Ekaterina Tour
 
Given her recent performance at Ashkelon(is now in the semi-finals) I think she deserves her own thread. Additionally, she has my vote as the best looking Israeli tennis player at the moment.

That's great!
Also worth mentioning that on the way to the final she also beat for the first time in her career a top 500 player (Khazaniuk) and a top 400 player (Kirilova)

1R: Ekaterina TOUR (ISR) 6-4 4-6 7-6(3) Deniz KHAZANIUK (ISR) [7]
2R: Ekaterina TOUR (ISR) 6-4 6-3 Francesca STEPHENSON (GBR)
QF: Ekaterina TOUR (ISR) 6-0 6-4 Ksenia KIRILLOVA (RUS) [2]

What a pity she lost the final after winning the opening set 6-1 :[ (1-6 2-6 in the next two)
Great week but a missed opportunity for her first title. She'll get to about #900 next Monday.
And to think the Romanian winner was taken in R1 to a 3rd set TB by unranked WC Lee Or (who haven't won as much as a 10K MD match in two years).

I don't know if Shir Perkis (daughter of former top-60 ATP player Shahar Perkis - wearing a yellow cap in the photo) counts as she seems to have quit two years ago at 17, but if she does she gets my vote:

I guess I should have been more specific and referred to competitive tennis players, not merely anyone who has ever picked up a racket!
