I'm not so sure about the looks though. Never thought of that. But I'm aware my avatar has puzzled quite a few posters here on TF. I've got some questions about it in private messages, and I've also replied regarding this a couple of times in threads (also on GM). Mystery solved

SF doubles

(2) Sowjanya Bavisetti (IND)/Anna Morgina (RUS) d. Martine Ditlev (DEN)/Susanne Celik (SWE) 62 63

Good doubles tournament, two matches won. Martine seems to take another week in Egypt! She's still only 17 and could have played junior ITF in her hometown Odense next week, but I'm glad she's really giving it a go at the pro tour. GL!

Re: Danish tennis

Danish Championships 2013 has started!

You can find all about the event at the tournament facebook site including OOP (site is in Danish). I assume lots of pictures will be posted during the week. And there will be live streaming Thursday and Friday (QF and SF)! I'm not sure about the quality, and it's probably only from one court.

Favorites for the singles event: (1) Maria Jespersen, (2) Mai Grage & (WC) Malou Ejdesgaard. Karen Barbat is resting after winning two 10K singles titles and suffering from another knee injury. Other notable girls missed this week: Martine Ditlev, Emilie Francati, Simone Alipieva. Could still be a great week.

Re: Danish tennis

Danish Championships 2013

R1
(1) Maria Jespersen d. Elisabeth Nørgaard 60 60
(Q) Stefanie Jolak d. Laura Gaarde Andersen 61 63
Cecilie Melsted d. (Q) Ida Krause 76(3) 60
(6) Frederikke Svarre d. Anna Riisgaard 62 61

(4) Ulrikke Høyer d. (Q) Ditte Marie Egelund 61 60
Sofie Bjerringgaard d. (Q) Mariah Sommer 60 61
Julie Noe d. Jessica Toluie 61 64
(7) Malene Stripp d. Ella Hedeboe 62 61

(5) Emma Rønholt d. Anna S. Christensen 36 61 62
Kathrine Berge d. Emilie K.S. Hansen 60 61
Frederikke Uhrskov Støchkel d. Sofie Skovbo Jensen 26 62 63
(3) Anna Signe Rasmussen d. (wc) Malou Ejdesgaard 75 46 61

Anne Gylling d. (8) Emilie Elsvad 61 63
(Q) Emma Marie Jensen d. (Q) Sofie Boers 63 62
(Q) Anna Marie Møller d. Josephine Visler 76(5) 36 76(10)
(2) Mai Grage d. (Q) Rebekka Hillingsø 61 60

Notes:
  • No big upsets apart from Malou's defeat perhaps.
  • Only seeded player to lose in R1 was (8) Emilie Elsvad.
  • Rønholt hasn't been near her best for 6 months or so. Seems to struggle. Won't be a match for Anna Signe Ras.
  • Grages quarter (with 4 qualifiers!) is a cakewalk.
  • The 2nd quarter seems like the most even. Julie Noe is probably the favourite although unseeded.
  • Ida Krause (U14 player) was 2-0 against Cecilie Melsted in 2013 but Cecilie won yesterday when it mattered the most.

Anyway, Cecilie seems over the hill (I hope not, but it seems like it). She was probably the most talented junior in the generation after Barbat and Grage, and she's still probably the only girl younger than Mai Grage that has ever beaten Mai in Denmark (in a GP Masters final at that!). She was a Danish Championship finalist as a 15 yo; has won more junior championship titles than anyone in DK. WTA debut (qualies) at 15 years of age. Always very solid at 12-16 years of age against anyone. Once ranked #4 or 5 in Denmark. Now ranked #41!

Re: Danish tennis

Danish Championships 2013

R2

(1) Maria Jespersen d. (Q) Stefanie Jolak 60 60
(6) Frederikke Svarre d. Cecilie Melsted 36 76(3) 64

(4) Ulrikke Høyer d. Sofie Bjerringgaard d. 63 61
Julie Noe d. (7) Malene Stripp 6-6 ret.

(5) Emma Rønholt d. Kathrine Berge 62 61
(3) Anna Signe Rasmussen d. Frederikke Uhrskov Støchkel 63 60

Anne Gylling d. (Q) Emma Marie Jensen 63 63
(2) Mai Grage d. (Q) Anna Marie Møller 60 60

Notes:
Mai Grage against two U14 qualifiers in the first two rounds
Høyer vs Noe is an epic clash. Doubles partners, same age. Julie won 62 63 at U18 Championships a month ago.
Rønholt vs Rasmussen will be another big clash. Amazingly, 15 year old Rønholt is leading 3-0 H2H the last 52 weeks! I know I said Anna would win, and I still think she will. But I'd like to see the youngsters break through, so I'll keep my fingers crossed for Emma.
It hurts seeing Melsted struggling, but I'm glad Svarre is doing so well. She's had a really rare development, always progressing at a really slow rate. But constantly improving. Well done
Maria Jespersen seems heading for the final (against Mai). Solid work.
Malene Stripp
Well done by Sofie Bjerringgaard (U14) to reach 2nd round again (she also did that at the indoor championships).

Re: Danish tennis

Livestream from the Danish Championships should begin tomorrow at 13:30 CET. I'm not sure about the quality or how many courts. Probably only Center Court (beginning with a men's QF, followed by Mai Grage vs Anne Gylling). A heavy downpour is expected tomorrow so delays are possible!

Singles finals will be streamed Saturday in cooperation with DR (Denmark's Radio). This will probably be a better production, and Jens Anker Andersen will be one of the commentators. He's coaching some of the junior girls from Gentofte, like Emilie Francati, Emma Rønholt, Helena Francati, and Rebekka Hillingsø, so this could be quite interesting for the Danes.
