Re: Mathilde Johansson

Mathilde plays Julia Goerges who is my other favorite player in the first round at the French Open. This is a difficult situation for me!

Re: Mathilde Johansson

What a good looking match up that was. Pity it ended that way for Mathilde. I didn't expect her to win, but she played some nice shots. Some of her fhs were lovely. She showed me today that she can hit a very big fh, almost in the league of Julia's (which is one of the biggest out there).

Unfortunate ending. But having followed her for a while, I can say that her serving has actually improved a bit. She only succumbed to the pressure of serving on the big points. In previous years you would have seen DFs from the very beginning of the match.

I hope she has a good season. Her form looks promising, and I'm sure she will continue to work on that serve, particularly after the way she finished the match.

A video and interview (in French) of Mathilde training off-court in Strasbourg.

Re: Mathilde Johansson

I don't know what she said but she is so cute who cares!
Her serve has really improved. Too bad the match ended the way it did. She always seems to get a difficult draw in the majors.
Like to see her get into the top fifty this year! Good luck Mathilde!

That was quite the same for me. Julia Goerges really is one of my favorite players but i also like Mathilde. In the video, she basically says that she is happy with the pics she made. Good luck to her in next tournaments.

Lol, same situation for me too, I like both girls. Thanks for telling us what she said. Thanks to Belco for posting, although I don't use Tennishaven myself.

Re: Mathilde Johansson

Mathilde is seeded third next week at Nottingham which is played on grass.
I don't know how good Mathilde is on grass.
