Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread! - Volume 2
Ajla's results on grass last year really give us another reason to look forward to Birmingham and the rest of it.
In each, Birmingham and Wimbledon, one win would suffice to defend last year's points (in Birmingham more than suffice since it's a Premier event now), but she also signed-up for Eastbourne so there's virtually no risk for her ranking during the grass season. Last time around she made some really nice results on this surface, including taking Flipkens to 7:5 in the third, Jovanovski to 9:7 in the third, but also scoring some decent wins (Razzano in straights etc.).
After grass, she has no significant points to defend until the US Open, when some serious work starts. There she'll have to reach at least R3 since she won't be playing qualies this year, and subsequently she has QF in Quebec to defend, but the good news is that this pretty much sums it up for 2014, as there are just a couple of minor ITF results to defend until the year's end (nothing she can't do playing a regular WTA schedule and winning here and there).
All in all, a great situation for her this year to end it very high up and maybe even land a seeding position in Melbourne next year. It's quite a bit to ask, but I don't think it's impossible given how she's been playing this season.
