Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

^ Nice win.

In doubles, Darija is defending only 84 points (less than 15% of her total) during the first half of next year (Jan-June) so if she stays healthy she has an excellent chance to break into the top 100.

Good job so far and good luck on your next match!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

They won QF 6:0, 7:5, and will next play the top seeds Uhlirova/Voracova

This semi will push Darija to ~#107 in doubles. Finals would get her to around #103.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

^ Don't forget to deduct 34 points, which is her 11th best result in doubles.

Moved up some more in both singles and doubles. In singles from 341 to 330, and in doubles from 113 to 110.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija is playing in this week's $25K in Belfort. She was seeded #2 in qualies and qualified with a bye in R1 and a walkover in R2 (over Sina Haas). Easiest qualifying effort in history

In R1 of the MD she plays Stephanie Vongsouthi (#249, career-high #233). Good luck, Darija!

Hope she wins R1, although it might be tricky without any warm-up

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija JURAK (CRO) defeated Stephanie VONGSOUTHI (FRA) 6-2 7-6(2)

Plays Mijacika in R2. At least there'll be a Croat in the QF, guaranteed!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Even if she doesen't go further she'll jump by about 15 spots after this, so pretty close to top300 again. She'll probably also overtake both Vrljic and Ozegovic. Not a bad week.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija is playing this weekend in Paris qualies. In R1 she plays Birnerova (#245, but high #59 in 2007).

The winner plays Sprem (#4) or Ondraskova.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

She's defending 4 points from QR3 of Midland 75k, so hopefully she'll win at least that one match (which would be 8 points). Where she is at the moment (ranking-wise) every point counts.

Good luck Darija

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Eventhough she hasn't made a huge result in singles this week, Darija teamed up with Marosi for doubles of Paris WTA and they won their R1 match, taking out the 4th seeds Borwell/Kops-Jones in three! Then yesterday they lost the QF to Govortsova/Poutchek 11-9 in the third(), but since Darija wasn't defending any points in doubles this week and got 120 for winning that R1, next week she could be inside top100, and will surely be at a new career-high in doubles. I say "might be inside 100" because it seems she could be something like one spot outside, but that's still great, and I'm not sure how will other players do in doubles this week. But regardless, it was a very nice tournament for Darija. Contratulations

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija is playing in qualies for next week's WTA tournament in Malaysia. In QR1 she plays the #4 seed, Ferguson (#148). Very tough but best of luck, Darija!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija started off qualies in Cagnes-Sur-Mer with a convincing 6:1, 6:2 win over Balsamo. She's seeded 6th and will face Burgic next.

Good luck Darija!
