I follow that Challenger events regularly and one name that seems to pop up a lot is a player from Bosnia named Mervana Jugic-Salkic. Any information on her?

This girl seems to go far in every tournament she enters. Her countrywoman, Adriana Basaric seems to have disappeared though.

Just great to see new talent starting to rise from that country. From one of the most war-torn Nations in Europe, it's just nice to see young Bosnian players having a chance at succeeding.

Sounds like she developed late as a player given the fact of where she is from. Better late than other though.

Looks she is on the brink of her first WTA event.

Its good to see Bosnian tennis players coming up. I like the fact that tennis is expanding and getting players from more countries. I look forward to seeing her play when i get a chance.

Mervana stopped playing because of financial problems as someone said. Now she's back with great success and is training with Drago Diklic (ex-coach of Majoli) and her doubles partner Darija Jurak (another one is having a great run this year)

I am glad that someone post about her, I did post some of her scores and some informations but no one was iterested. So thank you very much Jakeev for posting this. :worship: :wavey:

She is doing great in the rankings because just last year she was in 460 and her ranking now is

162 (184) JUGIC-SALKIC, MERVANA 185.00

I am really happy for her and that someone from my country, from Bosnia is doing well.

Jurak is actually Croatian though right?

Mervana is now in the quarters of a 50k in Italy which I guess equals another 50k quarterfinal showing she had in August.

I had mentioned another Bosnian player early in this thread, Adriana Basaric.

Is she still playing or did she give the game up?
