Nika received a MDWC at 15K Kazan, and she lost her R1 match to Maria Timofeeva (14 yo, no pro ranking, junior #58/CHR 47), 6-7(5) 5-7 today.
And boy, did she choke hard in this match. 1st set: up *5-3 40-30 and 6-5* 40-15 + once AD up; 2nd set: up *4-3 40-15 -> broken and *5-4 30-0 -> broken
She really should have won at least that 1st set...
Other than that, I guess it was a promising match against a very promising kid (Masha made the SFs of last week's Kazan satellite, which was her 1st pro tournament ever!).
