With the US Open coming up at the end of August, Glushko’s eyes are set on qualifying once again for a Grand Slam, something that has eluded her since 2014.
Glushko advances to quarterfinals in Rio as Sela knocked out of tournament in Florida.

Pe’er, ranked No. 117 in the world, beat Canadian Francoise Abanda (202) 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 to set up a meeting on Friday with Anastasia Rodionova (190) of Australia.
Israel’s greatest tennis player ever believes Israel’s Fed Cup team under his guidance is capable of returning to World Group II.
