Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

This week, Darija moved up in the doubles ranking from 72 to a CH 66 (old CH: 71).

She's playing Bastad this week, again with Marosi; they're the #3 seeds. Good luck!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

I don't think anyone saw it coming, but it's not the end of the world. They obviously lost to a team that was better on the day. Shame about potential 70 points, but actually Darija almost doesn't benefit anymore from those 70 point batches, and needs to reach at least semis in this category of events to benefit noticably in terms of ranking. Let's hope she'll more than make up for it in the weeks to come.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Very interesting situation for Darija this week in Cincinnati doubles. She and Marosi got into the draw as alternates when Kirilenko/Petrova withdrew.

As one of the top four seeds, Kirilenko/Petrova had a bye into R2. That means Darija/Marosi were automatically placed in R2. That would normally be worth 125 points, except players with a bye have to win at least one match to earn points. So 0 points for Darija/Marosi so far.

In R2 they're supposed to play Cibulkova/Hantuchova, later today. But Cibulkova retired from her singles match this morning. She might have tanked, but if she's injured, Darija/Marosi will be into the QF. That would be worth 225 points to them--Darija's best result ever--without having played a match!

It looks like Cibulkova withdrew from her doubles match as well.

Amazingly lucky break for Darija: 225 points (best ever), new CH doubles ranking (~60) and $13,850 for the team (one of Darija's best paychecks ever). And all without playing a single point!

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

i thought you didn't get points for the round unless the match actually started, which would leave them at 0 points... hope i'm wrong

I thought that was the case in first rounds but not in subsequent ones

Let's hope for Darija's sake that I'm wright. We'll find out soon enough.

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

And another lucky break: In the QF, instead of playing the #7 seeds, Kops-Jones/Spears, Darija/Marosi will play the WC team of Lepchenko/Stephens.

A win would give them 395 points and $27,525

Re: Darija Jurak cheering thread

Really good break for Darija. She'll move up to a new CH ranking of 50-55 (she's currently 66). It'll make it easier to get onto acceptance lists at the Premier WTA events and maybe even get seeded at the weaker Premiers.
