Re: Irena Pavlovic

Bravo Irena . This will give her some precious points! Her schedule has been terrible in the last months, she didn't play anywhere since she hates clay, then she gave up on the US tournaments to focus on poor 25k that didn't provide as many results as she expected. She's still stuck in top 200-250.

That's good news that she didn't miss this opportunity to advance, first time that she makes qualies with her own rank I think. Well done and beat Stéphanie again please!

For sure good news frmo Irena, with this victory and 15 added points...she should be back in the TOP 230...

Now she's to face erratic Stephanie Foretz who is much more experienced than Irena...and had pretty good statistics in slam...
Stephanie can hit really hard from both sides with her powerfull flat shots...in the other hand, if she's in a bad day, she can multiply the UE with no plan B....a little bit like Irena in fact...

So let's wait for the result...

With a little bit of effort, and she could reach, what we're all expecting for so long, the TOP 200 (need 25 extra points)...so maybe not after the USO...but soon

Re: Irena Pavlovic USO qualies

Expected loss for Irena against her compatriot Foretz...
However Irena fought in that match losing in 3 sets 3/6 6/3 3/6.

Considering her stats, she can be a little bit concerned about her break point conversion...4 out of 14 points...Foretz did a little bit better 5 out of 12.

Hope she'll be able to take it as a good experience for the future.

Next up for Irena is Martina Franca $25K in Italy where she will be one of the Top seed (3rd).
A good tournement there would help her to get closer from the Top 200

Re: Irena Pavlovic

Disappointing . She really could have won this match, but she also succombs to pressure in the last games of the match .
Hope she builds on this relatively good tournament. Allez Irena.

Re: Irena Pavlovic

We are always between hope and disappointment with Irena. I cannot believe that she hasn't broken top 200 yet, she had so many opportunities... I don't think that playing those 25k was the right tactics, she should have played higher tournaments when she was in form.
Good luck in Granada. She has to do better .

Red face September to forget!

After Madrid, Irena kept playing on the challenge Tour at Granada $25K and Helsinki $25K with no success.

Either at Granada or at Helsinki, despite a seeded status, she wasn't able to win a match.
At Granada, she lost in the 1rst rd to n°349 Segnini!
At Helsinki, she fall to n°317 Kuzmina!

The only satisfaction in september was to reach her ever best ranking at n°220!

Next week, she will fall around n°240 wih those poor results!

Next week, she's playing in GB at Barnstaple $50K where a bunch of good players are commited such as n°94 Ani, n°95 Bremond, n°97 Vinci...Hope she won't have a tough toss in the 1rs rd.

Re: Irena Pavlovic

Irena reaches QF in Mauritius. 2 straight sets wins over Parra-Santonja & Clarke, good job .
Her blog is really fun to read, we can clearly imagine the atmosphere there ... Seems like it was a pretty clever idea to travel in this place!
