Red face ~*Cutetastic Unicorn Princess*~ Yuliya Hatouka

Let me introduce you to my favourite Belarusian kid (along with Ulyana )!

Yuliya is 15 (born April 24, 2000), she's from Minsk.

This week and last week, she's been playing her very first pro events at the 2 Minsk 25Ks, where she was given QWCs. And she actually managed to win some matches there! Beat Hanna Kryvatulava, 3-6 6-3 6-4 in Q1 last week, before falling in Q2 to (16)Ganna Poznikhirenko, 1 & 1 Ganna went on to make the final in the end. This week, she beat Vasilisa Aponasenko, 4 & 4 in Q1, and (9)Alena Tarasova (WTA 620, CHR 411), 6-4 7-5 in Q2 before falling in Q3 to (5)Sviatlana Pirazhenka, 4 & 1.
Must have been a great experience for her, especially as Vika was hanging around there last week!

Other than that, she had a great March in Uzbekistan this week, making the final at G2 Tashkent ITF Juniors (as a LL ), and the semis at G3 Namangan International Junior Tournament the week after (as a qualifier this time )!
She got wins over Valeriya Yuschenko (#105), 1 & 1 and Ekaterina Kazionova (#102), 2 & 3 in Tashkent, before falling to top seed Anastasia Gasanova (#51), 2 & 4 in the final; in Namangan she beat top seed Berfu Cengiz (#112), 6-0 2-6 6-3 in QF before falling to the eventual champion Anastasia Potapova in SF, 7-5 2-6 1-6.

So she is able to snatch some great wins, but is still struggling with consistency so far. I think she has a potentially very good game, with her powerful, flat groundies and a serve that could become a real weapon; she's quite tall already and will definitely be a big girl. She still is very skinny but that's not uncommon for a girl her age.

Here are some clips of her SF (where she thrashed Sofya Lansere) and final (lost a very close match to Sofya Trescheva) matches at G14 Junior Kremlin Cup last November







She reached a CHR of 346 in April, this week she's #356.

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

Playing G3 Fergana Cup in Uzbekistan this week, she was the 6th seed but got upset by Sofya Lansere in R1 today, 2-6 6-4 6-7(4)

Maybe a bit tired?

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

After a break of month and a half, Yuliya was back at G3 China Junior 15 Guangzhou this week

Sadly, she lost in R1 to (4)Siqi Cao (#135, CHR 58; and Top 800 player in pros), 4 & 3

That was probably the toughest player she could draw in R1! Better luck next week I remember Olesya playing a few of these Chinese tourneys last year!

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

Yuliya played G2 China Junior 16 Beijing this week but she didn't have better success despite playing an unseeded player in R1 this time - lost to Hanyu Guo, 3 & 4

Pretty disappointing!

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

Ok, just checked Guo's profile and she's almost 2 years older than Yulka, and even though she dropped out of the Top 300 last week, she has a CHR of 181 and also has a pro ranking (she's just outside of the Top 800). And... she's the one who won the G3 in Guangzhou last week!

Unlucky

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

Yulchik was back at G3 Shymkent Open in Kazakhstan this week!

She was the 4th seed, beat Anastassiya Sharapova 1 & 1 in R1, (Q)Vera Markovic 6-1 5-0 ret. in R2, and Polina Bakhmutkina 7-5 6-0 in QF but she fell to local top seed Gozal Ainitdinova in SF today, 6-4 6-7 4-6

Ainitdinova is almost 2 years older though, she is a junior Top 150 player, and she also has a pro ranking... And she had the crowd support. Still nice that Yuliya made it very very close!

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

Yulchik played another tournament in Kazakhstan this week - G3 Ust-Kamenogorsk Juniors

She was the 2nd seed, beat Sofiya Gaisina 1 & 0 in R1, and (WC)Kamilla Bolatova 0 & 3 in R2, but she fell short against Polina Bakhmutkina in QF, 5-7 5-7

She should have played the Siberian Open G3, there were less dangerous players there...

Re: Yuliya Hatouka

Well she still swept the title in dubs with Gozal Ainitdinova today - they were the top seeds, beat 2nd seeds Alexandrova/Vishnevskaya 6-3 6-7(5) [10-7] in the final!
