I remember reading the interview with her father where he stated that she was offered a wild card for Miami but they turned it down. He thought that it would not be good for her to wrestle with more experience players just yet.

An article is on croatian. This is for those one who don't understand.

Ana's fadher said that Ana will play in second half of march 25k in England. After that she will play two 50k in the USA. Before that (11th and 18th of March) she will play two 15k in England. She will play RG and Wimbledon. He also said that she got WC for AO Qualifiers2014 because she won juniors AO but he said that it would be nice if she can be around 250 position so that she wont need WC

Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana's fadher said that Ana will play in second half of march 25k (probably Edgbaston25k, 8th of April because I couldn't found any other tournament) in England. After that she will play two 50k (Charlotesville 50k, clay 22nd of April; Indian Harbour Beach 29th of April,50k,clay...I found this on ITF website in acording to what he said) in the USA. Before that (11th and 18th of March) she will play two 15k in England (Bath, hard indoor; Sunderland, hard indoor... He didn't said but I found this on ITF website). She will play RG and Wimbledon. He also said that she got WC for AO Qualifiers2014 because she won juniors AO but he said that it would be nice if she can be around 250 position so that she wont need WC

Such a great choice for her to play on Green Clay, as it is probably her best surface
I am shocked she is only going for 2 tournaments though
The British tournaments are a good way to gain some points cheaply
It will be very hard for her to make Top 250 if she is only allowed 10 tournaments and is playing this type of schedule
I think she can do it if she makes QF, SF, Finals or Wins all of them though

Re: Ana Konjuh

This QWC was something I was secretly hoping for, but wasn't sure if she'll be getting it - nice news definately. As for the schedule, I'll just say I hope gets there ready to do some damange, cause she won't get many more events to play for the rest of the year after these five. If she is allowed 10 in total this would mean they're hoping for around 100 points from those 5. Not impossible, but she'll have to be brutally focused and also get a bit of luck from the draw.

Re: Ana Konjuh

From another article, Christian Schneider (coach) about Ana:

"As far as I'm concerned, Ana played on her usual level. But what delights is the calmness which she brings when the times our tough, as well as the fact that in those times in a match, she always shows her best tennis. Without a doubt, that is the quality of great players."

BTW, is Christian Schneider Croatian because he has quite a German name

Re: Ana Konjuh

Schneider is Austrian.

It will be hard to make it into top 250 with this restrictions but Ana can do it. She said that she watched some matches of singles qualifications and that she believes that she can play against most of that players

Can't wait to see Ana on pro circuit

Re: Ana Konjuh

"I'm going to play (only) the junior grand slams," Ana said. I am going to play $10,000's, $25,000s and $50,000s because I just want to go now for my WTA ranking."

Konjuh said she was looking forward to playing for Croatia in the Fed Cup alongside 16-year-old Donna Vekic, who played in the main draw in Melbourne.

"It's another great experience," she said. "I'm going to get a chance to play with some pro players. I am just happy to be there."

Ok thanks
It seems that Ana gets along really well with him and that he has done great things for her game
I think he's hilarious
I loved the video where he was drenching in sweat and Ana looked like she had gone for a walk
I hope she stays with him all the way

She will play 2 50Ks in America, 1 25K in GBR and 2 15Ks
If she can for example:
Make 2 50K SFs, Final 25K and win 1 15K, RU in other, she should gain her 133 points if my maths is right
