By virtue of defeating Zvonareva, Makarova will break into the TOP 50 in the next rankings. Also, she reaches her first-ever tour quarterfinal.

She has now three TOP 20 wins, all in 2008:

#19 A. Szavay - Australian Open
#17 N. Vaidisova - Rome
#13 V. Zvonareva - Eastbourne

Last year, at this point, she was ranked #180. So quite a big jump for her in 52 weeks!

Good luck Makarova! Nice job!!!!!!

well done. is it odd that she has just made her first WTA tour quarter-final and ranked in the top 50? Or does she just consistently win rounds?
