61 Mandy first set!

Crucial point was defending three break points at *3-1 0/40

Kevin how did she do this? Must explain later

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Mandy won 61 64!! Just over an hour...so she didn't have to stay out in the heat for too, too long.
Congrats Mandy!! Keep it up!!

Sorry but I wasn't able to follow the score at the end! So happy for her! Finally a win at grand slam again

So deserved coz she was preparing so professionally for this tournament!

And it was important for her mental condition to avoid the choke like against Watson!

Well well done, Mandy

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I think she may have got a little nervous towards the end, but overall it seemed like a good match and win.
Next for her is the winner of Pavlyuchenkova/Pereria.

If she plays Pavs, their match will probably be on a streamed court.

She must have played awesome till 61 40 but 61 64 is still a very good scoreline!

Was so important she was able to withstand the pressure after Carina was coming back with 4 games in a row especially if you remember her match against Watson!

I would prefer Pavs in the second round too, we would have a good chance for a stream and furthermore the heat is an advantage for Mandy!

Pavs leads 76 22 vs Pereira atm she has to struggle a lot what is good for Mandy as well! The last match vs Pereira Mandy was losing but this was on clay last year!

So please let it be Pavs then Mandy wouldn't have the burden to be favourite!

Well I didnt watch much. I watched from 2-0 to 3-1 then couldnt stand the heat and then came back coz I thought she would finish soon when 4-0 up, but I came wrong time to witness the choke thank god she broke back. Pfizenmaier was also there cheering Carina on and also like 70% of the crowd was going for Carina while only a couple of guys was going for Mandy. She played some lovely fh winners towards the end and screamed a "YESS" and jumped on MP

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

In retrospect, it fully paid off for Mandy to play these not so enjoyable ITF tournaments at the end of last year, to get enough ranking points to enter the Australian Open main draw directly.

The qualifications would have been very hard, as her first two tournaments this year have shown. But with direct entry and a lucky draw, she now got to the second round, which will move her back to WTA 87 or so and give her US$45.000 prize money.

She can now play without pressure against Pavlyuchenkova.
