Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Eastbourne
Why not go to Holand...?

After it, Mandy will face the pressure of points.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Looks like she might go to Biarritz as she's not playing Budapest or Palermo in that week

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Nurnberg MD
(1/wc)Jankovic v Rus
Larsson v Medina Garrigues
Minella v Pegula
Duque-Marino v (6)Dominguez-Lino

Should beat Pegula. Duque-Marino in good form, I think she might beat Dominguez. A half-dead Mandy took a seet of LDL so she could beat Lourdes but I think MDM might beat LDL.

Have to check Nurnberg altitude

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Bad Gastein: Elevation 1,002 m (3,287 ft)
Marrakech: Elevation 466 m (1,529 ft)
Nurnberg: Elevation 302 m (991 ft)

Elevation for Nurnberg not as high as Marrakech

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

I wonder who she will play doubles with, or if she even plays doubles.

She had a few friends in there, Goerges, Petkovic, Parmentier, Arvidsson

Elevation in Paris not so high... maybe why she lost

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

you can check Babos' schedule here http://babostimea.hu/
Shes in Birmingham this week.

Looks like they could play Eastbourne, Wimbledon, Bad Gastein and possibly Baku together.

"It's not easy to have everything done in the first year but it looks like they already have a lot of experience. It's going really great so far and I'm excited to play here in Marrakech this week."

How is the clay at the venue? "It's really fast because of the heat drying it really fast, and because the high altitude makes the ball fly a bit more," she said. "It depends on each player, but I like that."

And on her confidence going into the tournament? "I try to be well prepared," she said. "I just do my practice and all my stuff I have to do the best I can every day, and I hope the results will follow."
And it just happens her results come in places with high altitude such as Bad Gastein and Marrakesh

Not bad... They can play together these tournaments. Hope Babonella can get more titles together.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella!

Altitude is only one factor, there is also tempeture, humidity, court setup, balls, strings and tension.
Long Island is at sea level and Mandy usually does well at the US Open.

I only remember Mandy playing Jessica Pegula once, losing in Vancouver last year.
Jessica Pegula might be the WTA equivalent to Ernests Gulbis as her dad is extremely wealthy, including owning the NHL Buffalo Sabres.

If you have ever seen Mandy playing on low bouncing grass courts you would know that choosing Eastbourne or Den Bosch makes no difference whatsoever. But England is a nice place to visit.
