Danish tennis

I think we may need a thread to discuss Danish tennis in general (non-juniors). Maria Jespersen is starting a pro career at the moment, and some others like Anna Signe Rasmussen and Malene Stripp, who are in their last junior seasons, have already tried their luck on the pro circuit a few times in 2012. And I guess there will others the next few years. Creating a new thread for each player might be a bit excessive.

This thread can also be used for Danish Fed Cup discussions now that Caro isn't playing on the team.

Re: Danish tennis



Maria Jespersen, 20 years of age, is the most recent Danish pro player. She's been playing as a qualifier i Greece this week, and performed pretty well in some tough matches.


$10,000 Heraklion, Greece

QR1 Maria JESPERSEN (DEN) d. Alessia CAMPLONE (ITA) 7-6(5) 6-1
QR2 Maria JESPERSEN (DEN) d. [13] Giulia BRUZZONE (ITA) 6-3 3-6 6-1
QR3 Maria JESPERSEN (DEN) d. Sabrina BAMBURAC (GBR) 3-6 7-5 7-6(8)

1R [2] Jasmin STEINHERR (GER) d. Maria JESPERSEN (DEN) 4-6 6-3 6-3


Pretty good effort against the 2nd seeded player! Here's Maria's own report from the match (brutally excerpted and translated from an article here):
Quote:
We both held serve during the first set until I broke her love at 5-4! I'd been serving really well in the 1st set. I also began the 2nd set really well but I lost the concentration and didn't really believe I could win. I lost the set 6-3.

Then I began to play again like I had done in the 1st set. I was immedialtely up 3-1 with three breakpoints to 4-1! I was serving with new balls at 3-2 when I started to think too much about it. The pressure was growing and it was really important to hold serve. I had won my previous service game to love with four perfect first serves. But she was returning really well so I was broken to 3-3.
The last three games were really close but she eventually won the set 6-3.

We talked after the match, and she told me about her own struggles earlier in her career when she had gone through qualification only to lose against one of the top seeds in the first round of MD. She also told me, that the most experienced won today, but she complimented my game - my time will come. I'm already looking forward to my next tournament.

BTW: I got a new nickname at this tournament. Players and coaches call me Karlovic! They're all very impressed with my serves and the countless aces I've been serving here in Greece.
GL to Maria on the pro circuit!

Re: Danish tennis

Hvad godt kan det være at give en ung en chance når hun ikke er nær at vinde just one game... ?

5-0 30-30... can she hold.....

Re: Danish tennis

37m 40s. Det er s'gu hurtigt selv for en 60 60'er. Håber ikke hun tager det for hårdt. Arrangørerne, eller er det WTA, skulle have dummebøder for det her.

Re: Danish tennis

Hvis Alipieva kan tage 3 partier, vil det være en dundrende succes for hende. Ikke at jeg tror det sker efter 2 kampe allerede i dag.

Re: Danish tennis

6-0 6-0 is not really surprising. I don't think she will take it too hard. Pro players like Barbat and Ejdesgaard have also been double-bageled in Copenhagen. And Svarre is not even an elite junior. But why she got a Wild card? I don't know.

Re: Danish tennis

Jeg tror da Simone tager flere end 3...


Måske ikke lige så god som Caro på den alder men da en noget størrere talent end Svarre, er hun datter af den kendte fægter P. Svarre?

Re: Danish tennis

Ja, Frederikke er datter af Pernille Svarre, som også var verdensmester i moderne femkamp.
