ITF Women Circuit, Thailand- April/May 2017

Postby sameerph » Sun Apr 23, 2017 3:24 pm

3 weeks of ITF womens tournaments taking place in Thailand for next 3 weeks - 2 $15K tournaments in first 2 weeks and a $25K tournament in third week. 4 Indians - Karman, Kyra, Natasha and Prerna in the main draw. In gets tougher with second week as only Karman got into main draw and 4 others are in qualifying. In third week, it seems Ankita will also join the field for $25K challenger.

These are the first week's draws -

[R1] Natasha PALHA (IND,707) vs. HAN, Sung-Hee (KOR,638)

[R1] Prerna BHAMBRI (IND,799) vs. (WC) Julaluck SAE-EUNG (THA,NR)

[R1] (5) Karman Kaur THANDI (IND,539) vs. Sarah Beth GREY (GBR,727)

[R1] Kyra SHROFF (IND,708) vs. (Q) Tamachan MOMKOONTHOD (THA,1122)

I wish Ankita had spent an extra week in Thailand. She needs more wins in 2017 and a 15K tournament would be perfect tuning for a 25K tournament in the following week.

Natasha actually had 5 MP's at 6-3 5-4 in the 2nd set on her opponent's serve. On the contrary, she fought back from 2-5 down in the third set, but was unlucky not to get the win!

Can you post a link to the stream ? Karman does not seem to be doing well as of now.

I checked to see if I read the score correctly. Prerna lost six games in a row to lose the match. ;-(

Yes, that is a bad meltdown by Prerna.

Also bad loss for Karman. She had beaten the same player 6 months back in Thailand. Not sure what is wrong. But, her level seems to have dropped particularly in last 3-4 months.
