Pranjala Yadlapalli thread

Postby PKBasu » Sat Oct 13, 2012 7:38 pm

Starting a thread for the 13-year-old who is the new national under-18 champion. Definitely one to watch for in the future, hence this somewhat premature thread.

PKB, I wouldn't call this pre-mature. I think she has done enough to deserve a thread of her own and she's definitely a player to watch out for.... :D
Way to go PRANJALA! :goodluck:

I think this is the best performance by a 13 yr old indian girl, after sania mirza. Its too early to put her in the same bracket as sania, but you never know. Now if this girl does not get support from AITA OR sports ministry , that will be too bad.

Pranjala is being supported by GVK , the same group which supported Sania in her early days. So, she should have less worries on this front as long as she continues to progress.

This was the related news a few months back -

GVK group to sponsor Pranjala

Thats a fantastic news. Hatsoff to GVK. I wish Megha, Isha, Ankita and sana, had got this support when they were growing up. We need businessmen like GVK and politicians like Naidu ,only then we can produce champions.

In the first week of Pranjala lost to the third seed in the second round.

But, in the second week Pranjala has upset the third & sixth seeds to make it to the SF.

PHINMA International Juniors (Week 1) ( Grade 4) Philippines

[R1] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,655) d. Maia Bernadette BALCE (PHI,1760) 60 62
[R2] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,655) l. (3) Miki KOBAYASHI (JPN,334) 36 26

PHINMA International Juniors (Week 2) ( Grade 4) Philippines

[R1] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,655) d. Flyora SHIYANOVA (RUS,1092) 76(3) 63
[R2] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,655) d. (3) Maika Jae TANPOCO (PHI,356) 62 61
[QF] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,655) d. (6) Tamachan MOMKOONTHOD (THA,351) 36 60 76(2)

She now plays the Japanese player who upset the top seed in the QF.

[SF] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,655) v. Yukina SAIGO (JPN,508)

Pranjala lost in a close SF. But, good to see her venturing abroad & play at an early age . Hopefully, will have more success soon.

Very impressive stuff from 13-year-old Pranjala to have beaten world #351 and 356 in the second Grade 4 event in the Philippines. Keep it up, girl!!

Last week, it was the SF of a Grade-4 in the Philippines, this week she is already in a Grade-4 SF in Mumbai (CCI):

[R1] Pranjala Yadlapalli d. DARGUDE, Aastha (IND) 6-1 6-2
[R2] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND, 533) d. 7-DADI REDDY, Mahitha (IND, 536) 6-0 6-1
[QF] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND, 533) d. 3-REDDY, Snehadevi S (IND, 335) 6-3 7-6(3)

She will be seeded in her next Grade-4 tournament for sure...! In the QF, the 13-year-old who is the under-18 junior national champion beat the national under-16 champion (who is 15).

This week, Pranjala is also in the doubles SF.
