Tsurenko was an ITF-dweller all of last year I think, but this is a tremendous effort from her. Anyone know anything about her game? She seems dangerous...

Overall the underdog of the QD. I guess not many pictured her coming out of that key, probably because of Watson and Voegele. But its nice to see an ITF girl to take a stand and qualify for a GS.

Tsurenko played her first ITF match after her 18th birthday, that's the reason her breaktrough is taking place relatively late. She hits flat, is very cute and also very nice;)

Solid way through to the MD for Lesya, unexpected result I have to say! She keeps improving steadily, that's good sign!
Mariya :hug: but well, winning two matches is already a miracle nowadays

Lesya is a headcase, but sh has a really nice game. Usually taking balls early and directing pace very well, but very error-prone.

Who would have thought that Tsurenko would qualify in a half with Watson, Voegele, Tatishvili and Mladenovic? :lol:

Well done nevertheless. :)
