I couldn't find any thread about her with the search engine. But please delete this thread if there's already one!

Amina Rakhim is currently the only Kazakh girl on the rankings! She stands now at #512 thanks to her recent good results. In Georgia she reached SF then F of 10k's in Tbilisi, and then, as a qualifier, she upset Cristea among others to reach the SF of 25k Batumi.

Amina is also #31 on the junior rankings at the age of 17.

I hope she'll get bigger in seniors! good luck! nice to see newcomers from coutries we don't often hear about :)

Anyway, she lost in the 10k finals this week in Pune. :sad: :sad:

I just came back from Pattaya and I saw Amina play. She has improved a lot. She can now hit aces off her serve, both hard and flat down or slice it out wide. She also has added more power in her groundstrokes. She can hit winners of both her forehand and backhand. She is still the amazing counterpuncher as well, getting to all the balls. :)

I'm so happy that she beat Sunitha as well.

So, she got 2 points for Pattaya and 4 points for Bagalore. :)
