Ajla Tomljanović secured a place in the eight finals of Serbia Ladies Open
Australian tennis player Ajla Tomljanović secured a place in the eighth finals of the Serbia Ladies Open.
The lady born in Zagreb was better than the local representative, Ivana Jorović with 2-0, in sets of 6: 4, 6: 3.
Ajla Tomljanović spoke about how much going to Australia influenced her professional growth and plans, and underscored that playing in the region still had special importance for her.
“I am happy that we are playing in the region and that I can speak in my mother tongue. Next week, another tournament in men’s category will begin here, and I think that’s great,” said 76th top player in the world.
She then shared her impressions about the last year, as well as her plans.
“I feel better and better on the court. It was not easy for me last year, we all had difficult moments, and it was mentally challenging during COVID. Since returning, I needed to work on myself and elements of my game during every match. I’m feeling better and better and I think there is more room for progress. After the break we had, I’m trying to play wherever possible,” Tomljanović explained.
A place in the quarter-finals will go to the winner of the duel between Nina Stojanović (SRB) – Rebecca Peterson (SWE).
