Iceland represented again at the FWTT

http://view1.picapp.com/pictures.photo/image/9571628/sports-news-august-2010/sports-news-august-2010.jpg?size=500&imageId=9571628
New girl on the tour: Hafdís Björk Rúnarsdóttir

Iceland. 300 000 inhabitants. 5 tennis clubs in total. Still some years ago a youngster called Anna Heiðrún Þórarínsdóttir managed to break tennis records for her country. She was the first to join the tour, win a match or two, even win a title in Prague. But the girl was very inconsistent, and more into alcohol, drugs and fun than training courts. Her attention began to slip when she started to get a lot of attention in her home country. A little bit too much for the teenage girl. Since she's off the tour to persuade her singing and acting career on the North Atlantic island, she has been in and out of rehab, making her Iceland's very own Lindsay Lohan. Still, the level of tennis in Iceland is so poor that every year, stoned or not, withdrawal symptons or not, with or without puking on court, Anna Heiðrún managed to win every single Icelandic championship. Up until this year, where she got beaten by teenager Hafdís Björk Rúnarsdóttir who beat the former international in three tight sets. The Icelandic Tennis Federation was so excited they conviced the youngster to try her chances on the tour aswell, making her only the second international tennis player ever in het country.

But is she really ready for it? Is beating a stoner that hasn't played an international match in 3 years any sign of talent? And more the question, is she an other party girl who sees this as one big trip paid by her federation?

HBR: Oh. Well. I'm 16. I never played an international match so I don't think this first year people have to expect a lot from me. I'll go out there to learn and have fun. We'll see if I am good enough, but I don't worry too much. But yeah the only trophy I ever won is the Icelandic Championship thingie... My guess is that says it all, doesn't it? I'm not as crazy as Heidi though, I'm not some sort of tree hugger communist. But us Icelandic people, we like to party, and as a true ambassador, that is what I am going to do. Have fun, party, see interesting places and just play around. Maybe I'll learn from it! I don't know what Heidi's highest ranking and all was, but my aim is not to break those records, she had a real talent, me, I'm just on the tour because the Federation is so eager to finally have an other girl on the tour. But if they think I'm never going to be hungover on court or sth, they made a big mistake, haha!

I'm looking forward to meeting all those girls that drove Heidi into the state she is in now. When I last visited her in the mental institution, I was told not to get too intimidated by this French old witch who thinks she owns the place. I think I'm a bit scared of that one already. But Heidi says she has some good memories of the tour aswell, had lots of crazy parties with other skanks. So I'm really looking forward to it! I know I missed the first few weeks and the preperation trainings and all, but there was a lot of fun stuff going on in Reykjavík with Christmas and New Year and all those fun things, so the tennis thing kinda slipped my mind, haha. Yeah, I think I am gonna miss the crazy life in Rvk for sure! Funny isn't it. Anyway, when's the opening party for the ozzie anyway?

A future star is born. Or not?

Hm. But but but. Kolkata has nice spices and all that stuff. And Bollywood! And Chai Martini. And tandoori chicken! And Taj Mahal (it's all India! anyway!) And... "herbs"... Come on. She really wants to let her inner Mother Theresa loose you know! Rúnarsdóttir is just a journeywoman (literally) and she doesn't take doubles very serious. No way she'll end up in the Quarter Finals in the singles draw (helloooo, Ziyi Thingiechingchongchang will whipe the floor with her), she'll be out on the clubs every night anyway. So, if you find someone better, I suggest you play doubles with her, it's likely you're actually good at this and end up with a partner that takes doubles serious!

But if no one else is up for it, she'll play. She'll withdraw if Kolkata is in danger though :p

On the Defensive: Johnson Tries to Recapture the Magic in Melbourne

Melbourne, AUS - Last year, few would blame you if you didn't put the name "Harper Johnson" near the top of the list of favorites for the Australian Open singles title. But, against all odds, the American emerged as the victor; dropping just one set in route to the championship. Twelve months later, Johnson is once again toiling under thesummer sun of the southern hemisphere in hopes of another miracle run.

"There's something about this time of year," says Johnson after a late morning practice session with her coach and longtime doubles partner Siri Cornetsson of Sweden. "I've always managed to do well here during this time of year. My first ever title (Auckland 2007) happened during this summer swing. And, I've made it to two other finals before I won here in Melbourne last year. So, there's something about the heat and the new season that charges me up and brings out the best in me."

Though Johnson went on to lift the trophy on the hardcourts of Monterrey last March, she only reached one other final (Quebec City) and was never much of a factor at any of the three other Slams. However, she and Cornetsson added a second Grand Slam title to their illustrious team resume when they charged through the doubles draw at the US Open. Johnson says she hopes 2011 can bring a more sustained level of elite-level play. And, she's hoping it starts right here in Melbourne.

