Big hit: Karola Bejenaru aims to climb rankings

Karola Bejenaru has made it into the main draw of a $10,000 tournament for the third week in a row after winning her final round qualifying match in the Wirral yesterday.

The 18-year-old Windsor player was seldom in trouble as she raced to an impressive 6-4 6-0 win over British opponent Megan Davies.

Bejenaru has landed a favourable first round draw as she will take on wildcard Jazzamay Drew of England today.

The 22-year-old from Worcester is ranked 867th in the world, 104 places higher than Bejenaru, but the east Belfast-based girl is confident.

"I have been playing pretty well over the past three weeks so hopefully I can win and get another ranking point by making it into the last 32," she said.

"The two girls I played in qualifying were inexperienced but I had to play well to beat them."

Bejenaru will take a break after her three-week stint on the Futures tour before heading to Paris next month to play professional club tennis for six weeks.
