Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread
After a rather slow start to the season, finally some nice news for Iva's fans. In R1 of Gonesse 10k, she drew the second seeded Hofmann (wta 323, c-h 315) and took her out in straights - 6:2, 7:6! And as a reward of sorts she now gets to play a qualifier (M. Wagemaker, wta 773) for a place in the quarterinal.
She is also playing doubles here and is a part of the top seeded team with Sotnikova, they have a bye in R1 and will play QF later today.
Hope this is a sign of some better times for Iva, as her only win this year (from two events played) came in singles QR1 in Grenoble 25k.