"I feel like I matured a lot as a player last year," says Johnson. "The early part of the year was such a sudden rush of success. I made it into the top 3 in the world in singles and doubles - at the same time. I won in Mexico and played a much more consistent claycourt season than I had in the past. But, I never really made it to the finals or semis much after March. So, I hope this year, I can be more of a factor throughout the year. Last year, I proved to myself that I have the game to be there and win those matches and those titles. So, this year, I'm really excited and optimistic that things will continue to build for me."

Though she's tasted the sweetness of singles success in the past year, she says her partnership with Cornetsson is as important as ever. The two have never done exceptionally well at the Australian. But, they say they feel like they're still learning new things and improving on their partnership.

"Siri is just an amazing player," gushes Johnson. "In singles, she'd had much more of a steady career than I have and I've learned a lot about what it takes to stay up there and compete at that high level. I mean, even when she was in what people thought of as a 'slump,' she was still in the top 20. She just has a really amazingly disciplined work ethic and I honestly feel like a lot of what I accomplished last year was helped out by watching her and seeing what it really takes to get there and stay there. So, in doubles, I'm hoping we keep playing together for many more years and see how many majors we can win. The (U.S.) Open last year sort of even stunned us. Everything just clicked after kind of struggling a lot of the year to stay consistent and win a lot of matches in a row like we did in 2009. So, we're hoping that happens again here in Australia. Because we know we CAN do it."

Win big or lose early, however, Johnson says that she's trying not to put too much pressure on herself to repeat as champion Down Under.

"Of course, I want to win again," says Johnson glowingly. "But, I mean, it's not easy. There are so many girls here with the game to win. And a lot of them aren't seeded. I have a really tough opening round against (Anastasia) Nemayeva. She's beaten me before. She's very talented and dangerous. So, it's going to be a battle from the first point in each and every match. I believe I can do it again. I know I can. I've been training very hard to make sure that it can. But, if I come up short in the final or the first round, I'm not going to beat myself up and hang up my rackets. A lot of things go into winning a major in singles, doubles or mixed doubles. It's not easy. You just have to fight and train and sacrifice, and after all that... you need a little bit of luck, too. So, I've done the work. Now I just need luck to smile on me.

Young Though To Round 2

Singles:
Round 1: Amita Maria Young def. Vittoria Perez 6/4, 4/6, 20/18

"It was really great to win the first match of the year in the grand slam tournament! I was really ready for at the Australian Open 'cos I had enough time to get used to the weather and the surface here almost a week (I lost in the qualifying round last week, so I went here early). Today, I had to work hard against Perez. She played really aggressive and her serves were really great. So I had to play at a high level, however; I had a bit luck in many important points. And thank god for my last 2 aces in the final set which made me get into the second round! Next, I'm going to play Bowden. It would be tough cos we've never played before. Wait and see, I'll do my best!! " said Young,

Tata will sing everytime when we get into difficulties, and that makes me calm and stay focused!! We will face the 9th seed, Alesandra Kirilova/Aleksandr Kalashnikova. It will be very tough for us, however; we have nothing to lose now. I hope Tata's voice will let us show our great tennis out there and we can make a surprise!!"

Siri Cornetsson edges out the Aussie Open queen

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Qg6J04XZhR4/SXgtPNTiKLI/AAAAAAAAFeY/sa7XvGxyqpE/s400/alize+cornet2.jpg
Siri Cornetsson makes herself a nice birthday present

During the last two seasons Siri Cornetsson couldn't win one singles match at the Australian Open and lost both times in the opening round. This year she got the worst possible draw facing three times Australian Open Champion Elise Mésane in first round, a big hurdle in her ambitions to finally break her singles curse in Melbourne.

The birthday girl from Sweden confirmed her increased shape of the last months and gave it all in this mouth watering first round encounter in the night session of the Rod Laver Arena. With the score of 6:3 1:6 11:9 Siri Cornetsson survived an intense battle and advanced to the next round of the Australian Open.

"I was a bit shocked when I saw my draw. A three times Champion is certainly the last player you want to face in first round. I tried not to be too nervous before the match and built on my confidence. I was very motivated to get myself a birthday present too. Last year my birthday has been a dark day on which I almost quit from the tour if I didn't get encouraging words from other players. Now one year later I have been named comeback player of 2010 and reentered top 5."

Siri Cornetsson also had some encouraging words: "I have alot of respect for Elise who is a good promotion for the tour with her sense of humour and I really hope that she can get back to be a seeded player again. I was really sad to see my doubles partner and friend Harper Johnson lose so early as a title defender. She seemed really motivated before the tournament when we trained together. It's sad to see Mia suffering a close loss too."

Next opponent in "the draw of death" for Siri Cornetsson is Kathleen Pryde who has proved to be an excellent hard court player by winning US Open in 2008.

"It is insane how my quarter is overloaded by Grand Slam champions and runner-ups. You feel like playing the FWTT Championships. I know that I have to play my best again in order to win against Kathleen Pryde. With a good run here I could improve my ranking and reenter top 3 but it won't be easy."

In doubles Siri Cornetsson and Harper Johnson are hoping for a good run: "After Harper's singles loss it would be a consolation for her if we could reach the later stages in doubles here. It remains the only Grand Slam where we haven't made it past the quarters yet."

In mixed doubles the top seeded Cornetsson siblings are on a mission to defend their final points from last season and brother Göran wants to give his little sister a sweet present for her 21st birthday.
"I am lucky to have such an amazing brother like Göran."

Alberto

Harper Johnson on her first round defeat by Anastasia Nemayeva: "I'm disappointed to lose such a close match. But, it is what it is. I played each point as well as I could, but came up short. She was the better player today and I give her all the credit. At least now the pressure's of. So, hopefully, this will free me up a little bit. I'm focused on doubles and mixed. So, it's tough, but I'll live."

Kathleen Pryde-Degman through to the second round of Australian Open!
http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/516/Elena_Dementieva-1.JPG
2010 has been a very bad year for Kathleen Pryde-Degman. A former world number 2, who then hovered about the top 10 for a good two years, found herself plunging down the rank and out of the top 30. Currently hanging on at #29 based on the 10th Jan rankings, she managed to pull a win over Regla Torres winning 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.

But this victory, though hard earned, might not move her up in the ranks, considering that the new system of ranking takes the best 16 results and last year, Kathleen has been a consistent 1st/2nd round exiter.

"I'll just have to take it one step at a time. My mini target is to be back in top 20 and perhaps with some good luck, sneak into the top 15," announced Kathleen.

Her good luck might have just ended as it might take a lot to defeat 5th seed Siri Cornetsson. Cornetsson took out 3 time Australian Open Champion, Elise Mesane, in the first round, showing that she is extremely dangerous on the Australian courts.

"To be honest, I did not even notice the danger I was in. I did not have a clear look at the draw. It did not occur to me that I would enter the next round, let alone worry for it. :x I guess I can start to worry about that now... (Laughs)," Kathleen commented.

Whatever the outcome may be, the second round clash between Siri Cornetsson and Kathleen Pryde-Degman is certainly a match to look out for. Let's hope that it is as exciting as what it seems on paper.

Zianzhi-Hernich to open proceedings on Rod Laver
22 January 2011

Melbourne, Australia-- The highly anticipated match-up of world number three Zianzhi Ziyi and Sydney champion Destiny Hernich, is set to open proceedings of second round singles matches on Rod Laver Arena. Both players have been in fine form entering the Aussie Open, particularly Hernich, who just last week made a title run in Sydney. With the title, Hernich jumped 7 spots in the rankings for a new career high of 28.
She will have a tough contest against in-form Chinese teenager Zianzhi Ziyi, who has made the finals of her last two grand slam tournaments, at Wimbledon and the US Open.
The Australian Open is the only grand slam where Zianzhi is yet to reach the quarterfinals, having made it as far as the third round on her last attempt in 2009. Zianzhi has started the tournament well, winning through her first round in straight sets. Having survived an epic first round match, how Hernich deals with the effects of fatigue after her first round will be telling in the end result of this exciting second round match-up.
“She’s a very talented girl. And I think her potential is being realized now. Obviously, coming in having won Sydney is a great confidence booster. But it can also be tough, playing so many long matches. We’ve played before, but tomorrow I’m not entirely sure what to expect. It should be interesting, hopefully we can make it a good one for the crowd.”

Singles Results, Second Round

[1]Sylvie Bailly def. Sanja Jovanovic 7/6(4), 5/7, 7/5
Sanja still can't break through to the big leagues as she suffers another close loss to a top player.

Samantha Soren def. Cristina-Elena Vladimirescu 3/6, 7/5, 6/4
Cristina was just too tired from yesterday's epic match and succumbed to the fresher Sam.

Emilia Jarocka-Pottinger def. Cornelia du Preez 7/6(1), 7/6(5)
The Africans were perfect yesterday, but Coco couldn't keep up the streak as she fell to Em in straight tiebreaks.

Clair McKrain def. Anastasia Nemayeva 7/6(6), 6/4
Clair finished 2010 on fire and has kept up her great work, ending the run of Anastasia.

Togtdyalttai Wachiramanowong def. Marteena Huubere 3/6, 7/5, 9/7
Tog continue to be giant killer, defeating the hot Saba and the hometown favorite Marteena in epic fashion.

[10]Athea Kane def. Lindsay Raymond 7/5, 3/6, 6/4
Just as soon as Athea was #1 she is now struggling to stay in the top 10 but helps her cause with today's win.

[15]Verena Jameka Starr def. Jookarae Mensarb 7/6(8), 7/6(5)
This was a good win for Verena as Jook has been very successful down under and leaves Melbourne singles disappointed.

