Re: Other Croatian juniors

Bernarda Pera won this week's G2 in Italy. She was pretty impressive, losing only 14 games in 5 matches:

1st round: Bernarda PERA (CRO) 6-0 6-1 Tina BOKHUA (RUS)
2nd Round: Bernarda PERA (CRO) 6-3 6-0 Storm SANDERS (AUS) [5]
Quarterfinal: Bernarda PERA (CRO) 6-3 6-2 Beatrice LOMBARDO (ITA)
Semifinal: Bernarda PERA (CRO) 6-1 6-0 Valeria PROSPERI (ITA)
Final: Bernarda PERA (CRO) 6-3 6-1 Ivana JOROVIC (SRB) [7]

In one tournament, Bernarda will cut her ranking almost exactly in half, from 274 to ~135-140

What's most impressive is that she'll be in the top 150 after only four "events" (ie, singles and doubles at two tournaments). There are no players ranked higher than her with fewer events.

Also, she's undefeated in singles this year: she has won all 11 matches she has played
