Little of, Usenko, and now goes all the intermediate second place in the rankings and has all chances, to become the owner of the Cup of Ukraine and do not give it a go beyond our country.

13620760_598088500369134_8539148085037237049_nThis is largely due to the fact, that the winner of the last two stages of the Englishwoman Milli Tomlinson this time in Kiev will not come. According to most of the Milli, recently became the winner of the club and the European Team Championship in the "Edgbaston», she was supposed to play at the IV stage of the Cup of Ukraine, but instead she had the opportunity to play in several tournaments in America, where she plans to travel. «I enjoyed it, Speaking at this event, – tales Tomlinson. – And very happy, that it was possible to get acquainted with the city as Kiev - is a beautiful city with a rich history.
