After YB reached the QF of WTA in Barcelona last April, always aware of those 86 points earned .....Barcelona was cancelled this year and YB lost to nmbr 2 seed Cadantu in WTA Katowice event late last night 75 62. Been a difficult few weeks, Yuliya played lots of WTA events, including Dubai and KL and Charleston - hideous draws, in fact in her past 6 tournaments since Fed Cup Yuliya drew a seed in four of them in R1.....kinder draws would have bolstered her a bit. Her ranking will fall from 170 mark to around 210, so hopefully things will turn around in the next few weeks. She deserves it!
Yuliya will be up again to around 205 next monday, enough to get into the qualies at Wimbledon.
She got to the final round of qualifying over the w/e at WTA Strasbourg, then lost to Pennetta 64 fs after 2.5 hours. Now at Roland Garros for French Open - not a great draw - Castano R1, but our girl has a chance. She is playing better again'
Indeed a tough draw for Yuliya indeed... but who knows..
Was some good there in Strasbourg, hopefully it gave her a good boost for Roland Garros...
Good luck Yuliya and Go for it :bounce

Yuliya beat Castano 62 64 in 1.30 minutes on court 3. Followed on live score, lots of close games but Yuliya was strong. After three breaks at the start of set 2, each girl held on to her serve. Thus Yuliya held 4 times consecutively from 21 with a break. At 54 Yuliya served out to love to win!
Goodness you need nerves of steel to follow the live scores, let alone play!!
