Never mind: Austin is not even ranked!

But then I remembered Lisjak isn't ranked either!

When was the last time two unranked players played in a GS event?!?

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!

At least she managed to hold serve at the start of 3rd set.

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

She was always such a huge choker, but I didn't thougt she couldn't handle some girl that's unranked and can't win 2 matches in 10k's. Please never play pro match again!

She just was reminded why she retired in first place.
No serve at all, no brain.

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

She lost? Jesus Christ

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

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

I don't know how this girl plays but I really doubt she has big game when she needs 3rd set tie break to win 1st round of Q-draw at 10k.
But she wasn't even on fire, she had 18 DF's! 18, unranked and Ivana can't win!
How the hell has she won 8 games vs. Casey?
