Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread
Ivana definately got VERY lucky with the draw, now it's only a question if she's ready to make the most of it. If she is not, then she should seriously consider retirement, cause this girl is 16 y.o., unranked wild-card entry (as mentioned) and making her grand slam debut. Ivana has to get out there with a clear mission of resolving this quickly and easily, there's no alternative. She should dictate the game from the first point and give no place to question of who is in charge on the court. Her lack of match-play is no excuse in this match, cause Austin last played a competitive pro match back in February. Not to mention that she's played a total of 10 professional events in her whole career and that she's never beaten someone ranked higher than #573.
Go get it Ivana!
