Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I'm in contact with the tournament director now I e-mailed him today for scores, but he didn't get to his computer till a while ago. He says that Ajla's match might be on radiotennis.com tomorrow! Really hope it is!

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

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I thought making it to MD on this kind of tournament is big enough, but THIS?!!!! I'm in a complete shock! Finally some good news from our girls. Of course, rankings are not the issue at this stage of her career, but it'll sure help her to make this kind of a jump. I also think tournament directors would be insane not to award this with at least one wild card (at least WCQ), cause even with this jump her ranking will still be pretty low for most tournaments. I know we shouldn't expect anything more from her, but next opponent seems like someone she could take out, considering whom she beat so far. But whatever happens, big congrats on this tourney!

Good luck!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla is on the entry list for the 25K in Burnie, Australia - the week after the AO she's still quite far from making the qualies cut, but should make it after withdrawls

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Anyone here has a chance to go watch her play on some of these tournaments? It'd be good to know what's her style of play.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

she lost 6-1 4-6 3-6 looks like she ran out of steam. great week...probably for the best that she's out cause she has to get ready for AO juniors, that is more important

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Lost in the first round of AO in straight sets, after being placed as 6th seed Still to play doubles, but I was really hoping for some nice singles result here.
