Boy, were you wrong today! :) :) ... She pulled off a terrific upset win. Hope she keeps the momentum going. If she is hitting her shots, she is a handful for anybody.
Wow. That's the worst reply one can get from a player. Not only she didn't lose, she won when she was down a set. This is amazing. I agree with Jay, if she plays her shots well, she will be a handful to any body.
That is the best reply one can get from a player. Not the worst. Anyone (Indian) I criticize, I hope they prove me totally wrong. :-)

Looks like it was a mistake. They have now added the R1 match for Wednesday night as the only doubles match today, in the order of play (I am pretty sure it wasn't there last night when I checked).

Sahaja vs Olivia is on at the moment but I’m not watching. I looked at the live scores and it is Sahaja leading 3-0 at the moment, serving for the 4th game in the first set. It’s been one long game with almost 28 points being played so far. Olivia is pretty good, so I will be surprised to see an upset win from Sahaja. I will look at the result later today. 🤞🏽

That game went on for 42 points but Sahaja finally held for 4-0 and than broke for 5-0 in first set.

From 5-0 to 5-3 now. Oliva was making tons of errors in early games but now has cut down and playing really well. Can Sahaja somehow sneak in a game to win the set at least ?

And she does. Breaks Olivia with great return on breakpoint to take the first set 6-3.

After losing the second set 4-6, Sahaja is up 4-1 in third set. Can she keep it up for couple more games ?

Tough loss for Sahaja after leading 4-1 in the final set and then to lose 6 out of the last 7 games. She has a very nice game but way too inconsistent with her services.

All over.

At ITF W100, Landisville, USA (Hard)

[R1] (Q) Sahaja Yamlapalli (IND,425) l. (6) Olivia Gadecki (AUS,140) 63 46 57

Just made a few more errors towards the end but still this must be one of the best matches Sahaja has played and she came so close to pulling off a big upset over a top 150 player.

Sahaja has the game. She just needs to play and play, and play more, to get more consistent. She has a high-risk style, and a lot of the shots are of lower accuracy for that reason. No way to get better than to play a lot. She is pretty clearly playing at a higher level than even a few months before.
