This week,

Q1
Ramya NATARAJAN (IND) [14] BYE
Yasmine WAGNER (GER) 6-3 6-3 Arthi MUNIYAN (IND)
Rishika SUNKARA (IND) [9] BYE

Q2
Ramya NATARAJAN (IND) [14] 6-2 6-2 Theiviya SELVARAJOO (MAS)
Rishika SUNKARA (IND) [9] 7-6(4) 6-4 Qianxin KONG (CHN)

Q3
Ellen ALLGURIN (SWE) 7-5 6-4 Ramya NATARAJAN (IND) [14]
Rishika SUNKARA (IND) [9] 6-2 6-2 Dan Ni WANG (CHN) [6]

So, Rishika qualifies beating a higher ranked player.

Main draw -

[R1] (Q) Rishika SUNKARA (IND,1111) vs. (Q) Ellen ALLGURIN (SWE,NR)

[R1] Natasha PALHA (IND,721) vs. (WC) Costanza PERA (ITA,NR)

The Swede Allugurin is a former top 400 player who must be coming back from injury. She beat Ramya who fared so well last week. So, it will be tough for Rishika.

This week a bigger Indian contingent is in Egypt. Dhruti, Kyra and Sowjanya are in main draw while few others are trying to go thru qualifying.

At $15K ITF Women

[Q1] Ramya NATARAJAN (IND,1210) d. Alexandra PISAREVA (UKR,1210) 60 61
[Q1] (3) Zeel DESAI (IND,710) bye
[Q1] Shweta Chandra RANA (IND,1124) l. Martina PRADOVA (CZE,NR) 67(3) 75 57
[Q1] Bhuvana KALVA (IND,NR) d. Melissa MORALES (GUA) 62 75

[Q2] Ramya NATARAJAN (IND,1210) d. (2) Emilie FRANCATI (DEN,693) 46 75 62
[Q2] (3) Zeel DESAI (IND,710) l. Arlinda RUSHITI (SUI,1179) 67(4) 62 26
[Q2] Bhuvana KALVA (IND,NR) d. (7) Anette MUNOZOVA (SWE,791) 64 46 63

Bad loss after a while for Zeel after series of good results on junior and pro tour. Hope she comes backs stronger next week. Good upset wins by Ramya and Bhuvana.

Next,

[Q3] Ramya NATARAJAN (IND,1210) vs. (15) Kirsten-Andrea WEEDON (GUA,986)

[Q3] Bhuvana KALVA (IND,NR) vs. (14) Dan Ni WANG (CHN,983)

What a win by Ramya over 693 ranked Emilie FRANCATI who appears to a late entry and hence had to qualify. I hope she makes into the main draw. Good show from Bhuvna as well.

Both Ramya and Bhuvana won the Q3 comfortably to make the main draw.

[Q3] Ramya NATARAJAN (IND,1210) d. (15) Kirsten-Andrea WEEDON (GUA,986) 61 62
[Q3] Bhuvana KALVA (IND,NR) d. (14) Dan Ni WANG (CHN,983) 63 62

That makes it 5 Indians in the main draw here. It could have been 6 if Zeel had not got upset.

[R1] (Q) Ramya NATARAJAN (IND,1210) vs. Valeria BHUNU (ZIM,610)
[R1] Kyra SHROFF (IND,684) vs. Lucrezia STEFANINI (ITA,683)
[R1] Sowjanya BAVISETTI (IND,727) vs. Emily WEBLEY-SMITH (GBR,589)
[R1] (Q) Bhuvana KALVA (IND,NR) vs. (5) Sandra SAMIR (EGY,440)
[R1] Dhruthi TATACHAR VENUGOPAL (IND,616) vs. (Q) Kajsa RINALDO PERSSON (SWE,790)

All 5 Indian girls lost in first round. :-(

[R1] (Q) Ramya NATARAJAN (IND,1210) l. Valeria BHUNU (ZIM,610) 36 75 26
[R1] Kyra SHROFF (IND,684) l. Lucrezia STEFANINI (ITA,683) 16 46
[R1] Sowjanya BAVISETTI (IND,727) l. Emily WEBLEY-SMITH (GBR,589) 16 26
[R1] (Q) Bhuvana KALVA (IND,NR) l. (5) Sandra SAMIR (EGY,440) 06 16
[R1] Dhruthi TATACHAR VENUGOPAL (IND,616) l. (Q) Kajsa RINALDO PERSSON (SWE,790) 46 16

Except Ramya none could even win a set which is disappointing although all except Dhruti were playing higher ranked players.

This week, at Sharm el Sheik, Shweta, Bhuvana and Ramya are playing the qualifiers. Ramya lost and Shweta won.

[QR!] Shweta Chandra RANA (IND) [8] d Martina PRADOVA (CZE) 6-2 6-1
[QR1] Junsai WANG (CHN) d Ramya NATARAJAN (IND) [10] 4-6 6-1 6-3
[QR1] Arlinda RUSHITI (SUI) [11] d Bhuvana KALVA (IND) 3-2 Retired :-(

In the final qualifying round, Shweta plays the Chinese girl who beat Ramya.

[QR2] Shweta Chandra RANA (IND) [8] vs Junsai WANG (CHN)

If she wins, she will join Dhruthi, Zeel, Kyra and Sowjanya in the main draw. I hope we don't have another one and done* week this time.

Zeel too lost in second round.

[R2] Zeel DESAI (IND,710) l. (6) Laura-Ioana ANDREI (ROU,436) 36 46


Zeel's performance in last couple of weeks has been underwhelming compared to her performances in last few months. Hope it is a temporary blip.
