Thumbs up Re: Ana Konjuh

Meltdown in third set Kucova wins 7-6 6-7 6-0

Ana made amazing comeback twice, but I guess she was exhausted after that?

Anyway another good tournament, top300 cracked for new CH ranking

Re: Ana Konjuh

Yup, can't really blame her for this one. A strange match to say the least, but it was a three hour marathon after all and she was toast after the confirmation of the first break in the third I'd say. All in all, she did show some nice game at times, along with an incredible fighting spirit, which is more than eough for her age, not to mention reaching a semi on quite a big event. With this she'll be around #275, which is, needless to say, an achievement in itself. Great week Konjuh team!

Re: Ana Konjuh

I keep having to remind myself that Ana hasn't even started her pro career, and yet, she's holding her own against some journeywomen players in these ITF tournaments who are much older than Ana is. And she already beat Ula in Fed Cup, and she is a veteran compared to Ana. The days of teenage Grand Slam winners are long-gone, so this is as good as it gets. Well-done, Ana!

I am pretty sure she has turned pro
Anyway, can't really fault her for this but really thought she had this tournament
Onto the next one She should win both Bendigo 50Ks if she plays well and will most likely make Australian Open qualifying like she wanted with about 6 tournaments

Well, not officially. The U.S. Open will be her last junior Grand Slam.

True, this is her transitional year so I guess we can say she is still not a total pro. But in a few months...

Ana Konjuh ‏@anakonjuh
Night in #dubrovnik



That's very nice. Just a wild guess: is that the Danube River?

Danube is much further inland, close to where I live, Ana is from a seaside town on the Adriatic

Dubrovnik is on the Adriatic. That's the area around the old port.

Actually, she has turned pro officially IIRC. You can be a Pro and play Juniors (Taylor Townsend for example, Anett included) and being Pro simply means you get to keep your prize money instead of the tournament spending your money on amenities for you In that sense, I am quite sure she is officially professional
