Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread



Still it was a nice week for Iva and it'll be a nice move up the rankings a week from Monday (roughly some 40 spots to around 540). It's even better when you see that she has virtually no points to defend until mid September.

Next up is another 10k in Croatia, this time in Bol, where she'll be seeded.

Bol 10k, doubles R1:

[3]Husaric/Mekovec def. Radan/Toljan 6:0, 6:7, 10:3

Not exactly what you'd expect from a seeded team, but will take it. Next up is Caluk/Muminovic in doubles and singles R1 against Carla Touly (WTA and c-h #790).

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Won singles R1 today 3 & 3, plays a local, unranked qualifier Rajic in the next round.

Let's hope she doesn't mess this up. No reason to waste a good chance for another solid run here. GL Iva!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Other seed from her section is out, so Iva has nice chance for at least semis (probably Bukta or Toljan there).

2R: Rajic (NR)
QF: Zagorac (NR) or Sipek (1145.)

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Through in doubles as well, into the semis after a 6:0, 6:2 win

She and Husaric will face another unseeded team there, Stuchla/Touly who took out the 2nd seeds Schaefer/Vlachova 10-8 in the third.


Good luck there!

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

6:0, 3:6, 6:2 - tougher than what one would expect against an unranked qualifier, but I'll take it.

In the semis it'll be either 7th seeded Toljan or 2nd seeded Bukta.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Unfortunately they were close to making it into the doubles final but lost 2:6, 6:4, 7:10

In the singles semifinal she'll face Bukta (WTA 305) tomorrow, it'll be their second encounter, Hungarian won the previous one in the 2nd round of Umag 10k last year, it was 6:4, 6:1.

Hopefully Iva can do better this time around

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

So far so good - Iva in the driving seat, 7:5 1:0*.

Tomova awaits in the final after Scaefer retired at 4:6, 0:1.

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

7:5, 6:2 after 13 breaks in total - 8 of them by Iva - but this is a very nice win indeed (see how the scoreline looked the last time they played), congrats girl!!!

Second final in as many weeks is wonderful to hear and it'll bring her a nice big boost in the rankings, no matter what happens tomorrow. From current #581 she should move to at least around 515 in two weeks time, and if she beats Tomova it could be as high as 490-ish, which would be her new career-high ranking.

Go for it Iva

They haven't been playing long at all and already Iva is down 16 14 to Tomova. It's looking grim

Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

1:6, 2:6

This is actually a little odd for her, cause she usually wins the title once she's in the final, and now she managed to lose twice in the finals in as many weeks. Hope they'll work on this and identify the cause. Coming into this season her w-l record in the finals was 4-1 (all 10k's, with the loss coming in her first ever final, back in late 2011). What's encouraging is that this year she already made two finals by mid April, while in the previous two seasons she made as many per season.

Anyway, it's clear that she keeps on improving, so let's stay positive. Looking forward to her next tournament

And from 385 to 351 in the Race - she's definately underranked!
