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

Yeah I opened this thread so I don't spam other ones with my bitching.

I expected more from our girls this week!
They all flopped except Mrdeža.
It's especially bc they all could have won too, draws were not that bad.
I hope they will have more luck in next tournaments, this week was great opportunity.

It's probably a record to have our six girl in WTA tournaments in one week. But results are really bad. Ajla and Ana choked, Donna and Mirjana were crushed, Petra didn't start comeback well. Who would say that our best player this week will be Tereza

Well I don't think Donna was crushed, she actualy was not a favorite for me in this match bc, let's admit, Mattek is capable of playing better tennis at this point of their careers and is underranked.
I didn't see Donna as favorite and winning a set doesn't mean she was crushed.

Ajla's and Ana's losses were horrible ones, so many such matches lost in the past as well.

Tereza really did well, I certainly didn't expect it.

Well yeah, "crushed" is maybe too much to say BMS was worst possible draw unfortunately

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

I'm still mad pressed and bothered because Sprem retired even though I waited more than half of decade for her to come back in form and win some flop WTA tournament

I'm mad at Lucic because she's stuck between 90-120 on WTA for 2 long now ! She needs to be higher and start winning matches, I'm mad at Martic because most of the time she looks so lifeless on court (and her hair is ugly)

Our young girls are giving me hope but I really can't wait 3 years for them to 'peak' and win some WTA tournament...I need it this year ! Croatian girls need to win at least one WTA tournament during this 2013

Yes that would be amazing bc Umag is such a successful event already even though it has very bad timing right after Wimbledon.

If not in Umag then I would like to have anywhere as long as tournament is set according to the flow of season.
Not for example clay tournament when there is hard court season going on and so on.

I was not aware of her, seems Croatia will lose one great talent for the future.

Great week for our girls

Ajla - R3 in Miami (80 points, still playing)
Donna - R2 in Miami (80 points)
Pandzic - final 25K in Ipswich - 34 or 50 ponts
Vrljic - semis in Sunderland 25K - 11/15/20 points
Pera (once a Croat, always a Croat ) - final 10K in Madrid - 8 or 12 points (lost only one set in six matches so far)
