Re: принце́са Oleksandra "Olyinyković" Olyinykova. From Ukraine with love.

I am actually wondering why BOTH Oliynykova & Sipek are not invited to National Team.

Sipek is 17 y.o. She could play U18... where Janko (!!!), Turkovic & Mamic (!!!) played.

Oliynykova is 16 y.o. She could play both U18 & U16 (Zelic, Pavkovic, Masic).

I believe that national coaches know what they are doing.

May be, in case of Oliynykova the reason is she is very unstable: she can play fantastic, and then immediately drop a match because of some minor stress. Nevertheless, this is a job of a team coach to find "ways and words" to a player, who during ITF Tournament won 14 sets of 14 played, and in 12 of them lost 2 games or less.

And - what about Lana Sipek? For last 2 months a girl played two ITF singles finals, and won 2 ITF doubles finals... but no National Team invitation, while we have there Matea Mamic & Leonarda Janko...

Re: принце́са Oleksandra "Olyinyković" Olyinykova. From Ukraine with love.

After winning a G5 two weeks ago, Princeza is playing the G4 in Slovenia this week.

She wasn't on the entry list, so had to go through qualifying (as the top seed). She won two matches (64 60 and 64 61).

She's seeded #6 in the MD, and today she won R1 over a local WC--but it was close: 64 76(4)

But that's 10 match wins and 20 sets won in a row

R2 will be tough, against a local girl ranked 550. Good luck!

Re: принце́са Oleksandra "Olyinyković" Olyinykova. From Ukraine with love.

+ Two weeks ago, Princeza was ranked 433

+ After winning the G5, she moved up to 363 last week

+ She didn't play last week, so failed to defend a bunch of points, so she's back down to 416 this week

+ She's dropping another 20 points in singles this week, but already defended 10 by winning today

Still not good enough for U16 National Team

We have #797-ranked player & non-ranked player there. Absolutely no chances for Oliynykovic.

Re: принце́са Oleksandra "Olyinyković" Olyinykova. From Ukraine with love.

It seems that she injured (or overworked, or simply tired) as she withdrawn from the tournament next week...

She was never on the acceptance list for next week. Perhaps she's planning to just show up and enter qualies, just like she did this week and two weeks ago. (Both times she was the top seed in qualies.)

Or perhaps you heard the news from her team...?

Princeza is (was?) in quali of Budaors Grade 2 & Budapest Grade 2.

She "feels not good" so they won't go to Budaors anyway.

I do not know what this "not good" exactly means, hope it is just a slight overworking so she will be able to continue with tournaments soon.

My personal opinion (NOT fact-based, just suggestion): Oliynykova was seriously overweighted in the beginning of this year. I mean "seriously" - may be, 10 kg or so. Last time I saw her on court, she looks OK. This means that she dropped more than 10 kilos of weight in several months, keeping hard practices and quite a lot of tournaments.

I guess she can't survive long tournaments series yet with her "new" body, she could be fastly exhausted 'cause a kind of diet, or special exercises etc.

But, again, it is just my suggestion...

Oleksandra lost to Peoni 5:7, 0:6.

Lead 5:4 and lost 9 games (!!!) in a row.

Head (mentality) is still a biggest problem here...

Peoni won the title last week though, dropping only 1 set, she's on a roll

Re: принце́са Oleksandra "Olyinyković" Olyinykova. From Ukraine with love.

Peoni won Grade 2 in Budaors last week, so she is definitely a good player (Grade 2 winners in Europe usually ranked inside top-100). Bad luck for Oleksandra to get her in quali, there were a lot of other options .

Wish Oleksandra to keep trying & fix her self-confidence problems (or find a way to control them).

In this generation (born 2000-2003) we actually do not have a wide choice of promising players in Croatia.

Oliynykova, Masic, Krznaric, Zelic, Sipek & Turkovic... 6 players for 4 born years. Not much.

Peoni finally won that tournament in Budapest. So may be Princeza was (a little bit) unlucky again in quali.

Re: принце́са Oleksandra "Olyinyković" Olyinykova. From Ukraine with love.

Princeza is playing $15K Heraklion qualies this weekend.

QR1: Bye

QR2: Against 18 yo Krolitzky, who has a junior CHR of #69 earlier this year. In May she beat Stamatova (CHR 451) and in June she won her second $15K doubles title.

I though for sure Princeza would lose. Instead, she gave Krolitzky the worst loss of her professional career: 60 60
