Ha, Lyuda is playing AO qualies, that's why she isn't playing that Chinese 50K with Nadiya, now I understand.
It actually hadnt crossed my mind at all that her ranking was high enough to allow her to play qualies. I believe this is her 1st Slam Q ever.
: I checked and it is indeed.)
She got a tough draw though, she's in the Seed 1 section.
(1)Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) v Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA)
Maryna Zanevska (UKR) v Jill Craybas (USA)
Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) v Cagla Buyukakcay (TUR)
Lyudmyla Kichenok (UKR)
v (21)Paula Ormaechea (ARG)
Tough 1st round, even though Paula has had a shaky start of the year. Do you best, little Lyuda.
