That's a shame, but it further goes to show she has more in her than winning back-to-back-to-back some of the weakest 10Ks ever played, and she can play with better players.
Zec-Peskiric is a former top 100 player.
Khazaniuk has won no less the six 10K futures this year, probably a national record (I wonder what's the WR...), but has never made it past R2 of a 25K, and is unlikely to do so this week in Hertzliya - if she beat a qualifier in R1 then top seed Glushko will be waiting next.
According to Tapuz tennis forum, she is then heading for a weak 25K in Seoul in which she will be ranked and should crack that barrier, and then two Thai 15K tourneys, so should rack up some easy points and can break into the top 300.
Deniz will be playing her former Fed-Cup teammate Julia Glushko tomorrow.
Deniz Khazaniuk def. (Q)Alexandra Artamonova 4-6 6-4 6-4
Does anybody know if there is still bad blood relating to the Fed Cup allegations made by Deniz in late 2011-12? If so, this could be an emotional match with Julia. On the other hand, Deniz clearly deserves to be on next year's team based on her current rankings.
