Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva's QR3 might very well be over by now as it was scheduled for 10 AM, but still no info. Not sure how's the weather in Budapest, I'm about 2 hours away and it's been raining all day - with the outdoor claycourt event that could mean a washed out day...

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Apparently Iva took out Rottmann and will face the 3rd seeded Paula Kania in R1. Tough luck with the draw, but kudos for the effort in qualies

Way to go Iva! Btw, source?

EDIT: Nevermind about the source, I see now that ITF turned the live scores on (finally...).

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

3:3* in the decider - when you see that Kania had a total of 22 BP's on Iva's serve you get the idea how good Iva is at defending

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Guess 4 (or was it 5) MP's was too much as Iva couldn't do enough on serve. Shame cause she was so close, but on the other hand encouraging as well, given that she faced one of the best possible opponents in the draw. She is definately on the right track and if she continues to work hard it wouldn't surprise me to see her reach a new C-H ranking, maybe even by the end of this season. Looking forward to her next tournament (whichever that might be).

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

I guess that she will go back home, we have seven 10K's in all consecutive weeks Her ranking is still pretty low so maybe she will play at least 2-3 tournaments in Croatia.

Too bad we don't even have one 25K
