Good for Ivana!

In R2 she should have played the #3 seed, Evgeniya Rodina (#118)--except that Rodina lost. Instead, Ivana plays Julia Boserup (WC; #558).

This is a good opportunity for Ivana to reach the QF.

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Looks like a solid win to start off the tournament. Too bad she (most probably) won't make it to RG qualies, but I think she looks almost certain to make it to those of Wimbledon.

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Ivana got a little bump up in the rankings this week, from 218 to 211. Doesn't it seem like she's been ranked in the #210-225 range forever?!?

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Here's Ivana's section of the Raleigh MD:

(218) LISJAK, Ivana [3] v (304) VANDEWEGHE, Coco
(395) ROLLE, Ahsha v [WC] (707) MIN, Grace
Qualifier/Lucky Loser v (410) RAMPRE, Petra
(390) KONTA, Johanna v (241) STEVENSON, A [6]

Vandeweghe will be tough but if Ivana wins that she has a good chance to make the semis. Good luck!

Ivana and her doubles partner, Rampre, won their R1 doubles match in Raleigh today easily, 62 60. They beat Janowicz and Koroleva. Hopefully this is a good omen for Mirjana, who plays Koroleva in singles tomorrow.

Vandeweghe retired against Ivana today: 46 62 Ret.

In R2 Ivana plays Ahsha Rolle (#395). C'mon, Ivana, you can win this!

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

It looks like with her Raleigh R1 win Ivana will move up to #200. She hasn't been top 200 since November 2007.

Congratulations, Ivana!

A little bump up in the rankings this week brings Ivana back to the top 200 for the first time since November 2007; she moved up from 211 to 200.

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

With all the recent attention on Ajla, Karolina and, especially, Mirjana, Ivana has been forgotten by this board

Let's show her some love and wish her well in her Wimbledon Q1 match; she plays Misaki Doi (#163, current and career-high).

Good luck, Ivana!

PS: Coincidentally, last week Doi beat Anna Smith (Mirjana's upcoming opponent) at Birmingham, on grass; the score was 75 61.

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Yeah, looks like Ivana chose rather to play fewer events but get more decent results, than to play a lot on the small tournaments, so that's why we rarely talk about her matches. I certainly hope she plays well in Wimbledon, but her draw doesen't look easy at all.

Best of luck Ivana
