Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

It'll be tough against a former top50 and current #130, but Yakimova lost several times this year to girls outside of top200 (one of those times being just last week) so she can be quite inconsistent. If Ana plays her best she might have a shot here, and even if she loses, there's still a chance for a LL spot.

P. S. For those of you who can watch it, SLO2 is starting the coverage of Portoroz as of tomorrow, 18h CET.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

It was close for the first two sets (6:3, 6:7), but looks like Ana ran out of ideas or out of steam then (1:6). Too bad So close to another tour-level main draw.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana is the 4th seed of Hechingen 25k and is playing a local wild-card Perkovic in R1. She's also in doubles draw, teamed up with Harmsen and they play the 2nd seeds Schruff/Sema in R1.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

^ Ana VRLJIC (CRO) (4) defeated Korina PERKOVIC (GER) 7-6(2) 2-6 7-5

Way too close for comfort, especially against a players ranked in the high 500s.
In R2 Ana plays Katarzyna PITER (#256).

Ana is defending QF points from the same tournament last year so she needs to win two more matches to pick up extra points. If she does that, though, she'll likely move into the top 200. Good luck, Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

This got me thinking - she's playing a claycourt challenger in Europe some two weeks before the start of USO qualies...does she even plan to travel to the States...

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She retired in R2 against Piter at 2:6, 0:3 Hope it's not serious.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She's not in the draw of Versmold 25k, and she should've been seeded there. Hope the reason is because she's traveling to the States, but somehow I doubt that's it.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

A tough job is ahead of Ana, cause she's playing Namigata in QR1 of US Open. Namigata is the favorite in terms of rankings, but Ana won their only previous match, in qualies of Bronx 50k, two years ago (3 sets). But Namigata is in much better form now then back in '08, so I expect this to be challenging (she reached QF of a 50k last month, QR3 in Wimbledon etc.)

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

BTW, her ranking slipped a bit this week, from 213 to 224 - hope that changes after USO.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana has just won the first set against Namigata but it wasn't easy: 76(6).

C'mon, Ana, just one more set/six games/24 points!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana just saved a set point to break Namigata and even the second set at 55. Well done, Ana!

And with that, play has been suspended.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Thanks for the pics!

I hope Ana will take advantage of this delay, work out a plan with her coach and finish the job in straights today. She's in a really nice form and it would be a waste if she wouldn't use that to pick up quite a few worthy points.

Ugh--Ana lost, 76(6) 57 46. I can't believe she couldn't pull it off. Huge missed opportunity.
