Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Let's not be too tough on Iva. She had an excellent week, beating two players ranked higher than her. She'll jump up ~15 spots to a new CH ranking probably inside the top 60.

Also she came out of nowhere just a couple of months ago so, unlike Kan, she has little experience playing against top-50 players.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

she did have a great week just not used to her losing to younger players
kan is more established though, just like you said

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva is on the MD entry list for next week's G1 in Linz. She'll be unseeded so here's hoping for a good draw.

Very nice jump in the rankings this week for Iva: from 74 to 61. Congrats!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Unfortunately, not a great draw for Iva in Linz this week, where she's the #13 seed. She got a bye in R1, and R2 is quite winnable, but in R3 she'll likely run into the top seed, Jaksic (16, CH13). Good luck!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Nice jump! I hope this guarantees her a spot in the main draw of the US Open.

R2: Iva MEKOVEC (CRO) (13) defeated Lee OR (ISR) 6-2 6-2

And Jaksic it is in R3 That'll likely be too tough for Iva. Still, it'll be excellent experience. Iva needs to play the top juniors before she hits the ITF tournaments.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

In doubles, MEKOVEC / SINIAKOVA are seeded #5.

In R1 they got a bye and in R2 they beat AYZATULINA / KATSITADZE 75 46 [10-5]

In the QF they play an unseeded team, PANTUCKOVA / STEFKOVA (who destroyed the top seeds, HAAS / KONTAVEIT 62 62 ).

Good luck, Iva (and partner)!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Iva's singles and doubles wins this week will give her a new CH ranking next week, around #55 (currently #61).

(1)Jovana Jaksic (SRB) d. (13)Iva Mekovec (CRO) 6-2 6-2

Still, good experience for Iva and she'll reach a new CH ranking next week. And she still has the doubles to play.
