PYW Palermo



With the completion of PYW Modena on Wednesday, PYW tennis returns to Italy to play on the beautiful island of Sicily, in this tournament we have reached the final qualifying round.


Ranking of the PYW contestants:

52. Marta Marrero ESP
86. Lubomira Kurhajcova SVK
97. Melinda Czink HUN

154. Anastasia Yakimova BLR
166. Martina Müller GER
176. Maret Ani EST

212. Elise Tamaëla NED
223. Emma Laine FIN

Eight out of the nine highest ranked PYW players advanced to the final qualifying round. All seeded players advanced. Not many surprises thus far in Palermo.

Belarussian top seed Anastasiya Yakimova is taking advantage of a very good draw. After beating Argentine Natalia Gussoni in the first round, she lost only two games to PYW newcomer Elisa Balsamo. Now she faces Martina Müller of Germany, who is ranked 12 places below Yakimova on the PYW ladder.

In an interesting match Lubomira Kurhajcova and Marta Marrero will meet for the first time. The two highest ranked participants in the final qualifying round, this match could cause some fireworks.

Melinda Czink is expected to qualify yet again, after having done so in Modena. The Hungarian is doing very well and seems to have a good fan base.

Estonia and Finland have high hopes for a player qualifying for the main draw. Emma Laine and Maret Ani will meet. Ani is the only one to have lost a set, but that does not mean anything for this match.

Go ahead and vote who you want to win into the main draw!
