Not at all surprised that Mijacika retired--but I'm thrilled that Indire is coming back. Where did you hear that?

Primorac was seeded at $10K Rovereto MD this week but is in $10K Vienna qualies for next week

Interesting that one European $10K draw could be so much stronger than another one on consecutive weeks.

I think Majoli might reconsider her choices.
I think it's time to have Mirjana back in Fed Cup. Petra and Ajla are and Mirjana would be good for the team. Not only for doubles, but also singles since Donna's in bad form.

For me CRO team should be Lucic, Konjuh, Vekic, Jurak(Martic).

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

In my opinion, the current state of Croatian women's tennis. What do you all think?

Trending up
Konjuh: No progress lately, but how can you not feel good about her future?
Lucic-Baroni: Granted, based on just her last result--but she looked healthy, confident and motivated
Mikulcic: She keeps rising to the occasion as new challenges and opportunities present themselves
Mekovec: She looks under-ranked sitting outside the top 400
Lekaj: See Mekovec
Lukas: Somehow, she's close to the top 500
Fett: Making a nice transition into the pros
Alibalic: Takes advantage of extremely lucky draws to keep collecting ranking points

Trending down
Martic: From "top talent" to "walking bye"
Vekic: From "next big thing" to "walking bye"
Savic: Sadly mismanaged career

Treading water
Vrljic: Retirement looms
Mrdeza: Hard to see her getting back to near the top 150
Njiric: Keep moving, folks--nothing to see here
Primorac: Promising player but hasn't had her breakthrough
Susak: Wasn't she supposed to be a talent? Her career went nowhere

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

Susak was never going to make it big, so fragile, body and mentally, suffered mono, studies law these days, plays for fun .. Savic on occasions a nice girl, doesnt have a winning mentality in my opinion .. Mekovec, Lekaj, Lukas, well maybe some of them some day will make something but I guess you know how many players simply fit into ITF level and thats it .. to me they seem like that ..

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

I know it's still a bit early but I'd rate 2014 as very good for Croatian tennis (probably best season in last 5). Look at the results:
- first singles WTA title since 2002
- first doubles WTA title since idk when but it was a while
- multiple grand slam deep runs: 2x4th round, 1x3rd round
- sucess at lower levels: Mekovec, Mikulcic and Lekaj consistently reaching ITF finals and semifinals and improving their ranking
