Karla Popovic cheering thread!
 
Another promising junior from Croatia! Last month (September 5) she turned 16 years and this week from qualifying she went to the final of Bol (10k)! Last week she was at QF of 10k Umag! With two more "1 point" wins she already accomplished recently (50k Zagreb qualifying and MD of 10k Osijek) and one win from last year, this week she was already 1090th place in the ranks! Hope she improves fastly! After all this, and considering her age I think she deserves cheering thread! :cheer: Good luck Karla! :cheer:

About juniors she is only 850th (carreer high 836th) but with only two tournaments played (one final at G5 and one R32 at G1)!

Tomorrow she plays final at Bol 10k against one more talented junior - Iva Mekovec! Good luck to both! :cheer:

I agree! Thanks for starting the thread :wavey:

After Umag she moved from 1233 to 1090. Even if she loses tomorrow, she'll move up quite a bit further, to ~910. Congrats!

Croatia has quite a few youngsters playing well in ITF tournaments in the past couple of months: Milas, Curic (both 1993), Pera (1994), Lukas, Mekovec, Popovic, Vlahinic (all 1995)--and, of course, Vekic (1996) ;)

^ Wow! I'm sad for Iva but happy for Karla. She'll move up to ~830 in the rankings. That's a huge jump from 1233 in just three weeks :eek:

Iva will move up to ~910. Coincidentally, Karla and Iva have an identical ranking of 1090 this week.

Karla is in Dubrovnik 10k semifinal! She plays as WC and after big fight, she beat one more WC in first round - Ivana Klepic 1-6 7-6 4-1, ret. And in R2 she destroyed 2nd seed (WTA - 496th) - Martina Kubickova 6-0 6-1! :eek: In next round she plays qualifier Margarida Moura and definitely, she is the favorite! Hope she will be able to win her 8th match in the row! :bounce:

Dubrovnik-2 QF: Karla POPOVIC (CRO) defeated Margarida MOURA (POR) 6-3 6-4 :yeah:

Eighth match win in a row!

In the SF she plays the #4 seed, Caregaro. Good luck, Karla!

Well done! Now, she has not anything to lose against Caregaro. She already made good performance and her opponent is 4th seed and favorite so she can play without pressure! :) Good luck! :bounce:

Unfortunately she lost 6-0 6-2. :sad: Well, at least she picked up some pts and will improve in ranks a little bit. ;)

^ Really too bad about the lop-sided score but it was still a good week for Karla. She'll move up ~100 spots, to ~755 from 853. Last week she was 1091 so that's a big improvement in a very short time!

This week Karla is 763th in the ranks. :)

Karla got a WC into Perin G1 this week.

In R1 she crunched the top seed, Mertens, 63 63. Mertens is #34 in the world :eek:

Karla is into the SFs of $10K Hvar this week:

R1: Karla POPOVIC (CRO) 6-2 6-3 Morgane PONS (FRA)
R2: Karla POPOVIC (CRO) 6-3 6-4 Martina KUBICIKOVA (CZE) [8]
QF: Karla POPOVIC (CRO) 6-1 6-2 Barbara SOBASZKIEWICZ (POL)

In the SF she plays Pera so at least it's a guaranteed Croat in the final :yeah:
