Stable position in the NR until Anastasia Rodionova!
However some good evolutions in the World ranking.
Nadia reached her ever best WR at n4. It seems that she erached another dimension in her game winning 2 tournements in a row in April (3rd of the year and 4th of her carreer). At Amelia Island Tier II, she won the tournement as Top seed beating 3rd seed/n13 dangerous Schiavone. At Charleston, she took the crown after a 3 sets victory over 3rd seed/n9 Schnyder. She's got big ambition for Roland Garros and starts to challenge the Top russian player status vs Sharapova.
Vera Dushevian is back to the world Top 50 after a 3rd rd at Amelia Island falling to 2nd seed/n9 Schnyder.
Elena Vesnina keeps rising in the world ranking. She made it to the 3rd round at Amelia Island upsetting 8th seed/n19 italian Pennatta dropping only 3 games.
Very bad month for Ekaterina Bychkova who lost 3 times in a row in the 1rst round (vs n51 Dushevina at Amelia Island, qualifer n80 Alona bondarenko at Charleston and n111 Rodionova at $75K challenger Cagnes s/mer). She's the biggest ranking slump of the month (excepted Elena Bovina because of her injury).
Vasilisa in the best ranking progression of the month...up 1 spot in the NR and 34 in the WR. She played the american ITF tour winning 2 $25K challengers in a row: at Pelham vs 8th seed/n203 Perianu and at Jackson vs 5th seed/n154 canadian Dubois. At $75K Dothan challenger, she was may be a little beat tired and was forced to retire in the 2nd rd vs 8th seed/n144 Poutchkova.
Olga is the 2nd best rising of the month: +2 places in the NR and 28 in the WR. Like Vasilisa, she played the north american challenger tour. She won $25K Hammond ousting 4th seed/n153 Bardina en route. At Dothan $75K, she reached the QF with once again a victory over Bardina before falling to eventual champion 3rd seed/n111 Fedak.
At least, Lioudmila is the new entry of the month. She also played on the challenger tour. 1rst at $75K Dinan, she ousted 10th seed/n131 Poutchek before losing to rising french n140 Rezai. At $75K Dothan she made it to the QF with a victory over 7th seed/n140 Voskoboevea in a thrilling 3 sets match before falling to eventual runner up 4th seed/n130 Lepchenko.
