This comment actually rubs me the wrong way for some reason. At 14 she knows what it takes to be a pro? I'm sure she didn't mean it in a condescending manner (and perhaps this is translated from Croatian) but I don't like it.

You can tell from the YT videos recently posted of her by zootennis that, as Taylor basically said, she hits the felt off the ball, especially on her forehand. Her stroke production reminds me of Sprem a bit.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Just few moments ago I saw reportage about Ana on Croatian TV in sports show "Olimp".
She talked about her season and about her goals, her coach said few things as well.
Also Iva Majoli commented on eveyrthing, she said that Croatia has good team now for the future and expects to fight among the best 3 years from now.

Majoli said that Ana is a complete player which is not easy to found nowadays, that she has an excellent service, backhand,slice, drop shot,...

Re: Ana Konjuh

I bought yesterday 'Nedjeljni Jutarnji' (Sunday Morning) where there was an article about Ana. It is on 4 big pages. First two pages were reserved for Ana's photo only. I heve never seen such a big photo of anyone in the newspapers...hahaha...
I very liked what Iva Majoli said. She said that Ana has wonderful family which is very important for a normal sports developement. Majoli also said that AER is excellent thing which gives oportunity to young players to develop slowly and to be prepared for challenges in future time and that she made some mistakes when she was young so that she hopes that she will be able to help her with some advices.

Ana said that she will play next year all GS, some GA and 10k and 25k.

Interesting considering the fact that she was awarded some (I think two) direct entries into 50k's for her results in juniors. I doubt this means she won't take those offers.

Maybe she's gonna try a few 10K/25K before and see how it turns out and then decide to give a try to the 50Ks.

Re: Ana Konjuh

She is entitled into 2 events UP TO 50K, and 1 Event UP TO 25K
If she plays a 25K and loses in Round 1 or 2, she might chose to use the others for 25K
Just because she can get a WC into higher level tournaments, doesn't mean it's necessarily a good idea to waste a JE on it

Re: Ana Konjuh

Yesterday Ana had an audience with president of Croatia, Ivo Josipovic.

Conversation lasted for 30 minutes and president showed interest in Ana's training conditions as well as her professional tennis plans in near future.
