Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Yes, that retweet was not very classy.

Here's a short report on the tournament day:

Gabriela Dabrowski and Mandy Minella to Meet in Women’s Pro Classic Final

Quote:
Following the the second Singles Semifinal match, No. 2 seed Mandy Minella of Luxemburg ddemolished American Allie Kiick in straight sets 6-0, 6-0 in less than hour.

“I felt really good out there today and I am really happy that I won because it was an important match for me,” said No. 2 seed Mandy Minella. “After today, I have now earned enough points to get directly into the Main Draw of the Australian Open, today was a big win.”

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I don't think AOMD is good for Mandy just so she can get destroyed where at least in Qualies she can earn some points And she can still not get it as Dubai and Sharm are still to come

First of all it is a financial question for she gets much more money for just participating first round AO MD than she would earn for AO qualifying. For Mandy throughout important, look how much she's travelling.

And of course she can have some wins there. Remember the US Open. She's competitive with so many players and she won't get a Serena first in every draw. She just has to believe in it. It was important for her confidence to dominate her opponents on itf so the next step is to imagine doing it on wta level either. There are so many players who aren't any better than her. Furthermore it's always a question of being in form or not.

But has she already been qualified? In the live ranking she's now on #108, this should be sufficient for her but there are some tournaments left so that some players behind may pass her. But I also hope she has the right overview of her ranking. So if she gets the win today her ranking will be #105.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

The Grand Slams now offer very high gains even for first round losses, while ITF tournaments offer the same amounts as 10 years ago. So participating in the Grand Slams is important financially for players around the 100th ranking.

There was an interesting article in Forbes recently:

How The 92nd-Ranked Tennis Player In The World Earns A Comfortable Living

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Exactly right. Every player aims to make the maindraw of slams for exactly that reason, it helps to fund your season. Congrats on reaching the final in such impressive style Mandy!
