Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

The loss to Falconi just shows that she simply wont be a decent Top100/50 player, as much as I hate to admit.
Great talent, but no serve at all there, I think she simply lacks the power.
Sloppy playing in crucial moments, with that pissed of behaviour.
Shes going nowhere, just another Croat hope, fading away. Honestly I think its time to face the obvious.

You are overreacting here!
I have no idea why you thought that Ajla is favorite when Falconi is in her best form at the moment, playing at level which Ajla never did.
She beat Govortsova, Zhang and Razzano, took set of Petrova last week.
Ajla isn't capable of doing anything like that yet.
It's just normal defeat, nothing strange here.
She beat players she was suppose to beat and that's fine.
Don't have such high expectations of her and it will be easier to follow her!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I dont think Im overreacting, and I also never had any high expectations.
Have you ever seen Falconi play, shes awful mate, I tell you awful, a shorty who cant hit a BH drive to save her life, equally what from she currently has.
You know its certainly time for some crucial wins, she cant always beat the girls shes supposed to beat or choking away matches against those girls.
Did you watch her last few broadcasted matches. Honestly I have never seen someone with such a piss poor serve, its not the 1st serve percentage that kills her, its her serve which overall a poor as hell stroke. Just look at her points, she won after bringin in her first serve. Really poor percentage, on her second one you never know if the DF is about to come.
Shes 18 years old know, at this, not long ago age players started to win Slams.(Im not saying she has to win a Slam neither she has to win a WTA tournamentbut) she either manages to establish herself on the Pro Circuit or shes going to be some journeywoman like Pandzic, Lisjak and all the other fallen Croats.
At age of 18 she has believe it or not 2 WTA Tour wins. Robson, Garcia, Watson, Stephens, already caused a stir on the Tour, while dont know even her name.

P.S her das was probably drunk when he said she would win a Slam, although he was just being a dad

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

No I have never seen Falconi, but judging by her results she is not this bad as you say.
And I don't expect Ajla to win slams, I just hope she can make it to top 100 eventualy.
When she achieves that then we will see how good she can be.
She can get in some sort of hot form still and make some good results or not.
Potential is there, it depends on her...
Yeah I don't like such statements from tennis dads, but I guess he wanted attention.

I don't think Robson and Garcia caused any stir on the Tour.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Both Robson and Garcia gave Masha a great fight. Ajla wouldve gotten the Double Bagel.

A certain somebody is being a drama queen

Let's cut our girl Ajla some slack. Consider that there's only one player ranked higher than her who's younger (Garcia).

Besides, it's impossible to predict career trajectories. Ajla could fall out of the top 200 by the end of the year or have her breakthrough tournament any week and break into the top 100.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I have seen Falconi play many times, she's good and smart. I was actually surprised to see how first set was close(not by games but by points).
But I also think Ajla's not making right progress. Anyway, US Open will show it all. Time to make it to MD.

This is very well said!
It's stupid to expect anything from her, you just never know how her career is going to be.
We can hope for the best and maybe she needs a bit of luck as well to get kind draw for some bigger points.
Often players suddenly reach next level, I sence it is close for her, we'll see.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla plays WC Lauren Embree in Bronx R1 this week. The winner will likely play the #2 seed, Hlavackova.

Good luck, Ajla!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

I know her father said in the past that they would like to work with Prpic since Ajla worked with him when she was younger. I have a feeling that this what she's doing with Evert Academy's going nowhere. She has the money to pay Prpic, he's no longer with Veic.. Maybe it's time to make big change. Because it's not me making stories, I remember her father saying two years ago how she expects Ajla to win Slam in 2011.
Well, good day, she hasn't even played MD.

Look at her results in the last two years. No progress at all. When she reached 50k Prague final last year I thought she would be TOP100 by the end of the year. She's done nothing but won two more 25k tournaments. Nothing on big stage, no big wins. Just few big chokes in Memphis and Miami. She was just lucky to draw that girl that doesn't even know how to walk, what about playing tennis, in Budapest.

Something's going wrong. She has the talent and all court game but she needs more power and even more consistency. And a therapy 'cause you can't choke that often.

I just hope for a big run in Flushing Meadows. Failing again in Grand Slam Q draw would just confirm that she's the level of player that her ranking shows.

I completely agree, especially with the last part.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Ajla has moved up from 179 in early July to 170 in mid-July to 165 last week and to 162 this week.

With today's win she'll likely move into the mid-150s. She'll be getting very close to her CH ranking of 154, from September 2010.
