Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Very nice news from Jasmina! I really think this girl deserves to be inside top200, hope she makes it one day. With this win her w/l record this year (including quali matches) goes up to 22-11, and if we look at just the last five events (four 100k's and one WTA) it's 11-4! This is her 12th tournament of the season and hopefully the first one larger than 25k where she makes a MD win. It's hard to believe Jasmina played qualies of a 10k this past January and lost in QR2 Her ranking should raise some 40 places on Monday, no matter what happens next, to ~580.

Good luck against Marta

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Congratulations!

This win must really mean a lot, after all her struggles she finally made a "real result". And with this win she'll earn about 60% the amount of points she had before this tournament (she had 37 and is guaranteed to get 24 now), so her ranking should go to around 495 (from current 620)

Next is probably Mayr (the 7th seed) who certainly seems too good for Jasmina at the moment, but it really doesen't matter, cause she already did more than many have expected. Well done girl

Mayr just lost so Tatjana Malek will be the next opponent.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Jasmina's career is a bit of a mystery to me. She's obviously hugely talented and has enough big wins to prove she's not a fluke and that she belongs (in 2008 she beat Duque-Marino in straight sets; in 2009 she demolished Larsson 62 60 ; so far this year she has beaten Beltrame, Birnerova, Tamaela, Poutchek and, this week alone, Botto, Chakhnashvili and Domachowska).

On the other hand, her career-high ranking is only 452 (and it's not like she's just starting out her career). It appears to be because in 2008 and 2009 she didn't play many events and also had several losses to more-or-less complete unknowns (Kvatsabaia, Eric, Melena).

She seems to be fixing that. She has been playing more often this year and has had only two what I would consider bad losses (Melena and Sekulic). Hopefully she is turning her career around. There are already too many Croatian women players with unpredictable careers!

Good luck, Jasmina!

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

she had terrible neck/back problems just as she was making the transition to the pros. it really hurt her development. hopefully that's behind her and she can now focus on her tennis

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

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

She lost in three (4:6, 6:4, 1:6) today, but it's still no disgrace. Malek is now around 150 and was close to #60 just a year ago. It was a very nice week for Jasmina. Her next event should be Sofia 100k next week (qualies), but who knows if she'll withdraw due to how much she played this week (although it's not THAT much if she's well prepared). But I also think she deserves a wild-card for Sofia after what she showed in Biella.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Jasmina is in the qualies draw for next week's Sofia $100K. In QR1 she plays a local WC, Ani Vangelova. Whoever wins will play the winner of (8)Ema Burgic (BIH) v Huliya Velieva (BUL).
