AO Q3: [19] Petra Martic def. [9] Nuria Llagostera Vives 6-2, 6-2

First qualifier! Nice, solid performances throughout qualifying.

Good to see Petra winning some matches again, has she been injured? She was top 100 not too long ago and had a couple of good wins early last year, but seems to have slipped down quite a bit. Thanks to anyone who can explain the situation.

No obvious reason. My guess is that she couldn't quite handle the pressure and limelight the first time she found herself in the top 100 and then lost some confidence in herself. Hopefully she's back on track now. She's still very young and has a bright future.

she's just been slumping...she had a few good matches early last year (vs. wickmayer and rezai). then she struggled quite a bit, really seemed to be confidence. i remember watching her lose to cabeza candella in marbella..it was really ugly. finally found some form at wimbledon, only to get injured and go back to sucking. three easy wins this week, hope this means she's playing well

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Ahh, I see. Yes, she turns 20 during the AO fortnight so time is definitely on her side. I was disappointed she had to beat Ajla in Q2 though.

Someone else might be better than me at shedding light on what happened to Petra last year. I do know that she did have a couple of injuries, one which led to her pulling out of Wimbledon in the 2nd round. However, while Petra might have had some physical difficulties last year none of them were serious enough to put her out of the game for an extended period. And indeed a lot of players on the tour manage despite carrying the effects of various injuries. I really couldn't guess how much Petra's results from last year were or were not effected by injuries. I only know the results she produced during the last nine months of the year were, in a word, disappointing.

But last year was last year. It is now looking like we have a refreshed Petra Martic playing now and her results throughout this qualifying campaign have been outstanding. Beating NLV 6-2 6-2 is tremendous. Let's not forget, Nuria had successfully qualified for Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open, so beating Nuria in Grand Slam qualifying requires a super effort, and to do it 6-2 6-2, wow, that is great.

Comisserations Nuria
