(2)Andrea Hlavackova (CZE) d. Ajla Tomljanovic (CRO) 62 36 60
In general i have no idea what to think about Ajla and her potential. All seems really erratic, she could get a good coach and reach top 50 in a year, but also on the other hand she could just stay 100-200 for the next 5 years.
She needs a good coach and some sort of a breakthrough before she's 20, otherwise nothing much will happen in her career IMO.
Yeah she is not "americanized" that's for sure!
Too bad about this match, Hlavackova is very dangerous player for anyone.
Hopefully Ajla can have some luck with US Open Q draw, for a change!
Really big US Open for her. I mean she's playing this WTA qualies for 2 years now and it's just not working. Who knows, if she won just one of the many matches she choked away(like last year in Miami vs. Shvedova) she would maybe even be TOP50 now.
This way she's gonna have this mental ''problems'' during hole career if she doesn't find that breakthrough soon.
(16)Yvonne Meusburger (AUT) vs Ajla Tomljanovic (CRO)
(wc)Ashleigh Barty (AUS) vs Julia Glushko (ISR)
Stefanie Voegele (SUI) vs Lenka Wienerova (SVK)
(18)Aleksandra Wozniak (CAN) vs Marta Sirotkina (RUS)
I think, this is the best draw Ajla had a a slam ever.
First 2 are kinda winnable, but then she gets WOzniak.
Wozniack, played like shit for now over a year, but suddenly crushed all in Vancouver.
She could make it through here, though.

Good news, Meusberger is toast on HC. She rarely plays on HC except of Slams.
She has yet to play a Hard Court tournament since Nassau in March this yer, where she lost in the first roudn 6-2 6-2.
Second round should be the easiest, with Ashleigh Barty, the wunderkind, won Wimbledon junior GS, same year born as Donna or Glushko.
Looks like now's really the time to make it to the main draw, hope she can do her best. Recently Ajla has been playing pretty well, and what's even more important, her head was in the right place most of the time. Looks like she and her camp are finally adressing the confidence (mental side of tennis) issue, and let's hope that'll pay dividends in New York.
