Championat -- Diatchenko has made her way into the main draw of the tournament in Linz
Rossiyanka Vitalia Diatchenko in the final qualification for the tournament in Linz, confidently overcame Briton Anne Keotavong 6:4, 6:2. 21-year-old native of Sochi, who occupies 128th place in the WTA rankings--her opponent in the first circle of the main competition will be known after the draw.
Another representative of Russia Evgeniya Rodina lost to Frenchwoman Stephanie Foretz-Gacon - 1:6, 5:7.
(Actually the draw is up but qualies yet to be assigned: http://www.wtatennis.com...posting/2011/528/MDS.pdf )
Update: Vitalia assigned to target Ksenia Pervak in the first round--in the dark. Linz "draw" clearly manipulated by the WTA cold warriors. No, I'm cutting no slack anymore. When you watch the same shit pulled on Russians in almost every frackin' tournament, you are just plain stupid not to draw the appropriate conclusions.
