Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Tomljanovic def. Oudin 6:3 6:1, unbelievable, at 3:2 it looked like it's gonna be a tight match, then 9 games in a row... I didn't watch the match on stream, only livescore, was it all about Ajla, or Melanie just crumbled? All in all, congrats Ajla

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

It was all about Ajla, this was by far the best match I ever saw her playing. Serve was fantastic, backhand was excellent, she totally outpowered poor Oudin.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

She was number one among her generation on pro tour rankings 3 years ago and then got sick. There is no reason to not become number one again and make top 10. People forgeting she didn't play last 3 years.

Oudin was terrible and Ajla made just couple of errors. Oudin played great only game she won in the 2nd set.

Thanks vladek, that makes this win even bigger, Ajla has more MD wins in Wta tournaments this year than Donna

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Great controled play by Ajla.
Shame she is in this section of the draw and facing first seed in next round.
Good luck!

I firmly believe that Ajla will beat Flipkens if she can repeat today's high level

Really good performance.

btw. I expected that Ajla will be more on the net but she rarely went on it. She will have to do it lot more against Flipkens.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

A really wonderful performance today by Ajla, well done! She was in control for the greatest part of the match and, what's even more important, focused on the match instead of thinking about the opponent and letting her mind possibly get in the way. Of course, we have to be fair and admit that Oudin helped a lot, as she is totally out of form at the moment and not even resembling her old self from a few years ago. All in all, a valuable WTA win for Ajla, and a huge challenge coming up in the next round.

Flipkens will be considerably more consistent and dangerous than Oudin, eventhough she is not in the best of forms either, but still she is a class above either Oudin or Tomljanovic. Not to mention that she Loves grass (the capital letter is not a mistake) and has the game well suited for it. Oh and did we mention that she is one of the fastest rising players in terms of ranking for the past year or so - definately a huge task ahead of Ajla.

With a performance like today she can certainly do damage, but I still don't see her through the next one. Hope I'm wrong, of course. With another win she'd ensure herself a new c-h ranking, although I'd say she's already done a pretty awesome job this week.

Best of luck in the next one girl!

Good point there Although jokes aside, it's really frustrating having so many players who feel (and play) great on grass, yet this grasscourt season is so freakin' short...

Great victory for Ajla. I would be very disappointed if she don't enter top 100 at least this year. Maybe top 80.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

one step at a time. she's never qualified for the main draw of a slam, but i think she'll be the favorite in her section at this point

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