Bolsova Vaults Up The Rankings


Mover of the Week: Aliona Bolsova

Twenty-one-year-old Aliona Bolsova had an impressive run to the round of sixteen at the French Open; her reward, a career high ranking that placed her in the top hundred for the first time in her career. Bolsova perhaps ran out of energy in her seventh match, which would have been the final if she was entered in the main draw without having to play in the qualifying rounds. Unfortunately for the young Spaniard, she did not get a wild card and had to play three matches in the qualifying round to get to the main draw. Hopefully she can continue to build on this new ranking and perhaps avoid the qualifying rounds in the future because I am curious to see how her game translates on the other surfaces.
