Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana 8th on the Istanbul quali list 2 days before the sign-in deadline...MD not gonna happen, that's now practically certain.

Looking forward to the draw!

Never say never I guess... OK, we shall see, but at the moment MD seems quite plausible.

Re: Ana Konjuh

50k Istanbul Q:
Quote:
(2)Ana Konjuh (CRO) v BYE
Gabriela Talaba (ROU) v Nina Zander (GER)
Melis Bayraktaroglu (TUR) v Irem Talya Koken (TUR)
(5)Laura-Ioana Andrei (ROU) v BYE
Zander could be dangerous - defeated Hlavackova in Limoges and made quarters there (despite Andrea's singles form this year that's some accomplishment).

TT Singles: (CH: #40) | TT Doubles: (CH: #1) | Suicide: (CH: #1) | Tipping: (CH: #2)| FITD: (CH: #1)

Re: Ana Konjuh

Oh good, I was actually hoping for a quali spot as she does need matches considering the form, and this way she won't have to play anyone from the top 300 for the first two matches - great to get some rhythm going before facing the top 200's.

A step at a time and no looking ahead this time from me. Good luck Ana


P. S. I hope the organizers continue the nice tradition of Turkish events and provide some streaming...

Re: Ana Konjuh

In QR2 Ana plays Zander and, on paper at least, she looks like the favorite. Zander is a 23 y.o who's never made it past #362 and won just one 10k in all of her career (two years ago). In QR1 here she beat Talaba (currently #1000) 6:2, 6:4. The only tiny problem is that this title of her's came on an indoor event (similar to this one in Istanbul), and considering Ana's form lately this could be a tricky match. It's scheduled as the first one of the day on it's court, starts at 13:00 CET.

Good luck Ana

Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana serving more comfortably by each service game, currently at 4 aces as well, but still can't do quite enough on the opponent's serve to get that break back - 2:3*

Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana gets the break with her first BP after Zander was 40:15 up in that service game (4 consecutive points by Ana)!

*3:3

Re: Ana Konjuh

And we're into the tie-break, Ana serving first, leads total points won 36:33 - hope that's a good sign. Come on Ana
