what a disaster. lucic, vekic and dodig all injured. karlovic also with back issues, but at least he's playing. cilic in bad form. only ajla got through a round of qualifying this weekend and it was against a pretty useless WC

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

Good luck to all our girls at Wimbledon!
I hope Ajla can play well since it is a big tournament.
Donna really needs a win, I wonder how bad that injury is.
Mirjana is always dangerous on grass.
Hopefully Ana joins them.

Martic has the best draw, she will win if she managed to recover from injury. Watson will be tough for Ajla, she is playing great this week and is still in Eastbourne draw. Vinci will be tricky for Donna, but I won't be surprised if Donna wins. Both Lucic and Azarenka are having problems with injuries but Victoria is big favorite here. Konjuh has pretty solid draw, I can see her beating Marina.

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

After some very good results the past six months, I'm looking forward to follow the development of:

+ Ema Mikulcic, 22 yo, currently at a CH #360 (#540 at the end of 2013 season)
+ Tena Lukas, 19 yo, at a CH #579 (#761 at the end of 2013 season)
+ Adrijana Lekaj, almost 19 yo, at a CH #490 (#626 at the end of 2013 season)

Good luck to all three!

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

Anyone here know what happened to the following players:

Maria Abramovic
CH ranking: #266 in singles and #141 in doubles. Will turn 27 later this month.

Indire Akiki
Never quite broke into the top 400 (CH ranking: #406). Turned just 23 a little over a month ago.

Dijana Banovec
CH ranking just inside the top 400 (#397). Turns 22 in two days.

Neda Koprcina
CH ranking: #828. Still a teenager, until December of this year.

Ani Mijacika
One of the few Croatian women to break into the top 200 (CH ranking: #193). Turned 27 a little over a month ago.

Karla Popovic
Seemed promising, with a CH ranking of #531 having just turned 17. Still only 18 years old.

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

Vekic
Martic
Lucic

Ajla few times managed to win 2 or 3 rounds but these 3 cro girls are real mess at the moment...
Donna played 4 good tournaments in 2 years, Martic injured and mess last 2 years, Lucic selfdestructive,out of form mess last 2 years

Konjuh our only hope but she can't play a lot of tournaments

Till the end of this year I think we can't expect more than 5 WTA MD wins by our girls -all combined! (probably 4 by Ana Konjuh)
