Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva is through to the QF of this week's $10K Madrid

Iva MEKOVEC (CRO) def. Jana JANDOVA (CZE) 76(3) 61

In the QF she plays the #2 seed, DE LA TORRE-SANCHEZ (#400). It would be too much to expect Iva to win but she has already had a good week.

In the QF Iva beat DE LA TORRE-SANCHEZ in straight sets, 61 75

She next plays the #4 seed, Guisard (#498 but CH 228). Good luck!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Match report from the Tennis Alternative blog (http://www.tennisalternative.com/mad...rt-rn1156.html):


QF4: Iva Mekovec (CRO) vs. Rocio De la Torre Sanchez (ESP)

Mekovec impressed me, she upset 5th seeded in 1st round and here she defeated 2nd seeded, local girl Rocio de la Torre. Rocio won her first service game but then lost 7 consecutive games as Mekovec was hitting so hard and accurate and she was doing too many unforced errors. She put a fight in the second set, and was leading *4-3, but finally lost it to Mekovec, truly deserved victory, nice tennis to reach the semifinals here, 61 75 for Mekovec. Second set was the best in terms of quality of today, in my opinion. Mekovec will face Guisard in the semifinals

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

^ Excellent! And after beating the #4 seed in R1, R2 should be easier.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva was the #2 seed at last week's Florence G2, but was upset in R32 by Chiesa, a qualifier ranked 144.

Fortunately, Iva is doing much better at this week's G2 in France; she's into the SFs:

R1: Iva MEKOVEC (CRO) [2] 6-3 7-5 Helen PLOSKINA (UKR)
R2: Iva MEKOVEC (CRO) [2] 6-3 6-4 Camilla ROSATELLO (ITA)
QF: Iva MEKOVEC (CRO) [2] 4-6 6-1 6-4 Daria SALNIKOVA (RUS) [5] Good win, as Salnikova is former world #14

In the SF, she plays the #7 seed, Routliffe (#86). Good luck, Iva!

By the way, Iva and Bianco reached the SF but lost to Lottner and--who else--Routliffe.

Next week she'll reach a new CH ranking and move into the top 50 for the first time.

Unfortunately next week she's defending her best result, SF at Trofeo Bonfiglio (GA) so there's a good chance her stay inside the top 50 will be very short.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva won a G2 in Spain this week. She was the top seed and lost only 14 games in five matches.

I believe this is her first junior title ever!
