Re: Eva Paalma

Eva lost in the final 7-6(3) 6-0
Another missed opportunity
She should have taken the sweep but her head gets in the way
She will never be good unless she gets on top of the choking

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva win the Estonian Tennis Championships
These were her victories:
R1: (3) Eva Paalma def. BYE
R2: (3) Eva Paalma def. Ehtel Metsik 6-2 6-1
QF: (3) Eva Paalma def. Julia Matojan 6-3 6-3
SF: (3) Eva Paalma def. Birgit Burk 7-6(6) 6-3
F: (3) Eva Paalma def. (6) Erika Hendsel 6-2 6-2

Some very unconvincing results given the nature of her draw but the Final was very nice
According to Eesti Tennise Liit Erika sometimes didn't put enough on the ball and Eva kept the errors down and played agressively to win

She is still alive in the Doubles as well as top seeds and Defending Champions with Tatjana Vorobjova. In the final they play unseeded pair Julia Matojan and Mia Nicole Eklund, but thay are not to be taken lightly (they beat the Second Seeded Ilves's 3 and 1 and 3rd Seeded Hendsel/Pihlak 2 and 0 )

Hopefully this will set the tone for her G1 next week in Germany

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva made the SF in doubles in Germany, beating the top seeds on the way
This will be great practice for the European Championships in Klosters next week, where IMO Estonia will be one of the orst performing teams with Pihlak, who has never played an event higher than G4, will be the second player

Anyway, she is also playing Savitaipale 10K in Finland where she is now in qualifying (second last DA). She was way down near the 60s at one stage, but many had the tournament as their second preference. It's a shame that the European Championships has been moved a week later (or Tampere/Savitaipale a week earlier) as she can't play Tampere as it clashes with European Championships. These tournaments would have been great to record maybe a QF as they are close to home, lucky for Estonians (Anett + Anett have had success here) and in general they are weak

Anyway, it is a shame she is born in December like Anett as she will probably never get to play a Junior GS

In an interview with her after her Estonian Championships win, she says that after her 1 more year of school she will try and take her tennis to the professional level. I hope she does

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva had to pull out of her Doubles with Lisanna Pihlak after winning the first set against the Hungarian 10th seeds and then walk-overed her singles vs Moratelli

She also had to pull out of Savitaipale, a tournament where given the players in Qualifying, she would have made MD definately(there is only 1 ranked player )

I hope she does better in her next tournaments and that she can recover from this injury

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva didn't manage to win any events at this years 18U Estonian Championships
In the singles she had confident early wins over Annemai Mutso in Round 2 (6-0 6-2) and Liisa Pajumets in the QFs (6-1 6-2). She then had to face Birgit Burk, who really should be playing ITFs by now as she has shown huge potential, as she snuck by 7-5 6-7(3) 6-3. She then had to face Tatjana in the final, and either due to tiredness, bad play or Tatjana finally getting some form back she managed to lose 7-5 6-4 This is the girl who gets destroyed by Erika every time they play and lost Eva 1 and 2 earlier this year in Tallinn, when Eva had to pull out of her next match

She decided not to play Doubles with Tatja, or even at all which was quite surprising

In the mixed she was top-seeded with Kenneth Raisma and they made the final before losing to Kerner and Vorobjova 6-4 3-6 10-6

Tatja sweeped all the events

She isn't on the entry list for any events besides the US Open Juniors which she sadly won't qualify for

Re: Eva Paalma

10,000$ Stockholm R1:
(Q)Eva Paalma (EST) d. (8)Laura Schäder (GER) 75 63

Laura is WTA #659, that is an awesome win for Eva! Next is Anastasiya Saitova (RUS)

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva dance: First WTA Point that wasn't over Tatja
She plays well on the Pro Circuit. I think she can make the QF

Re: Eva Paalma

Despite Eva losing Singles after being up 5*-3 30-0 in the Second (Final Score 6-3 7-6(6)), she and Maria beat the Top Seeds Melander/Milosavljevic 6-2 2-6 13-11 According to the Scorecard, they led 9-5, but they won anyway

One worrying fact though is that despite Eva serving 3 Aces vs Saitova, she also served 11 Doubles She must have Skyped Anett Anyway, it was probably because she was trying to hit them harder so they wouldn't be attacked but her First Serve was very effective, with 86% Points won on 1st Serve in the Second

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva is into the Doubles Final with Maria Mokh as they beat Allgurin/Peterson 3-6 6-4 14-12
They saved 3 MPs at 9-7 and 12-11 in the Tiebreak
She seems to be better than Anett
Anyway, if she wins she will have a title in just her 3 Doubles performace on the Pro Tour
I hope they play again next week
Eva is first match on Court 1, starting at 12:00 Stockholm Time where she will play Bashota/Ostapenko who I think are definitely beatable

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva won 6-2 6-0 from 2-2 in the First
Next she probably has Klackenburg who's up a set. I am confident she will win
Unfortunately she lost the Doubles Final yesterday although they were up 5*-4 in the 1st, even going up 15-0 it wasn't to be
They ended up losing 7-6(4) 6-1. Still a great week for her. I hope they play again
Here's the photo:

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva came back to win 5-6 6-2 6-0
That really is a shock but an excellent performance. First round though, she unfortunately has to play Maria Anyway, they are not playing Doubles this week but she is playing with Alina Silich which I also find disappointing but C'est la vie!!! They have a very easy R1 and a winnable R2 as well

Anyway, Eva and Erika are both not playing this evening but will play tomorrow

Re: Eva Paalma

Eva lost 46 63 6(1)7

Guess what, she was leading 5-2* and 5*-3 30-15 in third but as you can see, she could not finish the match. Held her serve to love to go up 6-5, was again 2 points from victory (30-30) but then only managed to get just 1 point after that

Typical Estonian...

Re: Eva Paalma

It muct have been hard to play her doubles partner
Such a shame as she had a real shot IMO at a QF here with Flood in the next round
She is an Estonian, except the opposite of Anett: Anett chokes in Games and Wins, Eva doesn't choke in Games but chokes Matches
But some good news is that she is into the SFs for Doubles with Silich after winning her 1st Round and then Doroshina/Saitova pulled out
They have either Melander/Milosavljevic or Allgurin/Peterson, both looking for revenge

Hopefully she can get that ranking some other time
We could have had 4 ranked players at the end of the week
