Hey Paul. How could you dig out those kids? They look awesome.



Mostly I found these on the Fed Cup & ITF Juniors sites. Ganna P & some others on the thread are found just by going to Google Images with the girl's name.


 


Russian Victoria Kan just went out 61 64 to Caroline Garcia--playing in Juniors:humm:No shame for Victoria on that one but perhaps we should review Garcia's path in the RG Juniors draw... 


Daria Gavrilova RUS (1) seed in Juniors, moves to 3rd round. 


Sometimes surly Yulia Putinitseva def Uzbek Sabina Sharipova 63 61 to move thru to 3rd round. 



 


The "blue Russians" are falling fast now. :bye2: Only Zanevska & Kovalets of Ukraine go to the 3rd round. 



Yes we are losing our best tennis player at Roland Garros. Masha is the last hope for a victory at this tournament. But with her courage and determination, she can reach the final of this tournament. 


Let's see her match. 


Zanevska has big legs. They remember me the legs of serena williams. 


Davai Zanevska!!!!!!


 


I created confusion with the arrangement. The pictures here are of Putintseva, not Zanevska.


Zanevska is still in doubles BTW, reaching 2nd round doubles with Irina Khromacheva:brav:


And I left out someone:  KOVALETS, Sofiya UKR also made the 3rd round singles.


 


Here is Maryna Zanevska:


 


Daria Gavrilova at Roland Garros: Outfit look familiar? :brav:

Khromacheva: we played as a real team




Хромачёва: мы сыграли как настоящая команда

Winners of the Roland Garros junior doubles tournament Irina Khromacheva and Marina Zanevska talked about feelings after winning; sympathy in the upcoming men's final and much more.




Russian woman Irina Khromacheva and Ukrainian Marina Zanevska, trainees at the academy of Justine Henin, won the Roland Garros junior doubles tournament. In the finals they defeated the Russian-Dutch duo - Victoria Kahn and Demi Shuurs - 6:4, 7:5. Thus, Irina and Marina for the whole tournament not lost to their rivals any set. At a press conference after winning the girls talked about feelings after a victory, how they formed their pair, whose side will be their sympathy during the men's final and much more.

- Tell me about your feelings after the victory.
Irina (K)Hromacheva: 
For me, this is the first "hat", so of course I'm very glad. Marina is the second, it is steeper (laughs) . It's good that we managed to win in two sets and it did not reach the championship tie-break, although we concede 3:5 and rivals was setbol. But Marina at this moment perfectly played. In critical moments we were a real team, I think that it is due to this we are today and won.


- It was hard to adjust to after a couple of offensive failures in singles?
IH: 
Of course, I was upset defeat alone, the more I have reason to hope for a little bad luck. But Marina has supported me, made ​​me forget about the failure and said: "Come on, you can do it!" - So she could cheer me. I realized that I still have a chance to win the "hat", if we can play well together. We trained for a year and know each other well.


- You'll be playing together next?
IH: 
Yes, of course. At this tournament we have won all in two sets, so, of course, very happy about this successful performance, and look forward to continuing to play together. Marina is not going to Wimbledon, so we will meet some other time.

- In singles tournament as a junior first four seeded failed to reach even the semifinals. What does this show?
IH: 
We have a lot of good players who are not seeded in the tournament, but already have some sort of ranking WTA. The competition has grown in recent years. And as for such major tournaments as Roland Garros, gather all the tennis players.


- Once you see the performance of Carolyn Garcia in the adult tournament, did you think about what you can do to meet her in the finals?
IH: 
No, I thought only of the semi-finals, since I first had to pass this round. 
I've been here last year was in the semifinals and played it less well than at this time. Therefore, only thought about this round.

- What have you failed?
IH: 
Yes, in principle, everything turned out. Of course, I can again say that the fault line, but, unfortunately, good luck this time was on the side of an opponent. I led in the third set with a score of 4:2. The next time this error at this point I do not have it, I'll be more focused.


- This doubles final was a consolation to you, after the failure of the singles?
IH: 
I would not say that it is very very unfortunate. Semifinals at Grand Slam "- it is always a good result. I'm a little podustala since played many tournaments before, plus I played here in both discharges. Generally win as a big tournament is always a pleasure, even if it doubles. I am happy that I won anything.

- Do you have an official site. Whose idea who practice it?
IH: 
My brother. This is a birthday gift. This site takes the whole team, headed by his brother (smile) . They are promoting it. I am very glad that I have a brother. He came to this tournament only because of me.


- Do you take part in the work of this site?
IH: 
Yes, of course. I answer the questions fans.


- Do you have a lot of fans?
IH: 
Yes, a lot (smile) .


- Tell me how you formed for this tournament? Which match was the most challenging?
IH: 
Of course, the most difficult was the finale. You look a little nervous, huh?

Marina Zanevska: Yes, a little bit.
IH: I'm now very nervous, and Marina at the crucial moment I supported. We have a good team, and fortunately, we won in two sets. As well as challenging was the first round, because at the start it is important to get involved in the game. In general, we walked through the tournament pretty smoothly.

- What is the strength of your pair?
LH: 
At the right moment, we support each other. I play more physical tennis and Ira can vary the strokes. Each offers something different in our overall game. But most importantly, we are a team, excellent feel each other, long familiar with.Courage and adrenaline, which we get from cooperative games, throws on the court.


- You're exercising in the same academy. Specially steam train combination?
MZ: 
It is not often, but a couple of times it was.

IH: Rarely. We played together a couple of years ago.

- If, for example, Santa Claus allow you to exchange the doubles title at the opportunity to play in tomorrow's final, what would you say?
IH: 
I do not know. I wanted to reach the final. I regret that I failed once again to fight with Jabeur, whom I lost last year. But I know my mistakes and hope that next time they have not already done.


