Unbelievable! This girl is on fire.

And such a battle! Ajla appears to have solid nerves, which is such a rarity among Croatian players.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I wonder if she'll still play next week in Lutz, after so many matches this week.

She's still on the entry list and would get a SE into the MD.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

^ Hope so! It would be a shame to waste an SE.

One more thing: With this latest win, Ajla moves up to ~270. She moves past Mrdeza to become #6 among Croatian women. She's only 20 or so points behind Lucic and Mijacika, so she could easily become #4 (still some ways behind Lisjak and, of course, Sprem and Martic).

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Another finals

Whatever happens next, it's a great tournament, but it would be so great if she would get her first title here. It also wouldn't be good if she'd develop this habit of losing in the finals, which could prove to be costly in the future. What a start of the year this is, congratulations!

Let's go Ajla, get it all

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

i never thought she would win so easily what an awesome week for ajla! 51 ranking points and a 7-0 start to 2010! till the RG qualies list comes out, she only has the IW first round, 1 25K QF, and 1 25K second round to defend. she's up to 261 and needs about 60 more points to make qualies

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

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

bravo ajla, great staff!!!
it is interesting one thing. she played tournament in zagreb in may last year, after that she had delay to the very end of september and won 144 (overall she has only 40 points more with today's win) points from just 6 tournaments. amazing. it's obvious she trained hard in that off period and because of that she has that great results.
and one more thing. it's interesting she has better result in last 6 tournaments from all of her generation !!! but we really really shouldn't compare her with anybody. she doesn't need that pressure.

croat

8 in a row

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Wow, I can't believe she won--and so easily! So many good things out of this tournament:

First professional title
Most points won from a single tournament
Eight wins in a row
Wins over three top-200 players (the #2, #3 and #4 seeds)
New career-high ranking, for the first time in the top 300

There are only two players who are younger than Ajla who are ranked higher: Kristina Mladenovic (#201; younger by one week) and Zarina Diyas (#244). Impressive!