[3]Ziyi Zianzhi def. Destiny Hernich 6/3, 7/6(1)
Dess ran out of steam after Sydney and her epic first round match as Ziyi went on cruise control.

Daria Afanasyeva def. [4]Giuseppina Benedetti 7/5, 3/6, 6/4
Daria has just rolled over opponents left and right and took advantage of Giusa, who always seems to get nervous in the Grand Slams.

Pamela Bowden def. Amita Maria Young 2/6, 6/4, 7/5
Young was surprisingly fresh today against Pamela but couldn't muster the strength to victory.

Jennifer Casanova def. Carmen Prado 7/6(1), 0/6, 6/1
Jennifer had a somewhat easier match today against Carmen and now looks at the third round.

[8]Luna-Willow Bartoli def. Annalisa Benedetti 4/6, 7/6(4), 6/4
Not a good day for Italians as the three remaining players lost today. Luna-Willow is focused on the doubles match now.

Kathleen Pryde-Degman def. [5]Siri Cornetsson 1/6, 6/4, 6/3
Kathleen surprised herself with this one ending the hopes of Siri's first singles Grand Slam.

Rita Cebolla def. [12]Sabine Graf 7/6(7), 6/7(2), 7/6(3)
The seeds fell today as another shocker occurred as original player Graf lost to newcomer Rita.

[13]Nthamangela Mbangu def. Fleri Hingisafrilia 7/5, 4/6, 11/9
These two players do not like each other and it was apparent at the cold handshake at the net after this match.

[2]Ruflina Taliamanosoko def. Alesandra Kirilova 6/4, 7/6(3)
Ruflina is keeping her dream alive of winning a Grand Slam in her thirties.

Saba and Athea tend to have random success and get a good first round win.

Afanasyeva/Kirilova def. Harlow/Hernich 2/6, 6/4, 7/5
Daria and Alesandra unite as a country and team to take down a tired Destiny and Bianka.

[7]Felivitch/Mesane def. Bitchesova/Breskova 6/2, 6/1
Ella and Elise, pissed after singles, steamrolled in this one.

[6]Jovanovic/Mbangu def. Benedetti/Raymond 7/6(1), 2/6, 6/4
Just when there was hope for Giusa and Lindsay they struggle again.

Mensarb/Young def. McKrain/Skankhova 6/7(3), 7/6(4), 11/9
Another tight match at the Aussie that saw Jook and Amita advance.

A. Benedetti/Nguyen def. Nemayeva/Perez 7/5, 7/6(5)
Vittoria is so over Melbourne (but still has mixed) as she and Anastasia lose out to Annalisa and Hillary.

Masterton/Torres def. du Preez/Wojnarowska 6/4, 4/6, 13/11
The vets beat the younguns and now Paula faces an interesting second round against Ruflina.

Amato/Cebolla def. Hingisafrilia/Pryde-Degman 7/6(5), 3/6, 6/3
Karen and Rita get their first doubles Grand Slam win over the former Grand Slam champs of Kathleen and Fleri.

Prado/Sanchez def. [5]Pirilenko/Soren 2/6, 6/3, 7/5
Carmen and Candela won this thing a few years ago so it was no surprise to see them defeat the RG champs.

[8]Henriksson/Jarocka-Pottinger def. Selez/Starr 6/7(6), 6/4, 6/4
A good win for Mia and Em.

Pemovic/Vladimirescu def. Graf/Huubere 6/4, 2/6, 14/12
Alijah and Cristina got an epic win and a surprising one too, against a good doubles team.

Galbraith/Tenesova def. Wong/Zianzhi 6/4, 0/6, 6/2

Benedetti Crashes out of Australian...Fires Strength Coach, Psychologist

Giuseppina Benedetti wasted no time in getting rid of her strength coach and psychologist after going zero for three at the Australian Open on Saturday. Benedetti, ranked 4th, has never performed well at a grandslam, and this week was no different. With an outside shot of moving into the top ranking, Benedetti looked paralyzed at times, especially at 5-5 in the first set, and late in the third set against talented newcomer Daria Afanasyeva. After hitting the final forehand nearly 2 meters long, Benedetti approached the net and gave her best to Afanasyeva, but it was clear that she was holding in all her disappointment. The Italian will likely see a drop in her ranking after having an amazing clay court season last year, that, not surprinsingly, ended in an early loss at the French Open.

Young Loses in Singles, But Marches On in Doubles & Mixed

Singles:
Round 1: Amita Maria Young def. Vittoria Perez 6/4, 4/6, 20/18
Round 2: Pamela Bowden def. Amita Maria Young 2/6, 6/4, 7/5

"I'm definitely not as good as I wanted to be. I have to give a lot of credit to Bowden. She played extremely well in the second and final set. She was really aggressive and hit the ball really deep and consistently. It seemed like she could hit a winner from every part of the court and I wasn't able to do anything. She served extremely well and had me off-balance. It was definitely her day."
Young said.

