Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Good and bad news!
She beat Evtimova, don't know score yet!

But in main draw she is playing against first seed Angela Haynes!

Angela HAYNES (USA) (1) Vs Ajla TOMLJANOVIC (CRO)

Good luck!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Great job Ajla!
But this draw is just ahhh...
Well, I hope she will gain some experience and see how ''big girls'' play.
Hope she will take more games than in Zagreb Challenger.
GL Ajla!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

ajla is winning these close matches is it possible there is a mentally tough croat out there? it's hard not to get overly excited about her, she could be a great player one day

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

I agree, but we shouldn't build expectations based on one tournament. We've done it before and look how some of those turned out People should just let her play and get into the game in as normal way as possible. In one last year's article she said her plans for 2009 are to play major junior events and a few pro ones, just to gain some solid foundation for her career (well, not in those exact words but...). I really don't wait for her results with that nervous anticipation I used to have about some of the other girls - just, whatever happens is nice, she's building her game and a name for herself. Nothing more, nothing less, this season is all about that. BTW, she comes from a sporting family, so maybe that's where she got those "nerves of steel" (father was a member of a national handball team).

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

second match on center court. i'll call pretending to work for one of the newspapers there (apparently, a woman working at the club didn't give a wtaworld member the scores because he wasn't with a newspapaer )

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

This is really almost incredible result.
yes, I too hope that haynes didn't pull out - but even if she did pull out, this is great opportunity for Ajla to improve her ranking.
El Tabakh is much more higher in rankings than Ajla, but if she won against Haynes...

Bravo Ajla!!!

How many points she earned?
