1-6 3-6.

Well it was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests and she played some nice points, but my lord she makes some stupid errors.

If she cuts them down and learns how to play some defensive tennis, she could crack the top 150 at some point. Confidence plays a big part in her game. Hopefully she hasn't reached her peak.

California isn't nowhere in NCAA Was a starter for California Bears, which was NCAA runner up 2 years in a row; Boj herself had a monster Fall season in her senior year, was ranked pretty high, and in the individual tourney almost upset Florida's then #1 Marrit Boonstra. That was in 2009.

Forgot to tune in and just saw a couple of final pts against Kerber Couldn't recognize her at a glance

Expected result but sounds like Bojana put in a half decent showing considering it's her 1st ever GS (main draw or qualifying) and only her 3rd tour level tournament. Sounds like she did better than Izzy who is ranked higher and has more experience at this level. Hopefully Boj continues her rise this year!

And @fantic, I take your point but NCAA doesn't really rate a mention in Australia, so from our perspective, she really did seem to come from "nowhere". Glad she did though!

Congrats to the Boj on winning R1 doubles:

Bobusic/Jones def. Dekmeijere/Kondratieva 6-4 6-1. They were down 0-2 and must have really dominated from then on A nice paycheck and lots of doubles points for Boj.

Interview with Jovana after her Burnie R1 win. She sounds mature, level-headed and quite lovely



Aiming for qualies at the French and US Open and wants to see her BFFs in Paris. Awww...

Nice (expected) straight sets win over Em Starr. Now faces Mon in the quarter finals.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Hey no wimby qualies in her plans?

I love these little interviews. Gives us an insight into these girls that we follow, week in week out.

Boj sounds like a great chick
