According to her Instagram profile, it looks like she got married last year in August and she is also a mother now. She was working as a commentator last year for Eurosport TV during USO and she also ran the Moscow marathon this year in May. She played a $25K challenger in Uzbekistan earlier this year. Would be great to see her forging a comeback in her career. :goodluck:

Vera Zvonareva made the final of both Wimbledon and the US Open in 2010, and was ranked #2 in the world at her peak. Maybe she is just playing for fun at age 33, otherwise she could surely have received a wildcard at Wimbledon. Beating her will be tough, I'm sure.

First of all Kanika will have to meet her in second round. Kanika made it in as a lucky loser and got the first round win.


[R1] (LL) Kanika VAIDYA (IND,1100) d. Angelina SHAKHRAYCHUK (UKR,NR) 46 64 61
[R1] (SE) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,1054) d. (Q) Arlinda RUSHITI (SUI,1046) 62 63
[R1] Sri Vaishnavi PEDDI REDDY (IND,1004) l. Verena HOFER (ITA,788) 61 26 57

Next,

[R2] (LL) Kanika VAIDYA (IND,1100) vs. Vera ZVONAREVA (RUS,NR)

[R2] (SE) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,1054) vs. (1) Jacqueline CABAJ AWAD (SWE,512)

Winners of those 2 matches will play each other in QF.

Zvonareva lost 06 64 46 to world #423 in Ferghana (R2), where she had to go through two rounds of qualifying (which I find bizarre in the WTA). Here, she has a wildcard, and won R1 against someone ranked in the 600s 62 63. She may be gradually finding form, but seems to lack endurance.

Pranjala started with dominating win over Ukrainian girl ... Rutuja also joined her in the second round with a convincing win over her Swiss opponent.

At $15K ITF Women's Tennis Tournament 2017, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

[R1] Rutuja BHOSALE (IND,820) bt Andrina PEER (SUI,1044) 75 60
[R1] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,1054) bt Oleksandra ANDRIEIEVA (UKR,923) 62 61

I like the way Pranjala is dominating her opponents. Except for that 5-7, 3-6 loss to the top seed (521) last week, she hasn't lost a set in her other 7 matches in the past 3 weeks. She is putting up a real strong show to get back to where she truly belongs in the rankings.

Thmping victory for Rituja as well.

Second round match-ups-

[R2] (Q) Kanika VAIDYA (IND,1100) vs. (Q) Arlinda RUSHITI (SUI,1146)

[R2] Rutuja BHOSALE (IND,820) vs. (3) Jacqueline CABAJ AWAD (SWE,512)

[R2] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,1054) vs. (5) Ana Bianca MIHAILA (ROM,596)

Kanika's opponent upset the top seed in first round. So, all 3 of them are having tough opponents in second round.

Head to head on ITF does not show any match between Mihaila and Pranjala. Mihaila had beaten Zeel in a close final last year in Egypt but she lost to Riya Bhatia in another final the week after that.
