Re: Danish tennis

It seems like Malou Ejdesgaard, Martine Ditlev, and Anna Signe Rasmussen will play a 10K in Italy next week (QD this weekend).

Re: Danish tennis

$10,000 San Severo, ITA

QR1

Marianna Natali (ITA) 6-1 6-4 Martine Ditlev (DEN)

Malou Ejdesgaard had a QR1 bye and will probably play tomorrow. Anna Signe Rasmussen is also in Italy and could have a MD entry because of the rather weak draw?

Here is a lovely photo of 4 Danish players in Turkey a couple of weeks ago (without the injured Malou, who was supposed to be there too):

Re: Danish tennis

$10,000 San Severo, ITA

R1

Beatrice Torelli (ITA) d. Anna Signe Rasmussen (DEN) 6-7(5) 6-1 6-2

A bit disappointing by Anna to win only 3 games after having won the 1st set (against a 15 year old!). Keep working. Kom igen!
Malou will play her 1st round match tomorrow.

Re: Danish tennis

Brief news:

Another Danish GP tournament was played last weekend. A few weeks before, junior Emilie Francati impressively won a GP tournament defeating Fed Cup player Maria Jespersen in the SF, and pro player Anna Signe Rasmussen in the final. This time Maria Jespersen won convincingly defeating Emilie Francati in the final 64 61. Which is good and sort of justifies Maria's inclusion on the Fed Cup team. But it's also very solid by Emilie to reach two Danish 18+ finals in a row. She seems like the main Danish junior to keep an eye on at the moment.

10K Bastad, Sweden, is coming up this weekend. Unfortunately Barbat, Grage, Ejdesgaard, Jespersen and Jacobsgaard are busy with the Fed Cup, but there's still a lot of Danish women on the list.

Fed Cup play begins Wednesday 8th of May. Draws are not made yet. I'm afraid my expectations are not very high, but I'm still curious about a lot of things: who'll play the singles and how will they do; who are the preferred doubles players; is Barbat's knee OK - and Malous? GL

Re: Danish tennis

6 women/girls are in the Q-draw at 10K Båstad, Sweden:

Anna Signe Rasmussen, Julie Noe, Frederikke Svarre, Cecilie Melsted, Karina Jacobsgaard, Malene Stripp. No Danes in MD. I wouldn't get my hopes up too high for the qualies. The best Danish women are in Moldova with the Fed Cup Team. Noe, Melsted, and Stripp have not played for ages, but I'm glad they're finally back. GL everyone!

Re: Danish tennis

We finally got a press release from the Danish Tennis Association about Fed Cup:

Barbat is injured, Martine Ditlev has replaced her. Karin Jacobsgaard was initially selected but can't go to Moldova because of her civil job. She' playing qualies at 10K Båstad, Sweden, instead. The Tennis Association also explains that Emilie Francati is having her final exams at the moment, which is a higher priority for her. Otherwise she would be with the Fed Cup Team. Good to know! Silly me, thinking they neglected her Good luck in Moldova. Play well and enjoy it

Re: Danish tennis

10K Båstad, Sweden

QR1

Anna Signe Rasmussen (DEN) d. Mathilda Malm (SWE) 6-0 6-1
(WC) Julie Noe (DEN) d. Rebecca Mhina (SWE) 6-0 6-3
Paulina Wulcan (SWE) d. Frederikke Svarre (DEN) 5-7 6-4 6-3
(WC) Karina Jacobsgaard (DEN) d. Alice Wenner (SWE) 6-0 6-0
Klara Alenas (SWE) d. Cecilie Melsted (DEN) 6-3 6-4
Sandra Ortevall (SWE) d. Malene Stripp (DEN) 6-3 7-5


Frederikke Svarre was up 7-5, 4-1, 30-0! Too bad.

A big Danish clash is coming up in the qualifying finals today: Anna Signe Rasmussen vs. Julie Noe! Julie hasn't played at all since a retirement in February, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of form she's in. I've missed her; so I hope she's recovered completely. Both girls were quite impressive i QR1 but I suppose Anna must have an advantage, having played at some pro tournaments lately. Too bad they have drawn each other today but at least one of them gets into MD

Cecilie Melsted hasn't played since February either (I've missed her too!). She doesn't seem to be back at her best form yet. Impressive score by Karina. She and Julie deserved their q-wild cards. GL today.

Re: Danish tennis

Fed Cup draws

Pool A: Egypt (1), Armenia, Malta

Pool B: Morocco (2), Denmark, Namibia

Pool C: Ireland (3), Moldova, Kenya

Pool D: Norway (4), Liechtenstein, Cyprus, Madagascar

Seeded nations in parenthesis. There's no relegation since this is the bottom level at Fed Cup. In order to promote, Denmark needs to win their pool and win a play-off match against the winner of pool C or D (probably Ireland, Norway or Liechtenstein). Liechtenstein has the highest ranked player among these nations (Stephanie Vogt). No ranked players on Denmark's team. Come on girls!

Re: Danish tennis

They should beat Namibia. Morocco will be tough, but possible. If they can get a singles win, then the doubles win is possible!

GL girls!!
