Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

She saved 2 game points in the previous game but couldn't do it on the third - *2:4.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

And another break for Krejcikova in the last game, to close it out 6:2, 6:3.

Not a bad week for Iva, as she is back into top 600 once more, but we all know that she can play much better when in her best form. Hope she brings that sort of tennis back to the courts soon again.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Umag $10 000


singles 1st round

[1]A. Bukta vs (Q)M. Marc
I. Mekovec vs (WC)I. Horvat

doubles 1st round

Mekovec/Stefkova vs [2]Bogoliy/Sotnikova


Not exactly a kind draw in either singles or doubles. I expect at least that one win in singles, but Bukta hasn't been bad lately so that'll be quite a task. I don't know enough about doubles players on this level, but I expect it'll be a tough match, considering they're playing one of the highest seeds.

Anyway, good luck Iva

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

A pretty good effort so far in doubles:

Mekovec/Stefkova vs [2]Bogoliy/Sotnikova 6:7, 0:0


(8 breaks of serve in total)

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Lost to the top seeded Bukta (WTA 333) 4:6, 1:6. Not great, but not a disaster either, especially if we take into account that in the last four tournaments (this one included) Iva has been only losing to the top 3 seeds, while being seeded herself just twice and never higher than 7th. She is staying in Umag for another week (another 10k), for her 4th event in as many weeks and this time she might be seeded.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva just can't catch a break. Umag (II) 10k, R1 singles draw:

Mekovec vs (WC)Cuk
(Q)Bastianello vs [2]Malikova

Missed being seeded by one spot (again). The only positive in this is that Iva actually leads h2h against Malikova by 1:0, but that match was 2 years ago (Bol 10k) and in the meantime Malikova has risen to #377. The score back then was a double breadstick for Iva - here's hoping for a rerun.


Best of luck girl

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva wins the first set, but it's a close battle to say the least (7:5), with just 5 points separating the two in twelve games and Iva needing to break the opponent's serve three times to win the set. Hope she steps it up a bit in the 2nd (and that the reason for such a tough time today isn't her playing poorly).

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

In the end, after two tough sets, 8 breaks (5 by Iva) and almost 150 points played, Iva won 7:5, 6:3. A lot harder than I think anyone imagined it would be, but we can't know how each of them played using just the live scores and a few stats so for now I'll hold off my judgment. R2, at least on paper, seems winnable so let's hope for a quarterfinal here.

Keep it up Iva
