Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She just took a set of Kerber, 7:5 (after losing the first one with the same score)! This is already a great match for Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

A win without a retirement would be nicer of course, but the points are still valuable. Congrats Ana!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Considering her current form, next round seems to be winable as she will play the winner of match Rus. vs. Siegemund!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

She played Zagreb 75k this time last year so she had some points to defend, but even with just this one MD win she'll get enough points to jump from current 270 to around 240! This is a huge chance, cause a quarterfinal here would get her to around #210, so very close to US Open qualies!

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

I don't imagine Ana will beat Dulko but it has already been an amazing week for her. Who would have thought that Ana, rather than Karolina or Mirjana, would be the Croatian player to reach a WTA QF this week?!?

Does anyone know if this is Ana's best tournament ever (as far as points won)?

Re: Ana Vrljic cheering thread

Ana moved up from 280 to 270 this week and should jump up to ~205 next week. She'll become the #5 Croat, behind Martic, Sprem, Tomljanovic and Lucic. Also, she's pretty much guaranteed to make US Open qualies.

Yup, so far R2 from qualies of Strassbourg in '08 was her highest point gain - it was 56 points and here she's already at 86. And qualies of a slam are another nice reward.

It'll be her 4th time playing in a slam, in '06 she lost in QR2 of US Open, a year later in QR1 of Wimbledon and in '08 in QR1 of US Open. Let's hope she does better this time around.

Too bad she had to retire... Hope it's not serious.
