Re: Danish tennis

She has already won more than twice the points of Svarre, against a much harder opponent.

Re: Danish tennis

Godkendt resultat fra Alipieva. Jeg havde faktisk forventet 60 60 i den her.

Re: Danish tennis

It was OK! Match lasted 62 minutes. Simone won 35 of 97 points which isn't too bad (36 %).



Well done, Simone!

Re: Danish tennis

Acceptable result by Simone. Still a total irrelevant match for her and Chakvetadze was only playing 50%. She hardly wanted to sit down during change-over. The WTA players must be shaking their heads over how the Danes are wasting their precious WC's

Re: Danish tennis

Nej, det kører ikke for godt for det danske Fed Cup hold. De har spillet rigtig mange tætte sæt, men ender alligevel med at tabe kampene til sidst. Det er allerede afgjort, at danskerne skal spille nedrykningskamp - også selv om Finland evt. besejres i morgen. Øv!

Spillerne ser ellers ud til at have det sjovt:

Re: Danish tennis

http://www.dr.dk/Sporten/Oevrig_spor.../21/163241.htm :



Fed Cup-hold uden Wozniacki rykker ned


Det danske Fed Cup-hold i tennis rykkede lørdag ned i Europa/Afrika Group III, da holdet tabte 0-3 til Letland i Egypten.

Danmark var uden stjernen Caroline Wozniacki, som ikke spiller Fed Cup i øjeblikket.

Da Mai Grage samtidig blev skadet, måtte Cecilie Melsted i aktion i anden damesingle, og hun tabte sin kamp i to sæt.

Lidt bedre gik det for Karen Barbat, som først måtte give fortabt efter tre sæt i sin kamp.

Malou Ejdesgaard og Cecilie Melsted tabte doublekampen i to sæt.

Danmark spillede fire kampe ved turneringen i Egypten, men alle blev tabt.






Nu er det da helt sikkert at Woz ikke spiller Fed Cup før 2015 eller deromkring.

Re: Danish tennis

Jeg er ikke overraset over nedrykningen, men skuffet over måden, de tabte på. Mai Grage leverede flotte resultater og vandt 2 af sine 3 singlekampe. Resten skuffede. De danske spillere spillede en del tætte sæt, som de alligevel ikke formåede at vinde, og de var flere gange ude i 3 sæt uden at kunne vinde det afgørende sæt. Niveauet og skarpheden skal højnes markant.

Nu er damerne for første gang nogensinde nede i den absolut nederste division, hvor de skal prøve kræfter med tennisnationer som Malta og Namibia! Og jeg er bange for, at det kommer til at tage nogle år, før de er tilbage i EA group I, hvor de spillede sidste år.
