BOMBSHELL: Mikaelian and Casanova giving it another try??!!

It's ITF time again in Switzerland. Since Zurich is gone, we have only 10K's to offer

At 10K Lenzerheide, a prominent name is in the draw: Marie-Gaiane Mikaelian, former #33, 26 years old.
She stormed throught the qualifying easily. She wants to give the tennis career another try.

Myriam Casanova, former #45, played a 50K tournament in Germany last year, reaching the SF (l. to Zahlavova Strycova). After this, Myri decided to call it a career, because her father didn't wanna accompany her on tour anymore..!
She played in the 2nd league in Switzerland, easily dominating all her matches...

You have to know, that Myri is from my small village, counting only 1500 people. I went to play tennis tonight, and I lost the second set to a guy I've never lost more than four games, because I had to watch her play. She played with a Golovin look-a-like and the level was incredible. They talked English and then I found out: this girl was Slovenian Dalila Jakupovic, #368. They practised about an hour (playing balls I've not seen in 6 WTA tennis matches today) and then a match which took only 50 minutes because Myri dominated it: 6-0, 6-0

If she only wants to play 2nd league, why does she practise with #368??? I think, she will come back. One who is in my IC team, is a good friend of hers. I gotta ask him about this...

(Unfortunately I didn't have my cam with me )

^ I watched 6 matches today on live stream, and these two were definitely more interesting, but the match wasn't that thrilling, as Casanova didn't give Jakupovic any chance..!

I've seen Vesnina playing GS final level tennis during practice. Practice matches really don't mean anything, every player will tell you that.

Hantuchova once stated she was breadsticking the likes of Henin and Mauresmo in practice.

Re: BOMBSHELL: Mikaelian and Casanova giving it another try??!!

She better comes back Myriam

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I heard the same

Re: BOMBSHELL: Mikaelian and Casanova giving it another try??!!

it was really odd to see myriam come back, play that 50K tournament in germany last year, reach the SF and then .... nothing else.

good luck to MGM!

Jakupovic might be ranked 368, but in reality she's much worse

What's the name of your town?
