Looks like she's getting a hold of things - 2:2 in the 2nd set.

1:6, 4:6

Still, not a bad week for Ana at all, winning the doubles title and reaching the final in singles; well done Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana is playing in this week's $25K in California; she's seeded #6 in singles and #1 (with Coin) in doubles.

In R1 she beat Abaza (WC; #477) easily, 61 61. Likely very tough match in R2, though, against Marino (CH #38 but was out for 7 months last year)

Good luck!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana will play a qualifier Ishizu (c-h 218, current 371) against whom she never played and I'd really be beyond shocked if Ana would lose this one. Ishizu is a typical overranked Asian player who rarely plays a strong tournament outside of Asia and when she occasionally shows up on 25 and 50k's in Europe or America she usually loses R1 or R2.

In doubles Coin/Vrljic won R1 against Ejdesgaard/Lim 2 & 3. Next up Moore/South.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana is still in the States, after last week's appearance (sR1/dQF) in Rancho Santa Fe 25k this week she's playing in Surprise, Arizona also at a 25k. She is seeded #6 in singles and defeated her doubles partner Samantha Murray in R1 6:2, 6:4 to face the winner of Elie/(q) Higuchi next, while in doubles they're the top seeds and defeated Moore/South 6:3, 7:6. For a place in the semis they'll play the qualifiers Kuwata/Tanaka.

^ In R2, Ana beat Elie 46 61 62. In the QF she plays the #2 seed, Pavlovic. Good luck!

Ana and Murray (#1 seeds) lost in doubles QF surprisingly easily to a pair of Q's, 26 26

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

I really hope that we will see Ana in RG qualifications . . . three weeks until cut off deadline and she is about 30-40 points away. Definitely doable

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

I just noticed that, very surprisingly, Ana is #121 in the WTA Championships race rankings

Yes that is somewhat odd, since she hasn't done much this year (apart from one 25k final), but the season is still young and after RG, and especially Wimbledon things will probably (unfortunatelly) work themselves out.

Ana also has another $25K final last November (the race starts after the previous year's WTA Championships, so it includes November and December). She also has a $25K QF, a $15K SF and a few other scattered results.

But, yes, as the season unfolds, I imagine Ana's race ranking will drop, maybe even out of the top 200.
