Indeed. 4 of our girls played and won a grand total of nine (9) games.

Ajla still to play tomorrow morning, perhaps she can reduce the damage...

Same thoughts...
Honestly, there is nothing to be "rejected" to Ana Konjuh who played her first MD grand slam match and against world number 4. And just before her operation. I just can't image what was in her head. She is just 16, she is nominally kid.
If you ask me, there can be very little "rejected" to Mirjana Lucic Baroni. She had difficult opponent too.
Petra Martic loss doesn't surprise me but the score...she touched her new down with this...Anicka Beck is really good player but she is not Serena Williams...I'm really sad that career of Petra Martic turned in completely wrong direction after that RG R4...
And for the end biggest disappointment...Donna Vekic...even Mrdeza almost taken out Hradecka... Simply, everything seemed well with this girl from beginning but since Birmingham (and it is very long period) she is really bad... It is not that she didn't win but if you ask me, even though she won most games out of all our girls, her loss is by far the worst cause it was easiest draw so far. Now, her rank will drop a lot, oh well...she wanted to be top 50 by the end of last year. Well, for beginning of this she will be out of top 100...From this perspective, I'm so sorry that Ana Konjuh didn't draw Donna cause I guess it would be very nice chance for her to win MD match at grand slam...and at least we would have one girl in R2 if nothing...

Best of luck to Ajla tomorrow!

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

This has to have been the worst AO ever from our perspective. Ajla was the only bright spot, but she choked again

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

I wouldn't agree with you. Ok, our players maybe flopped but we have 5 players in grand slam MD! That is really respectful for small county as Croatia is. We had much worse times when we almost did not have players in MD. But yet, if you ask me, only one who truly dissapointed is Petra Martic.
Reasons?
Ajla - best preformance, unforutnately choke
Ana - loss to inform 4th on the world, really can't be much rejected
Miki - oh well, she is around top 100 for quite long time, you can't expect her then to beat top 15 player
Donna - she explained her loss with long term progress and let's say we believe to her

Petra - she should loss but double bagel against non seeded player is really something should worry about her...

i guess i was referring to worst overall for both men and women. cilic's ridiculous choke (that top's ajla's by a mile) and dodig's retirement after he was cruising really seal it for me

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

Plus Croatia's top active juniors, Fett and, on the boys' side, Serdarusic, both lost in R1 of singles at the pre-AO G1.

In doubles, Serdarusic also lost in R1; Fett made it as far as R2--but only by a walkover in R1.
