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

Honestly, I don't think this is such a bad result. Erakovic is a former top50 in both singles and doubles, and Ivana said herself that she'll take time and work her way up slowly if needed. Her game is obviously not where it could be at this point, but a semi on a 25k isn't such a bad result given her current ranking.

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

Ivana is the 8th seed of qualies in Monzon 50k (Spain), and in QR1 she will, for the second time in a row, at the same stage of the same tournament, face Justine Ozga. Last year Ozga won 2:6, 7:5, 6:0, but in 2009 Ivana won easily on the clay of Padova 25k (0 & 2), so we can at least hope for the best eventhough Ivana is not in the best of form lately. Ozga is also quite far from her best ever ranking of 259 (currently at 354). Fingers crossed!

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

In QR2, Ivana beat Eikeri (#594) 62 64. The last hurdle will likely be the top qualies seed, Savinykh (#197)

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

^ The good news is that Ivana qualified: Ivana LISJAK (CRO) (8) defeated Valeria SAVINYKH (RUS) (1) 2-6 6-2 6-4

The bad news is that in R1 she plays the #2 seed, Flipkens

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

Yeah, one of the worst possible MD placements. But the important thing is that she qualified. For big results you need a bit of luck too, and you can't get lucky with the draw every time. Hope she gives it her best - maybe it'll be enough (Flipkens is far from her best right now, so you never know). A win would give us an all-Croatian encounter in R2.

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

Lost to Flipkens 4 & 1 (), but she and Chaknashvili won the R1 of doubles by taking out the 4th seeds, Bratchikova/Ivanova in three. In the quarters they'll face the unseeded team of Dentoni/Pivovarova.

Good luck girls!

Monzon 50k, doubles QF: Chaknashvili/Lisjak def. Dentoni/Pivovarova 6:3, 7:5.

In the semis they'll face the top seeds, Camerin/Kustova.

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

Monzon 50k doubles semifinals:

Chaknashvili/Lisjak def. (1) Camerin/Kustova 6:3, 6:2...

Bovina/Savinykh def. (3) Klemenschits/Voegele 7:5, 4:6, 10:6

This final alone will get Ivana a much more decent doubles ranking. She'll move from current 520's to around #400.

Good luck in the finals!

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

They lost the final 6-1 2-6 [10-4] Too bad cause it was so close, but still a nice effort from Ivana to go this far. Hope these doubles were a useful match practice for singles too.

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

Ivana goes up from 528 to 412 in doubles. She's the 4th highest ranked Croat in doubles, but Mijacika is breathing down her neck at 414...
