Great fight from Aleksandra vs TOP10 Kvitova in SF, especially till 4-6 2-1.
Breakthrough week for Krunic, no doubt.
and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is
AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
She now has to defend her 50 ranking points from her 25k victory in Moscow next week to keep that ranking but as she will be the top seed there, and the rest of the draw doesn't looking terribly good she has a pretty decent shot if she is not tired. If Aleks can pulls this off she is pretty much sure to qualify for the Wimbledon qualifying.
Good news. The the Wimbledon qualies get picked based on next weeks rankings and as Aleks's Moscow points don't come off until the week after Aleks will be ranked 209 next week. This means that Aleks is pretty much sure of qualifying for the Wimbledon qualies.
I am really looking forward to seeing how she does in her 1st senior Grand Slam. Good luck to her.
My husband said that Alex looks like Putin. When I said that he has blue eyes while she has brown he said "So what? My father has blue eyes but I inherited my mother's brown, which doesn't mean that I'm not his son. She's obviously born in Russia. Maybe he's her father."
