Pretty good to see that Prarthana is continuing to do her thing in doubles. I thought she was fading away sometime ago. Not so.

Prarthana and her partner in the SF beat the team that beat the second seeded team earlier. Now in the final, they are playing a team which beat the top seeded team. Final is going to be pretty tough as Jucupovic is a former top 40 doubles player.

Yes, she had virtually faded away after covid break, got outside top 400 last year. Now, after this run she will get back inside top 200 in doubles rankings.

Still a good run by Prarthana which will take her back inside top 200.

Have to give credit to Prarthana for her perseverance in making a good doubles career, traveling all alone as an Indian to all these events. I thought she would lose steam after the Covid break and not continue much longer. Doesn't seem so. She is still playing some pretty good doubles.

Psst, Piter from Poland pestered her into petering out her pre-conceived ideas of possessing an AK-47 in public ;-)
