Thumbs up Anastasiya Shoshyna

Nastya is gonna turn 19 soon (born Nov 30, 1997), she's from Kharkiv and is training at the Angie Academy in Puszczykowo.

She's improved nicely this year: she broke into the Top 500 for the first time in June (she reached a CHR of 477 in August, and she's currently ranked #521), she has reached 4 singles final so far and eventually snatched her first singles title thi summer (she has been playing pro tournaments consistently since August last year only) - 2 of them finals she reached last year and she lost both of them (lost her very first final in a 3rd set TB ), she lost a 3rd final last May, before eventually winning 10K Szczawno-Zdroj in June (she beat Helen Scholsen 6-3 4-6 6-4 on the final)!

She didn't have big results in juniors (she didn't win any U18 title in singles, and her CHR was 215 only), but actually played some promising matches (she lost close 3-setters to Blinky and Mihalikova in 2014, beat Lapko - in straights - and Zaja last year; beat Ozgen and played pretty close matches against Komardina, Linette, Dolonc, Lukas, Kulichkova, Burnett & Shinikova this year...), but yesterday she qualified for the MD of 25K Zawada with a 0-6 6-3 6-2 win over leftie 2nd seed Olga Fridman (10 months younger, junior CHR 12, WTA 358/CHR 231) in Q2 (she was seeded 10 in qualies, also thrashed former Top 200 player Ani Mijacika in Q1), and she's bagelled 5th seed Tamara Zidansek (same age, former junior CHR 16, WTA 229/CHR 184) in R1 She was down *2-5 in the 2nd set though, but is back to *4-5 - keep fighting!

Re: Anastasiya Shoshyna

6-0 6-7(6) 7-6(4)

She was a few times down a break in the 3rd, and even saved a MP on Zidansek's serve at 5-6* AD down...

Another great win for Nastya!

Re: Anastasiya Shoshyna

Today in R2, Nastya annihilated Camilla Rosatello (WTA 343) - who herself had beaten Leykina, to my surprise, in R1

QF match will be a bit of a challenge, as she'll face top seed Lesley Kerkhove (25 yo, Top 200)... But Lesley doesn't seem to be in very good form atm, she's had some bad losses these last weeks (and she almost lost in R1 this week...), so imo there is some decent hope for Nastya! Hopefully she plays pressure free and pulls out the win

Re: Anastasiya Shoshyna

Nastya's great run ended today, as she fell to Lesley, 4-6 7-5 2-6

She fought hard though (she was *0-4 and *3-5 down in the first, and had a BP for 5-5 at 4-5* 40-30, and in the 2nd she was *3-5 down as well) and she has a bit of a temper

Re: Anastasiya Shoshyna

Valiant effort and a good week

I remember her from a match I watched earlier this year (Katowice R1) in which she fought very hard to save a bunch of MPs against local girl Linette in a second-set TB, only to get screwed by the umpire and/or the line judges at the end. I no longer recall what happened exactly, but I remember feeling sad for her after that match.



P.S. She has nice hair (among other things)

The blackness that falls is coming to stay

Re: Anastasiya Shoshyna

Nastya routined Ema, 4 & 4 Las week she got thrashed by Bukta (who went on to win the title) in QF, so this is better!

She'll face 8th seed Tayisiya Morderger (same age, WTA 617, CHR 407), who won the title ther 2 weeks ago and upset 2nd seed Sezer today
