Hertzliya 25K qualies: http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...tid=1100030179

In 11 matches vs foreigners the Israeli players went 0-11, took a total of zero sets and 33 games
Looking at these results always makes me cringe

Luckily two sections had only Israeli players so two of them could qualify

Edit: one of the local qualifiers is a 14 y.o girl named Avital Vulf:

Very tall and is billed as "hopeful for the future" according to those who've seen her.
Trained at the Ramat Hasharon tennis center and left a year ago, no data where to.

Raanana 10K: http://beta.itftennis.com/procircuit...tid=1100026581

As usual, weak even for a 10K, but unusually the local girls are actually holding their own against most of the foreign ones, both in qualies and MD.
Don't know if that's saying much but any positive is news nowadays...
Of course the most significant news of this tournament is the return of its title-holder: http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....8&postcount=24

As for Lev Ari, that's nice, but I think to be upgraded to a "hope for the future" you have to start playing outside the yearly 3-4 local 10Ks.

By the way, Glushko lost to a player she had defeated 3 times before.

Seeing the results almost makes you wish they remained inactive
  • Glushko, seeded 5/Q, failed to qualify in Dothan (USA) 50K.
  • Khazaniuk (7/Q) and Shlomo (2/Q) at least played up to their seeds and made the MD in an Uzbek 25K (Keren just barely) before losing R1 in straight sets, Deniz against another qualifier with a very similar ranking (and age) to hers.
  • Lankri lost 1&0 in a 10K in Antalya.
  • Lee Or didn't make the MD in a 10K in Greece (at least she won a match).
  • Blecher got into a 10K in Peru(!) [which was supposed to have a 64Q draw and ended up not having qualies at all, with all 30 players there straight into the MD - haven't seen anything like that ] and lost R1.
  • And the talented, troubled one disappeared, again.
And it's not like our #1 player is doing great atm.
It's simply depressing to be an Israeli tennis fan these days and there's not even a sign that things are going to get any better.

No other source sorry

Re: Israeli hopes for the future?

I only know the names of Or and Blecher from previous local 10Ks and the national championships.
Thanks for the update. Do you get all the info from the ITF site or do you have any other source?
Still doesn't explain the inactivity of most of them (especially Lankri) over the last few months, and from Patiuk not on your list I take it she is still carrying an injury

Re: Israeli hopes for the future?

Why aren't the Israeli hopes (if you can call them that) playing this year?
Is Patiuk still injured? What about Lankri?
Khazaniuk has finally entered two 25K last month but that also doesn't exactly looks like the road to a pro-career.

Re: Israeli hopes for the future?

And as you posted elsewhere, Lankri lost to that Mexican player in the final.
With those points to be added next week, Khazaniuk would be about #645, Lankri #655, both inching within less than 10 ranking points from the top 600. The fact that over the past 8 years only seven players (counting Savransky) were at one point or another over that not-too-imposing barrier says a lot about the depth - or lack thereof - of Israeli tennis.

This week Khazaniuk lost to the same 1st seed in the semifinal of another 10k in Greece.

Ximena HERMOSO (MEX) (1) defeated Deniz KHAZANIUK (ISR) 6-4 7-6(0)

Lankri and Khazaniuk will play one against each other in the singles final.

When was the last time that two Israelis played against each other in a final outside of Israel?
Personally I don't recall any all-Israeli final abroad, though I haven't been following ITFs for that long so maybe someone else knows better

The Israelis had a great week in this 10K in Greece. They were 3/3 out of qualifying (albeit a single round), beat several seeds en route to this final - winner Khazaniuk comfortably took out the top seed, a Mexican ranked #500 - and very nearly took the doubles titles too (only 11 entries...), with the Israeli duo of Rona Lavian and Ekaterina tour losing the final from a set up.
BTW, in the opening round they faced Khazaniuk/Sakkari and won 2-6 6-2 [18-16]

Out of the currently unranked players, Lavian seems to be the most promising, going by recent results. I hope there will be a reason to make a new thread soon...
