Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!
Nadiya lost to Juricova 6-4, 6-0 @Bucharest. I see that Lyuda lost in the finals of qualies@Olomouc 50K and the in the 2nd rd main draw @Trnava 50K also teaming up with Krunic in doubles, lost in the semis. got through Qualies @Prague 25K but then lost in the 1st round of the main draw. Nadiya lost in the 2nd round of qualies to Iveta Gerlova, way below her rank. Nadiya #412 and #203 in doubles. Lyuda is #347 and #192 in doubles. What's impressive is that together they are ranked #70 in the doubles race. I watched the videos when they were Jrs. With alot of promise vs the more recent vids and they have lost that explosive 1st step or two. This research all started because I saw these girls listed as playing in the rnd of 16, and in the qrts in doubles of the WTA Taskent going on right now. How can you play qtrs when you havn't won your previous round? This was on Tennis.com @Taskent; Nadiya lost to Mervana Jugic-Salkic 4-6, 7-5, 4-6 in 1st r qualies and Lyuda won 6-0, 6-1 over Madina Hatamova, but she lost her next match to Marta Sirotkina 7-5, 7-5. Today they play Krunic/Rybarikova in the r16 main draw, and Eva Bimerova/Vesna Dolonts in the qrts. Having won yesterday against Olga Govortsova/Alla Kudryavtseva. I'm sure only the first match is the real deal.
