She played Zagreb 75k this time last year so she had some points to defend, but even with just this one MD win she'll get enough points to jump from current 270 to around 240! This is a huge chance, cause a quarterfinal here would get her to around #210, so very close to US Open qualies!
I don't imagine Ana will beat Dulko but it has already been an amazing week for her. Who would have thought that Ana, rather than Karolina or Mirjana, would be the Croatian player to reach a WTA QF this week?!?
Does anyone know if this is Ana's best tournament ever (as far as points won)?
Ana moved up from 280 to 270 this week and should jump up to ~205 next week. She'll become the #5 Croat, behind Martic, Sprem, Tomljanovic and Lucic. Also, she's pretty much guaranteed to make US Open qualies.
