Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

It's still very, very early in her career, but I wanted to start a cheering thread for young Croatian player Ema Mikulcic. She recently turned 16 years old (born in April 1992).

The reason I'm starting a thread for her now is because she'll be entering the rankings for the first time the week after Wimbledon. In April she won her first-round MD match at the $10K in Hvar. In May she did the same thing at the $10K in Mostar. This week she qualified for the $10K in Sarajevo and has won her first-round MD match. That means she now has ranking points from three tournaments, which is the minimum necessary to be ranked. She only has three points (one from each tournament) so she'll enter at the very bottom of the rankings, around #1050. Still, it's a promising start.

Let's wish young Ema good luck in her career!

Re: Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

Well, Ema hasn't done much in the past 2.5 years but today at a $10K in France she beat the #3 seed, Honcova (#339), in R1!

Re: Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

$10,000 Macon, QF: Ema MIKULCIC (CRO) defeated Celine GHESQUIERE (FRA) 6-3 7-6(6)

Ema will move up to a new CH ranking of ~720 (currently 797).

Next match is against the #2 seed, Gatto-Monticone (#289). I'll be shocked if Ema wins, but this was still a very good week for her, reaching the SF and picking up 6 points.

In her only two tournaments this year so far she has earned as many points (14) as she did all last year in 9 tournaments.

Re: Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

Btw, Ema is on the Q entry list for next week's $10K in France. By reaching the SF at Macon this week, she'll get a SE into the MD.

Re: Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

Ema got crushed in the final by Zanevska. Still, a very good for her. Good luck next week also!

Re: Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

Ema got a SE into the MD at Bron next week. In R1 she plays a WC, Alix COLLOMBON (#820).

R1 is winnable. Unfortunately in R2 she'll likely get Zanevska, who destroyed Ema in today's Macon final 61 62.

$10,000 Bron, R1: Ema MIKULCIC (CRO) defeated Alix COLLOMBON (FRA) 6-4 4-6 6-4

Another ranking point for Ema.

Next is a lucky loser, Oceane DODIN, who beat the #4 seed, PAPAMICHAIL. Good opportunity for Ema to reach her second QF in a row and pick up 4 points.

$10,000 Bron, R2: (LL)Oceane Dodin (FRA) d. (SE)Ema Mikulcic (CRO) 63 63

Disappointing that Ema would lose to an LL after beating the #2 seed last week--but that's what happens sometimes. Better luck next time.

Re: Ema Mikulcic cheering thread

Ema takes a big, nicely round jump up in the rankings: up 100 spots, from #800 to #700

It's a new CH ranking for her. Congrats!
