Tamara Kupkova with first win amongst women, it feels like never before

Tamara Kupkova, Bol, ITF, first WTA point

Member of EMPIRE Tennis Academy Tamara Kupkova managed not only to advance into the main draw of 10K USD clay event in Bol, Croatia but she was also successful in the first round. Her first win earned her first WTA point on the ITF circuit.

Tamara Kupkova fought her way through the qualies successfully in August in Arad, Romania and in Vinkovec, Croatia, but she always fell short in the main draw opening round. Her improving form was evident in Croatian Bol. After qualifying wins against Mulalic from Bosnia and Hercegovina and Phillips from Great Britain, Tamara Kupkova beat Czech Barbora Miklova on Wednesday. "It is great feeling, something new, compared to ITF  U18 tournaments. I deserved it after those hours practicing on courts and in the gym. When I won this match, I was feeling amazed, I was shivering. I never had this feeling, I had tears in my eyes," said Kupkova for www.empire-tennis-academy.com.

In Round 2, Tamara Kupkova lost against seventh seed Slovenian Natalija Sipek.
