Since other Ukrainian girl from the same year Dayana Yastremska has been having her own thread for over a year now, I think Katarina deserves hers too - even more now she's through to the SFs (as well as Yastremska) of European Junior Championships this week in U14 category. :)



Katarina is 14 yo, she was born on May 2, 2000 in Lutsk, NW Ukraine. She's right-handed with a double-handed backhand.

She's had a really brilliant year so far: SFist in G14 Les Petits As (she was seed 11 and lost to seed 4 Claire Liu 2 & 4 in SF); finalist in G14 TIM Essonne (she was seed 2 and lost to top seed Olesya Pervushina in the final - double-bagelled :sobbing: :hug:); SF at G16 International Children's Day Cup (she was seed 3 and lost to top seed Ekaterina Vishnevskaya in QF, 3-6 6-7(5)); R3 at G14 Open des jeunes Stade Francais - BNP Paribas Cup (she was seed 8 and lost to seed 9 Maria Lourdes Carle, 7-5 2-6 3-6 in R3).

She's also played 3 G18 tournaments this year: in April in Bulgaria, G2 Plovdiv Cup, where she was given a MDWC but fell in R1 to Lana Slavica, 2-6 5-7 :hug:, & G3 Kenana Cup, where she qualified but fell to fellow qualifier Tanja Stojanovska 4-6 4-5 ret. in R1 as well; and in June in Moldova, she qualified for G5 Head Cup and reached QFs! (lost in QF to fellow qualifier Ylona-Georgiana Ghioroaie, 4-6 7-5 4-6 :hug:).

She's ranked #1447 this week, she got her 1st ranking right after her G5 Head Cup QF appareance and has a CHR of 1411. ;)



And, as I was saying at the beginning, this week she's through to the SFs of European Junior Championships, in U14 category, as seed 12! :yippee: :yeah:

Here is her road to the SF: she had a bye in R1, beat Sofia Nami Samavati 1 & 1 in R2, Simona Borisova 4 & 1 in R3, (5)Anda Karanusic 2-6 6-3 7-5 in R4 :yeah:, and Karolina Tilander (who took out (4)Olga Danilovic 3 & 3 in R4) 2 & 0 in QF. :eek: :worship:

Now, SF vs. top seed (and world #366) Olesya Pervushina. :scared: I don't think she can win this one, but hopefully she can make it a fight, play a close set or something. :) Davay! :cheer::cheer:

She fell to Pervushina in the SF, quite expectedly - but this time it was much better, as she took a set from her! :yeah: (I recall that in their previous encounter she got double-bagelled :hysteric:).

2-6 6-2 1-6. :hug: Congrats on a great week! :yeah:



She also reached the final in doubles, along with fellow Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska:

Doubles final

Olesya PERVUSHINA/Anastasia POTAPOVA(1) d. Dayana YASTREMSKA/Katarina ZAVATSKA(2), 6-7(5) 6-0 10-7. :hug:

Pervushina d. Zavatska 6-3 4-6 6-3 :hug:

She lost, but she played a very good match, gave Pervushina a really hard time. :yeah: She wasn't bothered at all by Pervushina's bomb serves and power, it really was an even match for the 1st 2 sets. She hit some beautiful dropshots! :hearts: In set 3, she seemed to have pain in her left thigh, physio came out for her twice, and that final set wasn't as close as the 2 previous ones. :hug:

But head up, Katya played a great match and fought really hard (she was a break down in set 2), she definitely has some great potential! :yeah:
