PYW - Budapest | Quarter Finals | Vote now!

PYW - Tippmix Budapest Grand Prix





Welcome to the historical Hungarian city of Budapest! Budapest plays host to a Tier IV event on red clay this week. We will soon leave the red dirt behind and head to the States, where the highest ranked players already are. There are still some players out there who would love to score some points before displaying their skills on the hard courts in the US summer heat.

PYW Ranking of the Main Draw Participants:


63. Anna Smashnova ISR
75. Mariana Diaz-Oliva ARG
88. Katarina Srebotnik SLO
92. Ludmila Cervanova SVK


115. Roberta Vinci ITA
126. Sanda Mamic CRO
162. Aniko Kapros HUN

204. Agnes Szavay HUN






A Hungarian champion in Budapest?

Ekaterina Bychkova had an upset for the taking in her match against #2 seed and PYW #88 Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia. The Russian played convincing tennis, but failed on match points, losing 5-7 6-3 6-7. Srebotnik was expected to have won more easily, but admitted to be relieved to have gone through to the quarter finals.

The Slovenian will be a bit of an underdog in her next match, against Mariana Diaz-Oliva of Argentina. The #6 seed is ranked higher on the PYW rankings and is in good shape. She struggled against Sweden's Hanna Nooni, but came through in straight sets.

Finnish lucky loser Emma Laine saw her surprising run in the main draw being ended by Italian hope Roberta Vinci, the #3 seed and without any significant results on the PYW Tour as of yet. Vinci will have her hopes up to go even further, especially considering her opponent is the Croatian Sanda Mamic, who is far from a renowned player in PYW. Mamic beat fluky Martina Sucha in three sets.

Hungarian hopes are carried by two wild card players, Aniko Kapros and Agnes Szavay. Szavay came down from a 4-6 first set loss to Antonella Serra Zanetti [5]; she crushed the Italian 6-0 6-1 in the next two sets. Kapros, who is shocking everyone this week, outplayed Michaela Pastikova in three sets.

It wasn't all good news for the local crowd though, because qualifier Melinda Czink could not live up to the expectations against the top seed and highest ranked remaining player, Anna Smashnova. Smashnova will now face Kapros, whereas Szavay meets Ludmila Cervanova of Slovakia, who was too strong for Emilie Loit in a very exciting encounter.

There is not really one favourite standing out. Almost anyone could go far here. How the players will fare, who will be victorious and who will be less fortunate, it is all in your hands. So start voting now for who you want to win these quarter final matches!

Quarter Finals:

Anna Smashnova ISR [1] v. Aniko Kapros HUN [WC]
Ludmila Cervanova SVK v. Agnes Szavay HUN [WC]
Sanda Mamic CRO v. Roberta Vinci ITA [3]
Mariana Diaz-Oliva ARG [6] v. Katarina Srebotnik SLO [2]

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
