Wimbledon Q1: (30)Kalinskaya d. Kostyuk 6-1 7-5

Anna.

Marta has still yet to prove she's not the next Larcher de Brito/Kutuzova.

Grass clearly not the surface for Marta. Hope she can continue to improve her ranking on clay and HC after Wimbledon.

I still think Kostyuk is going to very good, this is disappointing loss though, Kalinskaya is very beatable .

Getting routined by Kalinskaya is pretty bad whichever way you want to spin it. Especially seeing as she made the final round of qualifying here a year ago.

Kalinskaya is a strong player on grass

I watched the match. Kalinskaya played smart, got lots of first serves in and stayed with Kostyuk in the rallies. Kostyuk couldn't keep it in the court. She's strong off the ground but has no idea how to win a match.

It was a rough old court and Marta just couldn't time her shots. Anna very impressive though.

Re: Wimbledon Q1: (30)Kalinskaya d. Kostyuk 6-1 7-5

There are quotes from both players in this story from Roehampton from the Guardian:

Quote:
For the 16-year-old Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk, the playing venue is a mental challenge in itself. “It feels like we are outsiders,” she says. “I understand to some point the court has to be completely new. But it’s kind of upsetting. You feel you are too far from the people in the main draw. There are players that are proud [to be here], but I’m not like that. I’m like: ‘Why am I playing so bad that I’m in qualies?’”
Quote:
During her first-round win, the young Russian Anna Kalinskaya bantered with her team throughout and onlookers laughed as her friend suggested that running faster to the ball would increase her chances of buying more Balenciaga clothes. “Motivation is different for everyone. In our case it’s Balenciaga, Hermes, Selfridges, 60% off,” the friend said aloud, laughing.
Kalinskaya qualified for the main draw, so looks like designer clothes are quite the motivator actually.

People underestimate Kalinskaya, or just want to make Kostyuk look bad, but I keep an eye on Anna and I expect her in the top 30, in the future.
