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!
