WTA Memphis Q ( international event )



After this week's dissapointing loss against former top20 player Daniilidou, Misa will play Qualification for WTA Memphis. She got a Wildcard

First up is Carly Gullickson ( WTA 144 ). Misa defeated her in Auckland this year 6-0/6-4. But things are a bit different now. Misa made her comeback this week after an ankle injury.

If Misa wins against Gullickson, she will have to play Dubois or Tatishvilli for a place in the MD.

Re: WTA Memphis Q ( international event )

That wasn't easy, but she won
Next up: Stephanie Dubois (CAN, 114) or Anna Tatishvili (GEO, 152).
The winner of that match qualifies.
Qualifiers can meet Caroline Wozniacki, Alla Kudryavtseva, Lucie Hradecka or Stephanie Cohen-Aloro.

Good luck in the next round Misa!

Re: WTA Memphis Q ( international event )

If she has to play Steph, I fear it could be a quick match - unless Steph is very tired. First time I saw Misa play live was against Steph at AO 2005 quallies. She won is straight sets I believe 4 and 3 or similar.

Re: WTA Memphis Q ( international event )

Misa plays the 5th match on Centercourt today. That will be at the end of the evening/night in Holland.
Dubois and Tatishvili play their match also today.

Dubois #114

Stephanie has been ranked for a couple of years just outside the top100. Last year she was a top100 player for a couple of weeks, peaking at 95. Now she is ranked #114.
Stephanie played Midland 75K last week where she reached the quarterfinals, losing to a upcoming Russian named Rodina.
This year Steph played qualified for the Australian Open. Defeating Ferguson, Kucova and Ula Radwanska. In the MD she lost against top30 player Sugiyama 0-6/6-7.
Misa leads the head to head 1-0. 6-4/6-3 at the AO in 2005



Tatishvili #152

Anna is a young Georgian that lives in the USA. This week she has reached her career high of #152. Anna has a good game but she hasn't been able to put it all together. She has received some MD WC's for Miami in the past. In 2007 she lost against Krajicek in the first round 2-6/6-7(2). Therefore Krajicek leads the head to head 1-0.
2009 hasn't been very succesful so far for the Georgian. She lost in Hobart and the AO ( both qualifying events ) against Czink and Sprem in 2 quick sets.

Re: WTA Memphis Q ( international event )

I think Steph was probably quite tired, but still nice win! Now let's hope she gets Cohen in the MD.

You were right, it was a quick match , and probably because Stephanie was still tired. It is a bit of a shame, that they scheduled that this way, but I guess it helped Misa. No Cohen unfortunately

1st round MD: Misa vs. Alla Kudryavtseva (7) (RUS, 64)

They had to schedule it this way because Steph was still playing midland on Friday, and so if she lost there (which she did), she is allowed to play her 1st r (and 2nd if she wins, which she did) on the Saturday.

Hmm Alla really hasn;t played well yet this year - i saw her in Hobart & AO and she lost this week in Midland to Begu 1 and 2 or something, so it's not *too* bad. Hopefully it can be at least a close match.

Re: WTA Memphis Q ( international event )

That explains it. I saw the results of Midland, but somehow it had not sunk in
Alla has not had the best start of the season. But it is so hard to predict the matches of Misa. Could be an interesting match though. Come on Misa!

Totally off topic, but what a final in R'dam: Rafa vs Murray!

Re: WTA Memphis Q ( international event )

It's a pity for me though, because I like Alla since Hobart this year - I got to meet her there and she's really nice and funny. But of course I hope Misa will win. Yeah, I have given up predicting Misa's matches now.

Yes, nice final of Rottingdam (yes, I know I spelt it wrong ). I hope Murray will win.
