Katia would be better prepared for the WTA Tour if she had stayed in the juniors.

I think she's about 5'6" tall.

How has she done in the challengers?

And I gather injuries have slowed her developement.

That's a good link supplied by janie.
In late July, Afinogenova won four straight matches to go through the qualifiers and get to the quarters in a 10k in Italy. She lost to Petra Diznar, but gained 3.25 points. She beat the #2 seed, Leanne Baker.
