I actually follow Kenin's career closely too and she's just sooo unlucky with her ITF draws
She's still one of the top girls from 1998 (not close to Shishkina tough as the result from here shows) but she's never reached an ITF SF as she's drawn the eventual in early rounds in half of the tournaments she's played so far
