Thumbs up Irena Pavlovic vs Youlia Fedossova

Yes a lot of common points between Irena and Youlia.
Both born in 1988...Youlia is 2 months older than Irena.
Both are Eastern girl native...Russia for Youlia and Serbia for Irena.
Only a 34 spots gap in the WTA ranking: n°237 for Youlia and n°271 for Irena...which is not significative at tha level.

However, there's a real difference in their experience...as Youlia is a former n°107 (in august 2007) whereas Irena had her best at n°220.
She was 2 times QF at Tokyo Tier IV (in 2004 and 2006) beating in 2004 girls such as n°46 Shaughnessy and n°74 Morigami.
Victorie over n°89 Brandi (2005),
Victories over n°28 Medina Garrigues (USO 2006 reaching the 2nd rd as a qualifer), n°63 Ruano Pascual and n°83 Morigami (Tokyo 2006), n°98 Kanepi (St Raphael 2006 ITF), n°83 Fedak (Poitiers 2006 ITF).
Victories over n°50 Castano (1rst rd at AO 2007 as WC), n°93 Benesova (Antwerp qualies 2007), n°40 Kanepi (1rst rd as qualifer at Stokholm 2007 Tier IV)
No Top 100 victories in 2008.
No Top 100 victories so far in 2009.
Since the beginning of the year Youlia finished Runner up at Grenoble $10K and QF at Belfort $25K.

In comparaison, Irena has a less prestigious CV.
No main draw appearance on the WTA Tour.
Won 3 ITF Titles (2*$10K and 1*$25K).
However, Irena's got really her chance as she started the year better than Youlia and has been playing pretty well since a month with 1*SF at Tenerife $25K (beating Ani her 1rst Top 100 player) and the week after 1*QF at La Palma $25K.
I think she's really confident right now, and I hope she'll beat Youlia...which would mean 20 extra points and a potential Top 230 return.

Unhappy Early loss for Irena at Tessenderlo $25K

After 4 weeks of good results on the ITF circuit, that makes Irena who was nearly out of the Top 300 coming back at n253, Irena was unexpecting losing in the 1rst rd at Tessenderlo $25K.

That result needs explanation:
Irena played a really beatable opponent, considering her recent form, competing against 25 y.o n292 Nociarova.

1rst reason:
That was her 1rst match on clay. Last week, she was still competing on hard court

2nd reason:
Clay is definitively not her surface. Irena's game matches more on rapid surfaces where she can hit hard from bothsides and win the points pretty quickly. Clay requires to be more patient and also a better footwork...for sure, even if the double handed bothside groundstrokes could be interesting in term of angles and power...the players need to move quicker to have their bodies closer from the ball.
Hope she'll find the right training to adapt her game for the clay season.

BTW, does anyone know her upcoming schedule? She withdrew from Cannes $75K a couple of days ago...and I didn't find any other commitments in april.

Re: Irena Pavlovic

Irena lost 63 64. Ridiculous loss and a pretty bad way to waste a WC here.

Thumbs up Last results!

It seems that www.irenapavlovic.net is over...sad news...
All the more, Irena's having her best season so far...
Best single ranking at n218 last month
Best double ranking at n141 last month

Best runs in single:
2 times Runner Up at Gimhae $25K and Sarajevo $25K
2 times Semi Finalist at Minsk $25K and Caserta $25K

Best runs in double:
6 titles: Belfort 25k (/Bovina), Minsk 25K (/Bovina), Moscow 25K (/Bratchikova), Caserta 25K (/Dzehalevich) and Sarajevo $25K (Buryachok)

Hope she'll break the Top 200 soon in single!
I really believe that her good results in double help her to improve her single results

Thumbs up Top 200 for Irena Pavlovic next Monday!

Another step for Irena next week as she'll break the Top 200!

She reached another SF on the ITF circuit at Aschaffenburg $25K.

This week she played Istanbul $220K WTA qualies. She won her 1rst rd. she could have make it to the final round as she lost only 7/6 in the 3rd set vs talented Krystina Pliskova.
In double, she played with Kalashnikova. I don't think they played together before...however, they weren't lucky to toss Rybarikova/Pavlyuchenkova. They lose 6/3 6/0....that's part of the experience;

Next week, she'll be at Copenhagen...She has already play her 1rst rd in qualies beating Lykina in straight set...next on, is ..n2 Groenefeld...good luck nothing to lose.

I don't know yet her double partner...I notice that Bovina was there, playing the qualies...maybe they will play together as the pair has won several challengers together during the spring.

Irena Pavlovic's summer!

thx for the pics Rik!


Here some news from her latest results..
Starting with the good points, Irena broke the Top 200 for the 1rst time this summer with a career high at n194 in single. she kept rising in double too with a ranking at n129 at her best!

Behind those good stats...here results are so so...
with only 1 SF at Aschaffenburg $25K falling to young compatriot n358 Garcia.
she also started to compete on the WTA Tour with two 2nd rd in qualies at istanbul and copenhagen...with a regret at Istanbul where she lost 7/6 in the 3rd against talended n249 Kristyna Pliskova.

In double she won her 1rst match on the WTA tour with Laine at Istanbul beating Hercog/Martic. Tey lost to 3rd seed Senoglu/Voracoa.

Her ranking allows her to play the US Open qualies...with no success falling to n147 Tatishvili in 2 straight sets.

Now it's time for Irena to step up her game if she wants to reach another step aroundn150.
Next week, she's back on the ITF in Netherlands...
Wish her good luck!

Thumbs up Irena's last update Nice run in Netherlands

She played $25K Alphen A/D Rijn this week and will break new ranking high with her results.
Both in single and double, she finished Runner-up!
Starting with the single, as 2nd seed, she made it to the final without dropping a set...In final, she faced 5th seed/n227 Schruff but former n55. She didn't make a real opposition losing 6/0 6/3. The round before, Schruff was even more severe ousting Top seed/n126 Rus 6/1 6/1. This final means 34 extra points for Irena's ranking..
In double, she was playing with Lykina. As Top seed, they were surprised in Final falling to local favourite team Harmsen/Schoofs.

Next week, Irena should move to italy to play another ITF: $50 K Mestre. Wish her good luck!
