Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Lost the doubles against the top seeds 13-11 in the STB, after winning the first and getting bageled in the second set - that must've hurt

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Jumps a bit in the rankings this week, from 224 to 213, not too much, but valuable nonetheless.

This week she is in Istanbul for a 50k, directly in the main draw and this week decides her fate in terms of RG. She is defending a semifinal here (32 points) and in case of an early loss her ranking next week will be in the 230's and I'm pretty sure that won't be enough. Incidentally next week's ranking makes the cut-off for RG qualies.

Lots of at stake, good luck Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Want the good news or the bad one first? OK, let's start with bad...

Istanbul 50k, singles R1 draw:

A. Vrljic vs. [4]P. Kania

And now the good...

Vrljic leads h2h 1:0 with a win from 2011 Opole 25k when she won 6:3, 2:6, 7:6 to take the title at this indoor event.

OK, a win in the tie-break of the final set isn't exactly encouraging, and this is not an indoor event, but still...one can hope.


Good luck Ana!

Will play doubles R1 with Sirotkina later today against Fomina/Shakovets.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

As expected, Ana's new ranking is outside of 230 by one spot - doubt that'll be enough to take her to Paris.

[6]A. Vrljic def. (WC)Y. Elmi 6:1, 6:1

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

And an equally expected defeat in R2 to world's #418 - clay after all, doesn't really bring the best from Ana's game.

(Q) K. Von Deichman def. [6] A. Vrljic 6:4, 1:6, 5:7

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Next, Ana will try her luck in Prague where she is in the quali draw for 100+H.

Unfortunately she wasn't exactly lucky with the draw, as in the QR1 she'll face the 5th seed Madison Brengle. They've played only once before, in the Nottingham challenger last year and the American won 6:4, 6:2.

Match is scheduled for today around 4 PM CET. Good luck Ana

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

3:1* - nice rebound, but it could've been 4:0 with serve (just got broken).

Keep it going Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

If it's any consolation, her doubles ranking took a turn for the better this week, from 175 to 163 - not that far from her best ever #149.
