Re: WTA Auckland ( int. event )

Quallies starts on Saturday according to one of the NZ posters. I think it did last year now from memory too. Damn - I could have gone. Nah, not worth it for 2 days.

Re: WTA Auckland ( int. event )

She starts well, winning the first set 6-0. Carly has only made 6 points in the 1st set. Keep it up Misa!

Re: WTA Auckland ( int. event )

Yes! 6-0 6-4 in less than a hour. A bit of a shame that she was broken while serving for the match at 5-2. But a nice start for her. In round 2 she will play Neuza Silva or Julie Ditty. They are playing right now. Hopefully Misa can add some more wins and reach the MD... GL in round 2!

Re: WTA Auckland ( int. event )

Yes well she should have won 6-0 6-1...but ture of the other 3 games she lost, 2 were on Carly's serve - which she didn;t have problems to break to get into a winning position. She still needs to work a bit on the mental side it seems.

But great win and just a pity if Neuza wins that they have to play each other (coz I like Neuza too).

Re: WTA Auckland ( int. event )

Her next opponent is Neuza Silva. She beat Ditty 6-4 6-2. It is the 2nd match on Centre Court. 1st match start at 10am. So around 11.30pm Dutch time.
De MD is also out. Qualifiers face A. Pavlyuchenkova, M. Domachowska, E. Vesnina or C. Wozniacki.

Hopefully it will be getting easier for Misa to stay in the lead and close matches, because it could be quite dangerous to let some players get back in to a match. I think it was important for her to get some wins at the end of last year in Bratislava so she could end her awful year a little bit positive. Now she needs to stay healthy, take one match at a time and I think the results will definitely come again. Well to look on the bright side, she does not have a lot of points to defend this year! She won her first match in June (Birmingham) where she reached round 3, a 1/4 final in 's-Hertogenbosch and a final in Bratislava (Oct.)

Good luck in round 2 Misa!

Re: WTA Auckland ( int. event )

Great that you can sum up Misa's whole year in about 2 sentences.

Obviously hoping that if Misa qualifies she gets Vesnina or Domachowska. Pavly or Wozniacki would be alot tougher.

I wanted the sum up the tournaments where she has few WTA-points to defend. Unfortunately that were only those 3
Well let's just hope we will need a whole lot more sentences to sum up her best results of 2009!
And yes, if she makes the MD, the competition is a lot tougher. First wait and see if she can beat Neuza.
I read you were going to the AO. I am so jealous! Have fun, but I am sure you will. I will be going to 's-Hertogenbosch (and ATP Rotterdam), not quite the same though.

No I know - that's what I meant. It's bad that you (or anyone) can sum up her year in 2 sentences. But already 2009 is starting better. She should be able to beat neuza, but yeah you never know what happens. But she is now back in the top 200.

I was at Rosmalen (and Wimbledon) last year. I will go again this year too. I won't be in NL when Rotter(ing)dam is on though. But I'm moving to Den Haag in April (from Australia)
