Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Good Lord I didn't even notice she was playing somewhere, and she not only won a tournament, but won a 100k+H so only a step below tour level. Huge congratulations! Just for comparison, about the same time last year she was a finalist on 10k, so she's in a significantly better form. This will not only bring her to top100, but even close to #90, so we should see her on the biggest tournaments in doubles draws soon.

Well done Darija

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Wow, that's really nice to hear. Good for Darija--congratulations! Here's the draw:

R1: Jugic-Salkic/Jurak (BIH/CRO) d. (wc)Pons/Salgi (FRA) 60 61
QF: Jugic-Salkic/Jurak (BIH/CRO) d. Brianti/Camerin (ITA) 64 63
SF: Jugic-Salkic/Jurak (BIH/CRO) d. (4)Meusburger/Woerle (AUT/GER) 26 76(6) 13/11
F: Jugic-Salkic/Jurak (BIH/CRO) d. Cohen-Aloro/Mladenovic (FRA) 06 62 10-5

And it comes at a really good time for her too--after losing her last four doubles matches!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija climbed to #93 in doubles this week and is playing Estoril WTA. She teamed up with Jugic-Salkic and in R1 they beat Coin/Pin in three! This will bring her another 5-6 places up at least, cause she's not defending anything this week or in the next few. In the quarters they'll face the 3rd seeds Barrois/Woehr.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

keep going
they had better stats throughout the match...finally were able to pull away in the end. pin/coin had 5-2 in the second (and i think darija and mervana had more points won at that stage--stupid doubles scoring)

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

In the SF they play an unseeded team: Diatchenko/Vedy. Good luck!

Amazing that just one week after breaking into the top 100, she's practically into the top 80.

Well, it was close but Diatchenko/Vedy won: 63 46 105. Still, an excellent tournament for Darija.

Good luck on her next one!

The bad news is that Darija lost in the final round of qualies
(3)Eloisa-Maria Compostizo-De Andres (ESP) d. (7)Darija Jurak (CRO) 63 57 63

The good news is that she got into the MD as an LL

The bad news is that she got the worst of the qualy placements, against the #2 seed, Valérie Tetreault

If she couldn't beat the #3 seed in qualies, I don't see how she beats the #2 seed in the MD. Nonetheless, best of luck to her!

Darija is also playing doubles this week. Unfortunately, her team play the #4 seeds:

CHALOVA (RUS) / JURAK (CRO) Vs SAVCHUK (UKR) / YAKIMOVA (BLR) (4)
