Breaktrough tournament for Teodora without doubt. In whole career she only once beat some TOP200 opponent and here beat in just two days two former TOP50-TOP60 players Karantancheva and Fedak (currently both ranked about #150 place)!
If Teodora beat in 2nd round Voskoboeva (currently ranked about #100) she will improve about 40 places next monday, reach career high and become 3rd Serbian player in TOP250.
Teodora lose 6-2 7-5, but this 100K Ortisei (ITA) is still her career best tournament. Very good work from her.

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
Tea is back in action next week at the 10K in Sibenik, Croatia. Though, I don't really like to see her switching to 10K's, but maybe she's trying to regroup, get back confidence and get some more wins under her belt.
