Wow, decent results by 18 year old Aryan Goveas in his last two tournaments with competitive displays against players in the 300-600 range with 2 wins and 2 losses. This is a significant improvement after a relatively average junior career although he didn't play the juniors in his final year of eligibility.

This week the Sood brothers are in Final. Kyra and her partner Emily Webley-Smith lost in SF whereas Kyra lost her R2 Singles.

At $15K Sharm El Sheik, Egypt

R1 Chandril SOOD (IND) / Lakshit SOOD (IND) [4] 6-3 3-6 [10-6] Oleksandr BIELINSKYI (UKR) / Denis YEVSEYEV (KAZ)
QF Chandril SOOD (IND) / Lakshit SOOD (IND) [4] 6-4 7-6(6) Marek GENGEL (CZE) / David POLJAK (CZE)
SF Chandril SOOD (IND) / Lakshit SOOD (IND) [4] 6-4 7-5 Benjamin BONZI (FRA) / Issam Haitham TAWEEL (EGY) [1]

They play 3rd seeds Colin VAN BEEM (NED) / Sem VERBEEK (NED) in the Final round. :goodluck:

R1 Kyra SHROFF (IND,679) 2-6 7-5 6-4 Anette MUNOZOVA (SWE,790)
R2 Yuliya HATOUKA (BLR) 6-1 6-1 Kyra SHROFF (IND,679)

17 yo. Yuliya has taken out the 5th and 2nd seeds to reach QF.

Doubles
R1
Kyra SHROFF (IND) / Emily WEBLEY-SMITH (GBR) [1] 6-0 6-1 Anamarija SPOLJARIC (CRO) / Anjana SURESH (CAN)
Kanika VAIDYA (IND) / Dan Ni WANG (CHN) 6-3 6-4 Barbara BONIC (SRB) / Jelena STOJANOVIC (AUS)

QF
Kyra SHROFF (IND) / Emily WEBLEY-SMITH (GBR) [1] 6-4 6-2 Elena BOGDAN (ROU) / Miriam Bianca BULGARU (ROU)
Veronika KAPSHAY (UKR) / Julia TERZIYSKA (BUL) [2] 6-4 3-6 [10-7] Kanika VAIDYA (IND) / Dan Ni WANG (CHN)

Semifinal
Pemra OZGEN (TUR) / Ana VRLJIC (CRO) [3] 7-6(1) 7-5 Kyra SHROFF (IND) / Emily WEBLEY-SMITH (GBR) [1]

Kanika lost in the second round of qualifying here to an unranked player. I am surprised by her lackluster performance despite showing promising results earlier in her career. All 4 of our players continue here next week. :goodluck:

I was wondering why the Sood twins weren't playing the India Futures. Smart move to play in Sharm el-Sheikh instead!

Sood brothers lost in the final of the Egypt futures.

This week Chandril Sood has made to Q3 in mens. In womens qualifying, Kanika Vaidya lost to an unranked French player in Q2. Not sure what has gone wrong with her game. She is much better player than this.

Kyra is there in the womens main draw.
