Final qualifying round:

Again she got bad draw because if she wins first round 2nd seed awaits next!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Tena doesn't have good attitude, at some moments she looks great but mostly plays bad.
Needs a lot of work still...

Unfortunately in R2 she plays the #2 seed, Barbieri. It'll probably be too much for Tena--but good luck!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Nice win for Tena today in $10K Antalya R1: Tena LUKAS (CRO) defeated Emma FLOOD (NOR) 6-7(8) 6-3 6-3

Flood was the highest-ranked non-seed; also, Tena recovered nicely after losing a very close first set.

In R2 she plays Zakarlyuk, who destroyed the #5 seed, Romanova, 0 and 1. It's gonna be tough, but good luck, Tena!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Good news and bad news from Tena in Antalya:

R2: Tena LUKAS (CRO) defeated Marianna ZAKARLYUK (UKR) 6-4 6-3

QF: Eugeniya PASHKOVA (RUS) (4) defeated Tena LUKAS (CRO) 7-5 6-3

Overall a good week for Tena, I would say: she beat two higher-ranked players; kept it fairly close against the #4 seed; and picked up four points.

Shame for losing close first set against Pashkova.

Re: Tena Lukas thread

$10K Antalya R1: Tena LUKAS (CRO) defeated Anastasiya YEPISHEVA (KAZ) 6-1 6-2

In R2 she plays the #6 seed, Pashkova, who beat Tena two weeks ago, also in Antalya, 75 63. Better luck this time, Tena!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

It's nice to see Tena making her way in the pro tour, even if it's still at the lowest level. She has won three matches (all in MD) so far this year. That's the most of any of our players!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

$10K Antalya R2: Tena LUKAS (CRO) defeated Eugeniya PASHKOVA (RUS) (6) 6-4 6-2

Very nice win! Pashkova is #479 and beat Tena in straight sets just two weeks ago.

Unfortunately, in the QF Tena plays the #1 seed, Dinu (#306). A win would be asking too much but at least it'll be a good experience for Tena. This has already been a successful tournament for her.

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Tena picked up 4 points two weeks ago. Those points will be counted next week (no updated rankings this week because of the AO). She will then move up to a CH ranking of ~795 (currently 849). First time in the top 800!

She has picked up another 4 points this week. When those points are counted, Tena will get another CH ranking, around 740.

Of the Croats, she will pass Sunic, Klepic Mekovec, Popovic and Pandzic () in the rankings.
