Well done Karina, once ranked 432, is back into the rankings! She hasn't really played a lot of tennis the last couple of years, so this is some kind of indian summer, I guess.
She won three 10K's in 2001, 2003 & 2005. Won her first Danish 18+ doubles title in 1997! And she's performing better at the moment than the other Danes playing on the pro tour (Barbat, Ditlev, Ejdesgaard, Rasmussen etc.). Up against Belgian Bonavetura (ranked 398) in the SF. I'm afraid Karina's journey ends here. Good week in any case. GL!
The Swedish Tennis Federation had a brief newsstory about Karina Jacobsgaard yesterday. Karina has played a lot of matches this week (she played qualies too) and was a very tired before yesterday's QF. She wasn't even sure she would be able to play the match! She somehow managed anyway.
Karina is an alternate for another 10K in Båstad next week, so she'll probably have to play qualies again tomorrow (assuming she loses today) unless she gets a MD WC or chooses not to sign in for the event! Lots of other Danes on the acceptance list, btw.
