R1 - Won - Bianca Botto (PER) 1-6 6-4 6-2
R2 - - Ling Zhang (HKG)

Jul 6th, 2010, 06:41 PM
She beat Botto in 1st Round of Valladolid :bounce: Now she faces Zhang who beat 3rd seed in first round :D

Jul 6th, 2010, 07:29 PM
Maria is making steady progress :) She's making a good transition between the 10k and 25k/50k especially seeing that she's making that transition in the european challengers (which are normally the toughest)....

Jul 7th, 2010, 03:07 AM
I saw her in Fort Walton Beach..she had that match against Scheepers. lost 2-6,6-4,6-2..i love her fire and intensity. She can do damage with that serve and forehand and her volleys are great as well. go MJK :)

Jul 7th, 2010, 11:24 AM
MJK!!!! vamos, thanks for the topic! :banana:

Maria is making steady progress :) She's making a good transition between the 10k and 25k/50k especially seeing that she's making that transition in the european challengers (which are normally the toughest)....

Yeah the Spanish and Italian challengers are the toughest. And she is having close losses which can mean that with some experience she could make those matches wins.

This week she is also playing in doubles with Botto :lol: Nice for her to gain experience too

Nederlander RUS
Jul 8th, 2010, 07:11 AM
good luck in doubles, too :)

Jul 17th, 2010, 11:15 PM
MJK is playing the European Under 18 Championships starting on next Monday. :bounce:
I think she can do well ;)

Jul 20th, 2010, 10:17 AM
Maria Joao Koehler (POR) d. Mari Mahoni (EST) 63 63
(7)Denisa Allertova (CZE) d. Amy Bowtell (IRL) 63 75


Jul 21st, 2010, 03:22 PM

4th round.

Jul 22nd, 2010, 01:11 PM
Maria Joao Koehler (POR) d. (10)Charlene Seateun (FRA) 61 63

:eek: What a great win for MJK :dance:

Jul 22nd, 2010, 03:33 PM
Congrats Maria :worship:

She should have been seeded (and high) anyway...She's probably one of the girls with the highest WTA rank in that event but they don't seem to consider the pro ranks in those seedings.

Oh well,


Jul 23rd, 2010, 02:48 PM
Well done Maria :worship:

The quarter final match has probably already been played, but I just can't find the results anywhere. Just found the OOP and discover that there's also a portuguese boy in the same stage of the competition - Francisco Dias :D

Jul 23rd, 2010, 08:14 PM
Maria Joao Koehler is leading 6-1 3-0 against Dijana Banovec. The match was stopped because of rain and it will be played tomorrow :yeah:

Jul 24th, 2010, 02:44 PM
Maria won 6-1 6-1 in the quarter-finals.
Good luck in the semis Maria,


Sep 12th, 2010, 05:00 PM
MJK defended her national championships title today :)

(she was the juniors champion for the 3rd consecutive year last week)

Sep 19th, 2010, 10:03 PM
Maria is playing 25,000 Foggia this week.

(8)Bianca Botto (PER) v Ani Mijacika (CRO)
Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor (ESP) v (LL)Costanza Mecchi (ITA)
Maria Joao Koehler (POR) v Tina Schiechtl (AUT)
(3)Maria Irigoyen (ARG) v Dalila Jakupovic (SLO)

First Round is beatable. Tina has based her ranking mostly in 10,000. But then can face Irigoyen who is a pusher which is bad for Maria's game. :o

Sep 21st, 2010, 06:26 PM
Maria beat Schiechtl 60 46 61. Now she faces Irigoyen :tape:

Try to do your best :yeah:

Sep 22nd, 2010, 10:24 PM
She lost 62 75 to Irigoyen :sad:

Still good to win a round :D

Sep 26th, 2010, 01:37 PM
Maria playing in 25k Helsinki :eek:

Nice chance since the surface is fast. :cheer: Hopefully good draw :D

Sep 26th, 2010, 03:34 PM
I am glad she is travelling outside Spain/Portugal :)

Oct 3rd, 2010, 05:34 PM
Maria is playing 50,000 in Madrid this week. Beat Solsona Carcasona and Davatto in the qualifying. Now final round against Cony Perrin :scared:

Oct 26th, 2010, 06:19 PM
First round of 25,000 in Cairo:

Maria Joao Koehler (POR) d. Martina Caregaro (ITA) 63 63

Now she faces 3rd seed Dentoni :scared:

Nov 1st, 2010, 11:26 PM
This week she is playing in Mallorca 10,000 as the 3rd seed.

With last week result sshe should get up to around 385 :yeah:

Jan 24th, 2011, 11:44 PM

Aug 24th, 2011, 11:20 PM

Aug 24th, 2011, 11:20 PM
She is gonna choke it away :sad:

Aug 24th, 2011, 11:21 PM

My report:
Wozniak vs. Koehler:
I was watching this match while I was watching Koryttseva vs. Marosi. Some girl who I’m assuming was Dorota Wozniak was there and she looked like Aleks and she was hot :hearts:. We all know how Aleks plays, but I don’t think many of us know about MJK. MJK is a lefty and by watching her play she seems like a claycourter. A few people walked by and thought Wozniak was Wozniacki :facepalm:. MJK had some Portuguese ATP players cheering for her and when ever they would say “Maria”, Koryttseva’s parents would look over to that court only to realize they meant Koehler not their daughter :awww:. Like Ajla-Yvonne, I didn’t see much of this match, only during changeovers from Koryttseva-Marosi, but the last game was really exciting and I think MJK saved a MP or two before closing it out. From what I saw, the quality of tennis wasn’t great in this match :shrug:

Sep 13th, 2011, 09:47 AM
She entered 75k Challenger in Shrewsbury (UK)- next week

Jan 14th, 2012, 05:55 AM

Now go enjoy the experience and do your best against Kim :yeah:

Feb 19th, 2012, 09:43 PM

3rd on Court 6...

Yep, I think she'll win that too. :cheer:

She has a good chance of qualifying again for the AO imo! :bounce:

She says on her facebook she trained with Puig and Larriere prior to the qualifying :yeah:

Jan 10th, 2013, 05:32 PM
Thanks for the pics! :hearts: :yeah:

Jan 11th, 2013, 02:25 PM
Maria has beaten Patterson 6-3 6-4, she says on facebook she was very focused on her serve game and it paid out for her well, she was feeling the heat and when she finished the match it was around 37ºC so it was very hot, and she was proud of the result in the conditions she had :D

She faces Arina Rodionova, who was hardly impressive against ParraSantonja, I think if Maria is playing well she will definatly win this one and get a spot on the Main Draw. Plus big big feature, she will be on Show Court 3 who has a livestream so we will see her play :bounce:

Well done Maria! :cheer:

Jan 12th, 2013, 10:34 AM
Maria qualifies for the AO for the second year in a row! :cheer:

She plays fellow qualifier Karin Knapp in the first round. ;)

Jan 12th, 2013, 01:50 PM
Great win for MJK yet again :D She has improved which is great viewing for her future. Her serve was key during the 1st set, got a bit shitty on the 2nd set as she started to complicate things. Was dominating Rodionova with her forehand and even with some good backhands during the 1st set, Arina looked clueless on what to do. In the second set got to a 2-0 lead and looked like she would get it easy, Rodionova fought back and started putting the balls on court with more depth affecting Maria a little bit, who started making more errors and getting a bit tense. 3rd set was Rodionova making to many mistakes, Koehler was more impressive on the 1st set. She got tense when she was about to serve for the match but eventually got it, was nice during the interview, ans I didn't know but her coach is not there with her, was talking about her parents who where watching it at 5AM in Portugal :D :yeah:

If she puts a good amount of 1st serves, she has got a great shot against Karina Knapp, if her serve doesn't work she will find it hard. Still a bit brainless when it comes to tight moments, was just keeping the ball in play and playing to Rodionova's body and not really using the court specially from the 2nd set on. Hope she copes well with the moment and has a good serve day and she can get it. :) Would be behind amazing for her to play against Jankovic :hearts: :drool:

Jan 13th, 2013, 01:32 PM

Plays Karin Knapp, 2nd on Court 5 :cheer:

Jan 14th, 2013, 05:14 PM

7 DFs and broken 1 time, next Katarzyna Piter (POL) #343, H2H is 1-0 for Koehler :cheer:

Apr 7th, 2013, 01:54 PM
Lost the first set to Kasia Piter 5-7! :unsure:

Apr 7th, 2013, 01:56 PM
Was down 1-5, got back to 5-5 only to lose 5-7 :sad:

Apr 7th, 2013, 02:00 PM
5 DFs so far and only 4/15 points won on her 2nd serve...:sad:

Apr 7th, 2013, 02:05 PM

Apr 21st, 2013, 07:49 PM
Maria :sad: So many DFs...:(

Apr 21st, 2013, 10:28 PM
Again lost to Honcova :sad: She's not in good form, and Portugal Open is just next week and it's still unsure if she will have to play Qualies or will get a WC to Main Draw, she has 30 points to defend but in this form it will be difficult, I hope she gets motivated playing at home and with family and coach to support :awww:

Apr 29th, 2013, 07:18 PM
She lost first round in Portugal against Vesnina 64 61 :hug:

Apr 29th, 2013, 08:18 PM
She played pretty well in the first set, but after that faded away. :sad:

Her serve has deserted her, and she doesn't seem to be the same player as what she was in January at the AO. :(

May 10th, 2013, 06:53 PM
She's going through a bad period in WTA events :o

But, today she played the German Bundesliga for ETUF Essen:

Singles - d. #22 Kirsten Flipkens (BEL) 26 63 10-6 :eek:
Doubles(w/Jurak) - d. Flipkens/Beck (BEL/GER) 63 62 :yeah:

Amazing result, hope it translate to WTA events :)
