Re: Silvia Njiric

not sure how much you know about Pradova, but honestly she is an awful player, she bought a wilcard into a 100k tournament last year, and draw got her German bagel girl Gesa Focke who of course also bought one WC .. and thats how she got her ranking "up" .. win is a win for Silvia, but against Pradova doesnt mean much ... btw. she lost to Honcova next round ..

Re: Silvia Njiric

^ Good background info. It's good that Silvia picked up 8 points but her transition to the pros has been hugely disappointing. She's clearly talented, and is still young, so hopefully she'll snap out of it at some point.

Re: Silvia Njiric

$10K Heraklion, R16

Silvia NJIRIC (CRO) [7] 3-6 6-3 6-3 Natalia SIEDLISKA (POL)

A win is a win--and Silvia needs as many as she can get--but she shouldn't be losing a set to a player ranked in the 900s

In the QF she should be playing the top seed, Balducci (#441). Instead, she'll be playing Sakkari (#695), who beat Balducci.

Good luck, Silvia!

Re: Silvia Njiric

$10K Heraklion, QF

Silvia NJIRIC (CRO) [7] 4-6 6-1 6-4 Maria SAKKARI (GRE)

In the SF she plays unseeded Savoretti (#992 but CH 659).

This is a good opportunity for Silvia. Good luck!

Re: Silvia Njiric

She won the final 6-3 6-4 against Curovic
Is this her first title?

Re: Silvia Njiric

Well tournament is played on carpet, and Silvia has been training with Saša Hirszon ( ex. K. Šprem coach ) = she is bashing every ball, this week they were going in ...
She is also in Greece for the next tournament and plays a Greek wildcard in round 1 ... she is supposed to meet Curovic in quarters again .. although I think she is not going to make it 2 out of 2 ..

Re: Silvia Njiric

Excellent news! This is Silvia's second professional title (also won a $10K in Algeria in October 2010).

Silvia is clearly very talented--she was #6 in juniors, after all. She has had a rough transition into the pros--probably wasn't able to handle the pressure or adjust to the style of play. She needs all the self-believe she can get. Hopefully this title will boost her confidence. She's still young (18), so she has time to build a successful career.

In this week's rankings she moved up from 618 to 588. Once these points are counted she'll move up to ~520-525.

That is just short of her CH ranking (#514). Since she's playing these next few weeks, and is not defending points for another month, she should be able to get a new CH ranking and break into the top 500.

Good luck, Silvia!

I too would be surprised if she wins the title again, but she's got a good draw. Local WC Vogasari (#901) in R32. If she wins, she'll likely get the #8 seed Parrizas-Diaz (#573), who lost in R16 this past week. And in the QF, it would likely be Curovic again.

After this week, a QF finish would be disappointing but a SF would be good.

Good luck, Silvia!
