Re: Ana Konjuh

Simply amazing; congratulations to the whole Konjuh team for their first (and hopefully not last) grand slam title!

Of course, the best thing now is to stay firmly on the ground cause the job is not done yet, but it's amazing to realize she just won only 7th Croatian girls grand slam title and 4th in doubles. Will she join Kostanic and Lucic by winning more than one; will she handle the mounting pressure; will there be enough left in the tank? So many interesting questions looking for answers.

There's just one thing missing - looks like the only streamed matches from RLA tomorrow will be the women's final and the men's doubles final

I don't think she should have any pressure. Two months ago she was big underdog vs Siriakova and she is 2 years younger.
True is she should win by her quality but when you are that young you have a right (let's say that) to loose in R1 or 2.

I'm just talking about the pressure of expectations - now everyone will expect her to do the same what she did a day ago in doubles. Not to mention that this h2h makes things even tougher in a sense, adding to the pressure, eventhough it's great that she won both matches thus far played against her next opponent.

Pressure is now off with first GS title and I'm sure that she will destroy Sinakova

You might dig something out, who knows, but don't hold your breath. Usually streams reserved for the States are protected so that no one outside of the US can access them. This time it might be different, but somehow I doubt it.
