Re: Ana Konjuh

Amazing week for Ana. In one tournament she more than doubled her ranking points. She'll jump ~300 spots in the rankings, to ~470. And next week is another good opportunity to pick up points.

Btw, a Croat--Marko Goles Babic--also won the boys title in Austria.

Yeah it was today in the afternoon, but I missed it.
It was her father talking, he said they get huge number of offers, that so many recognize future star in Ana.
He is trying to make her focused only in tennis though, not to think about money or anything else.
That's all friend told me about it.

Huge jump (297 spots)!

Let's also congratulate Adrijana Lekaj. She had a similarly impressive jump this week (in relative terms), from 249 to 158 (91 spots).

Both have good chances to move up to new CH rankings again this week. Ana is playing at the G4 in Germany. The draw is not much stronger than in Austria last week so Ana should do well.

Adrijana is playing at the G1 in Colombia. She should be able to win her first two matches but would then likely run into #57 Lemmens in R3.

Good luck to both!

Re: Ana Konjuh

In the first round of the Tennis-point Hamburg ITF tournament Ana will play against Fiona Ferro from Italy.

Ferro is just 9 months older than Ana and she is #651 on junior ranking list.

They played against each other last year and Ana won that match 6-4 6-3.Good luck!!!

Re: Ana Konjuh

Don't wanna get ahead of ourselves but if Ana plays like last week, she should be able to reach at least the QF.

Re: Ana Konjuh

^ Excellent. Next up is the #7 seed, Lodikova (#414).

Should Ana win she'll move up to ~420. Good luck.

Oh, and by the way, congratulations on breaking this week into the top 500!

Re: Ana Konjuh

Lodikova is older and have more experience at ITF level but that's all.No big results for Lodikova.

Last year two semis at G5, this year two QF at G4, she never even played G3,2,1 and she will soon be 16 years old, not a big talent IMO...

Re: Ana Konjuh

Copa Barranquilla 2012, R1: Adrijana LEKAJ (CRO) defeated Nabila FARAH (BOL) 6-7(4) 6-3 6-0

In R2 she plays the #16 seed, GIANGRECO CAMPIZ. Adrjana beat her last week so hopefully she'll do it again.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Copa Barranquilla 2012, R2: Adrijana LEKAJ (CRO) defeated Camila GIANGRECO CAMPIZ (PAR) (16) 6-2 6-2

It'll be much tougher in R3: she plays the #2 seed, Lemmens (#38). Regardless, Adrijana will reach a new CH ranking next week

Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana is playing in next week's G4 Radenci tournament in Slovenia. She will most likely be seeded.
