Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Doubles draw is out and Katya is teaming up with Arruabarrena-Vecino again. They have a rough draw though, playing the #2 seeds Zakopalova/Daniilidou.

They are a good team, so an upset is not impossible

I couldn't believe this win. More from Aravane's side. Wasn't she top 20 just two or so years ago? Talk about free fall.

At least with Katya "Unpredictable" Ivanova, you know what you're getting.

From beating Rezai to losing to Czink
Czink is better than her ranking, and is a top 50 player when playing well. I expected than better than 4 games though.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Probably the easiest match she's had in, who knows how long? Won 3 & 0. Now faces Candlelight.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

Katya going NOWHERE

Another year of treading water at best. Something needs to change, and fast.

She is in the doubles draw as a WC, and she has a good shot at a first round win.

I think she may change her nationality to Portugal soon. She lives there (and has for a few years) and has now been given a WC into the doubles event with a home player. I've been thinking this for about a year now.

Hi.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

She's so unpredictable, but I actually expect her to beat Birnerova... So she probably won't.

Usually plays decent at RG.

Re: The Exquisite Ekaterina Ivanova Jumping Thread!

She'll be out of the top 200 soon if things don't pick up.

Good luck, please try and hold your seeding and make the semis...
