Don't know it yet. But it would be great to give us a small report of the match if you watch it

I think I read somewhere that they are Luxembourgers living in New York, but I could be wrong. There are many Luxembourg tennis fans who go to Roland Garros every year (Paris is just 3 hours away), but the US Open is a more exotic trip indeed.

Here's a photo from 2013 I found:

Yes, that is them. The gentleman in red is named Michel and has a credential this year. Can you link me the article?

Giorgi has a foot injury. Too bad for Mandy.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

It's unfortunate a player isn't given time to find another partner.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I think this is Mandy's schedule for the upcoming month

September 8: Tashkent (MD)
September 15: Seoul (QD)
September 22: Wuhan?
September 29: Beijing?
October 6: Linz? not in Tianjin or Osaka
October 13: Luxembourg (most likely MDWC)
October 20: Maybe 100k in France or 50k in Canada/US
October 27: France/US/Canada 50k
November 3: Captiva?
November 10: Dubai?

Shes losing SF points from Tashkent and in November will lose her winning points from Captiva, so I would think Mandy will try and play almost every week to regain some points and try for AO MD

Goodness, a lot of tournaments....

Pity about the doubles, almost $14000 per team even if R1 loss....

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

For a player who risks losing in the first rounds, it's normal to enter a tournament every week. At least there is not so much time zone and surface hopping involved as in the recent months.

After her US Open quali loss and the doubles exit, Mandy will now return to Luxembourg where she can prepare for the busy autumn. Tashkent and Seoul are being mentionned in this Tageblatt article (which is mainly about Gilles Muller):

Going to be tough weeks for her. So much to defend. If she doesnt get into AO MD it will be getting difficult to defend her second round there.

Its a real harsh loss of money for her. This was an expensive trip to the States for her.

Hope this will help her to get in form. So the doubles exit has its good aspects too as she can spend a bit more time in her home country.

According to photographer Christopher Levy, it was quite a good match
