Chesnokova Completes Impressive Jr. Orange Bowl Run

Young JMTA’er, Anastasiya Chesnokova, lost last week to fellow Ukrainian, 9th seeded Anastasia Poplavska in the 2nd round of the main draw of the 2013 Junior Orange Bowl.  That match culminated a week of tennis for Anastasiya.  Not ranked high enough to be placed directly into the main draw, Anastasiya won three straight matches in the qualifying rounds to make it to the main draw.  In the main draw, Anastasiya shocked Japan’s Riko Suzuki, 6-1, 6-1, before falling to Poplavska.  Felix Alvarado, Anastasiya’s Coach, is “very proud of Anastasiya and excited to see how she does in upcoming tournaments.”
