Re: Palma Kiraly

Is she playing this week? I didn't see her name on any lists.
Next week she will play $50k Palic (at least she is on the entry list in qualies)...

I think he meant ITF events for the week of August 4th, but yes, you're correct she is entered in Palic, which is an August 11th event. (It's her fourth priority, though.)

Qualies
24 KIRALY, Palma HUN 486 4

He said she should enter higher tournaments, that's why i wrote that...not because of his question about this week.

Oh, he was just agreeing with me when I said the same so I thought you were referring to her schedule.

My bad.

Re: Palma Kiraly

Thanks for the info.

I'm on vacation and haven't had time to check to see if she's playing this week. Anyone know?

Re: Palma Kiraly

To my knowledge, Palma is not playing any ITF events this week. She doesn't seem very committed to rising up the ranks. I know 17 is young, but a lot of players were in the top 20 by 17 and Palma doesn't even seem to want to play on a regular basis.

Re: Palma Kiraly

Palma is not entered in any events for this week (Sep. 1) and she withdrew from her only event (10K Budapest) that she was entered in for the week of Sep. 8. She officially withdrew last monday.

Did she get injured after winning her last title?

Re: Palma Kiraly

Signs of life! Palma is entered in $25K Lagos next week. Smart idea to head to Nigeria to play in the weaker ITF events. She can get both her ranking and her confidence up by winning a few rounds.

Best of luck Palma!

Re: Palma Kiraly

Our Palm Tree is back.

Like Greg said, she's playing the ITF $25K Lagos, this also being her first 25K event.

Main Draw

(1)Agnes Szatmari (ROU) v (q)Valeria Savinykh (RUS)
(q)Nevena Selakovic (SRB) v Rushmi Chakravarthi (IND)

(wc)Ronke Akingbade (NGR) v (q)Katarina Baranova (SVK)
Palma Kiraly (HUN) v (8)Surina De Beer (RSA)

(4)Montinee Tangphong (THA) v (wc)Christie Agugbom (NGR)
(q)Ester Masuri (ISR) v (LL)Lisa Marshall (RSA)

Bojana Jovanovski (SRB) v (q)Nicole Monteiro (NED)
Elena Chalova (RUS) v (7)Tamaryn Hendler(BEL)

(6)Julia Glushko ISR) v (q)Eden D'Oliveira (RSA)
Ankita Bhambri (IND) v (q)Alexandra Riley (USA)

(q)Rebeca Neves (BRA) v Vivienne Vierin (ITA)
Chen Astrogo (ISR) v (3)Isha Lakhani (IND)

(5)Lisa Sabino (ITA) v Sanaa Bhambri (IND)
(wc)Fatimah Abinu (NGR) v (wc)Blessing Samuel (NGR)

Keren Shlomo (ISR) v Prerana-Mythri Appineni (IND)
Karolina Nowak (GER) v (2)Zuzana Kucova (SVK)

I really have no idea what to expect because of her recent absence coming off of her most recent title, but the old Palma should be able to do some damage with this draw, provided she can somehow overcome Surina.

Best of luck, Palma.
