What a heck is going on with Ilka? I looked at the table for that tournament that Jaqueline is playing in Budapest and saw Ilka's name in the Qualifying. She qualified but then lost in the 1st round to a LL. First, why is she even competing in a G2, just because is in Budapest? Second, what happened with her game. It looks to me that she is lost at this point. She doesn't even play enough competitive matches to build some continuity and gain confidence.
I saw that, but I was so disappointed I didn't even wanted to post her "performance" on her thread
I'm pretty sure she entered that tournament the last minute (that's why she needed to play the qualifying rounds), so I'm guessing she is recovering after some injury (that's why I wouldn't read too much into that loss to a LL). When you enter a competition so late it can either be an injury or just bad schedule management.
Definitely she hasn't been herself on court this year, but I trust her & I'm sure she'll find a way to get things going for her. I hope she will enter the Girls US Open and maybe we'll know more about her current form.
I don't get it. Jaq is fighting like crazy to gather points just to play the qualies for 2014 AO (and she will) while Ilka & Ioana Rosca don't even bother to enter the US Open although their rankings are good enough for the main draw
