Re: Ani Mijacika cheering thread

It must be an amazing feeling to win first WTA match ever at the age of24. So deserved.
Also, Zakopalova is 0-6 down

Re: Ani Mijacika cheering thread

Congratulations, Ani--well deserved!

Ani's reward will be a new CH ranking next week, around 210. She'll be on the verge of the top 200!

Also, this should definitely get her into USO qualies.

Re: Ani Mijacika cheering thread

Unfortunately Ani lost but she came relatively close to her first WTA QF(!): (4) Klara Zakopalova (CZE) d. (Q) Ani Mijacika (CRO) 75 46 63.

Ani's clearly on the upswing after a very promising 2009 and equally disappointing 2010. Points-wise, three of her best four results ever have come since April. Hopefully these recent results and her new CH ranking next week will give her a nice confidence boost and inspire her to even greater success.

She's defending few points the second half of this year so it's very likely that she'll break into the top 200.

Re: Ani Mijacika cheering thread

It's nice to see her finish by such a tough scoreline against a player like Zakopalova, but equally sad that it finished with such a close loss. I wasn't following the live-scores all the time (just a few moments here and a few moments there...), but I did see she had a 4:2 lead in each of the first two sets. So Ani can definately play against girls of this caliber, but can't seem to "connect all the dots every time", so to speak. This year is surely proving to be a good one for her, and these clay events played during the summer are really good chances to grab some nice points, so great to see Ani making the most of them. It'll be great to see her in the USO quali draw (assuming she shows up, but I really don't see why she wouldn't). Hope she does some more match practice like this before it starts

Re: Ani Mijacika cheering thread

So the final set was a total collapse...this one's gonna hurt Well, at least she lost to a solid player after fighting hard, but I think this was a real opportunity for some valuable points. I wouldn't expect to see Ani trying to qualify for Melbourne, she'll probably stay in Europe to prepare for the indoor part of the early season, so now it's probably no slams till Paris. Hope I'm wrong.

Re: Ani Mijacika cheering thread

It was awfully close, but Ani is through to the $25,000 Sarajevo final:

SF: Ani MIJACIKA (CRO) (3) defeated Katarzyna KAWA (POL) 6-3 4-6 7-6(4)

In the final she plays the #2 seed, Molinero. Good luck!

Either way, this should be enough to give Ani a new CH ranking, just outside the top 200. She's defending very few points the rest of the year so a top 200 finish is almost certain.
