To complete my current thread-creating spree
... their results are not overly impressive (at least so far) but heck, I can't ignore a pair of Belarusian twins who share a birthday with me!
They're 14 yos (born May 3, 2002), from Minsk.
Their best results in singles so far this year are:
- for Ksyusha: 2 SFs, at Cat. 2 G16 Pinsk Open & Cat. 2 G14 Riga Open; plus 1 more QF, at Cat. 2 G14 Slovan Open in Bratislava
- for Sonya: 2 SFs as well, at home tournaments Cat. 2 G14s Smena Cup & Minsk Star; plus 2 more QFs, at Cat. 2 G14s Opalenica Cup & Riga Open
This week at Riga Open: Sonya was the 8th seed, beat qualifier Eva Zazdraniha 2 & 1 in R1 and Adelina Norvaisyte 3 & 1 in R2, lost 4 & 2 to eventual champion 4th seed Maria Shusharina in QF; Ksyusha was the 5th seed, she beat WC Dariia Monakhova 1 & 4 in R1, double-bagelled WC Anija Paula Ozolina in R2, and beat 2nd seed Khimchi Shavit 2 & 0 in QF
, lost 7-6(5) 1-6 1-6 to 3rd seed Jana Kolodynska in SF
They also have pretty good results in doubles, although - fun fact - they're never pairing up together
(I'm pretty intrigued as to why is that!)
They current rankings in U14 are 71 (CHR 65) for Ksyusha, and 98 for Sonya. Hopefully they make it to the Top 50 asap, davayte!!!
