Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Great tournament for Darija! She'll likely move to another CH ranking next week, around #34

It looks like they'll for sure be seeded at RG

And they're bye-bye in the second

Jokes aside, even R1 in tournaments such as this one are tough. Best of luck girls!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

As expected, [2] Chan/Mladenovic won (3 & 4) and are into the final.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

I watched just the second set and it was pretty awful. After that break back by Chan/Mladenovic our girls completely fell apart and their opponents just kept playing better and better. Still, another nice week for them ahead of a big one.

Yeah, she seems to be on an undercover mission...

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

A nice jump in the rankings this week gives Darija a new CH ranking in doubles: from #36 to #32

She even surpassed Marosi, who is now #33

Hmm, I'm surprised--I didn't see this one coming. I thought Jurosi would be coming in full of confidence. But perhaps they were over-confident, or maybe they had a letdown after the very good last two weeks.

Oh, well, the loss won't affect their ranking at all, and I doubt it'll dent their confidence. Better luck in the next tournament!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Well, Rodionova is ranked higher than either of the Jurosi's, and was doubles #19 at one point while Lepchenko is not too far behind our girls at #65 so a pretty decent doubles player as well. That's why I said I saw it coming, especially after seeing parts of Jurosi's last match, which were anything but impressive. Oh well, onto the next one...

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Rome R1 doubles: GOVORTSOVA, Olga (BLR)/MOULTON-LEVY, Megan (USA) vs CHAN, Hao-Ching (TPE)/JURAK, Darija (CRO)

I hope Marosi is not injured
