After being absent from the tour since last August Indire came back into action earlier this month:
+ In the $10K Caracas the first week of April, she lost in R1.
+ In the $10K Caracas the second week of April, she lost in R2.
+ In the $10K Caracas the third week of April, she has reached the QF. In R2 she beat the #5 seed, Adriana Perez (#628 but with a juniors CH ranking of #21 last year). In the QF she plays the #2 seed, Lena Litvak.

$10K Caracas, QF: Indire AKIKI (CRO) defeated Lena LITVAK (USA) (2) 6-3 6-3

In the SF, she plays the #3 seed, Castiblanco (#473). Good luck, Indire! It's nice to see you back in action

By the way, Indire is the only SFist who is not among the top four seeds (or any seed, for that matter).

Re: **Indire Akiki Chearing Thread**

I didn't see that coming at all! Just two weeks ago, in the same city and on the same surface, she lost in R1 to Frantova, ranked in the 1100s.

This time she beat the #3 seed, Castiblanco, in the SF 3 and 3 and lost only two games against the #2 seed.

Congratulations to Indire and continued success to her.

Congratulations Croats are rulling this week! Sure, they're rulling 10k's, but even that's better than nothin'...

Re: **Indire Akiki Chearing Thread**

Indire is playing qualies at the Indian Harbour Beach $50K. In QR1 she destroyed a player ranked in the 700s 61 60.

In QR2 she plays the #4 seed, Scholl (#395, also her CH). That will be a much sterner test. Good luck, Indire!

Re: **Indire Akiki Chearing Thread**

That's a very nice start! For someone of Indire's ranking, every win on this level is very valuable, so well done. Good luck in QR2!

Indire gets a nice bump up in the rankings this week from her win in Venezuela last week. She moves up from 718 to 652.

Indire lost badly, 61 62. Scholl's clearly at a different level

Re: **Indire Akiki Chearing Thread**

Indire is playing qualies at $50K Carson this weekend. It's an extremely weak draw for a $50K so Indire is the top seed. In QR1 she plays an unranked WC. If she wins she'll play the winner of two other unranked WCs. After that it could be the #8 seed, Zoe Gwen Scandalis (#918).

Good luck to Indire. Hope she qualifies and gets a soft opening MD match. This could be a good chance to pick up valuable points.
