Eventual Moscow finalist and future WTA star Potapova was too strong for Valentyna :sad:

Still a good tournament. Valentyna can be proud of herself. Glad that she showed her talent.

Valentyna played a great point at 3-1 15-0 ! :hearts:

She looks very fit, many muscles. This reminds me of Tsurenko, also from the look in general.
I would describe her game as a lesser Rodina. Ordinary/weak serve, but good/solid groundstrokes with a stronger backhand, overall good movement and defense. Yes, very similar to Rodina. Only not as strong.

I hope she keeps working hard and that she will reach the Top 100 soon ! :)

A heartbreaking loss in US Open Q1 for Valentyna :sobbing:

She had a tough draw and drew big talent Marta Kostyuk.

Valentyna had a 6-4 5-3 lead -> 6-7
and she wasted 2 MPs in the 2nd set :eek:

Valentyna was leading 4-0 and 5-1 in 3rd set -> 6-7
and she wasted 4 MPs in the 3rd set :help:

So after all this choking she eventually lost 6-4 6-7 6-7 ! :sad:

I hope she can forget this ugly loss quickly ...
