"I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

Aravane will try to win her first match on grass of her carrier !
She will face a qualifier in Eastbourne where she was moved to the main draw due to several withdrawals.
Allez !

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

First match against Nakamura. Aiko will have already some matches on grass behind her, so it will be a difficult match for Aravane who doesn't have much references on this surface.
Aravane needs some points now ! Get them !

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

She lost 61 64. I am tired of all these bad losses. Aiko is a good player on grass, but the scoreline is really worring. 5 games are not enough ! She needs to change something but I don't know what. Good luck in Wimbledon.

She barely has experience on grass so I wasn't expecting much from her.Same for Wimbledon.It's for the hardcourts season I'm looking forward to.

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

Aravane won her first match on grass yesterday ! She is playing an unofficial tournament in Eastbourne reserved to the girls who lost in the first round of the main draw, the Strawberry Tea Cup, and she defeated Anne Kremer 64 62 . She is against Morigami now.
Thanks to Stéphanie who is there for the news ! That's already a relief for Aravane, she knows that she can have some wins on this surface. She will in form for Wimbledon with all this practice.

I don't want to make predictions because I will be disappointed, but it would be very nice to have her in the third round. It is clearly possible. Do your best Aravane !

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

Yep 62 76(4) against Perry ! That's really a good win despite a little choke at the end, but what matters is the victory . It will help her rank ; she needed to get through.
Well the job is done and the goal reached. Now she has a chance to go further as she will play Schiavone. Allez .

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

The stats :

* 3 aces for 3 double faults.
* 15 winners for 9 unforced errors. Perry was actually dictating the game !
* won 71% of the points after the first serve, 59% after the second serve.
* BP conversion : 4/13 , as always .

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

Pour son premier Wimbledon, Aravane Rezaï a passé le 1er tour avec brio. L'an passé, la Française n'était pas sortie des qualifications. "C'était une joueuse qui n'était pas facile à battre car elle montait souvent à la volée. Ma tactique, définie avec mon père auparavant, a bien marché : j'ai évité de la voir trop souvent au filet en la faisant constamment reculer. Je suis contente de moi." Au prochain tour, la 60e mondiale croisera la route de Francesca Schiavone, 30e mondiale et pas très à l'aise sur gazon...

For her first Wimbledon, Aravane Rezaï successfully got through the first round. Last year, the French woman lost in the qualies. "It was a tough opponent to play on grass because she often goes to the net. My game plan, established with my father, worked pretty well : I managed to make her back off so as to avoid her volleys." For her next round, the 60th player in the world will be against Francesca Schiavone, 30th, who is not feeling well on grass.

Re: "I can win on grass too" - Eastbourne & Wimby

And she is playing very well, as often in Grand Slams ! She said in an interview that she loves grass now .
She has improved a lot especially on her physical conditions . I am too lazy to make another report from this match, but I can say this was highly satisfying because she defeated a good Fran.

Allez Aravane !
