She will have a new CHR next week (around 610).

This girl is doing better than ANY Croatian female player of her generation (2001 & younger).

With no wild cards received - unlike Ruzic who had 4 professional events and 4 wild cards.

With no federation support, "big-Croatian-hope" hyping bla-bla-bla, sponsors, covered travelling to Japan & Australia etc.

She deserved each & every ranking point of her with her own hard work.

As for the match mentioned - it is just one match. Sometimes it is happened - it is tennis. When Natasha Zvereva lost to Steffi Graf in Wimby final 0:6, 0:6, she was not going to commit suicide, she did not even suddenly become a bad player.

As for this particular match - Oliynykova had 10 break points and 0% realization, with Kolodziejova 8 BPs / 6 of them converted. The fact that O.O. had those 10 BPs tell that she is not THAT bad. Yes, Kolodziejova was better that day (btw she won the whole tournament without dropping a set, winning the final over Masarova, junior Grand Slam winner), but if it were like 3&3, nobody says "OMG, Help" etc.

First of all Zvereva lost in French open final 6-0 6-0, not in Wimbledon.
Of course such scoreline may happen, for example Darija Jurak beat Errani on clay 6-0 6-1.
But then nobody was pretending that she was second coming of christ.

O-M-G
She is the only player without support of her federation. She is the only player who struggle to find financing for her career.
Preach the lord.

Ok, RG - does not matter.

There is a huge difference between "struggle" and "unfairly treated". As far as I know, O.O. is NOT struggling now. But that does not eliminate the fact she is unfairly treated by Croatian Tennis Association... and this is done by HTS with a purpose of killing her professional career.

Till the end of 2019, she used to be the highest Croatian WTA-ranked U18 player for 2 years in a row. Can you please explain how this player has NOT received a wild card into $60k in Zagreb, her hometown? Even into Q, where WC players from Croatia were Matea Mamic or Monika Dedaj (have you ever heard about them)?

How this player has NEVER received a single wild card from HTS for almost 3 years of playing in pro tour, with multiple titles and finals won, while Ruzic got 4 wild cards for 4 tournaments played?

When Croatian Tennis Association distributed charity funds (donations!!!) from "The Night of Tennis" - not even their own funds, but public DONATIONS! - how it is happened that players like Sara Svetac or Alen Bill got those money, but Oliynykova, Krznaric and Ajdukovic not? What was criteria of it?

I am happy to know her & her family personally and help with some things I can (equipment contracts etc.).

No, she is not "the second something of somebody", as you wrote. She is just a player who builds her tennis story with her own efforts - slowly but surely. She deserved much respect for that.

But... you know, I enjoy to see how this girl performing better than "HTS sweethearts" like Ruzic or Kalender, stuffed with all possible resources, money (part of which are not their deserved money, but funds de-facto stolen from Oliynykova, Krznaric, Ajdukovic etc.), coaches etc. As most people, I like "Cinderella" stories :))). So I wish Cinderella to become a Princess onr day.
