Re: Ana Konjuh

i really disagree. they were in a tough spot--either play RG with no warm up or play Maribor. She had a great week in Maribor and now we are where we are. I think a 25K final is worth more than a junior slam at this point. And, this week has only proven once again that she's the best junior out there.

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: Ana Konjuh

I really needed to calm down after the singles to come back with a remotely sensible comment.

To say that she deserved to win wouldn't even cut it. To say that she fought would be a huge understatement. She just went out there and showed the heart of a champion and should be given all the congratulations in the world for her effort. Of course, her opponent deserves a lot of praise as well, as she gave an incredible amount of resistance until the very end. She was, however, unlucky with the fact that Ana was the one on the other side. And Ana doesn't give up. Ana doesn't calculate. She just goes out there to give it her all and see if it's enough. Cause that's what champions do.

The sheer number of turnarounds in this match made it into absolutely the most exciting one that I ever followed when it comes to juniors, and it was a tough one to go through, knowing all the circumstances. Cause it would actually be a great misfortune if she would've lost this one. Not because of the result in itself, but because she is just too good to go out in the quarters of a junior slam. Not to mention the bad luck she went through earlier this year. It just wouldn't be fair.

Semis is a really good result for any junior when it comes to the highest categories, and now I'm really OK with whatever it is to happen next. After all, how many of them ever made it to the semis of Paris after winning Melbourne. Of course, like everybody, I hate the fact that she is playing doubles and wish she would've quit it. But I sense that she is just not that kind of person. She is probably too driven to accept a withdrawal unless absolutely necessary. And that's another thing that needs to be applauded, even if it jeopardizes a potentially historic achievement. She is gutsy above all. A fighter first and foremost. And we need such people to make us remember that great things in life really do happen.

Proud of you Ana

P. S. One for the Croats (or those who follow winter sports): Is Ana having one of her own "no glove moments"? Makes you wonder.

I actually wasn't refering to the end result, but more to the one of a kind, against all odds kind of an achievement, but OK. Anyway, here's a pic from Paris, shows physio tape on her right arm:
