Re: Tena Lukas thread

How did she get it

I have just looked at her result, two 10K's finals are her biggest achievements so far

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Tena in a WTA draw?! So random.

At least she drew one of the lowest-ranked players in the draw (another WC), so if she plays well she might keep it competitive for one set.

Here's her section of the draw:

PUTINTSEVA, Yulia vs SMITKOVA, Tereza
PAPAMICHAIL, Despina vs LUKAS, Tena
VOGT, Stephanie vs SOUTH, Melanie
VANKOVA, Katerina vs VAN UYTVANCK, Alison

Basically, her chances of qualifying are 0.000000%

She is not quite bad, and still young .. she will never be world class, but she is not bad ..
Had few injury breaks, I guess that stopped her quite a bit ..
She is ( was ) practising in one Austrian academy, probably she got the WC with their help; still a strange decision ...

ONE OF THE BEST EAST EUROPEAN TENNIS ACADEMIES ...

WWW.TKPOMAK.HR

Academy of Goran Ivanisevic, Petra Martic, Antonio Veic, Mario Ancic, Sanja Ancic, Karen Khachanov, Roman Safiullin, Ksenia Laskutova, Ana Savic, Emma Flood, ...

I vastly overestimated her. Lost 1 and 1 to Papamichail

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Tena on the acceptance list for two $10Ks in Florida starting next week.

I believe this is the first time, pro or juniors, that she'll be playing in the western hemisphere

Maybe she has started, or will be starting, college in the US?

Re: Tena Lukas thread

^ In R1, Tena plays an unranked 14-yo WC, Bellis--but it's going to be very, very tough: Bellis has played just two pro tournaments but has already managed to destroy Weinhold (391; CH 181) and Peers (432; CH 145), winning 62 61 in both cases, and also to take sets off Arvidsson and Boserup. This girl looks like the real deal.

Re: Tena Lukas thread

^ In R2 Tena plays the #4 seed, Zhao (438/same CH) or the top Q seed, 16-yo Zarazua (882/CH 862 and a top-50 junior earlier this year).

It won't be easy in either case but Tena has already surprised me once this week.

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Tena in QR2 of this week's $10K in Florida (she's the #2 seed).

There's only one other ranked player in her section (#1241) so unless she's ambushed by some surprise 14-yo wunderkind, Tena should be able to qualify.
