Croat have amazing teens

Konjuh and Vekic. I feel Konjuh could be better she hits a heavier ball and is consistent

Ostapenko is up and down in juniors but she is doing quite well in the pros so far.

WD Ana :D
After she struggled tro get past Fridman Sutjiadi and got bagelled first rpound vs some American WC I thought that this trip would have been a waste. Obviously not. This surface seems to suite Eastern Europeans as they have the advantage of Clay which benefits their movement but it is also really fast, like a cross between IH and Clay which are normally their best surfaces :) And Haas has been in great form this week :)
GL at Orange Bowl :)
If someone else is going to steal Anett's crown, Ana is definitely my top choice :D
Ana is very good, but she';s the kind of girl who I don't see improving much further in the sense that she has stopped growing and she already has a game, so unless she can learn more skills, the transition to pros will be difficult :( I hope she makes it :D

And which Eastern European player are you talking about? Because no player from Eastern Europe qualified to the QF and only 2 of them got to the 3rd round :shrug:

It'd be exciting if Ana breaks out like Maria did in 2002-2004 period.

Anett and Yulia, plus Donna last year. Victoria Kan in the past etc.
There weren't many Eastern Europeans in the Draw this year :)
And Siniakova made the finals :shrug:

Pardon me, but Croatia and Czech Republic are not in Eastern Europe :spit:
Czech Republic is located between Germany, Poland and Austria, if that's in Eastern Europe :oh:
Croatia is right near Italy, neighbor to Hungary and Serbia to the East and even ~ 1000 kilometers west to the middle of Romania, and Romania is not an Eastern Europe country (Southeastern at best :D )

Romania is definitely eastern Europe. Croatia and Czech Republic, while being closer to central Europe, are still considered part of eastern Europe.

Not according to wikipedia or to my personal knowledge :shrug: or to geography :oh: Seriously, maybe Romania is close to the East and you can call it an Eastern European country, but Czech Republic is exactly in the center of Europe, while Croatia is in the same axis, just some hundreds of kilometers to the south.

In English, Western and Eastern Europe have political meanings as well as geographic meanings. For most people the terms are still tied to the Cold War-era separation of Europe.

That's true, but my statements were solely geographical, not geopolitical :p

I meant politically and geographically :)
Like these countries have a strong Indoor Hard and Clay Court tradition, therefore Green Clay is the best surface :)
Geographically and Politically are different:
E.G. Czech Republic is Geographically central and Politically East
Estonia is Geographically Easy but Politically Scandinavian :)
Also IMO, for tennis Central Europe and Eastern Europe are moulded into one :)

Everyone but the Eastern Geographical European themselves consider Czech and Slovakia are Eastern European countries. :oh:
We do categorize your countries in political way. :shrug:
