Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Polona is in qualifying in WTA Istanbul as the #1 seed.

She has won her first two matches and will play tomorrow for a spot in the MD.

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

1R vs Pironkova... beatable for sure

Istanbul 1R: [8] Tzvetana Pironkova d. [Q] Polona Hercog 6-4 7-5

Tough loss but at least you lost to someone playing well in recent weeks. Great tournament.

Polona

But it's great you've qualified for the MD and lost close to Tsveti who beat Ana a week ago...

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Too bad....

I was sure she could take a set or win... good luck in her next tournament anyway

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Its a good team to have in Istanbul as both will benefit from it. Marina has a woeful record on clay, so she was looking for a claycourt partner. Polona was [probably] looking for someone with a bit more experience than herself, someone that she could look up you could say.

The quotes from the matches so far is that they play very well as a team, nothing else from NZ Media so far.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Yeah, Polona is looking for another partner since Stephanie Vogt( her regular partner and friend) got injured and is out for the rest of the season
And Polona is pretty good doubles player for her age, so Erakovic shouldn`t worry about that

Marina wasn't a bad doubles player at that age either. She won Junior Aussie Open, Junior US Open, twice finalist at Wimbledon. Won a few other GA and G1 titles as well...she could well have been someone Polona has looked up to

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Indeed. Erakovic needed too many years to crack Top 100, hope it wont be the same story with Polona. Altough this partnership wont last long, as Erakovic will play with Krajicek, and Polona with different challenger players( most likely Italians).

But it`s great to see she can play good whoever her partner is. This might change when clay season comes to the end
