Re: Silvia Njiric

CONGRATS

She's in the QF of a slam for the first time, after losing in R3 in Melbourne this year, and R2 in New York last year. Hope she doesen't stop here.

Re: Silvia Njiric

Silvia lost in the QFs to Noppawan Lertcheewakarn, 64 64. It's nothing to be ashamed of--in fact, it's a very encouraging performance: Lertcheewakarn was the #1 junior in the world last year; she was RU at Wimbledon last year; Silvia is a year and a half younger; and she kept the score pretty close.

I think we can expect great things from Silvia in the future!

Re: Silvia Njiric

Silvia is back in action at Velenje 10k. She's the 3rd seed of qualies and plays an unranked Hungarian Kovacs in QR1, who is almost twice her age - should be entertaining Anyway, hope she goes deep into the MD here.

Re: Silvia Njiric

Krisztina KOVACS HUN d. (3) Silvia NJIRIC CRO 36 61 61

I'll just say that according the itf website, Kovacs is 30 years old, she doesent have a ranking nor she ever had one. Silvia

Re: Silvia Njiric

Silvia is playing in the Orange Bowl this week. She's the #4 seed and in R1 plays against Sina Haas.

Good luck, Silvia!

Re: Silvia Njiric

I'm becoming more and more interested in Silvia. Can anyone help me out though with how to pronounce her surname?

Thanks!

Re: Silvia Njiric

she won 3 and 0. hopefully a sign she is regaining some form

njiric is pronounced gn (like in gniocchi) - ee - ree - ch (soft)
the stress is on the first ee. the ee sounds a slightly shorter than they are in english.

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

Re: Silvia Njiric

Nice start! Hope she justifies the role of one of the favorites here, it's a huge event and a good result could be very helpful for her career.
