Knapp is playing well this year ane she is coming back where she were, so I knew it would have been a tough match, but I believed Michelle could win :sobbing:

Rui.
Aug 26th, 2011, 09:01 PM
Michelle :hug: Great effort anyway.

Nobody knows her next tournament... It won't be an itf and she wasn't in the list for Guangzhou so I guess she'll play Quebec? This is a guess only. Obviously TBE, always ignores my posts asking if she's there or not.

I know :sobbing: I tried... But why do they behave like that? :sobbing:

I have no idea... Mostly because they get a lot of questions about her :p I think Tashkent is out of question since she is playing in Albuquerque the week after. The question is Quebec... if she wanted to play she'd have a ranking to do it and I don't see why she would stop 3 weeks after the USO when she just cameback from injury...

Calliope.
Sep 8th, 2011, 04:33 PM
TheBoiledEgg has Michelle on his "black list". He will not give out any information about her because he hates her. :shrug:

if it is the real reason it is insane :tape: but I think he answered in the past :shrug:

I agree she should play... We have to wait a few days to know...

[1] M. Larcher de Brito vs. bye
A. Fink vs. A. Sadikovic
G. Dabrowski vs. L. Lee-Waters
[WC] T. Alabi vs. [7] G. Brodsky

Rui.
Sep 9th, 2011, 10:41 PM
I hope she qualifies :) This tournament seems so weak..Having a bye in the first quali round may actually be good too so we'll see how she does... She did well at the USO if she keeps the form she can do some damage, even on the md..

Calliope.
Sep 10th, 2011, 12:25 AM
I think she has only one point to defend till the end of the year and she will lose 10 points from last year Uso r1, if only she qualifies she gains 16 points. So if she plays well in the next couple of months she can really improve her ranking. Let's hope so, I would like to see her back in the top 100 and more :sobbing:

She qualified last year at the USO ;) She'll lose some points but it will keep her at around 190 according to TBE's ranks... She will play Quebec and probably some 4 other tournaments in this series of challengers in the USA so good chance to win points indeed. After that we'll see. I guess her decision to play more this season or not may have to do with her rank and the AO cut-off? Though she probably won't get in she can atleast try to win some ranking positions :p

yes she will lose 10 points for last year uso because she qualified last year and lost in last qualies round this year, so just a few points. Last year she played only albuquerque after uso where she lost in the first round, so she has nothing to defend and can only improve the ranking with some wins :)
about aus open cut-off... She needs to gain about 400 points to get in I think, so it's very difficult... But if she does well she can maybe have the rank to be seeded in qualies...

It's basically impossible then, would need to win Quebec :haha:

Yes, I think that too much pressure played a part in her dip in form. As I've said before, she was probably suffering from burnout in 2010. That said, Michelle is a fighter, and she was able to pull herself back together this year. Fans are complaining as if she's had another terrible year, but if you compare last year's record to this year's, you will see that she has definitely started to turn things around in 2011.

Michelle...:help: You see Heather, Laura, Christina, all doing so well, while Michelle is losing first round in challengers. Maybe she should have played juniors a while longer. She should take a break and define her priorities.

I know that everyone would've loved to have seen her come back from the injury playing better than ever, but that is rarely how things work. Let's be honest here; players generally struggle when they're on the comeback. The few exceptions to that rule are those players who have had the opportunity to practice for months before their return. Michelle had a knee injury, so I think that it is pretty safe to say that she spent most of her time away rehabbing it. Without a doubt, the injury came at a bad time. That said, we've just got to be thankful that it wasn't any worse, and that she was able to make it back out there before the end of the year.

She's playing in the Troy 50k this week, and started things off with a win over Tamaryn Hendler, 7-5 3-6 6-3. That's definitely a good win for Michelle, because Tamaryn has been playing some pretty solid tennis this year. She's gonna face Varvara next; that will be a tough assignment.

Calliope.

Ok so the story:

the 1st time I said it it came from a facebook fan page -> then they proceeded to say that she'll play indeed.
the 2nd time (meaning today) on another site (bolamarela) they said she wouldn't play but are now saying she will. :lol:

Jan 24th, 2012, 04:45 PM
About Fed Cup:

Pool C
- Netherlands: Arantxa Rus, Michaella Krajicek, Bibiane Schoofs, Kiki Bertens, Manon Bollegraf (captain)
- Great Britain: Elena Baltacha, Anne Keothavong, Heather Watson, Laura Robson, Judy Murray (captain)
- Israel: Shahar Peer, Julia Glushko, Keren Shlomo, Deniz Khazaniuk, Lior Mor (captain)
- Portugal: Michelle Larcher De Brito, Maria Joao Koehler, Barbara Luz, Margarida Moura, Pedro Cordeiro (captain)

I think it's a pretty difficult pool. Netherlands and GB have better teams, Israel has only Shahar Peer, let's hope Portugal can finish at least 3rd, so stays in Group I!

And then Michelle holds.

Atleast Michelle's first serve is kinda stable and she can put it in quite a lot but her second serve is just :tape: Peer was returning it about 4 steps inside the court.

After that she'll play 3 weeks in a row, Midland 100k, Surprize 25k, Memphis (I think). I don't expect much from Midland actually since she'll have to make a long trip and play a day or two after. :tape: But whatever, these results look promising :)

Europe/Africa Zone Group I: Thursday

By Ray Stevens

EILAT, ISRAEL: Michelle Larcher de Brito of Portugal dealt a severe blow to the qualification hopes of home favourites Israel on a day of upsets at the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Europe/Africa Zone Group I tournament on Thursday.

The young Portuguese No. 1, ranked at No. 136, 99 places lower than her Israeli opponent Shahar Peer, played a solid baseline game and capitalised on the Israeli's many errors to register a 61 62 thrashing that both the home favourite and the crowd are certain to remember for a while.

It has also complicated the situation in Pool C where following Israel's surprise 2-1 overall loss to Portugal and Great Britain’s win over Netherlands, the final placings will only be determined at the end of Friday’s action.

Israel got off to a promising start when Julia Glushko put aside the disappointment of Wednesday's defeat to Dutch opponent Bibiane Schoofs to comfortably overpower Maria Joao Koehler 62 64.

But after de Brito’s surprise win, Peer and Glushko then lost a three-set doubles encounter against the same two Portuguese opponents 62 46 64 in a match more notable for the high number of errors than memorable exchanges.

“I was really surprised with myself but I’m also really proud of myself… I just went out and gave it my best, she’s such a great player, I had nothing to lose. I went out thinking that I can do this and it turned out great,” de Brito said as she celebrated after beating Peer.

Many of the local fans mobbed her for her autograph and a few also asked to have their picture taken with the striking 19-year-old.

Great Britain gained their second win after beating Netherlands 2-1 to put them in pole position to qualify from the round-robin group. Schoofs put the Dutch ahead by winning a baseline duel against Anne Keothavong 63 67(3) 63 in a clash that lasted four minutes short of two hours.

Elena Baltacha then levelled the tie by overpowering Michaela Krajicek 63 63 and Heather Watson and Laura Robson ensured victory, winning a tight doubles encounter 75 76(5) against Schoofs and Kiki Bertens in a match lasting 2 hours 8 minutes.

A win for GB over Israel on Friday would ensure they top Pool C, and if coupled with a Dutch win over Portugal, all three other teams would have two losses and a win, and a more detailed scrutiny of the results would be required to determine which team finishes in bottom place. Israel could also win the group if they beat the Brits 3-0 and Netherlands beat Portugal 3-0.
