Banana Bobusic 4 Eva! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Hey it looks like no one ever started a thread for Bojana Bobusic... or 'The Boj' as I like to call her

Well, seems like she's in form again, so I thought I'd start one for her. Her last few tournament results:

QF in $25K in Bundaberg $25K (as qualifier) - def. Letcher in R2
then in American $10Ks she's gone:
F in Landisville
SF in Sumter (won doubles too!)
F in Hilton Head

She's #13 in Australia so far this year and going to break back into the top 500.

In 2009, she came from nowhere (US College tennis I think) to qualify and reach the finals of Darwin $25K and went on to have a good Aussie challenger season and ended the year in the top 500 - a nice surprise for us to have a new prospect on the scene.

2010 wasn't such a good year. She had some good results at the start of the year and broke into the top 400 but then couldn't defend her points at the end of the year and her ranking dropped to the 600s.

She seems to have quickly gotten back on track so let's see how far The Boj can go in 2011!

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Good to see Bojana come good in the States

Did great in those $10Ks, she seems comfortable playing there after all those years in the college system. I don't ever see her getting much higher than 350, but I'd like to see her prove me wrong. A strong finish in Oz this year could certainly do good things for the ranking as I don't think she has that many points to defend.

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Saw Bojana play today in Darwin $25K R1: def. Viktorija Rajicic 6-2 6-2 (I think).

Bojana looked great. Was hitting it deep and hard. Made a few loose errors but always looked like winning. Viktorija looked uninspired and even though she can belt it, Bojana was just a stronger player. Well done and good luck in R2!

A few more wins and she'll have a career high ranking. You'd have to think she's a good chance for some qualifying wildcards in January, wouldn't you?

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

I was so impressed with her today. Here's my little report

Bobusic def. Webley-Smith 6-1 6-2

This was an awesome match from Bojana. I really like the way she plays. Her backhand is so strong and she hits so many shots consistently deep. She seems to have a good attitude too. Emily was making a lot of errors, which wasn't helped by Bojana's consistently deep hitting. Bojana raced out to 4-0 lead and I think Emily barely won any points on her 2nd serve. The first set was over very quickly. In the first game of the 2nd set, something set Emily off and she smacked her racquet into the ground. Not satisfied, she picked it up again and *smash*, *smash*, *smash*, and it was bye-bye racquet. She got a point penalty for it too (I missed the first violation - not sure what it was for). Bojana held firm and went up 3-1. She saved two break points at 3-1 15-40 and went up 4-1 and held on for a very convincing win. She is so small but plays really nice tennis. Hope she continues to do well

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Mount Gambier 25k

32 - Bojana Bobusic AUS [8] d Ashley Keir AUS [Q] 6-2 6-1
16 - Bojana Bobusic AUS [8] d Karoline Wlodarczak AUS 6-4 6-3
Qtr - Bojana Bobusic AUS [8] d Sacha Jones NZL [3] 6-4 7-5
Smi - Bojana Bobusic AUS [8] v Isabella Holland AUS [2]

The good thing, if they weren't already, about these results is that Bojana has very, VERY little to defend over the next 6 months. Her ranking could sky rocket into the top 200 if she keeps this up.

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Yeah she's done awesome this year, including a bunch of great OS results in small ITFs. Lol @TS saying 'I don't see her going above 350'. I'm sure you're glad she proved you wrong.

Two main hurdles I see for The Boj: Getting over the line and finally winning a tournament - she's got 0-5 record in finals and then to start winning in bigger tournaments. I don't think she's won a match above the $25K level. Will be very interesting to see how she handles wildcards she might receive in January. Remember Tammi had a great ITF season last year but crumbled in the Aussie WTA events? I suspect Bojana's mental strength will come through and she'll make the most of it.

I think she can beat all the other semi-finalists and has a pretty good chance here... Go the Boj

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

it would be good to see her play at 50k level, shes only ever played 5 tournaments in her career over 25k (4 were 50k's in the states)

was Bojana a good junior? i saw that her first ever singles tournament was australian open quallies back in 2004, so she must have impressed somehow.

Re: The Boj! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Territory brings up a good point about Patterson, Boj worries me in the same way. I think it was 2 years ago she got up to around 400 and then last year she barely won matches and dropped to around 800. Hopefully that doesn't happen again and this isn't just an abberation.

Bojana was a alright junior, her career high was 70. She beat Wozniacki in the first round of Wimbledon in 2004

In juniors Boj came through with the likes of Dubravka Cupac and Nathalie Tanevska who were pretty good, Cupac especially had the game and attitude to make top 200 if she had stuck with tennis full time!

I'm not so sure about attitude. She certainly had the game though.
