mk07 I happen to watch her play during the telecast of her match during the Sunfeast open held in India, against Flavia Penneta from Spain

She won the game against Flavia, whom she sent all over the court, chasing her shots. Though the game did have some umpiring calls which were questionable that was definitely not the reason why Flavia Penneta’s points were where they were.

She has been playing WTA events since 2002 and is on her way to become the star of the courts. Ranked 26th in the world and wielding a Yonex racquet and sporting Adidas gear the 20 yr old hails from Russia is to be watched.