Doubles:
Round 1: Mensarb/Young def. McKrain/Skankhova 6/7(3), 7/6(4), 11/9
Round 2: Mensarb/Young vs. [6]Jovanovic/Mbangu

"I'm so happy with our performance, last week in Finals, and still go through the second round at the grand slam!! Mensarb is superb!! I have to give all my credit to her. Today Mensarb played really good tennis but I, myself, had a lot pressure and made many errors. Our Thai fans were there, they all had 'very high hope' that we would definitely get into the second round. And I know that they'd like us to go further and further! I guess the second round ending is not enough for them. However, I'll try not to think too much and enjoy my tennis next round. I'll do my best."
Young added.

Singles Results, Third Round

[1]Sylvie Bailly def. Samantha Soren 6/3, 7/5
Sylive has a horrendous Grand Slam record but is in the quarterfinals - could this be her time?

Clair McKrain def. Emilia Jarocka-Pottinger 1/6, 6/2, 11/9
Clair fought bitterly for this tight win and now finds herself in the quarters of a Grand Slam for the first time since....?

Togtdyalttai Wachiramanowong def. [10]Athea Kane 7/5, 7/5
The Kenyan fell to the Thai turned American in straight sets. We think this is Tog's first quarterfinal appearance at a Grand Slam.

[3]Ziyi Zianzhi def. [15]Verena Jamkea Starr 6/3, 7/5
Another African fell in straight sets today. Ziyi has been amazingly consistent in the Grand Slams and is fighting for #1 in Melbourne.

Pamela Bowden def. Daria Afanasyeva 5/7, 7/6(5), 7/5
Daria has been downright amazing in her first two rounds but fell today to the lower ranked Pamela who is making her first appearance in the quarters of a Grand Slam.

[8]Luna-Willow Bartoli def. Jennifer Casanova 3/6, 6/3, 9/7
Luna ended the hopes of having three Americans in the quarters and captured another close and thrilling win.

Kathleen Pryde-Degman def. Rita Cebolla 7/6(3), 6/7(3), 12/10
Could Kathleen be back? This epic win against Italian newcomer Cebolla proved to be difficult, but it's her third in a row.

[13]Nthamangela Mbangu def. [2]Ruflina Taliamanosoko 7/6(4), 1/6, 6/2
The all-Botswanian third round saw the youngster upset the veteran in fine fashion, ensuring Ruflina to not capture the #1 ranking again. We think this is the first time in the quarters of a Grand Slam for Nthama.

Abid/Kane def. [1]Bartoli/Kartincova 6/4, 3/6, 11/9
Saba and Athea did it again, this time upsetting the defending champions in the second round.

[7]Felivitch/Mesane def. Afanasyeva/Kirilova 6/4, 6/4
Ella and Elise are on fire and defeat the Russians in a solid win.

Mensarb/Young def. [6]Jovanovic/Mbangu 7/5, 7/6(4)
Jook and Amita do it again and end the hopes of the new-formed pair of Nthama and Sanja.

[4]Cornetsson/Johnson def. A. Benedetti/Nguyen 7/6(2), 4/6, 6/4
Harper and Siri are almost devoted to winning this title now after early losses in singles. Annalisa and Hillary have nothing to be shamed about in this match against one of the best teams in the world.

[3]Casanova/Taliamanosoko def. Masterton/Torres 7/6(4), 7/5
It was an awkward match, seeing Paula and Ruflina on opposite sides of a doubles match and you could get the sense that neither player liked being out there. In the end, there was a close embrace and smiles and laughter at the handshake at the net.

Prado/Sanchez def. Amato/Cebolla 7/6(3), 6/3
Carmen and Candela continue their run in Melbourne and Cebolla suffers a second straight loss today.

[8]Henriksson/Jarocka-Pottinger def. Pemovic/Vladimirescu 2/6, 6/3, 11/9
Mia and Em haven't done much since Wimbledon, but they continue to eek out the close wins here.

[2]Bailly/Wachiramanowong def. Galbraith/Tenesova 7/5, 6/7(3), 15/13
Lindsay has to be the most disappointed person on FWTT after such epic close losses in her disciplines.

Clair McKrain Into Quarterfinals
http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b48/sax_player2007/ClairMcKrain2-1.jpg
Clair McKrain def. Emilia Jarocka-Pottinger 1/6, 6/2, 11/9

Clair McKrain moves into the quarterfinals in a major for the first time since the 2007 US Open, in her first year on tour. "I've been waiting for a long time to get into another quarterfinal in a slam, and today I knew I had to take my opportunity," Clair elaborated, "Last year was terrible for me in the slams. I only made it past the 1st round once and that was in the US Open. Then after that I played some really good tennis for the remainder of the year." The battle between McKrain and Jarocka-Pottinger took place on Margaret Court Arena. The first two sets were lopsided with Emilia winning the first in only 28 minutes, and Clair winning the second in 36 minutes. The last set, however, lasted 94 minutes when Clair McKrain won on her 4th match point. "I was nervous in the third set, it was very close and could have gone either way," Clair said, "But I somehow pulled it out. I didn't have a good start to this year and I was determined to change that with this win." Clair McKrain will now face world #1 Sylvie Bailly. "She's a great player, obviously, with her being number one, but I'm gonna give it my all and see what happens."

