Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Nice start of the main draw

Next she plays another qualifier, Allie Will, who took out the 4th seed Floris in the opening round and did so convincingly (2 & 3). Will is also a qualifier in doubles, where she's already reached the QF, so she had quite a few matches already this week - which can be both a good and a bad thing. Her c-h ranking suggests that she is in a whole other category compared to Ajla (never seriously stepped into the 300's), but she had some decent results last year; for instance in September she took out Gallovits-Hall in a 75k and before that played the final in a 25k.

They played eachother once (Ajla is 2 years younger), 5 years ago in Orange Bowl - so on a different surface - and Ajla won in straights. Hope she can do it again.

Good luck!

If she won, she doesn't need to play q for next week 25k.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Impressive scoreline!

Ajla has lost only 4 games in two MD matches, the fewest of any of the QFs

Her next opponent, Ianchuk, is the third lowest ranked player in the QF, so it's a good chance for Ajla to reach the SF.

Good luck!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Great to see her so sharp in her 5th match of the week; great job Ajla!

I expect the next round to be about as easy as this one, which would be very helpful because of an SR (as mentioned earlier by juan pablo), but let's not be too confident cause this girl did manage to beat some solid players last year (Tabak, Zec-Peskiric...).

Keep it going Ajla!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

For some reason my posts in this and Tereza's thread made this morning have both disapppeared...anyone messing with me?

Anyway, thrilled to see how fresh Ajla seems even in her 5th match of the week and hope she can keep it going, cause this next match seems like a really nice chance to save herself from having to qualify next week.

Ajmo Ajla

Bogota stronger than ever with Jankovic, Penneta, Schiavone and some other great players. But yes, it's a good decision. I just hope that she doesn't waste her SR because she not in MD, and she would probably get in Q-draw with her current ranking as well.
So I hope she used SR for MD and is gonna use current ranking for Q-list.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla is in semis

(Q)Ajla Tomljanovic (CRO) d. (wc)Elizaveta Ianchuk (UKR) 46 64 61

Next opponent is either Eikeri or Schaefer(8)

This means huge jump in raknings, from No.504 to No. 423. Final would bring her to about No.394 and title No. 372
