Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Tomljanovic def. Puchkova 6-4 6-4

That was an unusually straight-forward win for Ajla. She only faced one break point, and that was when she served for the match (expected ).

I now feel that I can take the next step in my support for Ajla, as that was the first complete match that I've watched.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Good star, but draw isn't eady at all.
Friesdam's in good form.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Friedsam will certainly be a challenge for Ajla. She's got a 15k, a 25k and two 50k titles this year (not sure about doubles), and two of those - a 25k and a 50k - came in consecutive weeks just over a month ago. In her last 4 tournaments her singles w/l ratio is 16:2. Definately not something to be taken lightly.

The match is scheduled for tomorrow around 6 AM CET and there will be no stream.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Plus, she def. Piter who's also in form of her life.
Ajla's draw is as tough as it gets... Lower half is stronger

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

A fun fact: Tomljanovic never played Friedsam on either the pro or the junior circuit eventhough they're just a year apart.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Lost to Friedsam 4 & 4, not exactly a surprise, and judging by the stats it was a comfortable win for the German - her 1st serve % was at 68, Ajla won points off of just 29% of those serves by Friedsam and ALF also won 12 points more in total. That's quite a few for a seemingly close scoreline.

Anyway, good luck in Taipei Ajla.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Taipei draw, singles & doubles R1:

Van Uytvanck v Puchkova
Kudryavtseva v Tomljanovic

Raina/Tomljanovic v Chan/Chan


A very nice singles draw, Ajla has a positive h2h against all of the potential opponents for the first two rounds, and a horrible dobules draw (Chan/Chan are the 2nd seeds). Overall I'm OK with this.


Good luck Ajla
