^^Yeah definitely.

Wonder how many of our players will win first matches in new season.
So far 0-1 with Lucic loss.
I hope someone starts well.

First up is Martinique, the week of January 6. The acceptance list is quite weak (Silvia is #4) so hopefully she can pick up some points. SF would be a nice start.

It seems like only Martic will win a match from our players this week.

I've been worried about the first week's results too. All the Croat ladies have tough draws. Just hoping that someone will win.

I came home late and decided to stay awake to follow the scores from Shenzen live. (it's 4:40 am now)

So far all 3 are struggling: Donna lost first set 3-6 after making a first break, Martic saved 3x set point and is losing 4-5, Ajla came back from 1-5 only to lose a set 3-6

And of course Miki lost yesterday.

Bad start of the season

I don't think it is bad start of season, just normal one.
None of Croatian players are good enough to be favs vs these players.
We just have to wait again if someone will have breakthrough in this season.
Also we still have Ana to play.

Plus Vrljic and partner lost in straight sets in doubles ($25K Hong Kong R1)--even though they were the top seeds.

Ana K's win today makes up for all the losses this week

Plus Mirjana/ALG just won their R1 match

This

I'm so impressed with way ALG/MLB won against amazing doubles team! Once Mirjana came back to good form (around top 100) in 2010. she have announced big things: to win big titles at biggest stadiums, etc...I think she is capable of it (but in doubles)!

Ana's win reminds me of Mirjana beating Coetzer in her debut event

Great day for Croatian tennis in singles and doubles

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

OMG this thread is for me

I think Donna's being a bitch for not congratulating Ana on her win but saying that she hopes Ash Barty gets better. I don't think it's an accident.

You might be right...Donna is very 'public'so you would expect her to be the first one to congratulate and tweet Ana She tweeted borna few days ago when he won that 10k and congratulated him on great 2013

But never mind...Donna is probably the last person on Ana's mind today after this great victory

Maybe Donna called Ana /but even after that you would expect her to tweet about it/

I want Clijsters-Henin type of relationship between these two

Noooooo, that would be awful for our tennis! I want them to win FC! Belgium with so strong players won only once FC...that is a shame! I don't want that to happen to those girls.
Ok...maybe with years they will become rivals but I do not want them to become like Henin and Clijsters!
