Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - doppelt hält besser - vol2

First set was close...Peschke totally controlled the play early on because ALG seemed a little nervous. They saved 3 BPs at 5-4 by 3 good ALG serves, then after they won the set they just totally dominated play...winners, huge returns and serves, all over the net. Too good, that set was very promising.

I took a vid of MP but it's just an unreturned serve from Kveta so it's kind of pointless

Thanks so much for all your reports and keep them coming

Did they finally decide on who plays the AD side? You mentioned in Brisbane they were swapping the sides? Who plays where now and do you think it works good that way? When Kveta played with Srebotnik she mostly took the AD side but when she played with Schiavone she took the Deuce side.

In their practice on Monday they swapped and did 1 each, in the match ALG played the AD side...it worked yesterday, Kveta was crushing FH returns cross court and down the line with ease, but I'm not sure...I might prefer it the other way. I think either works fine tbh, I think ALG is more comfortable on the AD side but I think she is just as good on the deuce side. We'll see in R2

Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - doppelt hält besser - vol2

Since ALG's team also withdrew from Mixed, I am pretty sure Anna is injured or whatever and that was the reason. But Davodus never mentioned any injury signs. It is such a shame since they have been working soo hard during the off season and finally started to click as a team with great results and a promising first round performance plus an open draw since a lot of other favourites lost first or second round

Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - doppelt hält besser - vol2

I dunno what happened...I went down to watch the match and saw it on the schedule they withdrew, so I walked around and saw Kveta hitting with Torsten and no ALG in sight so it must be her...no clue why. Like you say it's really awful because the draw was totally open even until the final...the bottom half was really empty and they were playing really well together. It sucks, and I hope ALG is okay....

It seems she wasn't careful enough then? Hope she is back soon.
