Apr 23rd, 2011, 01:19 PM

Too Early To Consider Retirement?

"Like I said last week, someone is trying to get rid of me! I don't know why I can't get even a qualifying draw! Maybe it's about time to consider retirement."

"After finishing at Stuttgart, I came here very early cos I knew I had to be in qualifying draw and it'd be much harder than the first 2 tournament of this month to get a place in main draw. But, surprise!!!, a guy (maybe a staff here) said that I didn't enter the tour!!" OMG!! I just can't believe at all"

"I might think again if I should be in FWTT or not. This time, it wasn't fair for me at all. And I don't wanna fight anymore. I think i'll fly to Madrid and look for my new outfits then I'll consider retirement again."

"Sorry Mensarb, I hope you understand my situation. Keep focusing on your play (singles). I hope you get into the main draw. Good luck"

Apr 23rd, 2011, 03:18 PM
OMG, Amita, sry, I didn't see that :hug:

Apr 23rd, 2011, 03:35 PM

Apr 26th, 2011, 04:08 PM

Sophie Voorleck def. [8]Aveta Tenesova 7/6(3), 6/4
Sohpie ooed and awwed the Portugal crowd with her first debut on the tour with a win.

Pretty easy going for Amita in the first round today.

Yoona Im def. [5]Alijah Pemovic 1/6, 7/6(5), 6/2
Yoona gets an upset victory today and leaves a sad Alijah on the court.

Singles Results, Qualifying Second Round

Sophie Voorleck def. [1]Sabine Graf 7/6(4), 6/3
Sophie follows up her earlier upset with a shocker against Sabine.

[7]Amita Maria Young def. Cristina-Elena Vladimirescu 4/6, 7/5, 7/6(5)
Cristina couldn't follow up last week's terrific success and bows out in her first match to Amtia.

Yoona Im def. [2]Daria Afanasyeva 1/6, 7/5, 6/3
Daria loses in a shocker as Yoona gets two good wins in one day.

[3]Jookarae Mensarb def. [6]Annalisa Benedetti 7/6(3), 1/6, 6/1
Quite controversial that Jook didn't get a wild card win here after her Stuttgart win, but still knocks off Annalisa to move to the qualifying round.

Singles Results, Qualifying Round

Sophie Voorleck def. [7]Amita Maria Young 3/6, 6/4, 7/5
Sophie has done the daunting task of winning three matches in a row for a mere qualifying spot in an international tournament.

[3]Jookarae Mensarb def. Yoona Im 6/3, 2/6, 7/5
Yoona couldn't overcome the power of Jook who continues from her amazing win of last week.

Apr 28th, 2011, 12:54 AM
Is Singles R1 today or tomorrow? Just Curious, I looked at the Schedule and it said 2r is tomorrow?

If so, looking forward to the results! Thanks!

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.
Apr 28th, 2011, 01:14 AM
Singles 1r tomorrow (there is no 2r - that was my mistake) ;)

Singles Results, First Round

[1]Ruflina Taliamanosoko def. Samantha Soren 6/3, 3/6, 6/4
Ruflina gets the edge on this head to head with a thriller on the clay in Portugal.

Cornelia du Preez def. [8]Yelena Pirilenko 7/6(3), 7/6(1)
Coco gets a good win against a very consistent player and secures a quarterfinal berth against another Afrobabe.

[7]Jennifer Casanova def. Sophie Voorleck 6/3, 0/6, 6/3
Jenn is able to stop the newcomer Sophie after her amazing three wins in qualifying.

[3]Luna-Willow Bartoli def. [Q]Jookarae Mensarb 4/6, 7/5, 7/6(2)
Jook's amazing winning streak going back to Stuttgart through the qualies here is over...but it was pretty dramatic with Luna in a third set breaker.

[4]Saba Abid def. Emilia Jarocka-Pottinger 6/4, 3/6, 7/6(0)
Em has had a horrible 2011 but Saba keeps trucking along, continuing to add points to her steady total.

[WC]Marteena Huubere def. [5]Martine Kartincova 6/4, 3/6, 7/5
With the exception of Wimbledon last year, we haven't heard much from Martine but Marteena seems to be resurrecting her career as we speak.

[6]Verena Jameka Starr def. [WC]Lindsay Galbraith 6/7(1), 7/6(4), 7/6(2)
We promise these scorelines are real and yes they all belong to Lindsay. She couldn't keep up her streak and falls to Verena.

[2]Nthamangela Mbangu def. Elise Mesane 6/7(1), 7/6(0), 7/6(4)
Elise was much more focused in this match than the Fed Cup brawl a few weeks ago and nearly knocked off the Botswanian.

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.

Alijah and Aveta were happy to get this win as both were eliminated in the qualies.

[8]Mensarb/Young def. A. Benedetti/Voorleck 6/4, 2/6, 6/4
Jook and Amita won last week and are looking for a second straight title.

Abid/Im def. [7]Afanasyeva/Mesane 3/6, 6/3, 7/6(0)
Saba and Yoona get the shock win and advance to the quarterfinals.

Apr 29th, 2011, 03:10 AM

Apr 29th, 2011, 09:17 AM

Apr 29th, 2011, 02:22 PM
Nthama :). Now against Vee-Jay, head to head is 1:2, one of my few negative ones :sad: :cheer:

Singles Results, Quarterfinals

Cornelia du Preez def. [1]Ruflina Taliamanosoko 2/6, 7/5, 7/5
The youngster has slayed the veteran in a very entertaining three set match.

[3]Luna-Willow Bartoli def. [7]Jennifer Casanova 4/6, 7/5, 7/6(3)
Another Afrobabe moves to the semifinals of Estoril as Jennifer is knocked out of the event.

[4]Saba Abid def. [WC]Marteena Huubere 7/6(7), 7/6(3)
Marteena's been lucky in tiebreaks lately but couldn't overcome the Pakistani Princess as Saba moves on.

[6]Verena Jameka Starr def. [6]Nthamangela Mbangu 5/7, 7/6(4), 7/6(2)
Verena's got some sort of spell over Nthama as she eeks out a close win against her fellow Afrobabe to match onward.

[3]Bartoli/Kartincova def. Pemovic/Tenesova 7/5, 7/5
Luna-Willow and Martine are struggling to stay in the top 10, but this win should help.

[4]Graf/Huubere def. [8]Mensarb/Young 2/6, 6/4, 7/5
The youngsters almost eliminated the veterans but it wasn't meant to be.

[2]Pirilenko/Soren def. Abid/Im 7/6(3), 6/4
Yelena and Sam haven't made a final in quite a while, but they have a good chance here in Estoril.

Saba was the only non-African player to make it to the semis and now she has a shot at the title after defeating Verena in a pair of tiebreakers.

Jenn and Ruffy are in their stride and defeated the seasoned team for a chance at another title.

[2]Pirilenko/Soren def. [4]Graf/Huubere 6/4, 7/6(5)
Both teams are great but Yelena and Sam needed this victory more for confidence than for anything.

Singles Results, Finals

[4]Saba Abid def. Cornelia du Preez 7/6(3), 5/7, 7/6(0)
It was everything stereotypical about a clay court match you could imagine - long rallies and constant breaks of serve. Although Coco one the only prior match of this meeting, we think Saba's experience at title winning help propelled her to the victory.
