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 ranking.

She's now back in action and seems to be playing well. Last month, she reached the SF at the $10K in Mostar and the final at the $10K in Budva. This week, she's playing at the $10K in Torino. She qualified easily, winning both her qualie matches 60 60. The best part is that yesterday in the main draw, she won her first-round match against the #2 seed, Maria Irigoyen (#251 in the world), very easily: 61 61. Very impressive! Given that result, her next match, against Nancy Rustignoli (#819; never heard of her), should be very winnable.

With her first-round win yesterday, she'll be able to re-enter the rankings at around 860. Hopefully she'll keep winning this week and move up even higher than that.

Best of luck, Tereza!

She's in the semis of Torino:bounce:

With these points she'll be around #795.

Is SE into MD available on 10k tourneys also - if so, she can get one for Sarajevo if she gets to the finals here?

Her next oponent is some Italian girl ranked around #540, Giulia Gatto-Monticone. She's 3 years older, with a career-high singles of #485.

Good luck Tereza:wavey:

Retired from semis after trailing 0-3:sad:

Hope it's not a serious injury and that she'll still play Sarajevo.

Just read on sportnet.hr that it was a back injury which started during practice. Good thing is that it's not a hand problem, cause that's what kept her away for months last year.

Tereza got an SE to Sarajevo main draw:banana:

Not the best draw though - 5th seed Balogova of Slovakia with a ranking of 675 and a career high of 585. Not unbeatable, but it could've been better.

Good luck:bounce:

Beat Balogova 6:2 6:2:worship:

Now plays an unranked local girl, Mujezinovic, so I'm guessing she can get to QF and a clash with the top seed.

Good luck Tereza:bounce:

Tereza is on fire! She beat top-seeded Urbancic easily, 62 61. In the semis she plays Zorica Petrov (#933; I've never heard of her). That's a winnable match for Tereza.

In her last four tournaments (all $10K's), Tereza has reached one final (Budva) and three SF's (Mostar, Torino and now Sarajevo). During that time she has only lost two sets (67 to Krstajic, ranked #348; and 46 to Quercia, #487). With the way she's playing it won't be long at all until Tereza starts playing the $25K's.

With this result, she'll re-enter the rankings around #735 right after Wimbledon. If she reaches the final, she'll be around #720.

This girl could be for real, if you know what I mean. Of course, she's still on 10k's so it's very early for predictions, but her results seem promising - reminds me of a certain someone who played 10k's as an unranked player this time last year, and is a top150 player as we speek:)

Anyway, Tereza is 8th in the qualy list for 10k Cremona next week, but with the semis I think she'll get an SE if she decides to play. The question is, however, what energy will be left in her after 3 qualy rounds and two consecutive semis, which is like 11 matches in 2 weeks:eek:

Of course, good luck today Tereza:wavey:

Tereza beat Petrov. It shouldn't have been so close but at least she won; the score was 75 76. In the final she plays the #4 seed, Kajtazovic. If she wins, Tereza will re-enter the rankings at around #690.

Good luck, Tereza!
