Polinka is playing her very first G18 atm, at G5 Green Cu in St-Pet! She beat Alisa Kummel 6-7(3) 7-6(5) 6-3 in Q1 , 15 yo 5th seed Alexandra Abyasova 0 & 4 in Q2, but fell pretty badly to 14 yo Julia Adveeva (who thrashed 4th seed Belianovich in Q2) in Q3, 1 & 3
However, she's been given a 2nd chance as she still got in the MD as a LL! Her R1 opponent is 14 yo Sofia Brich (#1268, formerly Top 100 in U14)
Oh, I wish that I could feel
And I feel too real
For this grey moat
Polinka is playing the Cat. 3 G16 in Almetievsk this week.
She's the top seed there, had a bye, in R1, beat Polina Bezklubnaia (this name ) 1 & 1 in R2, and Anastasiya Feklistova (who upset 8th seed Lenskaya-Bogomolova in R2) 6-3 3-6 6-4 in QF today
In SF tomorrow, she'll face 4th seed Milana Zhabrailova, who dismantled her BFF & dubs partner 5th seed Anastasia Kostromitina today Hopefully she avenges Nastya, and faces 2nd seed Vlada Petrovskaia in the final - would be a good test... Davayyy!
Also, Kostrometova reached the final in dubs: they were the 2nd seeds, lost 3-6 6-2 [3-10] to top seeds Aleshina/Petrovskaia in the final
