Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Darija is playing qualies of Nantes 50k. In the 1st round she beat Piquion (ranked 473), but in the second she'll face top seed Chakhnashvili (world's #222 and former #134) Good thing is, Darija leads h2h by 1:0. Bad thing is, that match happened 5 years ago on clay

Good luck

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Wow, Darija managed to beat Chakhnashvili, 63 26 62. Congratulations to her; that's her best win in a while.

In the final qualy round she plays the #8 seed, Feuerstein (FRA; #329), who has yet to lose a game in her first two matches. Hope Darija can do it.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

She didn't make it to MD in singles, but had a nice start in MD of doubles, where she's playing with Zec-Peskiric. But after a straight sets win in the first round they're facing top seeds Jugic-Salkic/Voracova in the quarters. Hope they can make a surprise.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Jurak/Zec-Peskiric def. Jugic-Salkic/Voracova 6:7 6:0 10:2

This will push Darija some 30 places up the doubles rankings (to around 230) and she'll be Croatian #2 in doubles, overtaking Jelena Pandzic! No points to defend here, so it could get even better!

Good luck

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

After a straight sets win, Darija is in her 5th doubles final of the season, but first on anything larger than 25k. Hope she takes her second title of the year. She and Zec-Peskiric will play 3rd seeds Dzehalevich and Fedak in the finals.

Good luck

P. S. A title here would get her on the brink of top200!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

No title this time unfortunatelly, but still a solid tournament overall.

Darija is already in quali draw for Ismaning 50k, plays a wildcarder Zaja in the first round. But she'll probably play a much more solid oposition in the form of 6th seed Frankova, as early as next round. Her energy levels are probably not great at the moment also, after 10 matches in two weeks. No points to defend here in singles, but there is 12 in doubles (semis of last year's 25k).

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

She easily won QR1 and in QR2 she's in fact playing Majeric of Slovenia, whom she beat in their only previous match, last year on clay of Maribor. Let's hope she can repeat that.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

After a walkover against Majeric and a very convincing 6:2 6:1 win against 3rd seed and compatriot Vrljic (Darija's 4th consecutive win against her; Vrljic won only 1 set in 4 matches), Darija joined Beygelzimer, Hlavackova and Klaschka in the main draw! With 4 points won so far she'll move to around 375, and even higher if she beats Soler-Espinosa, her R1 opponent. A tough job it is (Spaniard won their only previous match, 2 years ago), but Darija is in a really good form, so who knows...

Ajmo Darija

She joined forces with Ivanova in doubles where they're 3rd seeds.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Jurak def. Soler-Espinosa 6:1 6:2

She lost the doubles though, but you can't have it all, right.

Whatever she's doing lately, hope she keeps doing it

Go girl

That's a terrific result--but, wow, where did that come from?!? It was totally unexpected for me, especially given the scoreline. This will move Darija up to ~#360-365.

In the next round, Darija plays 16-year-old Camila Giorgi (ITA, #514; career-high #492), who upset the #6 seed, Zec-Peskiric.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Today's opponent is Lyubtsova, a tough task, but considering how Darija's been playing this week, I think anything's possible. Lyubtsova is a regular top200 player, with a career-high rank of 149, one 25k title won this year, and only 2 losses to players ranked outside of top200.

Fingers crossed!
