Vitalia Diatchenko, 20, entered the Hiberno International fold in order to give her career the boost it deserved. Having reached the 2nd round of the 2009 French Open singles and rocketing up the pro ranks, a combination of lack of structure and guidance saw her drop to 168. Hiberno took the decision to base Vitalia in Ireland under the guidance of Garry Cahill and his crew, which immediately paid dividends with Vitalia's run to the final qualifying round of the 2011 French Open. Now it is paying off even further.
Her initial taste of life in Ireland saw Vitalia fall in love with hurling as she attended the Dublin-Kilkenny National League Final. With the guidance given by Garry Cahill and his staff at the Tennis Ireland BNP-Paribas National Academy in DCU, Dublin, Vitalia began to find her feet. Using the clay courts on offer at Fitzwilliam LTC she was ready for an assault on the French Open qualifiers. Beating 12th seed Eva Birnerova set up a rematch with former conqueror Pliskova from the Czech Republic, Vita progressed to a final round showdown with the experienced Spaniard Soler-Espinosa who squeaked through 6-4, 6-3. The Spaniard went on to push eventual French wil Na Li to 3 sets.
Returning to Ireland before Wimbledon Vitalia prepared at DCU, Glasnevin LTC and Elm Park to make a determined try to make the main draw. The day before she left she signed a 13 month deal with Sportsrisq Capital to ensure that her coaching and training would be to the forefront. The investment paid it's first dividends as Vitalia beat experienced Ukranian-Israeli Glushko, Italian 7th-seed Camerin and Candaian 23rd-seed Dubois to take her place in the main draw against 25th-seed Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia. The story continues.
