Eva Paalma

With Eva a possible contender for next years Fed Cup, it's time we start paying Estonia's second best junior more attention.

Re: Eva Paalma

Does anyone know if she is planning on playing in Australia. Most of the Estonian Newspapers that feature tennis focus on Anett when it comes to Juniors. It might be beneficial if she practised doubles with Anett as there is a chance that they will play together at European Championships. Also, is Mia Nicole Eklund planning on changing her nationality because it could provide a little bit of a boost to Estonian tennis in the future.

But according to the ITF Website, it says the entry deadline is 3 january. Also, can't believe Danka and An Sophie are playing. An Sophie played nothing in 2011

For the usual tournaments. Slams always have earlier deadlines.

Re: Eva Paalma

I think a good goal for Eva is to be top 100 Juniors by the end of the year and finally win a title. All the up and coming juniors except for anett are mentally weak in that they can't win titles (tatjana at aotk twiga, erika at siauliau and eva at riga and tats). Given that this is probably her last year of juniors, maybe she should start to move onto some 10ks (perhaps 4-8). She should play in Antalya cause she's guaranteed some easy matches

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva Paalma (3) def. Sandra Ortevall (WC) 60 64
Next match against qualifier Emma Ek so potentially another easy match.

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva Paalma (3) def. Melanie Stokke 64 16 62
Cabaj Awad/Straume (2) def. Granstrom/Paalma (3) 60 64
Next for Eva is top seed in singles. A G4 Title would be a great start for 2012

Re: Eva Paalma

Anett is totally matching it with Kiki
Has held every service game and had 2 break points at 1-1
lets hope she can keep it up
Whether she is as mentally strong as anett is one thing but I hope she doesnt fade away from not taking break point
