It's great to see Sunic on an entry list again. She has played only one tournament in the last year so she has lost her ranking. She's still young (just turned 20) and has been ranked as high as #561. Good luck to her!

Timna Ticic is back in action this week in a $10K in Budapest. She's currently unranked and this is her first time playing this year (the last time she played was in Dec. 2008).
In qualies she got a R1 bye, then won two matches against unranked players to qualify. In R1 of the MD, she played the #1 seed (doesn't that always happen to Croatian players?!), Palma Kiralyi (#465 and a local player).
What's impressive is that Timna won! The score was 63 57 61. In R2 she plays the winner of two other local players, Lucia BATTA (unranked) or Virag NEMETH (#938 but career-high #130).
This win will allow Timna to reenter the rankings, somewhere in the #1000-1100 range.
Might it be time for a "Timna Ticic cheering thread"...?
