 junior two years ago with wins over top Juniors Timea Babos and Elena Bogdan. Hopefully this will finally get her senior career going. Good luck Milana!

I saw her 2 years ago playing 50k qualies. She won a match back then, looked impressive for her age back then and then she just disappeared. Hopefully she will have a full time schedule, she has potential.
Oh, have to add she has a crazy dad who was sitting next to me
