Re: Arantxa Rus

Hopefully she can regain some kind of form for the upcoming tournaments. I was at the match last Tuesday, expecting a win for Arantxa. But it didn't turn out that way Tamaela was playing really well, best I've seen her play since she made her cameback. She was hitting quite a lot of winners.

What did surprise me was that she looked even skinnier then she did in December when I saw her play for the last time. I'd expected her to put some muscle on since then.

Aran will play a 100k challenger in Sofia next week (14th of September).

In the week of the 21st of September she is on the entry list (MD) of another big challenger (100k+H): Saint Malo.

Both clay court tournaments and she is in the MD of these 2 tournaments (nr 12 in MD at the moment).

Re: Arantxa Rus

Yes, I just saw that.

Tashkent??
She would be in the MD and the it's a weak field with no top50 players.

But where is Aran then?
Hopefully not injured, which happens to too much of the Dutch players

Re: Arantxa Rus

guess her whole game is a bit injured at the moment? Maybe she's regrouping for a while, getting used to the new/one trainer/coach etc. ? Haven't heard or read about an injury?

Weblog Arantxa Rus

ALMERE - De afgelopen zomer heb ik veel toernooien en dus veel wedstrijden getennist. Tijdens toernooien heb je niet echt de tijd om te werken aan je fysiek. Daarom heb ik samen met mijn trainers besloten dat het beter is om een paar weken in mezelf te investeren, zodat het zich over een tijdje uitbetaalt tijdens toernooien. Dat is de reden waarom ik nu een trainingsblok heb ingelast.

Ik tennis nu ’s ochtends zo’n 2,5 uur, om vervolgens na de lunch aan mijn lichaam te werken. Dan moet je denken aan krachttraining in de fitnesszaal, maar ook conditie opbouwen met rennen door het bos, sprinttraining of aan de slag met een medicinebal. De eerste week was ik behoorlijk moe van al die fysieke inspanning en had ik dus wel last van spierpijn.

Het afgelopen weekend heb ik genoten van de Davis Cup, waar Nederland tegen Frankrijk speelde voor een plekje in de Wereldgroep. Wat me opviel was de sfeer. Na elk punt zingt, joelt en juicht het publiek. Ik speel nu zelf een paar jaar Fed Cup, maar dat is niet te vergelijken. Wat wel hetzelfde is is het groepsgevoel en de goede sfeer. Het is lekker als teamgenoten je aanmoedigen tijdens een wedstrijd.

Ik ben helaas wat teruggezakt op de wereldranglijst, maar mijn doel van dit jaar blijft de top-100 halen en daarmee rechtstreekse kwalificatie afdwingen voor de Australian Open, begin 2010. Om dat te bereiken speel ik in oktober vier grote Challengers in Frankrijk.
The past summer I played a lot of tournaments and therefore lots of matches. Though during tournaments you don't really have time to work on your physical. That's why I decided together with my trainers that it's better to invest a few weeks in myself now, so that it will turn out positively in the coming tournaments. This is why I'm doing just a training period at the moment.

Nowadays I'm playing 2,5 hrs of tennis in the morning, to continue with working on my body after lunch. You should think of powertraining, stamina training by running in the forest, sprinttraining or working with a medicine-ball. After the first week I was already pretty tired due to all this physical exercising so I had some muscle pain.

Past weekend I enjoyed Davis Cup, the atmosphere struck me as surprising. After every points the audience cheers and sings! I'm playing Fed Cup for a few years now, but it's not to be compared with each other. The group feeling and nice atmosphere are similar though. It's great to have your teammates cheer for you while playing a match.

Unfortunately I dropped a bit on the rankings, but my goal still is breaking the top 100 before the end of the year to secure a direct main draw entry at the Australian Open. To achieve this I'm playing 4 big challengers in France in October.
