Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Yuliandy didn't seem to fire up today....close match but the big points went to their opponents....

How was Yuliya serving? Mandy's backhand?

Keep dry...

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Have found it:

1 29 Juli Grasshopper ZH Hörnli Kreuzlingen
1 29 Juli Luzern Lido Locarno
1 29 Juli Stade-Lausanne Mail NE
2 31 Juli Grasshopper ZH Luzern Lido
2 31 Juli Locarno Mail NE
2 31 Juli Hörnli Kreuzlingen Stade-Lausanne
3 2 August Grasshopper ZH Stade-Lausanne
3 2 August Luzern Lido Mail NE
3 2 August Hörnli Kreuzlingen Locarno
4 3 August Stade-Lausanne Luzern Lido
4 3 August Mail NE Hörnli Kreuzlingen
4 3 August Locarno Grasshopper ZH
5 5 August Stade-Lausanne Locarno
5 5 August Mail NE Grasshopper ZH
5 5 August Hörnli Kreuzlingen Luzern Lid

So in 4 days she has to play in Europe.
After the interclubs she has one week off to August 11.
Then she will play Woking August 11-18
In the following week USO qualies will be starting.
Is it right so far?

Its a tough schedule once more for her.
Hope for her she will get it well done.

Edit: Realise that the final round will be at August 9/10. Mail NE is defending champion so Mandy has probably to play there.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I have arrived home now. I just saw some parts of the match.

Before the first set 2-2, they were playing in the 3rd court.
Everything was OK. I think it was just a start, so they may not be in form.

Then it rained heavily. I talked and had a rest with my friend.
When I opened WTA/ATP live, I realized their match were moved in the indoor court.
Indoor courts have no seats. So we were not allowed to enter.
So I went upstairs to watch their game. At this time, they lost their tiebreak.

The second set, I saw the match.
Group Chuang always played the ball to Mandy's backhand. It worked well.
Mandy's backhand was out of form again today...
Yuliya's state was worse. So many return hitting were out.
And her volley didn't work well, either.
She used some topspin to adjust herself, but the opponent returned winners directly.
She said something to herself, but it didn't work.

Honestly, Mandy's state was great except her banckhand.
Her forehand hitting was heavy and powerful. Group Chuang can't play against at all.
It was a little pity they couldn't go ahead.

Good luck to her next season.

Upstairs, I saw the match out of the building through glass.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Well, Mandy does not have to play all matches. Many, especially top players, play only one or two matches for their club.

Thank you SurfingPikachu! Good to see Mandy was in a good state and her forehand is working well but I'm a bit worried about her backhand! I guess the reason might be that the courts in Nanchang are quite fast so Mandy is a bit late for hitting her backhand? Hope she gets control over this.

What a construction with the glass top! It must be very hot inside.

Hope you can enjoy the tournament though without Mandy's playing.

OK let's wait when she will play. There will be a live score at tennis ticker. I think she will enjoy to play there coz she likes it to play in a team with her friend Parmentier. But of course the change to clay isn't optimal to get used to hard court. Hope for some wins though

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

But she likes fast courts like Bogota and NY because she can hide her backhand

On clay her backhand was working better though. I just think she needs some time and matches to get used to hard courts. Remember the match against Stephens, backhand was not only just hidden.

Plus the main reason is her physical state that wasn't at its best in Nanchang. But to play a solid BH she must be fit.
