Solid start against a very dangerous opponent. Go Ana!

Amen to that. Btw, Monday is her day off.

Re: Ana Konjuh

This is from croatian tennis forum about Ana's injury.
"Ovakva je situacija vezano za ozljedu, to je urođena koštana izraslina koja nesportašu nikad nebi zasmetala, ali njoj kao tenisačici zbog velikih napora dolazi do čestog trenja živaca u laktu zbog čega joj se bol najviše projicira na triceps i rame(zbog toga su prvo i mislili da je problem u ramenu). Kako nema nikakvih ograničenja u pokretu(samo bol) i nema mogučnosti daljneg pogoršanja ozljede može igrati tenis. Tim je odlučio da je ona već sada i sa tim problemima na razini top50 u svijetu i nežele ništa riskirati(nijedna operacija i oporavak nije bezazlen) dok ne osvoji neke novce kao sigurnost za budućnost i dok nestvori nekakav ranking"

Re: Ana Konjuh

the translator did not do very well, did this mean she is not getting surgery after US Open?

Re: Ana Konjuh

Translation: "This is the situation regarding the injury; it's an inborn skeletal outgrowth, which wouldn't bother someone who is not an athlete, but since she is a professional tennis player it's causing her elbow nerves to receive additional pressure because of the intensity of the sport and this makes the pain project itself mostly to the tricep and the shoulder (which is why everyone initially thought that it's a shoulder problem). Since her movement is not restricted (no problems other than the pain) and there's no chance of the problem getting worse, she can continue to play. The team has concluded that she is now, and despite all these problems, already on a top 50 level and they don't want to jeopardize anything (as no surgery and recovery is without it's risks) until she insures her financial future and builds a decent ranking."

Re: Ana Konjuh

Lol top 50 level?))) I really think Ana is best junior in the world and better than 90% of the girls up to 20, but top 50 maybe is too much, let's say top 10
So as faras i understand she will play full schedule until end of the season-this is great with little bit luck she may get in top 220-230 and play AO Q!!!
Thank you very much ma_re!
Any idea where she is playing next after Us Open?

Petra Kvitova, Viktorya Azarenka, Maria Sharapova

You're welcome. She is actually safe for AO qualies cause she won the junior title this year so no worries there. After USO she should play a 25k in Seville, starting September 23rd, followed by another 25k in Vallduxo the week after.
Her last two tournaments of the year should be in Australia, both 50k, scheduled between October 21st and November 3rd.

Btw, latest on ITF about Ana...http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/new...e-us-open.aspx

Second and third round should be much easier, Ferro and Hsu are out

Re: Ana Konjuh

Hard to imagine Ana earned her very first WTA point in late October last year and that she hasn't appeared on the ranking list until late November - now she's already well inside top 300 despite having a (roughly) two month injury break. Siniakova is doing something similar but she is 18 months older, hasn't had serious medical issues and is only 20-ish spots ahead. How's that for amazing

Yes, that was a great idea, Ana.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Yes at that time I thought the exact same thing (and posted it here)

But jokes aside, her coach says she'll need to raise her game seriously if she is to make an impact in this tournament. But I'm pretty sure she can do it

Re: Ana Konjuh

Hope Ana won't get a tough schedule tomorrow, seems like quite a few matches might get postponed.
