Since her convincing run at the AO, Irena played an ITF at Sunderland $25K.
Average result for her ambition as she was upset by 8th seed/n°280 Vrljic in QF.
Was she in the best form for that match???...may be not, as she was forced to withdraw from the Open GDF Paris qualies due to illness.

She's now feeling good and flight to Memphis WTA to play the qualies.
1rst good result: She ousted 3rd seed/n°161 Julia Cohen.
Sadly, she now has to face 7th seed/n°182 compatriot and friend Larriere...for a place in the MD!

Good luck!

Irena qualified for the Main Draw!
As unseeded, she defeated 3rd seed/n°161 Julia Cohen 6/0 6/1, then she beat her compatriot and good friend 7th seed/n°182 Victoria Larriere 6/2 6/2 to qualify for the Main Draw!

In the Main Draw, she faced 7th seed/n°62 Johanna Larsson:
She played on the Central and gave a real fight falling 4/6 6/4 7/5!
With a bit more of experience, she could have finished that match as she was leading 5/3 in the 3rd set! :fiery:

However, Irena seems to play another level than her ranking!
After a close match vs Erakovic at the AO and here again at Memphis, she can capitalize on her level!

Good luck for her!

Good news, she was offered a WC for the Main Draw at Roland Garros!

Pavlovic, la Française qu'on n'attendait pas

La Française Irena Pavlovic a remporté à 23 ans son premier match sur le grand circuit en se qualifiant pour le deuxième tour de Roland-Garros face à la Taiwanaise Chang Kai-Chen (6-4, 7-5) dimanche.
"A la balle de match, j'ai pensé à mes proches, j'étais contente pour eux. C'est toujours à part quand on est à la maison", a déclaré la joueuse née à Belgrade, qui a bénéficié d'une invitation pour le tournoi parisien.

Grand espoir chez les jeunes, l'actuelle 176e mondiale a connu des problèmes de santé et d'entourage qui ont nui à son éclosion.

"Ce match, je l'aurais perdu il y a un an. Mais j'ai eu la bonne attitude. Quand j'étais petite, je gagnais tout. Mais j'ai eu des problèmes de santé et je n'étais pas forcément bien entourée. Il a fallu que je me détache de ce que les gens pouvaient me dire. Je ressentais trop de pression. Aujourd'hui, je ne me mets pas de limites", a déclaré Pavlovic, arrivée en France à l'âge de 3 ans.

Elle rencontrera l'Espagnole Anabel Medina (http://www.sport.fr/tennis/anabel-medina-11730.shtm) Garrigues ou la Britannique Laura Robson (http://www.sport.fr/tennis/laura-robson-10679.shtm) au prochain tour.

Pretty much out of nowhere, Irena won 25k in Middelburg :eek:

Jan 30th, 2014, 08:30 PM
Irena has been experiencing a 4 months stay in Australia...arriving in October...
She's having a smart week at Burnie $50K this week
Ousting 2 seeds en route for the semi final: 7 seed/n°185 Hozumi and Top seed/n°116 Linette in straight sets!
Hope she can keep that momentum...
A qualification for the final would mean a significative rise in the World Ranking...around 25 spots to be back to the Top 200:bounce:

Jan 31st, 2014, 06:29 PM
She lost 3 & 1 to Eguchi in SF. :hug: Still a great week! :)

Feb 6th, 2014, 02:20 PM
For the 2nd time in 2 weeks, Irena is in SF!!
This time at Launceston $50K
She just beat last week runner up at Burnie and Australian Open winner of the Junior Competition Kulichkova!
Next is 4th seed/Erika Sema...good luck!

Feb 6th, 2014, 04:06 PM
Go Ika, go! Kulichkova is a great scalp. :) :cheer:

May 23rd, 2014, 11:49 AM
Sadly, she lost to Pervak in Q2, 6-3 1-6 4-6 :sad: :hug: Too bad she couldn't pull out the victory after winning that 1st set! :(

May 24th, 2014, 07:28 AM
Nice fight. :tears: :hug:

May 25th, 2014, 08:43 AM
Nice fight. :tears: :hug:

For sure it's a nice fight, all the more, Pervak is a former Top 40, and who qualified for the main draw after beating Irena...
I'm always a little bit confused with Irena because I do believe that she has the qualities to reach the Top 100 or at least stay strongly in the Top 150...
Is it a question of physical issues ou mental's...I don't know....
At least, she doesn't give up...At the winter time, she decided to stay for 4 months in Australia to experience a new kind of training organisation...
In an interview after her match victory vs Sirotkina, she said that she was in the right direction.
Her lost to Pervak, even if it's a loss, is still encouraging...being able to tie the level with her is positive all the more clay doesn't suit to her game. She's much more into fast surface with her flat groundstrokes and big serve.
I wish that she could find the level she had in 2012 (reaching n°138 at the WTA ranking) at least where she had pretty good result in Slams:
-1rst Rd Main draw after qualifying in Australia
-2nd Rd Main draw at Roland Garros
-Last Rd of qualies at Wimbledon and the US.

Jun 17th, 2014, 01:29 AM

Ika will face Arantxa Rus in Q1. I'm a bit worried because Aran seems to have gotten her shit together these days so she won't be a bye. :tears: Allez Irena! :cheer:
