Amazing that Yana started out the year without a ranking and has risen to #696 in the world! Also, this month she grabbed her first career title, the 10K Williamsburg, VA on clay.

For that she makes In the News... on the Russian Watch :)

^ Good question...probably not :p

She got to the finals of a 10K in Cuba, and makes In The News on this week's RW :)

Miss Koroleva popped into my head the other day, and I said to myself, "Whatever happened to her? Is she injured? Hopefully she isn't gone for good, because she really seemed talented." So I went and did a bit of digging, and guess what I found... Okay, here's a hint: Go Clemson! :)

That's good to know! Her ranking is gone now, as she hasn't played in a year.

Well, haven't seen this girl in draws for years, but now she suddenly pops up again. In the 25K QD for Raleigh, USA, this is her section.

(2)Di Zhao (CHN) v BYE
Tristen Z. Dewar (USA) v Tanya Noury (USA)
Elyse Steiner (USA) v Alexandra Aiello (USA)
(11)Hayley Carter (USA) v Yana Koroleva (RUS)

Making a come back after what, 2 years? She is still only 19! Good luck on your comeback, Yana :yeah:

:woohoo:

Actually, she stopped playing ITF to attend school, Clemson University in South Carolina. Probably on a tennis scholarship.

Here's her page: http://www.clemsontigers.com/sports/...va_yana00.html

She's also on Twitter.

Yana ran over Elyse, 60 62. Now faces #2 Di Zhao for a spot in the main draw. Zhao leads their h2h 1:0.

Alexandra Stevenson (USA) v (Q)Samantha Crawford (USA)
Alexis King (USA) v Maria-Fernanda Alves (BRA)

^ Not the most elegant picture :p But she has chances for more. Won her first main draw match since Sept. 2010, defeating Whitney, 60 62. So far has only lost 12 games in 4 matches.

Up next, Alexis King. Alexis has a 1:0 lead in the h2h.
