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

This week she's up 10 more spots in singles, so from 251 to 241, but during these past two days she also withdrew from both events (Dubai 75k, Pune 25k) that she was scheduled to play in the weeks to come. Hope it's not an injury again.

^^ Well, this ranking might be just good enough, but we'll know for sure later on (some say the q-list is out right before Christmas).

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

Ivana is already making a back-up plan in case she doesen't reach AO QD, she's listed to play Plantation 25k, or a 25k in China, both of which start on the 10th. She's currently 12th on the Plantation list, and 9th on the other one.

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

Did anyone else notice that Ivana has a new pic on her WTA profile? It's a bit Morticia in my opinion:

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

Yeah, I've noticed it quite a while ago, but didn't want to mention anything (figured that someone will, sooner or later). My first impression was that she looks like the Wicked biatch of the West

She's playing $25,000 Andrezieux-Boutheon this week, and in R1 will face Remondina (#245, c-h 240, h2h 0:0). Seems like a potentially tricky first opponent. Good luck Ivana!

Ivana, Queen of the $25Ks, won easily:
Ivana LISJAK (CRO) defeated Anna-Giulia REMONDINA (ITA) 6-3 6-0

Very tricky match in R2 against Domachowska, who crushed #7 seed DE GUBERNATIS 6-1 6-2. Good luck to Ivana. She's going to need it.

^^ No kidding! Don't know in what sort of form Domachowska is lately, but considering her career stats, this is a really good result for Ivana!

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

Lost the quarters 3 & 3 to the second seed Barthel. Not too bad of a result (Barthel is currently on a c-h #192). But she'll have to make up for the rest of 2010 AO points, cause there she won 40 and this week in France just 14.

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

Ivana is playing in next week's Grenoble $25K. Unfortunately, she missed the MD by one spot (she's the top seed in qualies). Fortunately, she got a good draw so should be able to qualify:

(1)Ivana Lisjak (CRO) v (wc)Solene Ficheux (FRA)
(15)Tatia Mikadze (GEO) v (wc)Estelle Cascino (FRA)

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

Looks like Ivana's losing her "midas touch" when it comes to 25k's - she needed 3 sets to beat Mikadze (a girl who's never been higher than 281) and qualify for Grenoble. Hope she finds something better once the time for main draw matches comes.
