Good win for Vaidehi.

I believe Shrivalli is joining her next week in S.Korea for the Changwon W35 (she is one out from the main draw and should be making it). I will actually be in Korea 2 weekends from now, and might be able to go see them play if they are in the double final or singles SF. I might also be able to catch them at the Daegu W35 qualies the day after, as I think both will be in the qualies on June 2nd there. Let us see.

At ITF W50 Goyang, S.Korea (Hard), Vaidehi qualified into the main draw

[Q2] (11) Vaidehi Chaudhari (IND,559) d. (5) Haruna Arakawa (JPN,445), 75 64.

She went up twice and got broken back both times, till 3-3 in the first set... Then at 5-5, Vaidehi got a third break and did not lose advantage. Same pattern in the second set as well, as she broke ahead twice at 0-0 and at 4-3 but Arakawa had it even at 4-4. After a third break, Vaidehi held on for dear life, as she had to serve three match points, and save two break points before finally closing it out after 3 deuces. 77 points by Vaidehi and 68 by Arakawa, which shows that it was close all through. Vaidehi played tougher when it mattered at the end of both sets. A really good win for Vaidehi.

A tremendous doubles match payed by Vaidehi and Yukina Saigo (JPN) just now at the Goyang W50. They upset the Tiwanese third seeds, 16 76(6) [10-8] ... They were facing 4 match point at 16 35 0-40 on their serve, but won 5 points and held on. They would go on to break the other pair and even serve for the set. They got broken, and they again faced a fifth match point in the set TB before winning three in a row and taking the TB at 8-6 ... The see-saw battle continued, as VC/YS were down 2-5 in the STB... They won 7 of the next 8 points to get a 9-7 match point. They then converted the second match point to take the STB and the match. Great fight in a 2 hour battle.

[R1] Vaidehi Chaudhary (IND)/ Yukina Saigo (JPN) d. (3) I-Hsuan Cho (TPE)/ Yi-Tsen Cho (TPE), 16 76(6) [10-8]

Vaidehi looked all at sea at first. Missed on 8 of her first 10 break points and dropped serve 4 or 5 times to be down 2-6 1-3... But she broke back Ya-Hsuan just on the nick of time there and really took control by the third set. Great job by her.

At ITF W50 Goyang, S.Korea (Hard),

[R2] (Q) Vaidehi Chaudhari (IND,559) l. (5) Aoi Ito (JPN,266), 16 62 16

Vaidehi fell behind, as she could not get a break in the first few chances she got, and Ito converted the first 3 BPs she got... In the second set, Vaidehi turned it around and converted the BPs and stayed tough on BPs against... This continued and the pattern was again reversed in the third. Basically streaky matches, like Vaidehi seems to always play. But she put up a good fight against a player much higher ranked than her. 86 points won by Ito and 73 by Vaidehi, so it was pretty close. She gets back to play doubles later today.

She replaced the 5 points she had there last year with 8 points this time (if I am not mistaken; did not check carefully!). Not all futile, but she needs to get on a streak in a main draw somewhere to make serious moves back up the rankings.

Yes, but she also had 5 points losing out from last week's W25 in Korea ( it seems they started a week earlier last time). So, 8 points replacing 10 points, so she will actually go down 10-20 spots in Monday's ranking update.

Also has 18 points to defend from W25 SF in Thailand next week, so will need to keep doing well in next 2 weeks in Korea to just remain in the rankings at current level. I think needs to play a lot more abroad, maybe it is a funding issue.

Re: [Tennis] Misc. Results for Indians abroad...

Post by jayakris »

At the W35 in Changwon, S.Korea (hard), 9th seeded Vaidehi Chaudhari (IND,542) is in the Q3 with two wins today - 61 60 over Juae Shin (KOR,NR) and 62 61 over Ji Hee Choi (KOR,NR)... She plays the Q3 on Tuesday against 6th seed Anastasia Gasanova (RUS,509).

Shrivalli Bhamidipaty (IND,427) is in the main draw at Changwon and plays the R1 Tuesday against Ya-Hsuan Lee (TPE,349). Vaidehi had upset her last week at Goyang in the R1... Hopefully Shrivalli can repeat it this week.

Shrivalli Bhamidipaty (IND,427) is in the main draw at Changwon and plays the R1 Tuesday against the 6th seed Ya-Hsuan Lee (TPE,349). Vaidehi had upset her last week at Goyang in the R1... Hopefully Shrivalli can repeat it this week.
Shrivalli also upset Ya-Hsuan, 76(7) 62 ... She was down a break at 4-5 in the first set and saved 3 set points before breaking back... Took it to a TB and held on. After that it was all Shrivalli. Her R16 opponent is TBD, as a qualifier from today needs to be placed in the draw and has to play the R1 tomorrow against a Korean wildcard. So it will be a lower ranked player in the R2 which I think will be on Wednesday.

Vaidehi just went down in the Q3 to Gasanova, 67(4) 61 [0-10]... Gasanova is a really strong player, who was ranked as high as #121 two years ago as a 23 year old. Something was still affecting her physically and she called the medical staff early in the first set too. Basically, Gasanova was upset at herself for most of the match, and gifted a lot of points to Vaidehi, who played well but simply did not have the game Gasanova has. Vaidehi is accurate enough in her shots and can hang in there against anybody in sparring matches, especially if the opponent makes mistakes... but when things need to be kicked into another gear, it is a different matter. Here, Gasanova seemed to give up on the second set, after a protracted fight for an hour and 27 minutes for a long first set. Once AG was down a break she quit on the second set (and even served a deliberate DF at set point), basically to conserve energy for the STB. She jumped all over Vaidehi in the STB, sort of like in the first set TB. Not a chance for Vaidehi against her power shots, and she made a couple of mistakes on her own too. It was quickly over.

By the way, the Changwon matches can be watched on ITF's live stream page.

Yes, Gasanova is a very good player, not surprised that Vaidehi lost to her although 0-10 scoreline in the STB is a bit shocking.

Should post Shrivalli's results in her own thread now ?

Let me make a Korea W50/W35/W35 series thread, as Shrivalli is there next week too, and these two playing doubles together as well. (Update: Started the thread; moved all the posts from Vaidehi's thread and Misc results thread)
