Two wins in Wimbledon qualies (over Olaru and Y.Sema), the latter a trademark one after losing the first set 1-6, send Julia for a match against veteran MEC in an attempt to make it 3 slam main draws out of the last 4.
Grass isn't the Italian's strongest surface (well, the same goes for Glushko herself) and it has to be said that Julia got a nice draw in these qualies.
These two wins will move Julia further up the rankings into the top 120, but she has half(!) of her ~550 ranking points to defend over the next two months up to and including the USO: 50K F, 25K SF, 50K title, 100K SF and finally USO R1.
(Or she could win her next two matches and then she probably won't have to play USO qualies at all