The Rise of Lindsay Galbraith, the new hope of Britannica!

This Australian Open has been all about who can make the most of opportunities for Lindsay Galbraith. As this was her first career tournament there is nothing much to be expected of her...however....these losses have got to hurt...Lindsay first lost an EPIC 3 set match by a tiny margin--a match in which neither player ever gained the upper hand. Just a day later the youngest British hope had another setback--this time against the number 2 seeds in the doubles draw where Galbraith and her partner Tenesova had a fantastic match. Here's the good news--Lindsay Galbraith is getting a ton of experience here at this tournament...in the 3rd sets alone she has played a combined 68 games--this really should serve her well for the future as she tried to fill in the role of Britain's next big hope...but alas...for now...she will have to wait another day to claim a singles victory. She did win her 1st round with Tenesova which left Lindsay with a great feeling!

"We're both definitely a Paula"

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0fl19Ck5BH1IX/610x.jpg

Melbourne, AUS - They giggle when the on-court interviewer asks who's Paula and who's Ruflina. Ella Felivitch and Elise Mésane have just won their third round match at the Australian Open, but don't seem to be in any rush to leave show court 2. Instead they're sharing some banter with Lindsay-Anne Sarile, who traded in her lucrative tennis career for a baby and a life as a television commentator. "Did you see how bad we were in singles? We're both definitely a Paula."

It has indeed been a woeful Australian Open so far for the Czech/French tandem. While Felivitch was able to salvage her immediate exit from singles with a decent third round showing in mixed, Mésane had no such luck in either competition. Having been dubbed the Australian Queen ever since she completed the Melbourne hattrick way back in 2009, the Frenchwoman gets annoyed when her colleagues whip out the nickname. "I know they mean well, but really? It felt deserved when I won my third title here two years ago, but I haven't won a match since. Losing to Cornetsson was perhaps not that shameful, but I lost to that Kirilova girl last year. No real queen would ever do that," she laughs. The frustration grows as she rambles on, but Mésane knows that after seven years on Tour, it's best not to make a big deal out of anything anymore. "The more years you spend trotting the globe with these girls, the more you learn how to just go with the flow. So while I find the title outdated, I'll just keep on smiling like Luna in a candy store. It's what Ana-Maria would have wanted."

Queen or no queen, show must go on. After having both crashed out at the opening hurdle, the buxom blondes counted their losses and headed for the only thing that has kept their bank account balanced the past year: a doubles win. Coming off a strong showing at Hobart where they won their fourth title together, the two wannabe Paulas were awarded a seventh seed a first round bye. "We were a bit shocked at first when we saw that we were seeded. Well, to be quite frankly, our initial shock came when we saw about twenty girls we've never even heard of in the draw. I mean, Galbraith? I thought that was some sort of lung disease. Anyway, oui, seeded seventh. All of a sudden, there was this thing called pressure. Ella suggested we also needed matching outfits, but I voted against it. Matching outfits, that's so Ruflina."

A clothing dispute and a bye later, the Hobart winners wasted no time demolishing their second round opponents in two quick sets. Today, however, Mésane's compatriot and FWTT newcomer Daria Afansyeva and 'that Kirilova girl' offered a bit more competition, but delivered no real harm to the well oiled tandem. As in their first round match, the crowd was heavily in favour of the seventh seeds, with a large number of males chanting their names during each break. "Oh, they just wanted us to take our tops off. As if. Do we look Icelandic?" The remark brings up the comments made by Iceland's newest addition the tour, Hafdis Bjork Runnarsdotir, who called the former French top ten player an old witch. "You know, I like her already. She was obviously raised by a school of herrings, as is often the case in Iceland. I know, because Heidrun once showed me a documentary about it. Or was it her own sextape? Whatever it was, herring definitely played in important role. Anyway, like I said, I like her. She'll be a great addition to the Tour for the next three months or so to come. After that, we'll probably see her on Maury to discuss how her babydaddy's a bad herring. You know, after the bit with Nthama complaining about how life is so cruel to her and everybody's screwing her over. Especially thirtysomething year old African women. They're real meanies, those."

Amidst stirring the pot, Mésane will have to take the court at least one more time this week with Felivitch as they're scheduled to take on Athea Kane and Saba Abid in the quarters. "We're ready to go. We lived up to our seeding and have defended all our points from last year. So everything from here on end is just gravy. But don't tell Luna that. She might join those guys in persuading us to take our tops off. And you know Luna, once she's set her teeth into smoething, she goes to the bone..."

