Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Not sure she will play at all. Specially with her mono history. She needs to pick tournaments smart.

But she used SR so she might play.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

bouchard should be beatable. it's be a tough transition from these fast courts in midland though. i forgot she used an SR, she's pretty much forced to play then (although her singles ranking is getting much better, so hopefully she won't need all of her SRs).

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

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Awesome week for Ajla. She really and truly is back.

If she stays healthy, top 200 should happen very soon. She's only ~90 points away from #200 (by comparison, this week she has picked up 100 points) and is not defending any points until mid May and only 43 points until late Oct/early Nov.

For top 150, she needs ~240 points.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

a win tomorrow would give her 40 more points and put her in the top230 (i.e. high enough to play RG qualies)

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

Genie is not in the best form but she is more adjusted to clay at the moment than Ajla would be. Tough draw for both

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

puig just choked a big lead...6-1 4-2 to 6-1 4-6

i always thought ajla would at least be top100--that's the tennis she is showing right now. she'll need to work on the serve and forehand to consistently be in the top50 and higher

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

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Joined yesterday at 5:5 and delighted by what I saw! She is definately back, and I think it wouldn't be too much to say that she is playing better than ever. You guys say she was up 5:2 and then it went to 5:5 - well, Ajla 1.0 would've probably lost that set. She seems much more confident in her abilities than in the previous matches I saw her play (pre-mono), has a wonderful serve and backhand and she showed some pretty awesome passing shots too. With this she is pretty much secure for quali draws of remaining slams this year, which is wonderful!

Really looking forward to the finals!
