That would be a great draw. At least we'd have a CRO-player in R2

Re: "Say what's on your mind" thread - rant, complain, celebrate or whatever

Speculating about the Croatian player to retire next, here are the five oldest among those with a singles ranking:

1. M Lucic-Baroni (32y 2m)

2. J Pandzic (31y 2m) Retired in all but name

3. A Vrljic (29y 9m) Running out of chances. Not expecting a break-through at this point

4. I Lisjak (27y 2m) What to say?

5. T Faber (24y 11m)

Given that Pandzic and Lisjak are essentially retired, it's pretty clear who from the list is going next

By the way, I'm surprised that with all the talk about players getting older, only four out of 24 Croatian players with a singles ranking are 25 years old or older.

...and here are the five youngest--plus one honorary one

Vekic and Konjuh have already proven themselves to be very talented, but anybody care to speculate how well the others on the list will do?

1. N Alibalic (15y 5m)

2. M Curnic (15y 11m)

3. P Granic (16y 4m)

4. A Konjuh (16y 5m)

5. J Fett (17y 6m)

6. D Vekic (17y 11m)

it's just too much consistent disappointment to make up for the two to three good weeks we have every year

i really hope ajla wins--she's been our best performer this year

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

well at least Donna and Ajla didn't lose against some irrelevant players...Belinda deserves at least top50 at the moment and Mona played very good tennis in last few weeks and when she's good she's at least top20

True that. This was the first time I watched Belinda's match, gotta say she's impressive for her age.

This.
People are overreacting, especially for Donna, like she lost to some club player or something.
