OK, not a tragedy. Good luck tomorrow in singles

Krejcikova is probably going to be world doubles #1...

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

I've just noticed that she'll face Krejcikova again in singles. Oh well, let's see if the score can be a bit better this time around... Good luck Iva

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Before the tournament she was around 590, currently she is roughly 555, if she wins tomorrow 540 and if she takes the title 525. That would be so nice to see. And with the new found confidence after today's win...


Go for it Iva

Iva is still in juniors so this is her highest junior win considering Krejickova is 3rd junior of the world (after untouchable duo Bencic & Konjuh)

Ana Konjuh | Donna Vekic | Mirjana Lucic-Baroni | Ana Ivanovic | Nicole Vaidisova

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

The last 4 players to beat her were Malikova (WTA 375), Bukta (WTA 314), Krejcikova (WTA 359, junior #3) and Kania (WTA 170). That's a nice crowd and even better when you consider that all of these girls are either right at or very near to, their best ever rankings - in other words, they're all in good form these days. If Iva continues like this, her own new best ever ranking (which would be 503) is not unatainable by the end of this year. Two more 10k's coming up in Bol right after this one and she is on the lists for both.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

First game was a tough one, went to two deuces and Iva got broken. In the next two each held her serve comfortably and then in the fourth Mikulcic held in a game that went to deuce.

*1:3

Iva breaks back in the 6th game to 30, to level the match.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Another comfortable service game and another break to 30 for Mikulcic and we're into the second set.

3:6, 0:0*

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Mikulcic survived a deuce game at the start of the set, then game one easy hold for each and then Iva got broken to 30.

3:6, 1:3*

Mikulcic about to serve for the match at 5:1 after she held to deuce and broke Iva to 30 again.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

And another easy hold for Mikulcic for GSM. Unexpectedly bad performance from Iva this time (either that or Mikulcic is the next Vekic or Martic). Third seeded Flink losing to G. Pantuckova ATM.

Better luck next week Iva.
