She may not be the most promising Ukrainian junior player at the moment but I don't care, I like her.
Gulya is 16 (born Feb 27, 1998), she's Ukrainian but she's from Mosoow and lives there. She has been improving and climbing up the rankings steadily. This week, she's at her CHR of 167.
So far this year, she's played 6 tournaments and her best results are 3 G2 QFs and 1 G3 final!
The last tournament she's played was G1 Astrid Bowl, where she qualified and reached R3, beating seed 16 Maria Herazo Gonzalez in R2, before falling in R3 to the eventual tournament champion, seed 3 Iryna Shymanovich, in 3 tight sets.
Keep improving, Gulya!
