Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla has qualified for this week's $10K in Mexico City. She only had to play one match, which she won 60 60.

In R1 of the MD she plays a Mexican, Arias-Rodriguez (#839; career-high #683). It's winnable as long as Ajla plays like she did last week.

By the way, Ajla wasn't the only Croat to qualify for the MD. So did Nikolina Grbac, an unranked 15-year-old. In R1 she plays Dominika Dieskova (SVK; #769; career-high #762; #8 seed).

Good luck to both Ajla and Nikolina.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla made it into the rankings for the first time this week. She's at #1004. With her single point from last week's $10K in Mexico City she'll move into the 900's next week.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla was on the show tennis channel academy today. She was hitting backhands, hers looks pretty good.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

My mistake....




..Karolina Sprem...
Ana Konjuh
..Ajla Tomljanovic...

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla is playing juniors this week, at the Dunlop Orange Bowl in Florida. She's the #4 seed and has won three matches to get into the QF. In R3 she beat Allie Will, who's #597 on the WTA rankings, in straights so that's a good result for Ajla.

It's quite a line-up in the QFs:

Ana BOGDAN (ROU) (1) Vs Sloane STEPHENS (USA)
Daria GAVRILOVA (RUS) Vs Christina MCHALE (USA)
Lauren EMBREE (USA) (11) Vs Ajla TOMLJANOVIC (CRO) (4)
Julia BOSERUP (USA) Vs Laura ROBSON (GBR) (2)

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla beat Bogdan in the final 36 64 76. Great win for Ajla! I wonder how high her junior ranking will be after this?
