Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

In the QF, Jelena should be playing the top seed, Erika Sema (176, CH 114). Instead, she'll play Naomi Osaka, who beat Sema.

Osaka is a 15-yo old qualifier ranked 792. She's obviously good and very promising but this is still an excellent chance for Jelena to make the SF.

Good luck!

WTF is this now, Jelena losing 6:0 2:0 to a 15 years old girl i never heard of before yesterday. I mean what are we looking at here, a supreme ruler of the WTA for the next 15 years.

And there we were all talking about Konjuh, Bencic,Townsend, Siniakova, Kontaveit, Tornado, and a few others as the best prospects and no one even mentioned Steffi Osaka.

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

This girl seems promissing, already played some competitive matches against solid WTA players (Puig, Mayr), but of course her form varies greatly (last week she lost R1 of a 10k to #500-something in straights). She also never played juniors, while there is someone a year older named Mari Osaka, still without junior ranking (sister, possibly?). Great talents sometimes fly under the radar (away from junior tennis) as was the case with Williams sisters. OK, let's not jump to conclusions, but this kid definately looks like someone worth paying attention to.

Tough luck Jele

Re: Jelena Pandzic Cheering Thread!!

Ugh, for the second week in a row, Jelena missed being seeded by *one* spot. Last week in El Paso the #8 seed was ranked 341 and Jelena 347. This week in Las Cruces the #8 seed is ranked 338 and Jelena 344. Aarghh--so frustrating.

In R1 she gets a WC, Pluskota (#515). In R2 it'll probably be the top seed, E. Sema (#176)

Good luck, Jelena!

^ Beat Pluskota 62 76(1)

She'll move up to ~315-320

About 18 points away from top 300
