Hey all!
She won Pivovarova 6-3, 6-2

She'll be having a new career high ranking now!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

petra got into the qualie draw in austria, but i'm guessing she will have to pull out (unless they delay her first round match till sunday and she loses tomorrow_
i'd rather just see her win zagreb

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Wow, *very* impressive. I didn't expect Petra to beat Panova (ranked #233) in R1 yet she won in straight sets. I definitely didn't expect her to beat Flipkens (#145; #5 seed) in R2 yet she won again in straights. And again, I didn't expect her to beat Pivovarova (#178) in the QFs yet she won easily, again in straights. Petra hasn't lost a set this week and all her matches have been against opponents ranked much higher!

Her next opponent, Jovanovic, has also been playing well this week (beat Mamic 61 63, then beat the #4 and #6 seeds) and also is ranked much higher than Petra (#272 vs #371). Still, Jovanovic is ranked lower than the other players Petra beat this week so if she plays well again she has a good chance to win.

Regardless of what happens tomorrow, this has been an excellent tournament for Petra. It's her best result ever (29 ranking points) and she will move into the top 300 for the first time (to around #285-290). Also, I'm really glad to see her regaining her form from late last year. This girl is good and seems to be the real thing but I was becoming concerned because she hadn't had great results this year.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Well done Petra

Now take care of Jovanovic so we can have an all-Croatian final

It was time for her to finally get some wins under her belt, cause this year wasn't very successful. Just hope she stays healthy, then everything else will fall into place.

Go Petra!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

i'm afraid that not even a win would get her in directly. she'd be around 230 if she wins it all

ugh, why do they all suck????????
