Had to go away during the 4th game of the 2nd set and almost fainted upon return
WAY TO GO AJLA!!!!
Welcome back to top 200 (should be around 199)! Hopefully the career-high ranking (145) will fall in the not too distant future. Based on what she showed in this event, it's only a matter of time.
Next match will probably be another great experience for her regardless of the outcome, especially if she gets to play Bartoli. She is pretty solid lately, but her form has seen better days so an upset by Petkovic wouldn't surprise me too much honestly (I might be crazy, who knows).
But first things first, onto doubles later today. Good luck!
P. S. She has one semi-decent pile of points to defend by the end of the year, at the end of May, a 25k semi. Altogether she is defending just 61 point from last year (already at 80 in Miami alone, at 171 in 2013)
