After she lost in Makarska 7-5 in 3rd set against on the end finalist of the tournament Ana again had bad luck. In QR1 of WTA Warsaw she played against 3rd seed Kerber and lost 63 06 64. She actually won 6 points more and had 5 BPs more than Kerber.
She keeps on losing to everybody these days. In R1 of Grado 25k, where she's defending SF, she lost to a qualifier (Pliskova, #579) in straight sets. Hard to believe that less than a year ago she was at a career-high ranking of 191. Now she'll drop outside of top300:sad:
It's lucky for her, but her form is also on the rise in the past month or so. She didn't have much of a season this year, with just a few solid results on challengers and a 6 match losing streak between April and June. BTW, she played Ozga once before, 2 years ago in Spain on hard and won easily, but this time it'll be on clay.
In R2, Ana beat Ozga easily, 64 61. With this, she'll move back into the top 300, at ~280-285. Ana is defending only 14 points through mid-November, so she has a good chance to make a big move up the rankings.
Yeah I opened this thread so I don't spam other ones with my bitching. :lol:
I expected more from our girls this week! :(
They all flopped except Mrdeža.
It's especially :o bc they all could have won too, draws were not that bad.
I hope they will have more luck in next tournaments, this week...
Let's hear it for Tereza! She's 17 years old (born in November 1990). According to her ITF file, she was born in Pula but lives in Porec.
She reached her highest rank so far in May 2007, at #738. After that she didn't play for almost a year, until April of this yar (school?) so she lost her...
Another promising Croatian who is gonna make waves I think. :D Felt like making a thread for her. :)
She's only 16 (born Nov 2, 1996), currently ranked 118 in juniors (with a CHR of 94 gained earlier this year).
She's played only 1 tournament so far this year: G1 Czech International Junior...
They are telling she is better than Konjuh, Vekic and Vrljic combined at this age :cheer:
