I am happy and sad for her either. Happy because she has another solid top 100 win although Vekic in the end of the match was obviously a bit injured. But this doesn't do down Mandy's performance as well coz it happened in the last end of the match as sources on twitter told.

But I'm sad too because I think Mandy would have loved it to win this championship together with her team. The manager was praising her for giving all she had for her team last week!

But all in all Mandy had a great competition with good wins over Alize Lim, Mayr and Vekic. She likes it to be responsible for her team as number one I guess

She can be that satisfied with the last weeks at all and look forward to South Africa and Australia. Also the matches with Kvitova, Stephens, even Serena and Woz this year were bringing a long term effect on her game! Pls correct me and bring me down to earth but I really think she's made an important step within her career!

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Interview in English with Mandy from Captiva (short part at 0:30, longer one at 4:27)

Her attitude is very positive!

This is not that surprising

Mandy announced it early after her win in Captiva. She was just very clever and predicted her ranking.

I like her positive attitude. She had a difficult season and was going down in the ranking. But she never gives up. She entered every itf tournament after Luxemburg to get into AO MD! And she was improving from match to match till she had enough points. So determined! This was the reason I was so fond of the way she was winning Captiva. There was a big pressure and she was delivering.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I know it wasn't suprising. I was just stating how close it was. She made it by one ranking.

Yeah one ranking! She's just smart. For me it wasn't that clear because I was not sure about who takes a protected ranking or not. Very important for her anyway for she has the financial basis for the next season. Even if she loses first round (what I don't hope and expect of course) she will get a lot of money (well deserved! ). She needs it for all her travelling.

Is she already in South Africa training with Chanelle Scheepers? Hope they have some fun down there besides training too!

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I've found a really nice interview on RTL.lu with Mandy. There are two highlights you should watch even if you don't understand Letzebuergesch btw. her mother language

At ca. 11:00 she is asked if she is happy about to be elected into the top 10 of the most beautiful woman tennis players by the magazine L'Equipe - look at her reaction, you don't need to understand what she's saying, just watching her

She's answering in the third person of herself of course she's happy as every woman is happy about receiving compliments.

At 20:50 she is asked if a tennis player who is travelling a lot can build up a relationship and she gets a bit shy inquiring if this question is meant more in a sense of friendship or intimate ...

http://tele.rtl.lu/emissiounen/live-...e/3003521.html

In German we have the word "bezaubernd" to describe the way she's answering ...

I'm also worried about South Africa, it's a dangerous location for white people if you're at the wrong places. But I think that Chanelle is experienced enough so we don't have to be worried at all.

Lol Mandy is sleeping at the gym, I always thought she's so diligent
