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!
Well, I couldn't have been more wrong--and I'm glad!

In R2 Darija plays her doubles partner, Chalova. Good luck, Darija!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Well this was unexpected, well done Darija! She got her revenge for losing to Tetreault last year in Midland. Hope she can keep this up.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija is playing RG doubles with Martic. They have a winnable R1 match, against Feuerstein/Foretz, a WC team.

A win is worth a whopping 160 points. Darija reached a new career-high ranking in doubles this week: 88, up from 89. If she and Martic win their first match, Darija would probably move into the top 80

76 in the third is much closer than I expected. At least they won.

This is a very important win for Darija. She'll move up by almost ten spots to the high 70s, a new career-high. She started the year in the 110s, so she has made excellent progress.

At this point she'll be able to enter just about any tournament and have the choice of some very good doubles partners.

It'll be interesting to see how far Darija can go.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Yeah, tv court tomorrow, but I somehow doubt it that our dear HTV will be showing the doubles...what a shame.

Best of luck girls, whatever happens is excellent, you've already done what you were supposed to

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Unexpectedly, Darija lost in QR2 in Marseilles to Karolina WLODARCZAK, a 22-yo whose career-high ranking is 440. It's a bad loss for Darija.

She and Jugic-Salkic are the #2 seeds in doubles MD. In R1 they play BELTRAME/IVANOVA.

Darija is defending a ton of doubles points over the next three weeks, so best of luck to them.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

It's a shame she lost, but I think it's more than obvious her focus is now much more on doubles, which, looking at the rankings and results, really makes sense the most.
