Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

yeah...i'm afraid darija isn't ranked high enough. certainly, darija can enter most wta events, but she's just not high enough to pull ajla in as well. i would love to see ajla and miki play together, but that a long shot.
i wonder if maybe ajla and stevens will play together some more

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

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

^^ Nice news, but they'll probably just show matches from two or three of the main courts, so who knows if it'll help us see some of our girls. Would be nice though.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

AO quali draw, R1: Tomljanovic vs. Molinero.

That's good news, she plays a 22 y.o. claycourter from Argentina who's never made it higher than #175 (or something like that) and is currently in the 180's. It's also a chance for revenge for a loss in their only previous meeting, in Spring of '09 (Osprey, clay), where Molinero won 7:6, 6:3.

The bad news for us Croatian fans is that all of our girls are in the same section of the draw, so unless one gets a LL spot only one of them will qualify. Ajla, for example, would in R2 play the winner of Brengle/(19)Martic

Good luck!

I'll be thrilled if just one of them qualifies!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Good luck to Ajla!

Didn't Molinero recently beat Grönefeld?

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

This match is pretty important for Ajla's ranking. She's defending 51 points next week, which is a good chunk of her ranking. Just one qualies win would give her 40 points, so beating Molinero would defend almost all her points.

Yeah, but somehow, I think Ajla still needs it more. Not saying I wouldn't be happy if Petra would win but still... Ajla needs this for more than just points, cause if she'd qualify, it'd be her GS MD debut! She also needs as much high-level match experience as possible.

Ajla won! She beat Molinero 61 76(1)!!!

I'm thrilled. At least one Croatian woman in the last round of qualies!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!


Finally a good scoreboard from Ajla, for the first time since American summer season. I want her to win now and make it to MD, it would be great for her confidence because she failed to qualify for WTA MD a lot of times(if not even every).
