Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

While we weren't looking, Ajla has been making some waves. She's playing in this week's $10K in Mexico City and has had some excellent results:

R1: def. Segarelli (unranked) 63 63
R2: def. Hermoso (#774; #8 seed) 60 63
QF: def. Munoz-Gallegos (#444; career-high #328; #3 seed) 63 62

In the SF, she'll have her toughest test yet, against Craciun (#404; career-high #246; #2 seed). Regardless, she'll be ranked for the first time after this tournament. If she loses in the SF, she'll be ~#1000; if she wins, she'll be ~#970.

It looks like playing in Mexico was a good idea as the draw is very week (no qualies, many unranked players in the MD, only five players in the top 500). There's another $10K in Mexico City next week and Ajla is again on the entry list.

Best of luck to Ajla. Fans of Croatian women's tennis need something to celebrate!
