Swiss Championships 2009

Next week, the Swiss championships will take place, qualifying is over already!! Conny Perrin and Gaëlle Widmer lead the entry list, but also Nicole Riner announced on her website that she would participate!
And of course I'm especially looking forward to seeing Myriam Casanova play!!!

I'll enjoy it!

Re: Swiss Championships 2009

The seeded players have a bye in round 1:
[1] Widmer Gaëlle
[2] Perrin Conny
[3] Sadikovic Amra
[4] Riner Nicole
[5] Vogt Stephanie
[6] Knoll Xenia
[7] Kraljevic Mateja
[8] Moundir Sarah

These are the first round matches:
R1: Rey L vs. Bleisch N
R1: Kucera T vs. Rey G
R1: Ahmetspahic N (Q) vs. Melena C (Q)
R1: Casanova M vs. Marti S
R1: Giger S vs. Rossetti A
R1: Bianco M vs. Ruhstaller J
R1: Dowa T vs. Wacker M
R1: Novak M vs. Rolle V (Q)

Myriam and Mateja will meet in round 2, poor Mateja , but I'm glad, Myri is back here..! And Moundir is one of the seeds - I didn't expect that!

BTW: How comes Nicole is the lower seed than Gaëlle, Conny and Amra??

Re: Swiss Championships 2009

Good luck Myri!! She has great chances to win it!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

She was the ninth ranked player in the draw and replaced the 3rd seed Amra Sadikovic and received a bye

I would love to, but I could not go and visit the Champ'ships cause I'm ill..! However, I'll ask her the next time I see her in my home town!!

BTW: Quarter finals were played and... INCREDIBLE AND SURPRISING RESULTS:
Knoll X (6) def. Perrin C (2) 6-3, 6-0 , the great Xenia is back!!!

Vogt S (5) def. Widmer G (1) 7-5, 6-0!! Steffi's back in great shape again too.

Moundir S (8) def. Riner N (4) 6-2, 6-4. Biggest surprise of the day; Moundir played a horrible season and now... Nicole

Casanova M (9) def. Kraljevic M (7) 6-0, 6-1 Myri!!! Really sad for Mateja, come back stronger next year. Myri you're my star!!!!!

Interesting semi final between Steffi and Myri, I think Myri will lose more than one game for the first time in this tournament!

Re: Swiss Championships 2009

Do you know what happened to Amra in Autralia (injury?)?

Nicole season has been horrible... apart 2 good tournaments in Australia... she lost 6 times in a row in R1 at the end of this year...

Conny season is also a bit disappointing : she plays a wonderful 100k in Roumania but didn't arrive to do well in 25k... hope for a better year in 2010!

Re: Swiss Championships 2009

Muahaha, Myriam will win, but it's gonna be interesting to see how she does against Steffi Vogt

Re: Swiss Championships 2009

First I hope she brings this form to $75K Dubai where she received a wild card.

Go Sarah in the final! Would be really cool to see her win it.

Myriam But losing against Vogt is not so bad.
