Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva is in quarter final

Round 1. vs. Petra KREJSOVA 6-1 6-1
1/8 final vs. Natalia SIEDLISKA 6-4 6-1

Now she will play against Valeria PROSPERI (ITA) (WC) or Francesca FUSINATO (ITA) (Q). Nice chance for semis.

She plays Fusinato, who is at her CH ranking of #1027. It's a really nice chance for Iva. Hope she takes it.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

With last week's Osijek title, Iva will move into the top 700 (from 706 to ~605).

With this week's result, she'll move into the top 600 (from ~605 to ~570).

Keep going!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

If she could be somewhere around #400 by the end of the year that would be great. It could even be enough to give her a chance to participate in a grand slam, cause cut-offs for AO qualies are sometimes (although rarely) as low as in the 380's.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Australia cut off has rarely been under #300. And there's no way I could see anybody going on such an expencive trip just for a 50:1 chance to get in. Plus, all WTA Q-draws leading into AOpen have cut off under #200 so I think only a crazy person would fly to Australia for that reason.

You are right about the fact that AO cut off is rarely that low, but sometimes it happens. And there are usually some Asian challengers leading into it (mid December - early January), where entry lists are not too competitive.

Of course, I'm not saying that she should travel to Melbourne at all costs, just that it would be nice if she'd have an option to do so, if she were to decide to go that way. Naturally, the only viable reason for her to do it would be for the sake of experience, but I know it's bordering with sci-fi to expect her at the professional grand slam so early.

Costs are indeed another factor against, but we don't really know Iva's financial background and the capabilities of her funding sources (she might be the daughter of an oil tycoon for all we know...).

Anyway, it was more of a thought than a serious expectation
