Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

Ha, Lyuda is playing AO qualies, that's why she isn't playing that Chinese 50K with Nadiya, now I understand. It actually hadnt crossed my mind at all that her ranking was high enough to allow her to play qualies. I believe this is her 1st Slam Q ever. (Edit: I checked and it is indeed.)

She got a tough draw though, she's in the Seed 1 section.

(1)Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) v Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA)
Maryna Zanevska (UKR) v Jill Craybas (USA)
Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) v Cagla Buyukakcay (TUR)
Lyudmyla Kichenok (UKR) v (21)Paula Ormaechea (ARG)

Tough 1st round, even though Paula has had a shaky start of the year. Do you best, little Lyuda.

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

Omg, Lyuda won!

I can't believe it, she was down a break in set 2 when I stopped following the score because I was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open, and when I checked the scores now, I was totally expecting to see she lost.
But she won!!! 3-6 7-5 8-6 ... so proud of her.

Q2 against Buyukakcay. If she managed to beat Ormaechea, she can definitely beat her. Just hope she isn't too tired from that draining 1st match. Buyukakcay's got a draining match as well (won 10-8 in the 3rd set).

Davay Lyuda!

What an excellent win for Lyudmyla. It could be an all-Ukrainian final qualifying round.

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

Amazing fight from Lyudmyla. So happy she won a Grand Slam match !

Q2 is definitely winnable for her. She has so much potential. Qualify for Aus Open MD

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Lyuda just saved a SP. C'mon Lyuda! She broke quite a few times but has trouble holding serve.
