Didn't see a thread for this young Ukrainian so here it is!
Born in 1993 and says her favorite surface is clay.
Her best win at this moment was over #280 Lesya Tsurenko 6-4 7-5
No idea how her future will be like but it will be nice to cheer for her. Was not a bad junior at all with a 57-27 record. Has not played juniors at all this year however. Qualified this week in a 10k in Turkey.
She won another straight sets match and is now in the final against Danielle Harmsen :worship:
