She's defending only 21 point till the end of the year. I'm sorry but if she don't take advantage of that fact and a fact that she is playing constantly well, then she'll never be top 100 or top 50 player. And if we take in consider her talent than that's not highly possible.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Nice win. Flipkens has perfect game for grass... Her results on clay are not important for this match at all.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I was disappointed when I saw I would miss this streamed match (I seriously have been waiting forever to see how she plays), and for good reason.

Highlights here (http://t.co/sHWARU1mlB), but will a match replay be available anywhere?

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

"I think my serve was a big factor today," Tomljanovic said. "I was serving so well that I felt very comfortable on the return. I didn't feel much pressure and could maybe go for a little more with my returns.

"She was actually playing really well at the beginning, but my serve really helped me out and then I also got lucky on a few points here and there."

Last year, Tomljanovic, a former junior No.4, suffered two bouts of mononucleosis and elected to sit out virtually the entire second half of the season. It was not an easy decision, but one the 20-year-old believes is now paying dividends.

"Physically, I'm still not quite where I want to be yet," she added. "But I'm getting stronger with every tournament. It's a horrible illness and lots of players, like Mario Ancic, have been forced out of tennis because of it.

"I actually talked to Mario's brother and he said not to rush back. It ended up being my smartest decision to take the rest of the season off and just to prepare for 2013."

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Yesterday Ajla almost became Croatian #3 - Petra Martic struggled in her R1 match in a Nottingham challenger, and if she would've lost, Ajla would've taken her over in the rankings. Currently Ajla is 5 points behind, but if she somehow wins today and Petra doesn't tomorrow, they will swap places.

(Ajla currently 20 points behind Petra, earned 25 so far in Birmingham, another win would get her total to 40 points this week; Petra won 10 so far in Nottingham, another win would give her 18)

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Let me guess...it'll rain for the rest of the day and then tomorrow Ajla won't be on a show court Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I guess they would put first seed on CC even with that.
There are no Brits left and I'm sure she would play first match on CC tomorrow.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I doubt it, Flipkens is the top seed, don't believe that they're gonna move her from show court.
