Smile Macedonian tennis!





Here is a thread to discuss on Macedonian tennis players' results, Macedonian emerging talents, etc.

Feel free to join in!



* So far, and as far as I know, the best Macedonian tennis player is by far Lina Gjorcheska, 19 (born Aug 3, 1994), who got a CHR of 106 in juniors, and 496 at the WTA - she got it this year.
This year so far, she's made a 10K final in Sousse (she was seed 3 and lost to seed 2 Ana Sofia Sanchez 3 & 1 in the final ), a 10K SF and 4 10K QFs, all in Antalya.
This week, she's through to a 15K SF in Sarajevo, after beating (3)Bukta 2 & 2 in R1, Reix 6-3 7-6(5) in R2, and Curovic 6-2 2-6 6-3 in QF. Sf will be against (Q)Eleanor Dean. Best of luck!

* There's also Magadalena Stoilkovska, 18 (born April, 12 1996), who peaked at 440 in juniors. She seems a bit hopeless though, this year she's played 4 10Ks qualies so far, and managed to qualify only once, losing then in R1 in MD. Let's see how she'll evolve though.

And let's also see if there will be some exciting young talents emerging in the future!

Ajde Lina

Macedonia is such a tiny nation...with such a beautiful flag.

Re: Macedonian tennis!

The first step for FYROM should be to form a Fed Cup team

Gjorcheska has improved a lot. She hasn't shown that she can do much above the 10K level but she's a solid #1 for a country like FYROM. Stoilkovska isn't really good. She still can't get a WTA ranking despite traveling to Asia for weak 10Ks.

There was a player Josifoska who was top 500 WTA (I think?) and then she went to college in the US. She should have graduated by now, I'm surprised she hasn't returned to the tour. They could have a solid Group 2 Fed Cup team with Josifoska and Gjorcheska.

Anyways the good news for FYROM is that they aren't really great in other sports so it's likely that Gjorcheska could get a WC for the Rio Olympics. In London they only had 4 athletes total and none of them were qualified (they all got WCs in their sports). It would be a shame if the ITF don't give her an Olympic wildcard

Re: Macedonian tennis!

They only had 4 athletes at the Olympics in 2012? I had forgotten that...hopefully Lina gets something.

Re: Macedonian tennis!

With her SF in Sarajevo, Lina got a CHR of 439 (+29)!

And this week, she's through to the SF of 10K Nis in Serbia, as seed 2. She beat (8)Csilla Argyelan 6-3 7-6(7) in QF.

SF vs. (7)Dea Herdzelas.

Top 400 is not far!

Re: Macedonian tennis!

She lost in QF of 10K Prokuplje, to Elizaveta Ianchuk, who went on to win the tournament at the end. Lost 0 & 3, tough scoreline though.

But another QF!

Re: Macedonian tennis!

There's also Tanja Stojanovska, who is still a junior player. She's 17 currently (born Sept 2, 1996).

She has a CHR of 452 in juniors that she reached this year.

She hasn't played much this year, only 4 tournaments so far.

2 junior tournaments: G5 Belgrade Open, where she lost badly in R1 to a qualifier as seed 3; an G3 Kenana Cup, where she reached QF as a qualifier! (lost 2 & 2 to Arshinkova in QF).

Then, she tried 10K Prokuplje qualies both last week and this week. Lost in 3 sets to Ushakova in Q3 last week, and this week she lost in Q2 to Caluk (who qualified beating the top seed in straights in Q3) in 3 sets again. Not too far from qualifying someday...

Last week, Lina reached a CHR of 439 btw. Hopefully she'll manage to crack Top 400 by the end of the year!
