Re: Jelena Ostapenko

2-6 4-2 to Jelena. Has started to pick up her game. I arrived just after the second set began. Her serve isnt good enough. Jang is killing the 2nd and sometimes even the first. Because she is smaller, she has to go for winners to keep up. I hope Jang falls away a bit. I will give you more updates.

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

Jelena got a bit lucky in the second. Jang choked a little in the tiebreak, a lot of unneccesary unforced errors. Hopefully she can pull through

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

Jelena won 2-6 7-6(4) 6-3 against Jang! Great comeback.

She plays (16)Kyle McPhillips next.

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

A miny choke at the end. Had tonnes of opportunities and ended up pushing. Jang got some momentum before jelen got lucky (2 netcords, a jang double fault and a reallllllllly long rally where jang netted a short backhand). I hope she has a good attitude in the second round and can do some damage

Next up Kontaveit/de Vroome. Difficult but hopefully they make a good effort

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

Jelena got a walkover in doubles but lost 62 63 in singles to kyle.
Next she has Bhosale/Sutjiadi who hopefully her and Irina will beat

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

McPhillips is three years older than Jelena. For Jelena to win her first match here is a great achievement.

She ended up reaching the doubles quarterfinals with Bara before losing in a third set to Bhosale and Sutjiadi.

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

A great performance from Jelena. A promising year ahead. Hopefully she can get top 800 in singles ranking

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

Jelena will make her professional debut at Tallinn 10k from 13-19 of February. A nice place to start but Tallinn always draws a very strong field. Also, she will probably play the second Tallinn tournament as well.

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

Jelena is 6th alternate for qualifying in Tallinn 10k 13 feb. She should make main draw. I hope she plays fed cup, as she should make the team. Itll be sevastova, marcinkevica, dekmeijere and her.

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

Shes up at no. 4 alt so she should get in now. I think that instead of using national ranking, they should also use junior rankin to determine who is higher as Indy de Vroome would beat Kadi Ilves 60 60

Re: Jelena Ostapenko

$10K Tallinn:
Q1: Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) d. Maria Jespersen (DEN) 63 61
Q2: Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) d. (4)Chantal Skamlova (SVK) 64 64
R1: (Q)Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) d. Maya Gaverova (RUS) 62 64
R2: (Q)Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) vs. (wc)Indy de Vroome (NED)

Great senior debut for Jelena so far with a couple good wins. Don't think she has what it takes to beat a top ten junior yet but best of luck.

2016 Title(s):
Suicide: Strasbourg
