Golubev is now on a career-high ranking of 303. He moved up around 100 positions since the beginning of the season. It's not a lot if we compare it to other young prospects, but still it's a progress. He finished the season on a high note, reaching the final in the last 3 futures he played, and winning two of them.
Hope 2007 will be the year of his breakthrough at challenger level.
Golubev is in top-300 already and he was in SF in Sassuolo (ITA) last week defeating Aldi 6-1 6-4 and Luzzi (#114 in the world) 6-4 6-3.
He lost 6-7(6) 7-6(7) 4-6 to H. Ruiz-Cadenas.
I think this week he will have highest ranking, maybe in top-250. Let's wait few hours
