One more thing, next week tournament is on clay, transition from hard surface to clay is always tough.

In addition to exhaustion and the transition to clay, Jelena might also have to deal with a much tougher draw next week.

Not to take anything away from her amazing accomplishment but she had a fairly easy route to the title this week. As ma re said, she played against only one seeded player--and it was the #9 seed at that.

Next week she could meet Sacha Jones (#3 seed; world #183 and CH #150) as early as R2. One very encouraging sign is that Sanders beat Jones in Ipswich before losing to Jelena a few rounds later. On the other hand, Jones might be extra motivated to not lose in the early rounds again.

We'll find out how Jelena does soon enough. Good luck, Jelena!

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

Jelena has been absent for a long time and IMO she will get/or she already is very tired. I expect exit in second or third round, but I wouldn't be unhappy if Jelena disapproves me

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

If my data is correct (Singles titles of Cro girls since '00) this is her first singles title above a 10k level

Given her quality I find that stat shocking!

Yes, that one is from one of her three million previous comebacks Jokes aside, she is an excellent doubles player (OK, maybe not excellent, but certainly very good) and I'm sure we'll see her in doubles matches very soon.

Shuko Aoyama (JPN) d. (SE)Jelena Pandzic (CRO) 61 62

Who would have predicted that two days after winning the biggest title of her career, she would lose 1 and 2 in R1?

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

Maybe she just was too tiered after 8 matches last week and didn't adapt well after travel. It is a shame she couldn't win at least one match and get 8 pts but it is ok.

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

As expected, huge move up in the rankings this week from Jelena: from 633 to 404

Too bad, though, that she didn't win her R1 match last week. That would have bumped her into the 300s.

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

She'd need some serious luck to make it into Wimbledon qualies this year, but USO is more than doable for a player of her abilities.
