Good to see Momma K. Bondarenko has qualified!
This was how she won junior Wimbledon. She made every other player there appear like a dunce while she was the dux - and it wasn't even close.This is the first time I saw Snigur play, she is not a power player but she hits with awesome precision to win rallies. Fully stretched out on the FH side, she finds amazing angles going cross court. Final score 60 61
There is just one seed left (Kucova), and she may not last past today if Diatchenko continues this run of form. The amazing stat ahead of this match is that they have played each other just twice before this - in the semi-final of this tournament in 2008, when Diatchenko went on to win the title, and here again in the first round in 2014, when Diatchenko won in straight sets..Going forward:
I have not changed my mind since yesterday. Krunic looks good in the bottom half to get to the finals, if she does not have one of her meltdowns. Top half has so much talent, it is between 19 year old Qinwen, 19 year old Snigur and 22 yr old Gasanova
