Sixteen-Year-Old Wild-Card Christina Makarova Comes Close to Upset at Childhelp Desert Classic

 

(February 5, 2013) Rancho Mirage, California – Sixteen-year-old wild-card Christina Makarova fought her way into a third-set Tuesday on the first day of main draw play at the Childhelp Desert Classic before falling in three sets to Zuzana Zlochova of Slovakia, 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.
The event is a women’s $25,000 USTA Pro Circuit event being played at the Rancho Las Palmas Country Club.
Makarova of San Diego was down a set and 1-5 before storming back to even the match at one-set all. “I tried to stay positive and was able come back and even it up,” she said. “I could have used a little more of that positive thinking in the third set. I came close but wasn’t able to pull it off.”
Makarova was 1-1 against Zlochova, ranked No. 263 in the world, coming into Tuesday’s match. She said she will await word on Wednesday on whether she will receive a wild card into next week’s Ranch Santa Fe $25,000 event.
Four main draw singles and doubles matches were played on Tuesday. No. 4-seeded Junri Namigata of Japan beat Australia’s Salley Peers, 6-2, 6-0, and unseeded Lisa Whybourn of Great Britain upset No. 7-seeded Yi-Fan Xu of China, 6-2, 6-2.
Eight players won final-round qualifying matches on Tuesday and will be inserted into the main draw. They included Irvine’s Mayo Hibi, the No. 10 seed who represents Japan, top-seeded Tetyana Areryeva of Ukraine, No. 3-seeded American Ashley Weinhold, Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic, Slovakia’s Jana Juricova, No. 15-seeded Viktoriya Tomova from Bulgaria, No. 7 seeded Sachie Ishizu of Japan and No. 12-seeded Rebecca Marino from Canada.
