No--it's much better than that! She's up to a career-high #6(!) in this week's rankings: www.itftennis.com/juniors.

That puts her in the company of the Bogdan sisters, Halep, Robson, Ouden and Jovanovski among the world's top ten juniors

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Just hope that she'll have more remarkable senior career than other our former Top10 juniors (Lucic, Abramovic, Mezak, Kostanic )

Ajla

Without a doubt. Absolutely. No other country comes even close.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

It looks like her schedule will be:

Boca 25K
Nottinghill G1 Juniors
Australian Open Juniors

Good Luck Ajla!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Boca is plyed on clay and looks like her best surface is hard so we will see what will she do there.
GL to ajla on next tournaments!

Well, there are about 15 Americans in front of her in quali list, so I doubt it. Besides, at this point I'm not sure she would benefit from a MD WC. It's better that she plays a few matches against lower ranked players first IMO.

EDIT: As expected, only American's got WC's, both for qualies and main draw. One with an even lower ranking than Ajla received one of the WCM's!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Qualie draw for Boca Raton is out!
Ajla will possibly play two matches today!
In first round her opponent is Anna Livadaru, unranked German.

Winner of this match plays against Romana Tedjakusuma, 4th seeded Indonesian or Jasmina Tinjic.

Not a great draw, but lets hope there will be Croatian battle!

Good luck to both!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Any tour experience is good for Ajla at this point. Rankings are really secondary issue here. But she does have a chance for a win here, cause German is a year older than Ajla, but still without a ranking. And also, her favorite surface is carpet so she probably won't manage very well on clay. But let's wait and see.

Good luck Ajla!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Tedjakusuma isn't exactly a push over...and it was a routine scoreline
evitmova next though...that will be tougher

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