Re: Mate Pavic
Pavic just won GA doubles title in Osaka (Japan) and played final in singles (lost 4:6, 6:1, 3:6 against his partner, one year older Japanese Uchiyama).
He should be in junior top 10 for the first time (he will be 3rd of his generation).

great, really great!!!
i didn't see that's happed because he played match (actually hole tournament) on completely other part of the worls only 4 days ago. and that was on hard, this is clay. in that situation almost anybody should beat 17 years old unexperienced player.

Re: Mate Pavic
Pavic is on the entry list for the next Futures in Croatia, but he'll probably get a wildcard into the main draw. It's a tough draw, with the cutoff around 500.

Re: Mate Pavic
Mate played Futures tournaments in GRB last week and again this week. He reached R2 both times.

Last week he beat the #7 seed, Blake Strode (#491) in R1 (excellent win!) but then lost to a player in the 800s.

This week he beat a top 40 junior in R1 but then lost to the #7 seed, Chris Eaton (#426; CH #317).

Good point--I missed that!

This week, Mate moves up to a new CH ranking: up 61 spots to #1109. He'll reach a new CH ranking next week too.

Re: Mate Pavic
Mate has been making his way up the rankings nicely. He reached a CH ranking of 773 last week.

This week he's into the QF at Heraklion Challenger. In R1 he crushed the #4 seed Bloemke (#486, CH #302) 62 62. He was less impressive in R2 (needed three close sets to beat #1007 Kosler) but managed to win.

Also, he's at his CH doubles ranking of 211. Not bad for an 18 year old!
