Pranjala is playing a couple of $25K Challengers in Spain.

At $25,000 Monzon, Spain (Outdoor - Hard)

[R1] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) vs. Yana SIZIKOVA (RUS,376)

Bit of a lucky draw for Pranjala being one of the last entrants to the main draw, facing a lowly ranked non-seed but knowing that she has not done anything better this year so far, the Russian might have the edge. Nevertheless, :goodluck:

Pranjala comes up with an excellent win over higher ranked player.

At $25K ITF Women,Monzon,Spain(Hard)

[R1] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) d. Yana SIZIKOVA (RUS,376) 61 47 76(6)

I followed live scores towards the end and Pranjala had 3 consecutive match points with Sizikova serving at 4-5,0-40. I thought she would fold in after missing those match points. But, stayed firm and held in the next game. It went to tie break where Prajnala saved match point on serve st 5-6 and then won the next 2 points to clinch the match.

Next,

[R2] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) vs. (Q) Anastasia KULIKOVA (RUS,670)

18 year old Kulikova upset second seeded 230th ranked American in the first round.

Very dominating win by Pranjala over the qualifier who had upset the second seed in the first round.

At $25K ITF Women, Monzon, Spain (Hard)

[R2] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) d. (Q) Anastasia KULIKOVA (RUS,670) 63 61

Now, she plays a local wild card who had upset the 8th seed in the first round.

[QF] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) vs. (WC) Eva GUERRERO ALVAREZ (ESP,598)

With 9 points here, Pranjala will be close to 420. Hope she wins at least 1 more match here which should take her to top 400.

Wow! That's a great win again. Kulikova has not just been good this week but has had decent wins in the past few months. Good job in beating a former WR #69 junior.

Now let's hope that she continues to do well against the Spaniard whose best junior rank stands at 18.

The Spanish youngster proved too strong for Pranjala.

At $25K ITF Women, Monzon, Spain (Hard)

[QF] Pranjala YADLAPALLI (IND,467) l. (WC) Eva GUERRERO ALVAREZ (ESP,598) 26 26

Her first serve % was 36% as opposed to 74% of her opponent which made the difference as 1st serve points won were 70% by both players.

Snehadevi also played here and lost in the Q2 to a lower ranked player.

With string of good performances in last few weeks, Pranjala has moved up inside top 400 for the first time at #394 this week and back to India #3 ahead of Rutuja who has fallen a bit to 403.

Next up for her is $25K in Hongkong next week it seems.
