Re: Palma Kiraly

It shouldn't have been that hard, but a win is a win, nonetheless.

Re: Palma Kiraly

SF: (2)Kiraly d. (7)Mitu 6-2 1-6 6-3

Palma into another $10K final.
she seems to have difficulties concentrating in second set, not a good sign. at least she knows how to turn it on in the third set. I am sure she will get mentally tougher as her career progresses.

Re: Palma Kiraly

Palma.

A good week, overall, but like Greg said, she needs to work on her concentration in second sets. That's going to prove to be a problem against players of a higher caliber. Also, I think it's time for her to progress from $10Ks and move on to $25,000 events and a few $50,000 as well. She's seventeen and only has a limited amount of experience playing against anyone in the top 300 so it's time to move up, I think.

Anyway, good job Palma, and good luck next week.

BTW, I found a few new pics and I'll post them later when I get a chance.

Re: Palma Kiraly

I agree. The fact that she gets to at least the SF of almost every $10K tournament she enters shows that she needs to move up to the next level. She is only going to get better by losing early in a couple of $25K tournaments and becoming adjusted to playing at a high level. Only then will she know what it takes to succeed at a higher level.

Is she playing this week? I didn't see her name on any lists.

I didn't see any either, so I think not. It's a relatively boring week in the challengers, apart from the $100K in Mexico and a couple of my favorites in the others.
