Week 18 - ITF W15 - Ramat Hasharon, Israel (hard)


L32: (4) Alicia Barnett WR 595 (CH 453 in May 2019) vs Qualifier

L32: Emily Appleton WR 750 (CH 501in October 2018) vs Shavit Kimchi (ISR) WR 802 (CH), age 19, JCH 37

These are in the same quarter of the draw.

Hopefully Emily brings that seemingly good domestic form to her first ITF event of the year.

This Shavit seems to have had some half decent wins recently, including Amanda C less than a month ago, but maybe the surface will favour Emily - the bulk of the Israeli's matches seem to have been on clay. But yes, very interested to see how she gets on after so many UKPL tour matches (and wins). At least she does have the back up of next week (hopefully along with Emma) if it doesn't go too well.

Absolutely. This in interesting.

When Josh Paris went to the ITFs straight after having won the first ProLeague thingy, he had a really disappointing run.

It'd be great if Emily could transfer those home wins into points, it's what it's all about, after all.

Bet365 early odds: Emily 3/10, opponent 12/5 (1.30 vs 3.40), but I think a few on here have benefitted in the past from generous pricing in Emily's odds, albeit before her upturn in form/confidence.

Thankfully they have put it on Wed, not tomorrow, so although no rest days if she were to have a deep run, the way she was bandaged towards the end of last week, that extra day recovery could be useful.

Emily levels up, 6-7(2) 6-4. She'll not be used to these normal third sets, ha.

I wonder if it's particularly windy out there. Lissey's opponent had 15 in their match.

 Well if it is, it's not affected her opponent who has 3

Some people cope with it, some don't.
Emily brought back down to ground after her UKPro tour successes with a three set loss.
