Re: "Say what's on your mind" thread - rant, complain, celebrate or whatever

I'm updating the approximate rankings comparison between Vekic and Konjuh at various ages. It's very early in their careers obviously, but so far their progress is about the same. That said, Ana has played more competitive events than Donna at the same age.

At 14.5 years old
Vekic: Unranked
Konjuh: Unranked

At 15 years old
Vekic: 820
Konjuh: 865

At 15.5 years old
Vekic: 390
Konjuh: 385

At 16 years old
Vekic: 235
Konjuh: 270 (Ana is still 2.5 months away from turning 16)

At 16.5 years old
Vekic: 110
Konjuh: ???

At 17 years old
Vekic: 65
Konjuh: ???

Nice win for 14 yo Nina Alibalic today in $10K Dubrovnik II Q. She beat the #2 seed Borsanyi (26 yo, CH 701) convincingly, 64 60.

She's got one more match to qualify, against an unranked 15 yo. Good luck!

^ Alibalic won her QR3 match 61 63 to qualify.

This is her third pro tournament ever and she has qualified every time.

In the first two she won a MD match. Here's hoping she can do it again, so that she'll get a ranking. Good luck!

Re: "Say what's on your mind" thread - rant, complain, celebrate or whatever

I just looked at Dubai entry list... there are 7 unranked players in qualifying... and MD cutoff is at 187 (Mrdeza) is that unusual? I wish some of our lower ranked players (Mikulcic, Lekaj, Mekovec) played this, looks like easy points.

Re: "Say what's on your mind" thread - rant, complain, celebrate or whatever

Now that the season is over and Ana K has turned 16, it's time to update the approximate rankings comparison between her and Donna V at various ages:

At 14.5 years old
Vekic: Unranked
Konjuh: Unranked

At 15 years old
Vekic: 820
Konjuh: 865

At 15.5 years old
Vekic: 390
Konjuh: 385

At 16 years old
Vekic: 235
Konjuh: 256

At 16.5 years old
Vekic: 110
Konjuh: ???

At 17 years old
Vekic: 65
Konjuh: ???

It's striking how similar their progress has been

That said, Ana has played more competitive events than Donna at the same age.

I hope none of our players catch a cold playing in Shenzhen winter and then coming to hot Melbourne.

Start of new season is closer and closer..
Lucic already in Australia, Ana in Auckland Ajla on her way to China..
Go girls!

It's possible that we could have 5 in top 100 next year!

Well, you're certainly optimistic

It could happen, but only if everything goes right: Donna and Petra get their groove back, Mirjana has a minor breakthrough and Ana K a major one, and Ajla doesn't have a letdown year.

I don't see Tereza or Vrljic ever in the top 100, nor Savic at this point. The only ones who could surprise are Lisjak and Sprem but only if they're really, truly committed to a comeback, which I seriously doubt.

Am I forgetting anyone?
