Yes, they played two big tournaments in Italy just prior to French Open. Reached the final in a Grade 1 tournament, and QF in a Grade A (ranking wise a Grade A tournament is on level with Grand slams). Seems like they have a good partnership.

All the best

They also played toghter at 3 tournamnets during 2009.

Garge said this two matches ago: http://www.dtftennis.dk/Nyheder/2010...%20videre.aspx
Quote:
”Vi spillede en fornuftig omgang damedouble. Mine tunge grundslag og gode serv gjorde det let for Saisai at bryde ind ved nettet. Vi matcher hinanden fint, og vi er derfor svære at slå,” siger Mai Grage, der går benhårdt efter doubletitlen, nu når French Open bød på aldeles kvik singleexit.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

From her blog at tennissporten.dk:

Quote:
After four weeks of 'preparation tournaments' in Italy, and a week of exams, I am now finally in Paris to play the French Open. The four weeks in Italy benefited my tennis a lot. I have improved my rankings, and my game. I have struggled for a long time finding my real game, and mentally I've been completely lost, but over the last four weeks it has all come 'together'. It is a relief for me to finally feel that I am striking the ball well. My game has become much more relaxed and I even smiles sometimes on the court (it's not often that happens).

Even though I play well at the moment, I didn't have any big success in singles in Paris. I lost first round to Caroline Garcia from France, seeded 15, 6-3 6-4. I played well, but she was in charge all the time. She had an incredibly good serve that I could not figure out how to block. She was always dominating the rallies right from the start, and it was hard to win the points. I must be better to change my game from being defensive to being offensive, to defeat such a player.

I have however had better success in doubles. I play with my Chinese partner Saisai Zheng, whom I've played with many times before. We complement each other very well. My heavy groundstrokes and my surprisingly good kick-serve combined with Saisai's amazing net game have brought us in the semifinals - to be played tomorrow.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Mai Grage got a bad draw at Wimbledon:

Mai Grage DEN vs. (2)Irina Khromacheva RUS

Good luck though! I believe Mai plays doubles with Emi Mutaguchi, Japan. The doubles draw will be made today (Saturday 26th).

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Mai Grage lost 3-6 3-6

It may have been a more even match than the scorline suggests (points won: 58 - 69). But Mai only converted 1 of 7 break chances while Khromacheva converted 4 of 6. Better luck in doubles!
