She lost to Craybas, though. Still, an amazing week for Akgul.

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Akgul is in Dubai this week, playing qualifying.

She won her first qualifying match over Zuzana Ondraskova 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-0.

She has either Meng Yuan or Shengnan Sun in the next round due to the withdraw of the eleven seed Shuai Peng.

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Amanmuradova def. (14) Chan 6-2 6-2.

That is three times in the past month or so that she has beaten Yung-Jan. She now plays Ekaterina Makarova for a spot in the MD. Go Akgul!

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Akgul did not qualify for Dubai, losing 6-2 6-7 6-2 to Makarova.

She is in Bangalore MD this week against Shvedova first round. Here is her section...

(4) Patty SCHNYDER vs. BYE
Aiko NAKAMURA vs. Tamarine TANASUGARN
Akgul AMANMURADOVA vs. Yaroslava SHVEDOVA
(5) Agnes SZAVAY vs. (WC) Shikha UBEROI

Best of luck Akgul. Hope she can win her first round and then see how it goes against Szavay.

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

It's strange to see Akgul in a Tour main draw without having had to play qualies. Take advantage, Akgul!

I'm sure Yung-Jan will beat Akgul one of these days.

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Bangalore 2R: Akgul Amanmuradova d. [5] Agnes Szavay 4-6 7-6(4), 6-4



Great fighting Akgul! I'll try and post a report one of my friends who followed the SB told me, she really had to fight hard but she got the biggest win of her life!

I won't be able to cheer for her if the QF is against Patty, but it has been an awesome week for her!
