Bondarenko Back In Top 100 With Tashkent Title

Bondarenko back in top 100 with tashkent with title

WEEK: 10.02.2017

Kateryna Bondarenko gets the mover of the week honors and they are well deserved.  Coming back from prolonged time off is never easy; it is psychologically taxing to fight back to the level you once were and it’s also physically demanding. Bondarenko’s physical fitness was tested during the Tashkent Open tournament this past week en route to the title, as rain delays caused her to play several matches in one day prior to the final. She defeated Timea Babos 6-4, 6-4 to claim the title. It was her first title since 2008 and it comes after a few years of inconsistent results on Tour; thus, it is all the more sweet for the Ukrainian.
