Jill Craybas
 
I figured I'd make a cheering thread for Jill! She's one cool lady...

I hope she can defend most of her quarterfinalist points this year at the Nasdaq-100!

She just defeated Razzano 46 63 62. Well done Jill!

Go Jill :bounce: :bounce:

Paldias Mar 25th, 2005 06:01 AM

Jill plays Ai Sugiyama in the 2nd Round of Nasdaq-100 Open tomorrow, 3rd on Court 2. Good luck Jill and defend those points! :D

thelittlestelf Mar 25th, 2005 08:20 PM

Jill lost to Ai 57 46 :sad:. At least she gave Ai a good fight!

Good luck in your next tournament Jill!

Go Jill!

Estoril

Jill kicks of her red-clay season this week at Estoril. In the 1st Round she faces [LL] Madga Mihalache of Romania. Jill should breeze through and collect a win on the clay. Good luck at this tournament Jill, and go go go!

UPDATE: Jill won her first round match over [LL] Magda Mihalache ROM 6-3 6-1. Jill used her experience to take the match. She seemed to play pretty well (almost 80% of her first serves in), plus winning over 50% of return points. Next up Ludmila Cervanova of Slovakia. Should be a toughy, all the best to Jill!

1st Round: def. [LL] Magda Mihalache ROM: 6-3 6-1
2nd Round: vs. Ludmila Cervanova SVK

Jill defeated Cervanova 64 61! A great win, especially on clay! She is now back into the top 100!

Great job Jill!!!

Estoril

Jill has kicked off her red-clay season to an amazing start! :D She has advanced to her first QF on Clay as well as her first QF of the year. Coming in against Cervanova (who had reached a clay final earlier this year - Bogota) she had a losing record ('01 Indian Wells). She however did not let it faze her as she came on to defeat Cervanova 6-4 6-1.

Next up is the tough Russian Dinara Safina. They have never played before, however, Jill will be looking to play her game and try and frustrate Safina. Good luck Jill! :D

By the way - Jill re-enters the Top 100 at No. 92 with this QF appearance! :)

1st Round: def. [LL] Magda Mihalache ROM: 6-3 6-1
2nd Round: def. Ludmila Cervanova SVK: 6-4 6-1
Quarter Final: vs. [2] Dinara Safina RUS

Estoril

Sadly Jill's Estoril run came to an end today. Safina took her out 6-4 6-2. however, Jill did not go out without a fight. Jill was up 4-1 :sad: and always was attacking on Safina's second serve. Hopefully this is a sign of better things to come. Commitment-wise were not yet sure where Craybas is heading next (possibly Morocco).

Congrats on a great tournament Jill and on the Top 100 ranking, again ;)

1st Round: def. [LL] Magda Mihalache ROM: 6-3 6-1
2nd Round: def. Ludmila Cervanova: 6-4 6-1
Quarterfinal: l. [2] Dinara Safina: 6-4 6-2

Berlin

Jill somehow got direct entry into the Main Draw. :shrug: She's got a good draw to go to the 3rd Round! In the first round she faces a Qualifier, then in the second round Karolina Sprem (who is majorily slumping, and hates Craybas' game style) or Virginie Razzano (Jill beat her this year). In the third round she would face Mauresmo, however, although we have much faith in Jill I doubt she'll be able to beat Mauresmo on clay.

Good luck Jill! :) No news if she's playing doubles or not. Stay tuned...

1st Round: vs. Qualifier

That's a great draw! I hope Jill takes advantage of it... good luck Jill!

Current Commitments:
  • Week of May 2nd: German Open (Berlin) - Tier I (MD)
  • Week of May 9th: ECM Prague Open (Prague) - Tier IV (MD)
  • Week of May 16th: Unknown as of 05/01/05

Paldias May 1st, 2005 10:39 PM

Update: Jill plays Stephanie Gerhlein in the 1st Round of the German Open. This is a good draw for Jill, as Stephanie is out of the Top 200 and beat low-quality players in Qualifying. Good luck Jill! :)

Paldias May 2nd, 2005 01:34 AM

Doubles Update: Jill will be playing with American Jennifer Russell in the Main Draw of the German Open. They face off against the No. 8 Iveta Benesova/Tina Krizan. Good luck Jill and Jennifer! :)

Berlin

What a 1R win for Jill! She was down 3-0 in the final set, yet she managed to comeback and win over Qualifier Stephanie Gehrlein 4-6 6-3 6-4. Some really good fighting from Jill! :) Jill advances to the 2R of the German Open, where she will face Virginie Razzano, a player whom she has defeated this year (Miami, 4-6 6-2 6-3).

Should be a great match! Good luck Jill :D (Jill is 3rd on Court No. 1 tomorrow).

1st Round: def. [Q] Stephanie Gehrlein: 4-6 6-3 6-4
2nd Round: vs. Virginie Razzano

By the way, Jill's ranking now goes up to No. 82! Congrats Jill! :D
