Varvara is a really good player, Meyyis. She is coming back from an injury lay-off. The ranking is deceptive. She is ~200 rank career high and is only around 20 yrs I think

Pranjala started with a 3 set win this week.

At $15K ITF Women, Shymkent, KAZ (Outdoor Clay)

[R1] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) d. (WC) Yekaterina DMITRICHENKO (KAZ,NR) 06 62 62

That first set scoreline is quite strange against an unranked 16 year old. Pranjala still does not seem to be playing her usual self.

Next,

[R2] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) vs. Valeriya URZHUMOVA (RUS,783)

Pranjala's R1 opponent ( Yekaterina DMITRICHENKO) is a 16-year-old ranked 238 in the juniors. She is the type of player that Pranjala should be beating with ease. Something has gone very wrong with Pranjala's game in recent months.
Let us hope that the second and third set resurgence are the sign of a real turnaround in form.

Pranjala had a hard fought win in the second round.

At $15K ITF Women, Shymkent, KAZ (Clay)

[R2] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) d. Valeriya URZHUMOVA (RUS,783) 62 16 76(3)

Again a harder win than what she should have but at least she got a win the end.

I had read about her changing her training base from Hyderabad to Bangalore ( under CKG Bhupathi). I hope these are initial pangs of that change and she will get back to her last year's level soon.

Next,

[QF] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) vs. Vitalia STAMAT (MDA,865)

Maybe she was trying out something new. Sometimes players experiment with a new strategy/style in matches and then get back to their tested strengths if that doesn't work. This could have been something like that.

Pranjala thru to the SF with another 3 set win.


At $15K ITF Women, Shymkent, KAZ (Clay)


[QF] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) d. Vitalia STAMAT (MDA,865) 64 57 62

Next one will be tough one though.

[SF] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) vs. (7) Varvara FLINK (RUS,556)

As Vishnu said in few posts above Varvara has been ranked close to 200 not long ago and is coming back from an injury lay off. Last week she thrashed Pranjala 62 62 before going on to win the title. She did win a title the week before too in Antalya. So, Varvara is now on a 15 match winning streak in last 3 weeks.

Let us hope that Pranjala's revival is crowned with her avenging her defeat by Varvara Flink last week.

Total time spent on the court this week in Singles:
by Pranjala: 451 minutes
by Varvara: 175 minutes

If Pranjala beats the above statistics and manages to defeat Varvara this week, I'd be the first one to be surprised. :p

Hey, Pranjala is a lot more familiar with the courts!

Pranjala lost in straight sets against Varvara.

At $15K ITF Women, Shymkent, KAZ (Clay)

[SF] (2) Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) l. (7) Varvara FLINK (RUS,556) 06 57

After being bagled in the first set, Pranjala put up a better fight in the second set.

$25K in Karshi, Uzbekistan next week for her now.
