Hana Sromova Claims Her 40th ITF Title!

Today Hana won the $25K Toronto doubles event with Angelika Bachmann to win her 40th ITF title in singles and doubles.

With the win, she has won 8 ITF singles titles and 32 ITF doubles titles in her 9 year career.

Last week she passed 300 career wins in singles and this week she passed 300 career wins in doubles.

Quite amazing considering she retired in 2004 to become a coach, but then returned when she missed the tour. 2006 has been the best year of her career so far.

Well done Hana

Re: Hana Sromova Claims Her 40th ITF Title!

Her game is interesting.
It certainly had Justine off her game at the Australian Open this year.
Sromova certainly gave Justine a scare until she had the ankle injury.

Something needs to change.

I think I could play better than her, lol.

Her game is weird indeed, I think she reached her peak this year, but total credit to her for doing so!

She doesn't have a lot of power, she uses a lot of slice and mixes things up. I think it's good to have someone who doesn't just go out there and smack the ball as hard as they can and rally back and forth on the baseline.

She's beaten Jackson, Vinci, Osterloh, Nakamura, Pratt and Gagliardi this year.
