02 ... 17. Karolina Sprem
03 ... 18. Silvija Talaja
04 ... 32. Jelena Kostanic Tosic
04 ... 32. Mirjana Lucic
06 ... 42. Petra Martic
07 ... 83. Sanda Mamic
08 ... 95. Ivana Lisjak
09 ... 117. Maja Palaversic
10 ... 121. Donna Vekic

She overtook Popadic (CH ranking: 182), Mrdeza (181), Ancic (159), Tomljanovic (145), Pandzic (136) and Ozegovic (131).

I've updated the list of players representing Croatia who have a career-high ranking in the top 200. Players in bold currently have a WTA ranking. Let me know if you spot any mistakes.

01 ... 4. Iva Majoli
02 ... 17. Karolina Sprem
03 ... 18. Silvija Talaja
04 ... 32. Jelena Kostanic Tosic
04 ... 32. Mirjana Lucic
06 ... 42. Petra Martic
07 ... 83. Sanda Mamic
08 ... 88. Donna Vekic
09 ... 95. Ivana Lisjak
10 ... 117. Maja Palaversic
11 ... 131. Nika Ozegovic
12 ... 136. Jelena Pandzic
13 ... 145. Ajla Tomljanovic
14 ... 157. Tereza Mrdeza
15 ... 159. Sanja Ancic
16 ... 182. Lana Popadic
17 ... 188. Darija Jurak
18 ... 191. Ana Vrljic
19 ... 193. Ani Mijacika

Donna has moved up to #8. I imagine she'll overtake #7 Mamic soon.

Tereza has moved up to #14. She might go up to #13 but I'm not confident she can go any higher :scared:

Goles and Sasak stopped competing in 1990 and 1987 respectively, so technically never played for CRO (they played for YUG instead).

Muric never reached top 200 in singles; her highest ranking was 204.

I've added Nadin Ercegovic to my list; it looks like she reached a singles CH ranking of 61 while playing for CRO.

New CH ranking for Ajla this week: #85. She takes over the #1 Croatian spot from Donna, who dropped to #86.

Ajla will probably get a new CH ranking next week, when her results from this week's $25K are counted.
