And Karman completes an excellent upset win.

At $25K ITF Women's Tournament 2018, Nanning, China

[QF] Karman Kaur Thandi (IND,215) d. (3) Katie Swan (GBR,163) 63 76(4)

She is getting closer to top 200 again. Win in next match will get her back to top 200. Going to be a tough one though.

[SF] Karman Kaur Thandi (IND,215) vs. (2) Julia Glushko (ISR,123)

28 year old Glushko was ranked in top 80 and qualified and won a round at US open this year.

She does it.
6-3,6-3.
One of the biggest wins of her career.
Second 25K finals this years.

Had a match point while serving for the match at 5-2.
Lost her serve but made a brilliant comeback to take four straight points off Glusko's serve and win the match.
Congratz kkt :clap:

Back in the top 200 with this, and also back at India #1 ahead of Ankita.

Most of her points are in the second half of this season, so a full year at this level will bring her comfortably inside the top 150.

Yes,30 points from this week. After deducting 5 points as her least of top 16 points, it makes a net addition of 25 points which puts her at 296 points ahead of Ankita who is at 291.

But, these points will be updated next week, that is on November 5th. So, WTA Mumbai points will also be added in by that. So, how these 2 do there will also get factored as also if Karman wins the final here.

It is getting to be a close race again for India #1. I recall the same competition at the time of WTA Mumbai last year. Great to see it happening again this time at a higher top 200 level. :D

Also this is a career best for Karman in terms of ranking of her opponent. :clap:

And she meets the local fourth seed in the final.

At $25K ITF Women's Tournament 2018, Nanning, China

[F] Karman Kaur Thandi (IND,215) vs. (4) Xinyu Han (CHN,167)

Karman has upset second, third and fifth seeds already this week. Hope fourth seed is next on the way.

She lost in the third set. :-(

At $25K ITF Women's Tournament 2018, Nanning, China

[F] Karman Kaur Thandi (IND,215) l. (4) Xinyu Han (CHN,167) 46 62 46

Karman could not pull off her fourth top 200 win. Fought hard, won exactly the same number of points as her opponent (99) but could not win the key ones in first and third set.

Anyway, great week for her which will bring her back to top 200 in November 5 ranking.

Anyways a very good week by Karman,
Very close final, could have gone either way.

The serve is still little unrealable though 8 double fault
