Anna Blinkova wins her first WTA main draw match!

EMPIRE Tennis Academy member Anna Blinkova shows impressive performances at prestigious Kremlin Cup in Moscow. Not only she got through the qualifying, but she also won her first main draw WTA match.

Kremlin Cup was played in Moscow with prize money 800 000 USD on hard court indoor. Anna Blinkova beat Bulgarian Kostova, Turkish Buyukakcay and Argentinian Podoroska in the qualies. All were wins in 2 sets.  
Playing in the main draw in Russia was a big challenge for Anna. Blinkova surprisingly beat Latvian Sevastova after incredible drama in the three sets 4-6, 6-1, 7-6(10). In the second round, Blinkova was to play Croatian Konjuh but withdrew because of injury. "It's a great honor for me to reach the 2nd round of Kremlin Cup from qualifying and I'm really sorry that I couldn't continue fighting because of my leg injury. Thanks to everyone who has supported me during this great event, I really appreciate all that you guys have done for me," said Blinkova.
Anna Blinkova  also moved up the WTA ranking. She should be at 203rd place!
