Yes, she does sometimes lose very badly to players ranked 100 or more slots above her. But she has also pulled off the occasional big win this year (e.g., over Sam Stosur). What seems clear is that clay and grass remain somewhat unfamiliar surfaces for her. But I like the fact that she's played a reasonable number of matches before going to Roehampton next week.

Ankita has got into main draw of WTA Baltic Open at Jurmala, Latvia on clay next week. It is probably for the first time she has made the WTA main draw directly.

Ankita is in GBR playing the $25K Woking Challenger this week. She is the #3 seed in Singles and #2 seed in Doubles partnering Naiktha Bains (who recently changed her nationality from AUS to GBR).

Ankita will face a qualifier in Round 1. :goodluck:
