Re: ~Luxembourg Tennis~

Interview with Mandy Minella in the newspaper Luxemburger Wort:

In the past months Mandy Minella has experienced a provisional highlight of her career. The 25 year old could advance from world rank 241 to 136, with a high rank at 128.

Furthermore Minella has won two ITF tournaments (Lutz/USA and Vaihingen/GER) and stormed into third round of the US Open as a qualifier. Nevertheless she seems less satisfied with her past season as one could expect.

Q: What do you consider your most overwhelming and what your less beautiful moments while looking back at the year 2010? Would you do several things differently?
Mandy: I have definitely learnt that I have to organize my season better. I've noticed that I need a little break from time to time because my body is sometimes showing signs of exhaustion Because of keeping on playing during such phases I couldn't realize good results during several weeks. I will take a break the week after the Fed Cup in the upcoming year for instance. In the past I've made the mistake to travel to the next tournaments immediately after the tough Fed Cup encounters.

I have to improve my grass game too. This season I haven't played one bad match on grass but still couldn't get victories on that surface. Of course there have also been positive moments: I'm satisfied with my level of play which I've reached during the past months. The results have been good and without a doubt I can look back at my best season.

Q: You are getting closer to your aim, the entry into the top 100 of the world. What are your feelings about this?
Mandy: I am not impatient and I won't content myself with reaching the top 100. I want more and will have new aims but first of all I need to enter top 100.

Q: The preparation for the upcoming year is in full progress. What have you worked on during the off season?
Mandy: I have approached the physical preparation differently compared to the past. The stamina and power training have been the major parts. I have built on muscle mass in order to get a more solid game. I need more power than a smaller player in order to get in the right shot position while being in motion.

Q: How does your schedule for next season look like?
Mandy: I will fly to New Zealand on Sunday and will play the ASB Classic in Auckland (220.000 $). After that I will play the Moorilla Hobart International (220.000 $) and the Australian Open (9,2 Million $).

Re: ~Luxembourg Tennis~

Mandy's Australian Open qualy draw:

[4] Z. Kucova vs. Iijima
Irigoyen vs. Beygelzimer
Georgatou vs. Rodionova
O'Brien vs. [16] Minella

It's a winnable draw I think. Mandy needs to find some form though.

Anne's Australian Open qualy draw:

[7] Pivovarova vs. Sumner
Albanese vs. E. Bogdan
Bovina vs. Daniilidou
Kremer vs. [23] Bratchikova

Tough opponents awaiting in possible second qualy round with either Bovina or Daniilidou. At least first round is doable.


Good luck!

Q1: (16) Mandy def. Katie O'Brien 3:6 7:5 6:3

She came back from 3:6 2:5 and then 0:2 30:40! Great fight!

Next opponent is Arina Rodionova who she beat in US Open qualy last year.
