Luka Belic cheering thread

Let's hear it for Luka--he won his first pro tournament this week ($10K in BiH)!

R1: def. Carl BERGMAN (SWE) 6-1 6-1
R2: def. Henrik NORFELDT (SWE) 6-3 6-0
QF: def. Vilim VISAK (CRO) 7-6(3) 3-6 6-2
SF: def. Petar JELENIC (CRO) 6-4 6-4
F: def. Juan-Miguel SUCH-PEREZ (ESP) 6-3 6-7(2) 6-3

According to the ITF website, Luka was born in Umag, resides in Kopar and is just 19 years old (born in October 1988). He had some success as a junior, reaching the Wimbledon QF and US Open SF in 2006, then turned pro in 2007. Here are his year-end pro rankings:

End of 2005: 1497
End of 2006: 1036
End of 2007: 763

In 2008, he had been moving sideways in the rankings until this week. This win, though, will give him a new career-high ranking of around 680--and hopefully lots of confidence.

Another Croatian youngster to root for. Good luck, Luka!
