Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Lost 6-1 in the third.

Firstly, now that she's gone up the ranking i think she needs to understand the pressure of being the favorite and not the underdog, and find out how to handle it. Too many winnable matches are thrown away.

Second, she needs to find a cure for those concentration lapses. I saw her matches in New York courtside and it's a little strange how in really good runs everything suddenly falls to the wayside.

It's a bit of a shame because at her best I think she can compete for a top 30 spot.

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Mandy 75 *01

She led 5-3 first set (from when I saw it), luckily she closed the set out and it wasn't another US Open nightmare.

I just saw she just squandered some BP chances on Parmentier's serve.

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Glad Mandy closed it out for a 75 36 63 win

Next round will face Radwanska or Czink.

I'd say both are pretty winnable Mandy!

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Great to see some bouncebackability after dropping the secons set. Even against a good friend it is nice to keep the bragging rights (2-0).

It's at the end of the season when everybody else is half-dead differences can be made. So onwards and upwards !

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Yes, you need to take your opportunities if you are feeling fresh and opponents are not.

She will play Urszula. H2H is 1-1. Mandy won the most recent one at the French in 2011, 2 and 5. On the other hand Mandy lost 1 and 2 to 15-yr old Urszula back in 2006. So I guess Mandy improved more in the following 5 years than Ula .

Not sure which way this one goes- Urszula is in good form right now apparently.

Re: ALLEZ Mandy Minella!

Sitting in my office in Kirchberg, Letzebuerg following the liveticker i feel compelled to comment on the match.

I know U. Radwanska is no push-over but giving the match away like that is no good. In the first set Mandy won only 11 points on her own serve.

I commented earlier on Mandys mental setup, but this time i'm not going to blame her. Instead I blame ze german, her coach. Maybe he's the culprit not being able to prepare her with a proper gameplan. I don't know the guy but with the small amount of money he makes from Mandys game i don't see him as a top shelf coach.

This may all sound a bit negative, but believe me sharing an office with 4 people all from Luxembourg we only want the best for her.
