Vasilisa made it to the final. All Russian final One win away from her biggest achievement so far. A win means more or less all of the points she's to defend for this year are covered. Good luck in the final, should finish in the top 300 at the end of this year
Vasilisa playing Batumi 50 K. this week

Nadejda Ostrovskaya vs. (Q)Olga Panova
Nina Bratchikova vs. Irina Kuzmina
(7)Vasilisa Bardina vs. (LL)Ekaterina Ivanova
Expected not to leave Batumi empty-handed. Depending on Nina's form, she may go further than second round. Could be QF or even SF. Good luck Vasilisa.
