Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Hope it's nothing serious, as this sounds quite a bit unlike Ana, especially with the form she's been having to lean on recently.

Yup, and she should pair up with Jurak.

I'm not so sure. Her CH dubs ranking is 149--and she's already 29...

But she has achieved it thanks to challenger (and not consistent play even there). Not to mention mostly she plays 25k or 50k challengers. So, actually that is pretty great for level she is competing.

This. One win at WTA tournaments in doubles is 60 points in MM's, over a 100 in Premier and GS events. On the other hand, on challengers you earn those points for tournament win. So it's almost impossible to get higher in doubles by playing challengers only. ALso I think for doubles ranking they count 10 best tournaments (point wise) so being #150 with challengers only is as good as you can be.

I mean, she's not getting any younger and she's stuck at this level for years now. If I was her I would like to try the taste of real tour(even if in doubles only).

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Shame she lost doubles QF by two points in the decider, but a really great result in singles! Keep it going Ana

Very nice win

In the QF she plays van der Meet (#327; CH #228), who beat the #8 seed, Ozgen.

A nice chance for the SF. Of course, whether Ana takes advantage of it is a whole 'nother matter.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She won!

A. Vrljic def. A. van der Meet 7:6, 6:3

Semifinals:

[1] Bychkova vs. [4] Voracova
[6] Parmentier vs. Vrljic

Parmentier won their only previous meeting, 2 weeks ago in R2 of Grenoble (25k), it was 7:6, 6:7, 6:3. Parmentier is, of course, former world's #40.

Good luck Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

A bit of luck for Ana at the start of a 25k in Preston (UK), she is through to the 2nd round after the 4th seeded Birnerova retired against her today at 5-0 in the first set. She will next play the winner of Kerkhove vs. Hesse, both of which are qualifiers.

Ana is also in the doubles draw here, teamed up with Sadikovic. Later today they'll play their R1 match against Moore/Sirotkina.

In singles, she is not defending anything serious for another month and a half, and for about a month in doubles.
