Nina played a lot in Kazakstan btw. I first saw her at our President's Cup back 6 or 7 years ago, cheered for her and she thanked me after the match :angel: Since that time I follow her results but I could never even dream her making 3rd round at a GS! :woohoo:
Well done to Nina! It looks like all those interminable GS qualies may be a thing of the past for 2012 as she will be well into the top 100 after this event. Benesova is definitely a winnable match, considering who Nina has beaten this year.
But totally amazing turnaround in form, whether she's added something new to her game or just feeling more happy and confident. :worship:
