Annika Beck Vol.2

Da Annika Beck mit 15 Jahren das Finale des 10K von Equeurdreville erreicht hat, hat sie denke ich mal schon einen eigenen Thread hier verdient . Sie dürfte damit die jüngste Spielerin seit langem sein, die das in so jungem Alter geschafft hat. Hier mal die Ergebnisse im Überblick:

Q1: (6)Annika Beck def. bye
Q2: (6)Annika Beck def. Katharina Holert 6:1 6:1

R1: (Q)Annika Beck def. Alize Lim 3:6 7:6 6:4
R2: (Q)Annika Beck def. Marina Melnikova 6:0 6:0
QF: (Q)Annika Beck def. (3)Danielle Harmsen 6:4 6:1
SF: (Q)Annika Beck def. (2)Kinnie Laisne 6:4 6:0
F: (Q)Annika Beck vs. Constance Sibille

Sie schlug damit zwei Spielerinnen aus den Top500 und das ganz glatt. Im Ranking macht sie einen deutlich Sprung von Platz 1101 auf Top950 momentan .

Carina Witthöft / Mona Barthel / Annika Beck / Andrea Petkovic / Angelique Kerber / Anna-Lena Friedsam / Tamara Korpatsch / Dinah Pfizenmaier / Mandy Minella

Re: Annika Beck Vol.2

She actually stole the first set. She was 3 from 4 on break points, while Ostapenko was 2 from 10. She played nearly twice as many service points in that set as Ostapenko did. At least one of her service games (at 3-3) was very, very long. Overall though, she only won 50% of her service points.

I think she's only played about 2/3 the amount of matches this year that she played in the same period last year, which is not good. It was actually much worse up until the French Open. Here's hoping for a kinder draw next week.

Bucharest

Beck(8) vs. Mitu

Mitu lost a few matches in a row now but still won´t be easy on clay in Romania, could be another early defeat for Annika, tough to predict the outcome here, good luck!!

Annika's quarter of the draw in full:

(3)Niculescu v (wc)A.Bogdan
Kucova v Pereira
(wc)Cirstea v Karatantcheva
Mitu v (8)Beck

Even seeded, she still doesn't get a good draw. Mitu has practically the same ranking as her, although she's not won a match since the French Open. If Annika could win this match, her second round match would be slightly easier, although still difficult. A QF would be a good performance here. Niculescu or Pereira would be very tough opponents in a QF, especially Niculescu, given Annika's dislike of slice.

As she's not playing a qualifier in the first round, there is a good chance she will be playing on Monday.

Re: Annika Beck Vol.2

Well, Annika wasn't playing today. She's second on Centre Court tomorrow, starting not before 16:30 Bucharest time (15:30 Germany, 14:30 UK/Ireland). That's still too early for me, as I don't finish work until 16:00.

Play did not start today until 14:00 local time, and it won't start tomorrow until 15:00. Is that normal for Bucharest, or is it because of the high temperatures there right now?

Annika is also playing doubles here with Peer, but they are not playing tomorrow.

Re: Annika Beck Vol.2

I don't want to disparage any of the players in the field at Bucharest and Florianapolis (even more so), but these are the types of events that Annika needs to regularly get to at least the semifinals.

Re: Annika Beck Vol.2

If I see annika playing right now I ask myself how she could ever beat Radwanska. In the first two games she didn't win a single point by her own effort... And Mitu is not Serena Williams...

Re: Annika Beck Vol.2

1-4 now in the 3rd, double break down. There is absolutely no way back from here.
