Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Not much new in the world of Jurak/Moulton-Levy partnership...they lost in the first round again, this time to Pliskova/Lucic 10-7 in the STB.

Lucic is surely a very good doubles player, but she hasn't been making noise in doubles lately and Pliskova is, well... That being said, I don't see this partnership with Megan going for much longer honestly. Their successes are too few and far between altogether.

This Pliskova has a doubles CH ranking of 50 (just last week) and two WTA doubles titles already this year (only Errani, Vinci, Peng and Zhang have more)

Really?! Boy, based on the commentary of the match I thought she genuinely sucks in doubles...

Yes, but Kris Pliskova is better in doubles and they are good because they play together since ever. That's important for doubles team.
With other partners Pliskova doesn't seem as good.
And they did won two titles, but those were Bad Gastein and Nuremberg where draws weren't strong at all.

I would actually say Mirjana has some better wins in doubles this year than Pliskova, but she only plays strongest tournaments and that's why she's ranked low.

She beat Petko and Stephesn with Dushevina, Hantuchova and Parra with Darija, with Daniela King/Zheng.. Pliskova beats the like Barrois etc

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

She got very lucky in Montreal. Got in as ALT after Petkovic pulled out and got probably best possible draw: Peer/Dabrowski..
