Ksenia Palkina topples Rushmi
Kamesh Srinivasan

NEW DELHI: Ksenia Palkina of Kyrgyzstan rode on her good form to overwhelm top-seeded Rushmi Chakravarthi 6-1, 6-2 in the first round of the $10,000 ITF women's tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex here on Tuesday.

Serving strongly and stroking with conviction on either flank, the 16-year-old Palkina recovered quickly from dropping serve in the first game to gain a stranglehold over the proceedings. Palkina had won the ITF juniors title last week in Kolkata and had lost the final the previous week to Sanaa Bhambri here.

Palkina was at home with her smart game and cruised through in 45 minutes.

In contrast, the 28-year-old Rushmi who had won the National grass court title last month has not had any competitive stint in recent weeks and was understandably rusty.

She did not have confidence in her game and managed to hold serve only in the seventh game of the second set, that made it easier for her opponent ranked 460 places below her at 836.

Brisk start


In comparison, the 388th ranked second seed Ankita Bhambri had a brisk start to her fresh campaign as she blanked qualifier Penpron Chantawannop of Thailand in 39 minutes. Ankita had won a similar tournament last time in Pune and would be keen to add to her WTA points collection.

The other leading Indian players, Isha Lakhani, Megha Vakharia and Paarul Goswami, who all figure in the bottom half, were equally impressive in making the second round.

Megha beats back Caciotti's challenge
Kamesh Srinivasan

Ankita overcomes Archana

NEW DELHI: Megha Vakharia settled into a good rhythm with a 7-5, 6-2 victory over Martina Caciotti of Italy in the pre-quarterfinals of the $10,000 ITF women's tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex here on Wednesday.

Megha, who increased the pace and punch of her shots as the match progressed, handled the challenge from the hard working Italian with remarkable composure.

Hampered considerably by a string of injuries in her fledgling career so far, the 21-year-old sported a resolve to capitalise on the current state of good health and showed no signs of alarm even when she was down 3-5 in the first set.

In fact, Megha saved a setpoint in the tenth game, and reeled of seven games on the trot with her silken smooth strokes to demoralise her opponent.

The Mumbai lass will be up against the second-seeded Ankita Bhambri, a member of the Indian Fed Cup team, who struggled initially before shutting out the seasoned Archana Venkataraman in straight sets.

Isha advances


Third-seeded Isha Lakhani was the only other Indian to make the singles quarterfinals and will be challenged by qualifier Nadine Fahoum of Israel who recovered from losing the first set to beat eighth-seeded Paarul Goswami. The Delhi girl, Paarul was at her best when she bounced back from 0-3 in the first set to take it 6-3, but lost her way thereafter.

Sonal Phadke and Liza Pereira gave a good account of themselves but slid to three-set defeats at the hands of Nicole Clerico of Italy and Nudnida Luangnam of Thailand respectively.

Liza raced away with the first set and saved six setpoints before losing momentum in the tenth game of the second set. In the decider, she struggled with an injured knee and managed to win a mere three points including one on her opponent's double fault.

It was almost a similar story for Sonal except that she fought pretty well in the decider in which her opponent committed fewer mistakes.

Yet, none fought as hard as the stocky Czarina Mae Arevalo of Philippines did as she saved three matchpoints to beat Julia Glushko of Israel 5-7, 7-6(2), 7-6(1).


well done Czarina on saving the MPs :)

Ksenia won - its confirmed

Ankita breezes past Megha
Kamesh Srinivasan

NEW DELHI: It was expected to be an exciting contest but the second-seeded Ankita Bhambri made it a mismatch as she outplayed Megha Vakharia 6-2, 6-1 in the quarterfinals of the $10,000 ITF women's tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex here on Thursday.

Starting on a safe note, the Delhi girl was content to hit down the middle rather than go for the lines. But she stepped up the pace and found the angles to trouble the Mumbai left-hander.