She's just jealous because we have natural hot baths that are good for the skin, when you have a skin that ugly, I can understand the frustration. She's in desperate need of a trip to the blue lagoon, and needs to chill a bit more with life. Have a cocktail hon. And she does not know one bit about Iceland! I mean... Herring, eh. HERRING?!?!

Round 2: Mensarb/Young def. [6]Jovanovic/Mbangu7/5, 7/6(4)
Quarterfinals: Mensarb/Young vs. [4]Cornetsson/Johnson

"Today I played pretty ok 'cos I tried not to put too much stress on myself. I just went out there, relaxed and enjoyed my tennis. Mensarb also produced many incredible shots, on the other hand; Cornetsson & Johnson had no god of luck on their side and made a bit too much unforced errors. So we won the match. Thank you all Thai & Asian fans for being there supporting us. We're now happy to get a sure spot in Top 8 doubles race next week. I and Mensarb promise to stay focused on our performance and keep on doing good job. On Tuesday, we'll face the 4th seed. We have nothing to lose, so we hope to show our great performance again and hope our fans enjoy the match. "

Mia and Emilia Ready For Doubles Quarters

http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/636/henrikssonpottinger.jpg

Mia Henriksson and Emilia Jarocka Pottinger last year hit the big time on the doubles tour winning the Wimbledon title alongside eachother. Since then it has been a frustrating time for the pair, who are in their second year on tour as a partnership. Hungry for more grand slam sucsess the pair have arrived in the Australian Open quarter finals after a tense victory over Pemovic and Vladimirescu 26 63 11-9 in yesterdays 2nd round. Next up the pair face 2nd seeded pairing Bailly and Wachiramanowong for a place in the semi finals.

We caught up with the girls after yesterdays win...

Q: So girls you're back in a grandslam quarter final, it feels good right?

Emilia: For sure you know, myself and Mia really should be making all the doubles quarter finals on tour. When we play good we are one of the best partnerships out there.

Mia: Usually we save our best for the slams, it all came together at Wimbledon and we are both hungry to taste that feeling again, hopefully this week. Who knows?

Q: You talk about tasting that winning feeling, explain that?

Emilia: Haha, I think he is talking about what you said on your blog...

Mia: Oh, of course me and Emilia celebrated our win with a Mcdonalds at wimbledon. It was so good, and for sure we'd both love to have the oppurtunity to get to do that again. But there is 3 matches left before that.

Q: The partnerships left in the doubles, who do you fear the most?

Mia: Sadly, all of them.

Emilia: Dont say that, we have to be positive.

Mia: Ok seriously they are all good players, they made the quarter finals for a start. You know our quarter final opponents are tough, beyond that Cornetsson/Johnson are very tricky players. They play simple doubles and it is very effective.

Q: Talk about your doubles style of play?

Mia: We try and play every point different, always trying different formations and strategy.

Emilia: We try and surprise the opponents, make them feel as if they dont know what could be coming next.

Q: And Mia, your'e still in the mixed doubles event. Good right?

Mia: No it is really bad, no I am joking. Mixed is very exciting and enjoyable but honestly I'd prefer to play with Emilia, maybe she could cut off her hair and dress a bit different for the French Open and we can enter the mixed there.

Emilia: I think you'd make the better man on-court.

Mia: No Emilia, you..

Q: Well Thanks Girls, good luck next round.

Mia: Thanks

Emilia: Hope to speak to you after. (If we win)

Singles Results, Quarterfinals

Clair McKrain def. [1]Sylvie Bailly 0/6, 6/4, 6/4
Just as soon as Sylvie makes her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, she finds herself leaving due to the onslaught known as Clair McKrain. Clair has never made a Grand Slam semifinal and here she is, in Melbourne, the lone American left in the draw. Could she pull a Harper?

[3]Ziyi Zianzhi def. Togtdyalttai Wachiramanowong 7/6(3), 6/4
Ziyi continues her amazing consistency in Grand Slams that will surely make her the new #1 when the rankings come out. She makes her third Grand Slam semifinal in a row after defeating Tog in two tight sets.

[8]Luna-Willow Bartoli def. Pamela Bowden 7/6(3), 7/6(7)
Luna has gotten lucky in some close sets and you could sense the desperation from Pamela after this match was over, knowing she would have won the match had she won the second set.

[13]Nthamangela Mbangu def. Kathleen Pryde-Degman 7/6(3), 4/6, 14/12
Another epic fight from Nthama who has been causing some drama on the tour with Kathleen's doubles partner, Fleri. The crowd was very divided in this match, either loving or hating Nthama. We can't believe she's in the semifinals here, usually struggling to move past the second round in hard courts.

