Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She keeps on losing to everybody these days. In R1 of Grado 25k, where she's defending SF, she lost to a qualifier (Pliskova, #579) in straight sets. Hard to believe that less than a year ago she was at a career-high ranking of 191. Now she'll drop outside of top300

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana scored a surprising win in R1 of Portoroz qualies; she beat the #6 seed, Ekaterina Ivanova 75 26 76 (#156, career-high #142). This is her best win in a looong time.

In R2 she plays Arina Rodionova (#261, career-high #240). Good luck!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She won QR2, tougher than I expected (3:6 6:2 6:1), but a win is a win. This time last year she played some 75k where she got to R2, so she's defended that now, anything else is a plus.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana is playing in this week's $25 in Hechingen (GER). The bad news is that in R1 she played the #1 seed, Kucova. The good news (for Ana) is that she won when Kucova retired: 62 30 ret.

In R2 Ana plays Justine Ozga.

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

It's lucky for her, but her form is also on the rise in the past month or so. She didn't have much of a season this year, with just a few solid results on challengers and a 6 match losing streak between April and June. BTW, she played Ozga once before, 2 years ago in Spain on hard and won easily, but this time it'll be on clay.

Good luck Ana

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

In R2, Ana beat Ozga easily, 64 61. With this, she'll move back into the top 300, at ~280-285. Ana is defending only 14 points through mid-November, so she has a good chance to make a big move up the rankings.

In the QFs, Ana plays JURIKOVA (#280).

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Lost a tough one to Jurikova, 6:7, 4:6 Still, it's an improvement in form and let's hope it stays that way for the rest of the season.
