Anne Kremer got main draw WC that year and Mandy was ranked outside top 200 at that time.

Here is 18 year old Mandy at her first doubles title ITF Napoli 10k (2004). She didn't change much, apart from dying her hair.

She hasn't had any particularly stand-out WTA results which come to mind aside from Bad Gastein and USO...
I think there was Bad Gastein, Baku QF, Biarritz final, Cali final and Uso are her standout results for 2012. Wait I think Cali may have been 2011. The USO reuslt really lifted her ranking high, but it didnt last long

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

She was 18 years old as that tournament has been played in March 2004. It was also in Luxembourg 2004 when she lost to Krajicek at last qualy round.

She looks as young as she did 8 years before! So she should play much longer than just till 31!

Its not just about looking Mandy wpuld be #1 if it was. It will depend on how her physical situation is. Hopefully she will love the game too much to retire

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I just looked it up, she won her first doubles title at Napoli (with Elke Clijsters who is the other girl in second pic). Her first singles title was ITF 10k Zadar 2004.

But her looking might also express her physical state

I don't know. Maybe she will be playing today in Metz but I don't think so because her last match for Paris seemed to be the last one within this competition. But I will have a look at it.

If source on twitter is right Mandy will play today Vekic! I just hope she'll play a good match but I am scared she's a bit overplayed in the last time. Come on Mandy! When will she charge her batteries? I'm really not sure about it although she usually has a good constitution.

She will definitely play. She was beating Vekic last time but Vekic was getting better after her slump, had a win in the French league. So I hope Mandy can withstand.

Mandy is 64 20 ahead against Donna Vekic. This would be the second win in a row against her
