Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla's first match is tomorrow, 3rd on CC and it should start around 5:30 AM CET. Same as was the case with Nanjing e-tennis.tv is providing the streaming.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Lost the first set 16

But won the second 63

They're tied 11 in the third. Why do I have the feeling this isn't going to end well?

I think it's better just to turn off Ajla's match if it goes to a third set...

No lead is safe for Ajla.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ugh, bad way to finish season, but overall I think that we can be very satisfied with Ajla this year. Of course that it could have been better, but when you consider all her problems last year, this is really big. Who would have thought that Ajla will be our best player on the end of 2013. when she was ranked outside TOP 500 in January 2013.?

Get some rest girl, then hit the training courts and visit some top class sport psychologist

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

10-11 this year in three set matches. Not good.

Correction, it's 11-12, but out of 22 times she lost this year, 12 times was in 3 sets, which is probably why her 3-set stats seem worse than they are.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

It's also worth noting (for future reference maybe) that out of the 12 three set losses, 4 came after winning the first set and 8 after recovering in a match in which she lost the opening set. Can't decide which scenario I prefer more...

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I'm starting to think that Ajla is a big choker. I know that's harsh, but it's kind of true.

If this trend continues on the main tour, I'm not sure if I can continue supporting her along with Donna and Ana.

I've already had enough headcases to deal with in my time of watching tennis on both tours.

It is simple and big true. Unfortunately. End of any discussion. She needs psychologist.
