The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

Ági & Patty in doubles


Winter Is Coming

"Fine words." Tyrion was unimpressed. "Words are wind. Who is this bloody savior?"
"A dragon." The cheesemonger saw the look on his face at that, and laughed. "A dragon with three heads."

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

Singles draw is out today I guess .

Ági is sixth seed I think so that means the draw could be tough I really hope she does not get put in the same quarter as Kleybanova, or especially Dulgheru because those are really tough draws. Honestly I worry with her current form and these good players in the draw, defending her title will be way tougher than winning was, but maybe confidence from last year can take her through I suppose.

Blanka was not happy, but Ági needs doubles ranking points rather than playing for fun.

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

Oh, well I have to say I feel sort of sorry for Blanka but it also makes me really happy to see that Ági feels this way!!! She has been pretty lame in doubles lately, so I'm glad to see she wants the match-play, experience, and confidence doubles can bring her .

This is a really good draw, this girl has hardly played for a few years! Ági also has a nice draw to the semifinals I think being in the section of Bacsinszky, but she is in the half of Dulgheru, who is favored to win .

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

The doubles draw is also out! Blanka playing with Golubic .

Anyways, Ági and Schnyder will play Kustova/Tsurenko in the first round. A very winnable match .

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

Well this was never posted yesterday, but Patty/Ági are playing their first match today, on Center Court. It is fourth from 11 local time, after three singles matches .

The match is starting right now .

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

So Ági & Patty lost to Kustova/Tsurenko in doubles 7-6 (4), 3-6, 10-6.

Beyond pathetic. I liked the sounds of this team, but obviously their games do not work together .

Meanwhile, Blanka's match is at 5-all in the first. If they won, that would be kind of funny after Ági was too good for Blanka .

This better be way better than doubles .

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

Ágnes beat Kostanic Tosic 6-3, 6-2 far from impressive tennis, but she played pretty well at times will definitely need to improve leaps and bounds if she is to challenge for the title with players like Dulgheru and Kleybanova though!

Re: The Defending Champion is here, Budapest 2010

Nice score Agi. Although it's pretty funny that Blanka actually won her doubles without her sister, while Agi and Patty managed to lose . Of course Blanka was lucky enough to draw another WC team, but you would have thought Tsurenko and Kustova were also a pretty good draw.

Good luck in the next round.
