Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread
Very interesting situation for Darija this week in Cincinnati doubles. She and Marosi got into the draw as alternates when Kirilenko/Petrova withdrew.
As one of the top four seeds, Kirilenko/Petrova had a bye into R2. That means Darija/Marosi were automatically placed in R2. That would normally be worth 125 points, except players with a bye have to win at least one match to earn points. So 0 points for Darija/Marosi so far.
In R2 they're supposed to play Cibulkova/Hantuchova, later today. But Cibulkova retired from her singles match this morning. She might have tanked, but if she's injured, Darija/Marosi will be into the QF. That would be worth 225 points to them--Darija's best result ever--without having played a match!
