A point away from the top at Tenis Slovenia Masters U16

Eva had tremendous two days in Litija at Triglav Slovenian Masters U16.  In the 1st round she eliminated Karolina Trnkovski by 6:0, 6:2, in the quarterfinals defeated the 4th seeded Nala Kovacic by 6:0, 6:4 and in the semifinals Eva overcame the 2nd seeded Pia Petelinsek by 6:3, 6:3.

The final game in the afternoon could have finished easily by 6:1, 6:2, but loosing the 2nd match point was just too much to stay focused until the end of the game. Therefore the final score 6:1,5:7,1:6 against Kaja made Eva a runner up at the Slovenian Masters U16 2022.
