Re: Danish tennis

The livestream is amazing quality (it's also possible to follow the livestream on facebook. There's a link to fb too)!

A men's QF now (Ørnø vs Shabib). Mai Grage vs Anne Gylling coming up. I'd prefer one of the other three quarterfinals though: Jespersen vs Svarre, Høyer vs Noe, or Rønholt vs Rasmussen. Grage vs Gylling is the least interesting on paper. Grage is probably too good. But I'm glad the streaming works - and in such an excellent quality!

Re: Danish tennis

Play suspended because of heavy rain (as expected). Schedule will be pushed one day, so finals will be played Sunday. I don't know if the streaming of the finals will be affected.

Only one of the women's quarterfinal started today: Noe leads Høyer 6-3 0-0

Re: Danish tennis

Danish Championships 2013

SF

(1) Maria Jespersen d. Julie Noe 36 62 62
(2) Mai Grage d. (5) Emma Rønholt 60 75

I saw most of Maria vs. Julie on the livestream (the entire match is online now at the facebook link, btw.). Good effort by Julie Noe, Maria was a huge favourite here. Nice comeback by Maria.

I didn't see Mai vs Emma, but I assume the 1st set was a bit closer than the scoreline suggests. The two SF started simultaneusly and we could just see a bit of Mai vs Emma at the edge of the picture when some camera angles were used. Maria & Julie were well into their 7th game before the 1st set of Mai vs Emma was over, and there were some deuces in the Maria/Julie SF.

Anyway, the 2nd set is a very good result by Emma. Mai seems to be in exceptional form at the moment (having lost only 2 games in her previous 7 sets before today's 2nd set). Emma is 15 yo and should be able to come closer the next couple of years if she keeps progressing.

Emma and Julie
Maria and Mai

Gotta cheer for KB, though!!

Re: Danish tennis

That's the men's semis.

The wome's semifinals are:

KB vs Hvidovre
Gentofte vs Birkerød

KB is a huge favourite against Hvidovre. The other semi, Birkerød (with Karen Barbat, Anna Signe Rasmussen and others) vs Gentofte (Maria Jespersen, Emilie Francati, Emma Rønholt) could go any way. I guess it depends on whether Emma and Emilie will be back from Cyprus Saturday (I hope not!).

Re: Danish tennis

Results from the team semifinals Saturday September 7:

KB d. Hvidovre 4-0
Mai Grage d. Natasha Nielsen 61 61
Karina Jacobsgaard d. Sille Tranberg 61 61
Malou Ejdesgaard d. Emma Tranberg 61 63
Emilie Elsvad - Emilie K.S. Hansen 60 60

Birkerød d. Gentofte 4-1
Karen Barbat d. Maria Jespersen 67(4) 62 [10-5]
Anna Signe Rasmussen lost to Emma Rønholt 36 64 [8-10]
Anne Theil Gylling d. Sisse Folmø 36 76(5) [10-5]
Malene Stripp d. Ella Hedeboe 62 64
Rasmussen/Barbat d. Dyrberg/Jespersen 61 36 [10-6]

KB vs Hvidovre went as expected. Birkerød vs Gentofte was in fact quite close with lots of matchtiebreaks. Gentofte missed Emilie Francati, who was playing in Cyprus. But Emma Rønholt got back to Denmark in due time and got her 5th straight win over Rasmussen. Impressive.

Also nice to see that Eva Dyrberg is still playing although she quitted pro tennis more than 10 years ago. She is one of Denmark's best female players ever, and was ranked #77 @WTA at her peak. She won Wimbledon doubles as a junior, and the US Open doubles with Clijsters (juniors)! She began studying medicine immediately when she quitted pro tennis early 2003 (or perhaps even before when she was still a pro player?). She is now a medical doctor.

Final and bronze match today! GL
