But 2R of 100k challenger is very good result.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Given this was her 12th match in about as many days and that it was against current #74 and former #22, it's not so bad. Now she'll have a well deserved rest for a few weeks (I don't see her on any lists for the next two) and then we'll see if/when she'll play until the end of the year.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Jasmina is on the qualies list for the $100K+ in China at the end of this month. She's such a $100K whore!!!

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

^^ LOL, but at least she's not selling herself cheaply

Jokes aside, I'm really surprised by this move, maybe she's counting on some QWC's for tour events?! That would be nice, but even just playing these big challengers will do her good. Sure, Asian tournaments usually aren't particularly strong compared to those in Europe, but she could still face some tougher opponents in later stages. It also looks like she could be seeded in qualies, which would sure help, cause no one wants her to waste any unnecessary energy.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

qualifying + a couple of md wins in 100k events really add up the points. she seems to be finding some more confidence in her game and she's playing pretty well with top200 players, even beating some of them. she's still young so let's see what she can do by RG next year

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

Jasmina makes a nice move up in the rankings this week, from 494 to 410. She was in the 600s about three weeks ago

Exactly. I'm hoping she can find her way to RG qualies if she can continue playing like these past few weeks.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Jasmina is on the list of 100+H challenger in Japan. Will she really travel to Asia to play a tournament? The withdrawal deadline passed yesterday.

Well she is scheduled to play in China later this week (qualies for next week), so I don't see why she wouldn't go that extra mile to Japan.

Looks like her plans are to stay in Asia for some time, probably so that she can "jump over" to Australia just in case she gets a shot at making the AO qualies in January - smart move!

Neither did I (was browsing her junior results today), and she would probably have even more nice wins if only she would have played more as a junior. I don't know why (injuries, lack of funds...?), but she played very few events as a junior. Those were mostly larger and more important ones, and she wasn't very active on that circuit, reaching only #63 in the rankings, but the talent is obvious.

Nice research, ma re--thanks!

I agree her talent is obvious (even in the seniors). Let's hope she lives up to her potential!

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Jasmina was ranked in the 960s as recently as three months ago. Since then, she has moved up to her current CH ranking of 410.

She is defending only 8 points (out of 85 total) until next June, so she can improve her ranking a lot between now and then. I wouldn't be surprised to see her in the 200s by the end of the year.

I hope you're right, but honestly I don't see her that far up by year end. In order to get to #250 she'd have to earn a little over 100 points (something like 110 I think), and reaching R2 from qualies on a 100K challenger, which is what she did in her last two tournaments, is 24 points. So she'd have to repeat that probably 5 more times by the end of the season only to get into 250. Of course, things change if she goes deeper into these events, but given her entry ranking for events to come she can't rely on direct acceptances into MD's - unless some tournament directors come to their senses and realize she's too good for these quelies.

Anyway, hope she exceeds our expectations

P. S. I wonder why the quali draw for this Ningbo 100k+H still hasn't come out anywhere...btw, looks like Jasmina will miss out on being seeded in qualies.
