Any news from Romania? Im surprised they havent announced any exos yet, considering the popularity of tennis there and the large pool of players they have.

Ukraine

Date: May 26th (The tournament will take place over 5 days - three days for group stage, then: semifinals and finals.)
Livestream: https://www.facebook.com/UkrainianTennisFederation

Players
Lesya Tsurenko
Marta Kostyuk
Lyudmila Kichenok
Nadiya Kichenok
Daria Lopatetska
Marianna Zakarliuk
Victoria Petrenko
Maria Bergen
So looks like the two Ukraine groups are :

Lesya Tsurenko
Daria Lopatetska
Victoria Petrenko
Lyudmila Kichenok

Marta Kostyuk
Marianna Zakarliuk
Nadiya Kichenok
Maria Bergen

Possibly end up with a Tsurenko-Kostyuk final, but it would be good if Marta tops her group and Lopatetska comes second in hers (as I assume that's how the SFs will work) and that would be a nice match, but the sisters might have a say in things. Not too fmailiar with Bergen or Petrenko.

I'm not sure where she's based, but Snigur would have been another interesting addition here.