Ella and Elise did not succumb to the giant killers of Saba and Athea and have proven themselves ala Paula/Ruflina by making the semifinals. Can they move beyond that and win this thing?

[4]Cornetsson/Johnson def. Mensarb/Young 6/4, 3/6, 7/5
Harper and Siri are hoping to win back to back Grand Slams and now find themselves in a rare opportunity after this hard fought win against the Thais, who were loved by the crowd.

[3]Casanova/Taliamanosoko def. Prado/Sanchez 6/3, 2/6, 7/5
Speaking of Paula/Ruflina, we will see if Taliamanosoko can shed her semifinal demons of the past and move to the finals with her new partner, Jennifer, as they defeat the Aussie champs of a few years back.

[8]Henriksson/Jarocka-Pottinger def. [2]Bailly/Wachiramanowong 2/6, 6/2, 11/9
Tog and Sylvie faced double losses today as Em and Mia are back! We have two of the last 3 Grand Slam champions in the semifinals of the draw.

Daria Afanasyeva/David Nalbandian def. Jennifer Casanova/Steven Capriati 7/6(4), 6/4
Daria surprised us all when she made the finals last week and she continues to impress the Australian crowds by knocking off longtime brother and sister pair, Jennifer and Steven.

Mia Henriksson/Ervin Sjundstrom-Handerqvist def. Amita Maria Young-Kei Nishikori 7/5, 1/6, 6/2
Mia is able to win both of her doubles matches today as Amita loses hers. It was a tough match for the Thai team but they should be very proud of their quarterfinal showing.

[3]Paula Masterton/Adam Holmes def. [12]Martine Kartincova/David Ferrer 4/6, 7/5, 7/5
Paula is trying to do something no woman in FWTT has ever done - win the same Grand Slam four years in a row. If she can do it in Melbourne, she and Adam will hold on to a record that will surely be unattainable.

[13]Cornelia du Preez/Innocent Mbangwa def. Elena Skankhova/Justin Timberlake 7/6(4), 6/7(0), 11/9
Huge crowd today, as usual, to see Elena and superstar Justin. Innocent and Coco weren't having any of it, kept the match close and entertaining, and then moved on to the semifinals.

Zianzhi: “I’m taking it one step at a time.”

World no. 3 Zianzhi Ziyi enhanced her chances of a third consecutive grand slam final today, when she beat Togtdyalttai Wachiramanowong in straight sets to advance to the semi-finals in Melbourne. But even the world’s best succumb to pressure on the biggest stages, as witnessed when American Clair McKrain stopped the world no. 1 Sylvie Bailly in her tracks, dashing the French star’s hopes of winning her first major.
Reporters questioned Zianzhi in her post-match conference. Below are some of the question topics as well as her responses.

On players achieving the number 1 ranking without having won a grand slam:
“Obviously, being the world’s top-ranked player, people expect you to perform extremely consistently. If it’s our current number 1 you’re referring to, yes, I think she is deserving of her rank. She’s won the championships, arguably the biggest mandatory event in the year, as well as a string of other titles. Her loss today was unfortunate, but the fact she’s ranked so highly with little grand slam success is just testament to how well she performs at regular FWTT-tournaments. I think solid grand slam results need to be in place, but with Sylvie you just have to make the exception. She’s a premier player. It’s that simple.”

On her semi-final match-up with Clair McKrain:
“She’s an interesting player, I remember saying back in 2008 after we played, that I thought she had the potential to really go far on the FWTT. But I think inconsistency has maybe been a bit of an issue. This is definitely a great way to start the year for her, a big confidence booster. You don’t win against a top player by fluke. You have to earn it, especially against someone as consistent as Sylvie. So I’m looking forward to a good match.”

Her desire to win the championship title and achieve the number one ranking:
“[laughs]… I’m not thinking that far ahead. I’m taking it one step at a time right now. I need to stay focussed on what has to be done now. If the results are good enough, the ranking will fall into place. It’s definitely one of my goals for this year, to get to number 1. I’ve come close to winning [a grand slam], again now… so I’m well aware of what it takes. But yeah, I’m just focussing on one match at a time.”

On her partnership with Jane [Wong]:
“Obviously, right now, it’s far from anything we had hoped for. Losing our entire Aussie season really isn’t something we expected. I mean, not one match!? [laughs] Playing with someone new can be tough, it doesn’t always fall into place instantly. It takes a while to adjust, especially getting used to new styles and what works and what doesn’t. I’m sure we can do better though… I mean, we can’t do much worse at this point anyway. So, after the Aussie Open we’ll meet in Hong Kong, regroup, and practise hard for Fed Cup and the continued hard court season. We’re not giving up.”

Our second doubles SF after having reached the semis at RG last year. :D

:hug: to Kath & Sylvie, would've been great to have another French Grand Slam champion.
Was Athea top 10 when she won RG? I know she was close.
