Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Unfortunately she lost (1:6, 6:7), but it's not such a terrible thing to lose to a top150 player and even play one tight set against her. In fact, she almost got the same number of games against Han as Dokic, and was actually closer (in terms of result) to winning a set than Jelena

Not a bad week Jasmina (except for that hickup in qualies...), not bad at all

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Too bad she lost but it would have been a shock if she had won. She'll move up ~40 spots in the rankings this week. That'll bring her into the 300s for the first time.

It's amazing progress, considering she was ranked in the 900s just three months ago.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

No, she's not in either the qualies or the main draw of Beijing, and she also withdrew from Torhout 100k+H which starts on October 11th. We still don't know if there's a chance for her to play Osaka or Linz which also start on the 11th. Last year, the last direct acceptance into qualies of Osaka was ranked 402 so she might really have a chance if something like that happens again. Linz was much stronger in '09, with the last direct acceptance into qualies ranked at 286.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

A nice jump in the singles rankings this week for Jasmina, from #412 to #372. She's now 8th best among Croatian women, with Pandzic being the next in front at 325.

P. S. About a week and a half ago someone posted in the Osaka thread that the q-list goes down to #366. Hard to believe Jasmina will make it in based on ranking, but I wouldn't mind getting surprised with a wildcard

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

So what happened to Jasmina? She had three amazing tournaments, cutting her ranking from the 650s to the 370s, but then withdrew from Tokyo ITF. Anyone know why and when she'll play again?

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

No news at all. Nothing in the media, and we can only see that she withdrew from both, next week's Torhout 100k+H, as well as from Saint Raphael 50k the week after that. She's not in the WTA qualies either, Linz and Osaka are both out.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

She should be back in Europe, cause her name came up on the list for Poitiers 100k, which starts on October 25th. Currently she's 15th alt, but with almost 2 weeks to go it's safe to assume she has a shot at getting in.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

Things not looking great for Poitiers, qualies start in like 3 or 4 days and Jasmina is still only 9th on the alt's list. Just one girl ahead of her doesen't have this as Priority 1, which doesen't help either.

But the good thing (sort of) is, that she's also on the lists for both 50k+H ITF's that start on the week of November 1st, and it looks like she could get into those.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

This one girl is Ksenia Pervak whose "Priority 1" was Istanbul and she withdrew from there.
Still there are 2 special exempts and 4 wild cards so 6 girls from quallies might get to MD.

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

It looks like a lot of players withdrew from Poitiers in the last few days because Jasmina is the #6 seed in qualies and there's more than a dozen byes. Jasmina has a bye in QR1 and in QR2 she plays Yulia Putintseva, who also got a bye. Putintseva is 15 yo and has a CH junior ranking of #9.

Good luck, Jasmina!

Re: **Jasmina Tinjic Chearing Thread**

This might be a tricky match for Jasmina. She's in a role of a favorite, so all pressure is on her. Experience on tour, surface and physical strenght are all probably on Jasmina's side, but this girl seems to be really something. At just 15 she's already competing on tour, this is her 4th event, on the first one (a 10k) she qualified and got to the semis, on the second she hasn't made it that far (only R2 on a 10k), but she took a set from Cetkovska, and then she got a MD WC to a WTA tournament in Luxembourg She lost in R1 there to Kerber, but judging by some of the matches she definately is talented. Let's hope she won't prove to be too much for Jasmina
