Re: Macedonian tennis!

Lina lost 6-4 4-6 2-6. Too bad she folded after winning the 1st set. Still congrats on making it to the final!

Yeah, I hope too that Lina will somehow manage to step to 25Ks, and also that some new talents will emerge soon.

Re: Macedonian tennis!

There was also this Serbian player, Saska Gavrilovska, born in January 1995 - looking at her name she obviously has Macedonian origins. She reached a CHR of 49 in juniors and 559 in the pros (reached on June 3, 2012 - so at 17 yo), so she looked somewhat promising. But she hasn't played a single tournament since September 2012. A shame. I looked up and it looks like she's studying in college in Texas. As long as she's happy.

Re: Macedonian tennis!

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: Macedonian tennis!

Lina reaches a new CHR of 420 this week thanks to her Prokuplje final (up 21 spots).



Yeah, really hope Saska gives a try at turning pro like a few players have done after college (like Gibbs for instance, rather successfully).

Gjorcheska has improved a lot. She hasn't shown that she can do much above the 10K level but she's a solid #1 for a country like FYROM. Stoilkovska isn't really good. She still can't get a WTA ranking despite traveling to Asia for weak 10Ks.

There was a player Josifoska who was top 500 WTA (I think?) and then she went to college in the US. She should have graduated by now, I'm surprised she hasn't returned to the tour. They could have a solid Group 2 Fed Cup team with Josifoska and Gjorcheska.

Anyways the good news for FYROM is that they aren't really great in other sports so it's likely that Gjorcheska could get a WC for the Rio Olympics. In London they only had 4 athletes total and none of them were qualified (they all got WCs in their sports). It would be a shame if the ITF don't give her an Olympic wildcard

Re: Macedonian tennis!

Lina Keep going



I agree with you. I still thought FYROM was the official name of the country though. Wasn't it at some point?
