Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

After a rather slow start to the season, finally some nice news for Iva's fans. In R1 of Gonesse 10k, she drew the second seeded Hofmann (wta 323, c-h 315) and took her out in straights - 6:2, 7:6! And as a reward of sorts she now gets to play a qualifier (M. Wagemaker, wta 773) for a place in the quarterinal.

She is also playing doubles here and is a part of the top seeded team with Sotnikova, they have a bye in R1 and will play QF later today.

Hope this is a sign of some better times for Iva, as her only win this year (from two events played) came in singles QR1 in Grenoble 25k.

Very nice win!

Winner of the R2 match gets either the #8 seed, Benamar, or an unranked 16 yo SE (she reached a $10K SF last week).

Good luck this week in both singles and doubles!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Unfortunately...

Mekovec lt. [8] Benamar 4:6, 1:6


Not what we were hoping for, but you can't win them all. I wasn't really following this match, but what I do know is that the first set was a major break fest, with 7 breaks of serve overall. Looks like it was too much to handle for Iva as she apparently fell apart in the second. Oh well, not a bad week overall, a singles QF and a doubles SF is pretty good for her first solid tournament of the year. Looks like a week off is in order for Iva now.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Slight improvements for Iva's ranking this week, went from 594 to 581 in singles, from 656 to 637 in doubles, but the most encouraging part is seeing that her 2014 results reflect in the race ranking well above her actual singles one, she is currently at 370

Those numbers will actually be put to a test again this week, as she takes part in Sibenik 10k, as a seeded player. Anne Schaefer (#236) is leading the field there.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Mekovec v. Husaric 7:5, *0:0

I don't like how this day has started, first Ana V. going out rather surprisingly in R2, now Iva having problems in R1 against a player who is about to turn 20 and has never made it past #633, and after having a BP for 5:1 (afterwards she was also 4:5 down, btw).

Hope she can get her shit together, cause a loss here is definately not what she needs at this point.


P. S. And when I think that we also have Vekic, Tomljanovic, Lucic and Jurak in action today...

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

7:5, 6:1

Not great, but at least the second set was much better.

Next either Brabant (Q) or Caluk (WC).

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Rutarova wasn't much of a problem, Iva is through to the semis in Sibenik after a 6:1, 6:3 win

Tomorrow it'll be a match against the winner of [7]Toljan and (Q)Reichel.
