Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

very proud of ajla. she played right into her opponent's strengths for the first set and a half, but was able to regroup, change her strategy and expose her opponent's weaknesses. two huge return winners to seal the match. will write a report tomorrow

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

ajla shouldn't start before 6, so i'm hoping i can make it!

First set: Ajla served very well, which is probably why she was able to hang in there. Ishizu has a great forehand and is very fast. So fast, in fact, that even when Ajla would pull her wide on the forehand and then try to attack the backhand, Ishizu would be able to still run around her backhand side to hit a forehand. In addition, Ishizu's serve, while not very strong, is very well placed. Ajla missed tons of returns because Ishizu kept hitting into Ajla's body and Ajla was not quick enough to move out of the way. Ajla missed two critical returns in a row in the tb (from 3-4* to 3*-6) and the first set was over.

Second set: much like the first set for the first few games, except that Ajla was getting very annoyed. Ishizu was just painting the lines with her forehand...she probably had 20 winners at this point. Then Ajla's footwork got better, she started to just focus on making the return in and, most importantly, she started attacking Ishizu's backhand. Ishizu's backhand, unlike her forehand, isn't even challenger grade. The moment Ajla started abusing it, she took control of the match. Ajla started moving a lot better in the second set as well and played some very nice defense at time--especially in the game at 5-4*.

Third set: complete blowout. Ishizu's game crumbled and Ajla was very confident, hitting lots of winners. Ended the match with a massive forehand return winner off a first serve. Looked very happy to have won.

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Thanks for the reports!

Interesting to hear that about Sachie's backhand. It seemed like a lovely shot the last time I saw her play. Not as good as Ajla's but not that weak.

So happy to see Ajla qualify!

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

A convincing win to seal the qualifying process - well done Ajla! And the draw is one of the best she could've gotten. I'm really not looking past the first round, cause even that would be a very juicy 100 points.

So, Ajla has qualified for a slam for the second time in a row! Let's hope she'll get that MD spot directly in Melbourne, although I don't mind her doing it this way either

Re: Ajla Tomljanovic thread!

Great match in final qualifyig round!
Dellacqua is not a bad draw but she is very unconfortable to play against if she plays well and she seems to be in great form also.
Also she always beats Croatian players I believe so.

Good luck Ajla!
