Irena Pavlovic 2008 schedule and 2007 highlights

If she doesn't withdraw..Irena decided to start the season in the Unites states competing in 2 challengers beginning o nthe 7th of january
-$25K Tampa Bay directly entrance in the MD
-$25 K Surprise where she's 8th seed in the QD. Maybe a little bit far to get into the MD within 2 weeks.

Irena finished the year at n260 with a career high at n255 (October 8, 2007)

I hope Irena will level up her consistency this year. She proved in 2007 that she was able to bit Top 200 players, she won her 1rst $25K challenger In Australia...but sh also had some unacceptable loss considering her talent.

Here are her Top 200 victories this year:

Melanie South (181): 6/3 6/2
Marina Erakovic (163): 6/2 6/4
Shiho Hisamatsu (190): 6/4 6/1
Katie O'Brien (141): 6/3 6/3
Monica Niculescu (179): 6/3 6/3
Katie O'Brien (134)-2nd time this year-: 6/1 6/3
Monique Adamczak (167): 6/2 5/7 6/4


She also performed strong resistance vs current TOP 100 players:
Yung Jan Chan (69): losing 1/6 6/3 6/4
Kateryna Bondarenko (39): losing 3/6 6/3 6/4
Casey Dellacqua (106): losing 6/2 1/6 6/2


But also desapointing loss:
Susanna Lingman (671):6/4 5/7 6/1
Neuza Silva (442):7/6 6/4 (even if Neuza had a great year finishing n206)
Chanelle Scheepers (370): 4/6 6/0 6/4 (same as Neuza, great year for Chanelle who came back to the Top 200 at n192)
Anasatasia Sevastova (391): 6/4 6/2 (n254 at the 2007 YED ranking)
Stanislava Hrosenska (302): 2/6 6/4 6/1 (n244 at the 2007 YED ranking)
Hanna Noonni (474):7/5 6/4
Stefania Boffa (399):6/4 3/6 6/2

Re: Irena Pavlovic

Irena starts well the year in Tampa with a 64 62 win over Evtimova . She faces next either Rao or Rampre.
Would be great if she had a deep run here!

Irena Pavlovic latest news!

Irena is competing at LA QUINTA $25K

After her desapointing loss to Rampre (who was pretty on fire at St Leo reaching the SF), Irena is back to the competition at La Quita.

Despite a pretty strong 1rst rd toss, IRENA won

Irena (n249) beat Lauren Albenese (n254): 6/1 4/6 7/6!

What a match and good tight win, hope it will bounce her confidence.

Next match vs 8th seed/n208 Seiko OKAMOTO.

Hope Irena's going to upset her..which is absolutely possible. Irena proved in the past taht she could beat Top 200 player.

If she's making to the QF, she could face come backer Sesil Karatancheva!

Re: Irena Pavlovic

Irena keeps on winning and defeated Okamoto 62 75 . Sesil is as expected her next opponent, should be a nice occasion for her to rate her level. Allez!

Red face Irena stopped in QF at La Quinta $25K

Expected loss for Irena in QF at La Quinta.

Irena had to face come backer prodigy Sesil Karatencheva.

She lost 6/4 6/2...that means she was pretty close in the 1rst set!

Don't forget that Sesil was n35 at only 16 y.o in november 2005.

She's back to the competition this year after being banned for 2 years for positive drugs control.

Since her comeback, she's undefeated!

Irena will get 7 points from this QF and will break a career high ranking at n235!

She will be back in Europe next week, commited to play at Sutton $25K in Great Britain.

She always play strong tennis in GB...winning her 1rst ITF events!
She's in the MD list at n17.

Hope Irena will be able to break the Top 200 within RG 08 in order to aim a Main Draw WC!

Re: Irena Pavlovic

Irena .

Pretty nice summary! Yeah this is the kind of losses Irena shouldn't be ashamred of, she gave Sesil a nice resistance so that's already convincing . As you said, GB has always been a place of success for Irena, now she has even some time to adapt herself to the time change. Hope she can be in form to keep this good results coming .
Anyway I think Irena will have this WC in RG since Parmentier, Cornet & Pin will be for sure in MD.

Irena Pavlovic at Sutton $25K

1rst rd:
Irena PAVLOVIC (247) beat (Q)Carla MRAZ (523): 7/6 6/7 7/6

What a victory from Irena!!

I was expected an easier victory...however a win is a win!
Maybe she's a little bit tired with the jetlag coming back from the States!

Next opponent will be either Zuzana KUCOVA (244) or 6th seed/n°207 Sandra Zahlavova.

Hope she'll boost her confidence with that tight victory and level up her game!


Thanks Iceland...and good analysis too concerning the WC granted...

Thumbs up Irena Pavlovic at Sutton $25K

Irena PAVLOVIC (247) beat 6th seed/n207 Sandra Zahlavova
Easy 2nd rd victory for Irena who overpowered the 6th seed Zahlavova!

She took all the benefits from her 1rst dangerous rd vs Mraz...

Next match, she'll face Hlavackova (n250) who ousted local favourite 4th seed/n186 Cavaday...

Tough match in perspective...

However if she can make it, she has a pretty open draw...with surprising WC Elliot and 7th seed Hradecka in her of the draw...

Red face Irena Pavlovic stopped in QF at Sutton $25K

Andrea Hlavackova (250) beat Irena PAVLOVIC (247): 1/6 7/6 6/1


... What an occasion missed for Irena...she was so close tuo finish the match in 2 sets!
Losing the 2nd set in a tie break when you've won so easely the 1rst...most of the time it signes the match ending. Irena may have been unable to control her nerves!!

That's really bad, because the draw was completely open with (Q)Elliot in SF and (Q)Larsson in final

With a victory in Sutton, she would have added 25 points instead of 7 points! which would have mean a n°205/210 ranking...instead of n°225


However, she'll have to forget that missing oppportunity and regroup for next week Stockholm $25K where she may have to play the qualies...she's 4 places behind to get into the MD...today

Unhappy Latest news Irena Pavlovic

No Irena at Stockholm, she withdrew...
She's next on the commitement list at Capriolo $25K.

She's 2nd in the quali list...hope she'll benefit from a couple of withdraws to get into the MD.
