Re: Marija Abramovic

Maria and partner lost in R2 of doubles at Toronto, but she won in R1 of singles:

Maria ABRAMOVIC (CRO) defeated Elisabeth ABANDA (CAN) 6-4 6-3

This is her first MD win at a tournament greater than $25K since May 2008

In R2 she plays the #8 seed, Rampre. Maria has been playing well so I think she has a chance. Good luck!

Re: Marija Abramovic

Nice move up in the rankings for Maria this week, from 385 to 349. And she's not defending serious points until July so hopefully she can break back into the top 300.

Re: Marija Abramovic

I wonder why Maria is not playing doubles at Midland. She couldn't have expected to get far in singles qualies (she lost in QR1) and her ranking is good enough that she should have been able to find plenty of partners to get into the doubles MD directly.

Re: Marija Abramovic

Maria's on the qualies entry list for Bogota, starting this weekend. It would be her first WTA tournament since Feb. 2007--five years!

Re: Marija Abramovic

M Abramovic d A Kremer 62 64

This is Maria's first WTA-level win in almost exactly five years. She must be very happy today!

In QR2 she should be playing the #8 seed, Kolar (#245). Instead she plays Hermoso, who happens to be the last direct acceptance (#409) and who needed three close sets to beat Kolar, 64 57 76(4). Hopefully she'll be tired and Maria can take advantage of it

Re: Marija Abramovic

Maria's playing her QR2 match right now. She lost the first set 36 but won the second 62. Hermoso just held serve to open the third set.

Ajmo Maria!

Re: Marija Abramovic

Btw, Maria/Pelletier are #4 seed in doubles. It's exciting to see her seeded in doubles in a WTA main draw! It's a nice concrete sign of all her hard work paying off.

Unfortunately they did not get an easy draw. In R1 they play BABOS/SAVINYKH, who are the highest-ranked non-seeded team. They're just behind Maria/Pelletier in their combined ranking.
