Nice to see her back, but where was she for 4 months?! I'm guessing injury and that's a bummer, cause her season is pretty much ruined now. This year she played just 3 tournaments before this one, while back in November she had that nice run in a Spanish 25k where she qualified and reached the QF before losing a competitive match to Pous-Tio. Also, back in September she won two consecutive 10k titles, one of which was without losing a set. Sad to see she is pretty much starting all over now.
She missed 4 months of another season...I really don't know where her career is going at this rate. If she got injured yet again she must consider serious changes to her training regime. She is too young to be away from competition so frequently.
Looks like Iva is trying to get her career back on track. She's playing $10K Budva this week. She's seeded #5 and in R1 she beat an unranked 19-year old 61 60.
Before this she played only four tournaments since February. During that time she won won only one singles match, in Q (though she did win a doubles title just last week). Her ranking has dropped to 770, from a CH of 504 earlier this year.
