Tena Lukas thread

New thread about our best young player till age 16.
I opened thread because of today's article in Večernji list about her.
Mario Velić author of the artcile.
Will just write it down here, I guess some of you migt be interested.

A nema ni 15 Tena Lukas najbolja među našim tenisačicama do 16 godina
Više gledam muškarce jer od njih mogu više naučiti

Dva velika uspjeha u samo tjedan dana bila su dovoljna mladoj kaštelanskoj tenisačici Teni Lukas da svima jasno pokaže svoj talent. Potkraj travnja okitila se titulom najbolje na jakom ITF turniru u Mostaru, gdje je redom pobjeđivala mlade reprezentativke susjednih zemalja. A onda je tjedan dana poslije potvrdila svoju dominaciju u Hrvatskoj, postavši državna prvakinja među tenisačicama do 16 godina, iako će sama tek za mjesec dana proslaviti 15. rođendan.
- U oba sam natjecanja ušla opuštena, nisam se ničim zamarala. Jednostavno sam sama sebi govorila: "Bit će što bude". I to mi se isplatilo - priča nam Tena.

Ima neka tajna veza

Isplatili su joj se i brojni treninzi i odricanja. Savki dan više od četiri sata druži se s reketom. Cijela obitelj joj pomaže, tata Ivica je trener, brat Feliks sparing partner, a sestra Tajna brine se o fizičkoj pripremljenosti.
- Cijela je obitelj u tenisu, tako sam i ja počela. S pet godina uzela sam reket u ruke. Najprije je to bila igra. Sad je ozbiljnije, a drago mi je trenirati s ocem, sestrom i bratom - kaže Tena.
Jedino majka Margita, profesorica tjelesne kulture i nekadašnja košarkašica, nije uključena u treninge.
- Moja je zadaća logistika - objašnjava Margita.
A Teni će trebati prilična logistička podrška jer je očekuje Europsko prvenstvo za tenisačice mlađe od 16 godina u Moskvi. Očekuje je puno treninga, ali i traženja sponzora jer put do ruske prijestolnice nije jeftin.

Nitko kao sestre Williams

Sama Tena ne boji se rada i odricanja, iako ponekad nije lako školske obveze, a pohađa srednju Turističku školu u Trogiru, uskladiti sa svakodnevnim treninzima.
- Moram posebno zahvaliti razrednici i ravnatelju, koji imaju jako mnogo razumijevanja - kaže Tena.
A kad ne uči i ne trenira, Tena ne bježi od tenisa. Uzor su joj sestre Williams, naši Ivanišević i Ančić, često gleda njihove mečeve.
- Draže mi je gledati muškarce nego cure. Bolji su, od njih mogu puno naučiti - ne skriva Tena.
Brat Feliks za sestru kaže da mora još popraviti kretanje, a njezine ostale adute, posebno jak servis, osjetit će protivnice u Moskvi.

Uz članak je objavljena njena slika ispod koje piše: Jako dobar forhend i dvoručni bekhend te sjajan servis Tenini su aduti.

Re: Tena Lukas thread

^ Who would have guessed that out of Njiric (#3 seed), Akiki (#5 seed), Milas and Lukas, Lukas would go the furthest in Brcko!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

$10,000 Brcko, R2: Tena LUKAS (CRO) defeated Barbara SOBASZKIEWICZ (POL) (7) 6-3 3-6 6-3

Tena is through to her first ITF QF! Who knows how she'll do, but she got a lucky break: instead of playing the top seed, Zlochova (#362), she'll play LUZ (#725), who crushed Zlochova 61 62

Good luck, Tena! Regardless, it has already been a successful tournament for her.

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Final

(Q) Tjasa SRIMPF (SLO) defeated (Q) Tena LUKAS (CRO) 6-3 6-3

No singles title for Croat this week.
Hopefully Tena got much confidence from this week and will continue winning in the future!
Great week!

Re: Tena Lukas thread

Tena strikes again at the 10k event in Vinkovci.
She beat Mariana Drazic(Cro) in the first round. 6-3 2-6 6-2 Congrats

btw, this girl Drazic, is also one to watch out for, she hasnt played any Junior events so far, but I saw her last year in Croatia.
Seriously this girl has a HUGE game. If she just continues to focuse on tennis, I think she could be something.
