Happy birthday Ksyusha! 🎂🎈

She's playing the postponed Super Cat U14 tournament ONE SGM Christmas Cup near Moscow this week. She's through to the QFs after she beat (Q)Arina Varaksina 3 & 1 in R1, (9)Zara Darken 6-0 5-7 6-3 in R2; and Kira Bataikina (who thrashed 5th seed Lucia Hradecka in R2) yesterday in R3. :)


Very interesting QF vs. (1)Alina Korneeva awaiting today! Alina is almost 2 full years older, so obviously much more experienced (she has started playing on the ITF junior circuit) at this age, and she had amazing results in 2019, winning lots of very strong U12 tournaments (best result was winning U12 Eddie Herr).

Matches are streamed, the Alina-Ksenia match is scheduled to start after the current one (Derepasko-Mrva) is completed:

6:2 6:0 for Korneeva.. Alina was too good today. I also noticed Korneva is much taller than Ksenia. That age difference was very perceptible today. But overall good tournament for Ksenia. Losing in a quarter final against 1 seed is nothing to be ashamed of. Ksenia will hopefully make great progres at age 12 to be prepared for junior ITF tournaments.

Ksenia unfortunately had to retired from her quarter-final match against Tyna Caterina Grant. It s a big shame because Ksenia won first set 6:2.
Hopefully her health issue/injury isn't serious.

Ksenia reached 28 500 followers on Instagram. She is in the top 100 most followed female tennis players on instagram. That s really imppresive achievment at age 12. She is the youngest tennis player in history of instagram who reached the top 100 most followed players on instagram. Under age 18 there are only two female players with bigger fanbase on instagram - Coco Gauff - 718K followers (age 17) and Alexandra Eala 30.6K followers (age 16).
