16 yo Katya (born January 25, 2000) has posted a great win in Q2 of 25K Minsk today (she had a bye in Q1): she upset 7th seed Ilona Kremen (WTA 650, CHR 201), 4-6 7-5 6-1
She'll face 9th seed Viktoryia Mun (WTA 1009, CHR 957...) in Q3 for a spot in the MD - it's a real must win!
This win is very welcome because Katya's had a very bad year so far - she's played only junior tournaments and has only won 1 MD match (record so far is 1-7
). Hopefully this win will be a great boost!
She has no pro ranking, her junior current ranking is 397 (CHR 325).
Her best results last year were 2 finals, which she both lost closely
(3-6 6-4 4-6 against Marta Kostyuk at Cat. 2 G16 Pinsk; 6-3 2-6 4-6 against Yuliya Hatouka at G5 Gennadi Petrov Memorial Cup).
Good luck for tomorrow and the future Katya!
