Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Ivana sure is lucky in this tournament, Orlova took out the 2nd seed Pavlovic (actually she destroyed her 2 & 1...), so Ivana really has an open draw if she can focus and keep her game going (and looks like her game is really on, cause she lost just 8 games so far).

Unfortunately she lost the doubles: (2) Fedossova/Kuryanovich beat (3) Hofmanova/Lisjak 7:5, 6:3.

Good luck against Orlova

In the QF, Ivana beat Orlova in straights, 75 62 Next, she plays either Lim (#406) or Bergot (#272) for a place in the final.

Good luck, Ivana!

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Well done Ivana, Bergot has been playing pretty decent lately (beating the likes of Wienerova, O'Brien and Moore this summer) and is currently on her best ever ranking. But for the title she'll have to beat Kuryanovich, by far the best opponent she had during this tournament, a former #166 and current #216. Under ideal circumstances Ivana would be a huge favorite, but she showed this year that you just never know with her, unfortunately. Still, even if she loses she'll jump from the current #370 to about 335, and if she wins to about 310!

Ajmo Ivana

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Congratulations on another title I really didn't think she'll win so easily (although I was hoping she'll win), so it looks like she's really playing well! I'm afraid she won't play any serious tournaments any time soon, she's scheduled for another 25k next week, and with her current ranking it's hard to believe she can enter any large events without a wildcard.

Anyway, nice to see Ivana winning again, I hope it's a start of something good for her

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

I believe Ivana was the last direct entry, yet she won the tournament without losing a set:

R1: Ivana LISJAK (CRO) defeated Annalisa BONA (ITA) 6-2 6-3
R2: Ivana LISJAK (CRO) defeated Elixane LECHEMIA (FRA) 6-2 6-1
QF: Ivana LISJAK (CRO) defeated Natalia ORLOVA (RUS) 7-5 6-2
SF: Ivana LISJAK (CRO) defeated Audrey BERGOT (FRA) 6-4 6-4
FR: Ivana LISJAK (CRO) defeated Iryna KURYANOVICH (BLR) (7) 6-4 6-1

In Limoges R1, Ivana plays a 17-y.o. qualifier, Amandine Hesse. Good luck, Ivana!

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

Yeah, she was really impressive last week. But considering she also played some doubles I'm guessing there isn't much left in the tank for this week. Still, I believe she should at least win a match or two here, because of the form she showed she's in.

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

A nice start. This girl has never been higher than 700's so it's good to see Ivana didn't waste too much effort on that match. But the next one will be much tougher, the 3rd seed Savinykh (ranked 232, c-h 214), who took out #268 Kostova 1 and 3.

Re: The "Ivana Lisjak deserves a cheering thread" thread

^ Wow, what has Ivana been eating?!? (I hope it's nothing illegal )

Seriously, this is an excellent win for Ivana. Savinykh was the #3 seed and is an up-and-coming 19-yo ranked #232 and a recent top-20 junior. I didn't expect Ivana to win--and I certainly didn't expect her to do so with the loss of just three games.

That makes seven wins in a row for Ivana, all in straight sets. Her QF opponent is Bergot, the #6 seed, whom Ivana beat last week 64 64. Let's hope for a repeat!
