60k Istanbul F: Vitalia Diatchenko (1) d. Ankita Raina (6) 6-4 6-0

While the WTA had 18 different winners so far this year Vita claims her 5th ITF title of the year conceding only 12 games along the way.
Before this week she was the undisputed indoor spring queen winning 25k Grenoble, 60k Shrewsbury, 60k Croissy-Beaubourg and 25k Bolton. Good to see her bring it outdoors as well! Safely back into Top100 for now and hopefully she will attack the WTA now and stay healthy for once.

Ankita Great week for her too with a strong win over Marie Bouzkova!

Ankita had a great week as well. Must be great for her confidence and will reduce the pressure of making the GS QDs immensely.

What an incredible week for Vitalia! I doubt she will do too much on clay but I hope she can stay fit and healthy for the grass where she can do some damage at tour level.

Vitalia should stop playing ITF and prove herself on WTA level.

Ugh, healthy Vitalia would be solid TOP 50 player and have had respectable career in tour

Glad she's been up to some good work! Was hoping to see more from her after she saved tennis at Wimbledon last year.

15 match winning streak overall and has won her last 25 matches on the ITF tour.

She should be done playing ITF for the year you'd think so we'll see how she does on the main tour now.

Bravo, Vitalia. It is truly ... a vital victory for her Also well done to Ankita (ok, maybe bar that bagel to end this tournament). She gets closer to top 100 ranking, she's not a Mirza-level of talent but it would be great to have an Indian player making waves on the Main Tour again.

She's the most underrated beauty on WTA tour If only she was a top player on WTA tour.

Sharapova, who?

BTW. either way I really like Diatchenko's game as well. Her 2-handed strokes look cool.

Diatchenko has a lot of game if she could stay healthy. She was impressive blasting Sharapova out of Wimbledon

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
