This is a great win!
i still think she needs to seriously work with a shrink. she can't always be 5-0 up and count on being able to lose 2 games before closing a set.
Still proud of her for closing it out after the hick up.
Well, earlier today I was really busy with all kinds of different things to do, so I forgot to even check the scores from Miami. Talk about a surprise when I logged on to FB and saw this news posted by Croatian tennis group! I was shocked to say the least!
Don't mean no disrespect towards Ajla, but her recent performances really didn't give me much hope she can make an upset here. Not to mention that Pervak had some pretty amazing performances since her last match with Ajla and is a type of player that can burst at any moment, against any opponent. I really didn't give Ajla much of a chance today. Mea culpa, talk about a laps in judgement.
To say that this is a pleasant surprise would be an understatement, and I'm definately thrilled for Ajla today. She proved once more to herself, and everyone else, that she can play some pretty great tennis and make some really solid results on the Tour. Next round against Goerges will certainly be a challenge, but at least she can get out there and have fun. Goerges is not in that situation and she has the pressure of making a (comfortable) win, so who knows, maybe Ajla intends to continue with surprises. But however it ends, this was an awesome week for Ajla and she'll deservedly make a huge jump up the rankings once Miami is over.
