Re: Marija Abramovic
The good news for Marija is that she got a QWC for this week's $75K+H in Lebanon.
The bad news is that she lost in the final round of qualifying.
The good news is that she got into the MD as a LL.
The bad news is that in R1 she plays the #3 seed, Akgul Amanmuradova. No chance for Marija, I'm afraid.
QR1: def. Elen Chelidze (RUS) 60 61
QR2: def. (8)Cristina Stancu (ROU) 36 64 62
QR3: lost to (2)Michaela Pochabova (SVK) 75 61
MR1: v. (3)Akgul Amanmuradova (UZB)
PS: It looks like her older sister, Ivana, who hasn't played since Oct. 2007, is also attempting a comeback. She was on the alternates list at the same tournament but too far down the list to make it into the qualies.
