As is probably well known, Wozniacki has announced a long-term (yet occasional) doubles partnership with Malou Ejdesgaard as preparation for the 2012 Olympics. Malou is not very well known Internationally, and since I've seen some curious questions about her already in this Forum, I thought we might as well give her her own thread. She has had some success in Denmark - beginning with a national title in doubles 2002. Malou's teammate was Caroline Wozniacki!
Malou's Danish Championship titles:
2002 - Doubles; girls under 12, indoor (with Wozniacki)
2002 - Doubles; girls under 12, outdoor (Wozniacki)
2003 - Doubles; girls under 12, indoor (Kathrine Lund Hansen)
2003 - Doubles; girls under 12, outdoor (Kathrine Lund Hansen)
2006 - Singles; girls under 16, indoor
2006 - Singles; girls under 16, outdoor
2006 - Mixed doubles; under 16, outdoor (Magnus Hallahan)
2007 - Doubles; ladies, indoor (Hanne Skak Jensen)
2007 - Doubles; girls under 16, outdoor (Victoria Rode Bager)
2008 - Singles; girls under 18, outdoor
2008 - Mixed doubles; under 18, outdoor (Oliver F. Andersen Katic)
2009 - Doubles; girls under 18, indoor (Victoria Rode Bager)
2009 - Doubles; girls under 18, outdoor (Victoria Rode Bager)
Malou also has a lot of silver medals (Runner up) at the Danish championships. Noteworthy is her RU title in the ladies' outdoor doubles 2006 - again teaming up with Wozniacki (Malou and Caro were 15 and 16 years of age at the time)! She also has some national Club Championship titles, for instance winning both indoor and outdoor titles with her club KB in 2009.
Here's a brief summary of her International carreer:
Malou's main focus in the period 2005-2009 was on the Junior Circuit where she played approximately 16 tournaments each year (Europe and Overseas). Even in 2009, when she was 18 years old, her main target was the Junior tournaments (she qualified for FO in doubles, and for Wimbledon in Singles and doubles, among others).
She has never had much success in singles, and she never won any tournaments as far as I know; in fact a SF may be her best result. But Malou has always been a decent double player, and she has had some success in doubles. In 2009, for instance (I'm still talking about Junior circuit), she won a tournament in Malaysia, and reached two other Finals (Columbia and Mexico), and three Semi Finals - with 6 different partners!
Alongside her Junior carreer she has increased her senior carreer gradually - entering 2 ITF tournaments in 2006, and continuing with 4 in 2007, 7 in 2008, and 11 in 2009. Her Singles performances were pretty poor, never winning more than 1 match AFAIK
, but she has done reasonably well in doubles reaching 4 finals in 2009 with 4 different partners (10 K tournaments) and finally winning two tournaments in 2010!
Malou Ejdesgaard has not had much WTA experience: Just 3 tournaments in singles (Stockholm 2007, Beijing 2008, and Ponte Vedra Beach 2010); always lost in qualification. In doubles she has played two tournaments - in 2010 with Wozniacki (Ponte Vedra and Charleston). Unfortunately the Danish duo lost their first matches in both tournaments. But winning a set 6-0 vs. Peng/Vesnia is quite an achievement after all.
Malou has played a few Fed Cup matches for Denmark. She won her doubles match vs. Hungary in 2010, and also was one set up in a singles match vs. Israel, 2010. Unfortunately, Malou had to retire at 0-1 in 2nd set due to illness.
Good luck with your carreer, Malou Ejdesgaard!
