Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

(1)Diana Enache (ROU) d. Dijana Banovec (CRO) 61 64

That's too bad. Still it was another good week for Dijana. She was the only unseeded player to reach the SF and she'll move to a new CH ranking.

Good luck again next week!

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

A very strong move up the rankings this week for Dijana: up more than 100 spots, from 723 to a new CH of 618 Congrats!

Next week, after Dubrovnik I points are added, she'll move up to another CH of around 585.

Let's see what she does this week, in Dubrovnik II. Good luck!

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

In R1 of this week's Dubrovnik $10K, Dijana plays Danka Kovinic, a 15 y.o. who's currently at a CH ranking of 722. Last week Kovinic beat Elora Dabija, who reached a CH ranking of 273 just last year.

This could be tough. I hope Dijana pulls through.

Dijana continues to display excellent form at this week's Dubrovnik $10K:

In the SF, Dijana plays the #7 seed, Natasa Zoric. Good luck, Dijana!

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

Dijana moved up to a new CH ranking this week, from 618 to 580. Next week, once Dubrovnik II points are counted, she'll move up yet again, to around 550-555.

Congratulations on your progress, Diana!

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

Nice jump up in the rankings this week for Dijana, to a new career-high: from 580 to 550. She's now the #11 ranked Croat.

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

Players are dropping out of next week's $25K in Prerov like rats abandoning a sinking ship. It looks like Dijana will squeeze into the qualies draw.

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

Odd that Dijana didn't play this week in Dubai. She never withdrew--she's still on the MD entry list.

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

I wonder when Dijana will play again. She had a very promising year last year but hasn't played since late October.

The good news is that Dijana is finally back in action next week, playing in the main draw at the Antalya $10K.

The bad news is that she drew the #1 seed, Reka-Luca Jani (337, CH 252). That's a tough break. I don't expect Dijana to win but I still wish her the best.

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

Let's hope Marseille will be the place where things start getting better for Dijana's 2011 campaign (0-3 in singles so far this year). She'll play qualies of a 100k there, and couldn't really have asked for a better QR1 draw; M. Peral of France, 2 years younger and so far never ranked. Last year Dijana won a round here so she'll have to win at least two matches to actually benefit in terms of ranking, but considering her recent results, I think points are not the most important thing at the moment.

Fingers crossed

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

She tumbles down the rankings a bit this week, but wins the first quali round in Marseille. Although winning 3:6, 6:3, 6:1, against a kid who's never been ranked is a bit too close for comfort, it's nice to see her at least win a match finally. Next she'll face the 3rd seed S. Werner.

Good luck!

Re: Dijana Banovec cheering thread

$100K Marseille, QR2: Dijana BANOVEC (CRO) defeated Scarlett WERNER (GER) (3) 3-6 6-3 6-4

This is a nice win for Dijana, considering that Werner beat Njiric easily, 62 62, just last week.

In FQR she plays Ginier (#621). Good luck, Dijana--this is a nice chance to qualify for a big tournament!
