Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Great win Polona

I have been impressed by her progress over the past 12/18 months

Unfortunately, I didn't get to see Polona play at the Aussie because she wasn't there, so can somebody please explain her game style to me, and her potential in comparison to the likes of Simona Halep, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and the other '91's
Also, hoping that she and Jess play together during the junior grasscourt season as I can see them winning or doing quite well at both Roehampton and Junior Wimbledon

Polona will be a top 10 junior soon and a top 200 WTA player probably this week
Keep it up

Polona is by far Slovenia's biggest talent. In my opinion anyway... She has more than just a game, she has the mentality with it and I think she can go to top 10 WTA for sure. She only plays for a season and a half if I'm right on the ITF, so that's a big jump on the rankings. She will be top 200 I thnik if she gets a couple of more wins in Zlin.

And for the game: She has a great, great forehand. A lot of power and really great placement. She tends to use a lot of slice, because her backhand isn't the best shot of hers. She should improve her backhand, but that's just a minor thing. For sure she isn't a typical female tennis player, not like Sharapova, Ivanovic, Azarenka and other hardhitters, but she has an all-court game combined with great serve and forehand and even backhand if it's on (and she can confuse opponents with slice). Plus she has the tennis mentality

That was never really in doubt.
I hope she makes good use of it, last year she was really close to beating Vesnina, but just froze in the final set. I remember coming to the court and she was sth like 3-0 up in that one.

I'm really interested to see how her BH looks now, haven't seen her play since last year and it will be very interesting to see how she has progressed with it.

No.

Yeah, I'm sure it's better now, cause she couldn't win all those matches otherwise.

She lost against Kostanic 26 26

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

I spoke with her mother (to arrange an interview) 10 minutes ago

Polon(c)a caught cold lately, but she's just fine now. There's a training on her schedule tomorrow, then a little chat with me, massage in the afternoon and on wednesday morning, she has a plane to catch - to London of course!!

Re: Polona Hercog Cheering Thread

Could we see Polona play with Marina in Portoroz I wonder. Marinas entered there as first priority and I'm not sure if Misa is going to be there (plus Marina and Polona have made a WTA final together...)

Hrastar if you manage to get an interview could you find out, pretty please

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