I can't believe there wasn't a thread for one of Ukraine's rising stars.

She's born on 12 September 1994. She's the reigning junior Roland Garros Champion and has been the ranked number 1 on the ITF circuit. On the professional tour, she has also made the finals of a 25K losing to another talented teenager, Lyuda Kichenok. Her highest WTA ranking is 548.

Let's all cheer for her as she rises up the rankings soon and be a real star on the WTA tour!

She's one of the most promising girls :)
She lost in QF in a 25K Ukraine, but she can be really satisfied with herself ;)

Elina lost in the SFs of Yucatan G1 to Puig. Good tournament for her, should solidify her position in the top 5 & guarantee her some JE into ITFS next year :)

Elina plays in Eddie Herr Champs this week. It's one of the biggest junior tournaments outside of Slams and she's seeded as number two in singles.;)

Next match against Elizaverta Nemchinov in second round. Don't know this girl, but she played in qualifying, so I suppose, Elina should win this one easily.

Elina is also the highest seed with Yulia Putintseva (my other favorite:hearts:) in doubles, which starts on Thuresday.

Good luck to Elina:yeah:

Elina started off the season at 25K at Andrezieux-Boutheon, France. She lost in the second round of qualies to Alize Lim in 2 tiebreak sets. Look like she could very well have won the match in straight sets as well. Good luck to her next tournament.

Nice to see she managed to take a set off Dokic, though it would have been more amazing to see her pull the upset. How did she get the WC... was it because she's the FO junior champion?
