Croatian Junior Still Going Strong At Australian Open

Croatia maybe left without a player in the Australian Open, but one of its brightest hopes in the Australian Junior Open is still going strong.

Ana Konjuh (15) has just won her 14th match in a row to advance to the 3rd round of the Australian Junior Open in Melbourne. Konjuh, from Dubrovnik, beat Japanese player Mami Adachi 7:6, 6:2.

Konjuh has had a great couple of months, winning tournaments in the U.S including the prestigious Orange Bowl.