Playing well only in patches, the 21-year-old Megha struggled to hold serve and Ankita won nine games on the trot from 2-2 in the first set. Megha eventually held serve in the sixth game of the second set, but Ankita had found her groove by then.

Ankita will take on another left-hander from Mumbai, the national hard court champion, Isha Lakhani.

The gutsy Isha recovered from being 1-4 and 3-5 down in the first set to overwhelm qualifier Nadine Fahoum of Israel in straight sets.

Hitting stinging shots on either flank and moving about the court briskly for some deft placements as well, Isha called the shots even when she was down 0-40 at 6-5 in the first set in exasperating the Israeli lass.

Nadine, who has been competing in the ITF junior circuit in India for the last three weeks, was no match for Isha eventually and was easily put in her place in the second set when the Mumbai lass hardly put a foot wrong.

Palkina through

In the other quarterfinals, Ksenia Palkina downed her doubles partner Nicole Clerico for the loss of six games, while Czarina Mae Arevalo of Philippines continued to emphasise her sound strokes and a stout heart with another come back from behind victory in three sets over the fourth-seeded Nudnida Luangnam of Thailand.

Czarina converted the fourth breakpoint in the seventh game of the decider and then out-hit her Thai rival with poise and flourish in the duel that crossed the two-hour mark.

Article on the semis

Ankita meets Palkina in final
Kamesh Srinivasan

NEW DELHI: Ankita Bhambri raced past National hardcourt champion Isha Lakhani 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals of the ITF women's tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex here on Friday.

Though she dropped serve thrice, there was no real threat for the second-seeded Ankita as she played with conviction and increasingly well as the match progressed.

While Ankita kept up a steady game, Isha tried to wrest the initiative with an attacking style of play but lacked the rhythm to capitalise on her game plan. A string of six doublefaults including three on the trot in one of the early games did not help the confidence of Isha. Though she has not been playing as well as she can, Ankita has not dropped a set so far in the tournament.

Ankita takes on Ksenia Palkina of Kyrgyzstan who has been equally impressive in not dropping a set on way to the final.

In fact, Palkina has been improving with every outing ever since she beat the top-seeded Rushmi Chakravarthi in the first round. She serving and stroked well against Czarina Mae Arevalo to be home in straight sets in the other semifinals.


Walk-over

The doubles final was not played as the top-seeded Rushmi Chakravarthi and Ankita Bhambri had to give a walk-over as the former was advised rest following injuries suffered while she tripped on court during her doubles semifinals the previous day. With the medical advise of at least a week's rest, Rushmi was forced to withdraw from the next tournament in Muzaffar Nagar as well.

The champion pair of Palkina and Nicole Clerico of Italy shared a prize purse of $637 and added six WTA points each to their collection. Ankita and Rushmi shared $343 and pocketed four WTA points each.

CHAMPION STUFF: Ankita Bhambri made up for the disappointment on Friday with a straight-set triumph in the singles final.


NEW DELHI: The second-seeded Ankita Bhambri beat Ksenia Palkina of Kyrgyzstan 6-4, 6-3 in a match lasting an hour-and-a-half to win the title in the ITF women's tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex here on Saturday.

Not playing at her best, Ankita, however, picked her third singles title at this level and the fifth overall in the ITF women's circuit.

The contest witnessed ten breaks of serve, perhaps a typical scenario in the women's game. The 19-year-old Ankita started on the right note, holding serve at love, but thereafter she faced breakpoints in eight of her next nine service games.

What was heartening was the fact that Ankita was able to serve big at the crunch and she held on gamely to the advantage despite not being able to stroke fluently or flawless. She had her first matchpoint in the eighth game but the 16-year-old Palkina came up with a rare big serve to extend the battle by another game.

Eventually, Ankita was able to convert her fourth matchpoint as Palkina put her backhand wide.

Palkina lacked the energy, both physical and mental, to make a match of it. It was her third singles final on the trot following the two in the ITF junior circuit and she lacked the bounce in her feet.

The winner collected $1568 and six WTA points while the runner-up had to be content with $960 and four WTA points.