- Why do you think  in Russia and Ukraine are so many promising girls and boys are practically none?
MZ: 
Boys are always harder to break. As everyone can play tennis, so it is very important psychology, skill at the right moment to add. They are much above the competition.


- You are this year's sole representatives of your countries, who managed to win at Roland Garros. How does it feel?
IH: 
I'm very happy. For me it was the second final. Last year at Wimbledon, I with Elina Svitolina lost in three sets. Marina and I managed to win, we know each other a long time. Somewhere she is holding the back line, I'll run out and the summer I will play, or vice versa. We have a good feel of each other. We play different football, but if you put our acts together, then to beat us is very hard.


- What is your favorite surface?
IH: 
In principle, it has always been the bottom. But I also love the grass, I liked that year to play at Wimbledon, as well as hard.

MZ: Hard, though I have more titles on the ground (laughs) . So I'm trying to figure out what I love most.

- Are you going to play together on the US Open?
MZ: 
It is not known. If I take part in the tournament, we play together.


- At the academy frequently communicate with the one whose name it is called?
IH: 
Justine often comes to the academy, looking after our workouts, watching bugs, shares his experience. Carlos is also present in training almost every day.


- How to Henin's behavior in communicating with you?
IH: She
 is absolutely normal with all the talking, not acting
 like a star. She behaves like an ordinary person. (laughs) .

- She was your idol?
IH: 
I liked the way she plays.

MZ: Yes, it has always been and will be.

- And of the existing tennis players who would you like to be?
Maryna Zanevska: Maria Sharapova. I like her style of play.
 

IH: Caroline Wozniacki and Kim Clijsters.

- Totally different styles!
IH: 
Yes, I have every wish to take one thing. If we talk about who is more like it, it's Kim.


- Marina, tell us about yourself, how you started playing tennis?
MZ: 
I'm from Odessa. In tennis began playing at age eight. The first five years trained there with the same coach. Then look for options - half trained at the academy in the U.S. have Roddick, still half a year in Germany. Exactly three years ago after Roland Garros, I went to the academy Henin. I liked it, I liked them, we found a common language.


- Irina, you've gone there at about the same time! Immediately became friends?
- Yes. As she arrived, I told her as soon as all the academy showed.

- Someone from the Russian-speaking girls else is there?
MZ: Elina Svitolina, Natalia Ryzhonkova. Now a lot of little boys and girls.


- Will you watch women's final?
(Chorus) - Yes, we will be rooting for Schiavone.

- Why for?
IH: 
I think this is the only player who can play on clay. She plays the head, varies her tennis.


- A watched yesterday's semifinals?
IH: 
I'm rooting for Djokovic, but he lost.


- And in the men's final of whom will be?
IH: 
For Federer. I like how he plays.

MZ: He's a god.
IH: If he wins, Djokovic will be the first (laughs) . This is also a plus.

Indeed many Americans and Canadians have some sort of Irish connection due to emigration
during the famine. Even Barack Obama recently visited Ireland and he met his 8th cousin!

Also Ireland's Conor Niland has qualified for the final round of the qualifying stages so I'll be rooting for Niland, Diatchenko and Zvonareva (who thankfully defeated Serena today) tomorrow!

I will watch for Niland, then.  Weather has permitted only four women's qualies to finish today. Vitalia's hmatch has not even started, so she may play tomorrow.


Here is her opponent, Stephanie Dubois of Canada.

Before rain cancelled play again, we lost two more--Rodionova & Bratchikova, both in tough three-setters. So now we got:

Really hope Diatchenko can come through. 


Gotta say, I gotta wonder if Ukrainians are being systematically excluded. Only TWO are admitted to the main draw--the sisters Bondarenko, one in the top half & the other in the bottom.


Five entered the qualifications, & the last two standing "just happen" to play each other. 


This is very minimal representation compared to recent tournaments, including majors. 


 


Looks like Niland will come thru 3rd round in straight (3) sets.  He did.


Diatchenko takes 1st set of final round 63.

Galina Voskoboeva KAZ Will play Alexa Glatch USA


Tetiana Luzhanska UKR will play Lesia Tsurenko UKR (15) 



Before rain cancelled play again, we lost two more--Rodionova & Bratchikova, both in tough three-setters. So now we got:

Really hope Diatchenko can come through. 


Gotta say, I gotta wonder if Ukrainians are being systematically excluded. Only TWO are admitted to the main draw--the sisters Bondarenko, one in the top half & the other in the bottom.


Five entered the qualifications, & the last two standing "just happen" to play each other. 


This is very minimal representation compared to recent tournaments, including majors. 


 


Looks like Niland will come thru 3rd round in straight (3) sets.  He did.


Diatchenko takes 1st set of final round 63.





 


Diatchenko through in straight sets 6:3 6:2 so wonderful to see both players qualify for the main draw!  hopefully the draw will be kind enough for both of them

 for Vitalia. Well, use of qualies in the draw... y'know...  Upside is for a qualifier, it doesn't matter that much. Success is determined whether they can go more than one round after the qualifying grind. Get to a 2nd or third round, a qualifier has something to brag up & way more points than they had before. 


Ivanova out, but Voskoboeva looking pretty good. Tsurenko won the Ukranian contest.

True. If Dani doesn't play, the first opponent would likely be a lesser player. But Dani & Vitalia ARE on the Monday schedule:






Stephanie Dubois did come thru anyway as a lucky loser. She'll play Irina Falconi (USA).


See that Voskoboeva lost that long breaker to Glatch. (10-12) So the only Rus qualifiers are Diatchenko and Lesia Tsurenko UKR -- Lesia pitted against Nastia PavlyuchenkovaThey are also on the Monday schedule.


Lesia (or Lesya) Tsurenko
