Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Nina Wickmayer withdrew, seeds reshuffle, playing Mona Barthel instead tommorow NB 17.30.

Another german who hasn't won much lately. I would say winnable if the home pressure doesn't get to Mandy.

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Hmm, Barthel is so hot and cold now...if her serve is off (which it generally is lately), Mandy has a good chance.

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Nearly missed the start of the match coming in from my golf round. Good thing Hradecka and Paszek took their time.

As usual Mandy were quick out of the gate, albeit with a little help from Barthel she played fairly decent in the first set which she could have won just as easily. Shortly in to the second set I and everybody else in the room knowing Mandy saw the writing on the wall. She fell absolutely flat.

After a match like this I have a few things to let of my chest:

Court coverage:
She plays really far from the baseline, I mean, she couldn’t get any further away if she drove. She does show a clean pair of heels but that is a lot of ground to cover back there. I don’t know if it is her full western and the big swing that makes her think she needs the extra time or it is just too much clay court time.

The serve:
Every time she served Barthel in the forehand she went for it and hit a lot of winners, and yet Mandy kept serving there. I simply don’t know why she did that. And btw., did them 3 foot faults play in her mind for a bit?

Coaching:
I heard afterwards that her coach told her to stop creating angles and play safe down the middle or back cross court. What a spanner ! If you got a game based on a really good forehand like Mandy what is the point of playing no-risk down the middle. You have got to be Wozniacki to play a retriever game like that. If she wants to control her weapons she has to trust she can set them up creating the point using angles.

There is no doubt the girl can play tennis, we have all seen it on her best days. But I don’t think she has got the right coaching, in fact I and the people sat around me thinks he is no good tactically. She desperately needs a new one, and if no one else will, I think I could persuade someone to scrape a few quid together for the cause, ehhh… including myself of course. Luxembourgers love it when foreigners appreciate and support their locals. It gives a lot of credit.

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Zum Oktoberfest an der Isar.
If she can keep away from the Bierzelten there is another opportunity to go far in a tournament.

The draw is certainly favourable until Jovanovski in the semi. Nobody inside the top 100 before that. Pliskova first up.

If she doesn't make the final she can always go and watch FC Bayern win at the Allianz Arena on sunday.

Auf geht's Mandy!

I suspect she has a fairly basic sponsor deal with Wilson. Not a lot more than bespoke racquets + free clothing and a (too) small check.

Wilson doesn't do much in clothing compared to the giants. I guess the focus in on the ball striking equipment. So they probably dont care if she wear the older stuff.

Personally I think she could be playing in a bin liner and still look the part.
