But still great to see

So impressive for Sonay to go from 823 to 397 in such a short space of time. Massive confidence boost for her. Well done!

Just to give congrats, in passing, to Sonay for her first call-up to the Fed Cup team

It's been a stellar last few months for our girl....

Sonay won the title at the Notts 25k today,

Final: KARTAL, Sonay (GBR) (8) 371 def LAO, Danielle (USA) (2) 303 6-1 6-0

In addition, as Steven points out:

"Sonay Kartal has now won 20 of her last 21 singles matches on the ITF World Tour, and 36 out of 39 (92%) since returning to the tour last October and this week's title should see her rise about 50 places to around 320 on Monday week."

15 people picked Sonay in their top ten predictions, with an average ranking of 375. A further 6 picked her as their reserve, with an average of 352. She has way surpassed that, and it is only early May !
Onl three people predited her to be inside the top 300 by the end of the year.

IThe ranking is only going upwards as I'm sure she hasn't got anywhere near a full set of counters...
