Palma is definitely one to look out for. She's probably going to be really, really good. Not to mention she is very .

Re: Palma Kiraly

I am intrigued by her, I have never heard of her and looking at her results they don't really scream that she is going to be really, really good as you put it. Do you know anything else about her?

Very true, but it's just because she lacks experience playing on the pro tour but does do consistently well.

Palma never really played many junior events and in her last event, this Jan., qualified and won the event, winning 9 matches to do so.

She's one of the younger players in the top 600 and really has potential. I don't know if she'll be top 5 or anything, but she definitely has top 30 potential.

That's about all I could tell you, but you just have to trust me, Greg. (I hope that's the right name this time. )

Re: Palma Kiraly

You did get my name right this time, that's a plus.

I will definitely keep my eye on her. I know I just saw her name on a $10K entry list but I can't think of which one. Perhaps the one in Serbia this week? I'll have to check that...

Perhaps. Honestly, I hasven't seen which events she is entered in ATM.

BTW, she played Romi Tabakova a few weeks ago. I wish I could have seen that match.
