Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread
R1 seems winnable (girl ranked close to Iva's QR3 opponent, but older)
I didn't think she would do it but Iva pulled off the surprise:
Iva MEKOVEC (CRO) defeated Liubov VASILYEVA (RUS) 6-4 6-2
Congratulation, Iva! Very nice win: in straight sets against a player ranked close to the top 100.
in R2 Iva could face a really tough challenge and a real test - the fifth seed Kowase, who is the same age as Iva but already at #15 in the junior rankings.
Kowase was crushed 61 61 by Elena-Teodora CADAR (#59)
Best of luck against her tomorrow, Iva!
