This girl just beat Anett Kontaveit 57 63 60 :eek:
She has a bright future. Next round she has an italian wildcard :)

:lol: I wanted to open thread about her for longer time since she is from same town like me.
I guess now it was appropriate.
I knew she was good when she beat Konjuh in SF of Croatian Championships.

Anyway another win for her:
(Q)Adrijana Lekaj (CRO) d. (wc)Giulia Pairone (ITA) 36 61 63

Re: Adrijana Lekaj
 
Well done :)
She has a real shot at the final if she can past Akvile/Jang (which she should do) and then one of the unseeded players.
Good luck for dubs with Ana :)

EDIT: She will now play Lithuanian Akvile Parazinskaite and after that has either Siniakova or Blanco :)

Well done Adrijana!!!! Hopefully she can make the final. It would be funny if she played Antonia Lottner, Qualifier vs Qualifier :lol
She has a wonderful chance here to get a GA title!!!!!

Sadly Adrijana lost 76 (9) 62. Shame she couldn't take the first.
Anyway, it was still a great tournament for her and must give her confidence going into Wimbledon.
Something we forgot to mention is that she is actually in the doubles final with Ana Konjuh. They are up against Vickery and Abanda, the time I picked to win from the beginning. Best of luck :)

Don't think she is making the Wimbledon Q draw :sad:

I know that the list is already out but if for example she was ranked number 1 (I know it won't happen) going into wimbledon even if she didn't make the qualies, can't they give her a SE or something?

Re: Adrijana Lekaj
 
An SE is a special entry given when a player on the Q list goes so deep in the tournament the week before that she can't play Q . The only way she can get in is a WC and there's about a 0% chance of that happening.

Lets hope for US Open then :lol:
I think its a bit slack that the wimbledon entry is out before the first big tournment on clay :shrug:

Lost the final, unfortunately. But with the points earned here Adrijana will climb more than 50 places in the ranking, joining top 70.

Thats great :)
Vickery and Abanda are very good powerful players. Although I thought her and Ana would match the, but anyway. A finals still great. I am slightly shocked/disappointed by her loss to Siniakova :confused:

Re: Adrijana Lekaj
 
Adrijana is in the semi's of G1 Offenbach in Germany :cheer:
Next round she faces New Zealander Emily Fanning :)
Hopefully a final against Ana :yeah:
She beat Ana in the Croatian Championships apparently :oh:

Re: Adrijana Lekaj
 
Great result for Adrijana. With it she'll move up to ~55 next week, a CH ranking (she's currently 68 and her CH is 66).

Where has this girl been until now? :lol: She's almost 17 already. Late bloomer, perhaps :lol:
