Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

On www.xeniaknoll.ch

She will play 60K Andrezieux-Bouthéon: doubles with Mertens plus maybe singles.
After that, St.Petersburg is planned next.

Finally
I hope she can find back to the success of last year!!

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

Glad she is better
Shane she didn't come to Australia
Considering the challenger is a week into the Austrailian, seems odd she didn't start the year at a grand slam.... Real shame

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

She played the last WTA tournament of the year. What was wrong with her?

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

She has had some serious hip problems. First, she was told that she would not be able to play at all in 2017 and need surgery. Then she tried some new kind of therapy and can now finally praxtise again.
In mid-December, she posted that she could train for 2 hours that day, for the first time in more than two months. No wonder she was in kind of a slump.

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

It's good news that she doesn't have to have surgery. Hope she can get back into the groove quickly.

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

Won the first round with Kuncikova (who seems to have split from Stuchla ) in a match tie-breaker by 4-6, 6-1, [11-9].

Glad they won, I am not really surprised by the rusty start.

Beat Robson/Schoofs 6-4, 6-7(3), [10-4]

I wondered about that, too

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

Expected win , Xenia needs to stick to doubles, ditch the singles career.

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

Was terrible today, many DFs

And the forehand slice technique is nowhere near as good as Niculescu's

Looks really amateurish at times

For someone this tall and thick you'd expect her to serve better?!?

She's decent at net

Re: Xenia Knoll announces her comeback.

She has always been horrible with DFs. At one ITF tournament, she reached the singles final, hitting more than 15 DFs in every match

Her first serve used to be quite strong though.


Baby steps for Xenia who got her first win at a Premier tournament today:

(2)Jurak/Knoll def. Kichenok×2 6-3, 4-6, [10-6]

QF vs. Flipkens/Vekić or Kerkhove/Marozava. If she finds back to some good rhythm, they should have a chance here!
