Re: Oxana Lyubtsova
I spotted her in Roland Garros qualifiers this year playing very well, consistently putting the ball in just the right place against Baltacha.
In Wimbledon qualifiers, the first match against Lepchenko she was still getting used to grass until she was down 3-1 in the second set, when she started playing to her potential.
In her second match against Camerin she was moved around quite a lot by a more powerful player who can find some angles and moves forward a little more than her, but Camerin is fitful. Oksana was poised to take the second set at 5-4 when Camerin put a couple of service returns into the net, but Oksana got just a little tense to put three shots long in the same game and ended up losing the match.
Oksana is substantially a small baseliner who hits remarkably flat, talented but her serve does not add much to her game.
