Disappointing result for Prarthana as she with her Japanese partner lost against wild-card pair after winning the first set ... Big missed opportunity.

At $250K WTA Tashkent Open, Uzbekistan

[R1] Nao HIBINO (JPN)/ Prarthana THOMBARE (IND) l (WC) Polina MERENKOVA (UZB)/ Dayana YASTREMSKA (UKR) 64 36 8-10

A long and hard path for Prarthana to become a regular doubles specialist at WTA level. Looks like she has the patience to endure the pain. Wish to see her there soon. Good luck, Prarthana!

Yes, she lost in a close final this week though.

At $25K ITF Women, Perth, Australia

[F] (1) Irina Maria BARA (ROU) / Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND) l. (2) Junri NAMIGATA (JPN) / Riko SAWAYANAGI (JPN) 67(5) 64 9-11

There are a couple more challengers in Australia for next couple of weeks. I don't know why Ankita did not go there.

That's a very good win. For a place in the semi-final, they will either play a pair of wildcards, or a pair of qualifiers.

Prarthana and her partner have reached a challenger final in Italy.

At $25K ITF Women, Santa Margherita Di Pula, Italy

[R1] Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND) / Eva WACANNO (NED) [3] 6-2 6-3 Valeria SOLOVYEVA (RUS) / Melanie STOKKE (NOR)
[QF] Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND) / Eva WACANNO (NED) [3] 3-6 6-4 [10-7] Ekaterine GORGODZE (GEO) / Kamila KERIMBAYEVA (KAZ)
[SF] Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND) / Eva WACANNO (NED) [3] 6-3 6-1 Irina Maria BARA (ROU) / Basak ERAYDIN (TUR) [2]

Next,

[F] (3) Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND) / Eva WACANNO (NED) vs. Lina GJORCHESKA (MKD) / Bernarda PERA (USA)

The American pair has upset the top seeds and the fourth seeds while Prarthana and her partner have upset the second seeds. So, it should be a well contested final.

They lost tamely in the final.

[F] (3) Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND) / Eva WACANNO (NED) l.. Lina GJORCHESKA (MKD) / Bernarda PERA (USA) 26 36

There are 25k tournaments in Italy in next 3 weeks. So, I think Prarthana will continue playing there.

Prarthana and her partner had big upset win in $100K in China.

At $100K(+H) ITF Women, Anning, China (Clay)

[R1] Prarthana G. THOMBARE (IND,192) / Fang Ying XUN (CHN,255) d. Eri HOZUMI (JPN,34) / Miyu KATO (JPN,38) 26 63 14-12

Hozumi and Kato were semi finalist at Australian open and beat Sania and Strykova on the way. So, this is a big scalp for Prarthna.

wow...wow...wow!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

For her perseverance, Prarthana badly needed this kind of a break. She truly deserves one! It will be nice if she and Xun can use this huge upset as a pedestal to go deeper in this Challenger.

Prarthana is in the semis with her Chinese partner Fang Ying Xun after beating their Chinese opponents in the match tie-break ... Some weird total time for this match; 3 hours 21 minutes and in that the first set was 2 hours 26 minutes long ... In the semis, they r facing another Chinese pairing of Xu Liu Sun and Yan Wang.
