Singles Results, First Round

Aveta Tenesova def. Rita Cebolla 5/7, 7/6(2), 7/6(6)
Poor Rita, another match lost in such a close contest. Aveta now faces Pammy.

Nadia Banaszek def. Alina Patersson 7/5, 7/5
Nadia was able to take this one out in straight sets to move on.

Fleri Hingisafrilia def. Alijah Pemovic 6/4, 4/6, 7/5
A long and grueling match in this one saw Fleri come out the victor.

Yanet Mori-Tu def. Zaelly Ircha 4/6, 7/6(5), 6/1
Fleri was quick to watch her friend almost take out Yanet, only to fall apart in the third set.

Yoona Im def. Marteena Huubere 3/6, 7/5, 7/5
Poor Marteena - we wonder if she will ever regain her status. Yoona was pumped after this win.

Jessamine Minella def. Stefania di Francesca-Beck 6/4, 6/4
Doubles partners squared off in this one with Jessamine coming out the winner.

Yanina Wickmayer def. Ella Felivitch 6/4, 2/6, 7/6(4)
And just like that, the US Open champion is out. Ella was very tired from her long flight and Yanina took full advantage.

Kathleen Pryde-Degman def. Anna Rurikovic 6/4, 6/4
Kathleen made quick work of the youngster to move to the second round.

Sep 14th, 2011, 10:06 PM
Yanet, Kathleen, Nadia :inlove:
Ella :eek: :hug:
Marteena, Stefania, Alijah :sad:

Sep 15th, 2011, 12:11 AM
Fleri :bounce:

Zaelly :sad: oh well so close to win the match with ONLY 80pts

Sep 15th, 2011, 12:11 AM
Congrats winners :) losers :hug:

Sep 15th, 2011, 12:26 AM

Yoona will lose next round anyway :lol:

Sep 15th, 2011, 04:26 AM
C'mon Fleri win the title so you can qualify for SEC Bali :p

Sep 15th, 2011, 05:12 AM
Allez Nadia.

Yanet :yeah:
Ella :sobbing:

Sep 15th, 2011, 06:34 AM
Alijah :( :(

Fleri :yeah:

Singles Results, Second Round

Aveta Tenesova def. [1]Pamela Bowden 7/5, 7/5
Aveta gets a tremendous win against the world's number one who hasn't recovered from her US Open injury.

[5]Jennifer Casanova def. Nadia Banaszek 6/4, 0/6, 6/4
Jennifer was demolished in the second set, but played the tights sets tough to come away a winner.

[7]Cornelia du Preez def. Fleri Hingisafrilia 6/3, 7/6(3)
Coco continues to play well week after week and takes out a new and improved Fleri.

[4]Nthamangela Mbangu-Zeric def. Yanet Mori-Tu 7/6(3), 7/6(5)
Nthama made some interesting remarks towards her Fed Cup teammate, but backs it up with a win today.

Yoona Im def. [3]Ruflina Taliamanosoko 3/6, 7/5, 7/6(4)
Ruflina couldn't defeat Yoona, who utilized her freshness to defeat the elder Taliamanosoko.

[6]Saba Abid def. Jessamine Minella 7/5, 4/6, 6/4
We thought Saba may just wash away after losing in the first round of the US Open (which she was defending) but she fought like a warrior today.

[8]Daria Afanasyeva def. Yanina Wickmayer 0/6, 6/1, 7/5
Daria is still trying to capture her early-2011 form to finish the year strong.

[2]Ziyi Zianzhi def. Kathleen Pryde-Degman 7/5, 6/2
A good win for Ziyi who hasn't played spectacularly well in the last few months.

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.
Sep 15th, 2011, 03:56 PM
Doubles 1r will be played tomorrow as the draw is smaller than I realized. :)

Sep 15th, 2011, 04:28 PM
Good win Jen, I expected a tough match as I lost both matches against Nadia before :D Nadia :hug:

Ruffy :sad:

Sep 15th, 2011, 04:52 PM
Holding thumbs Ziyi will get out of her slump here.. Congrats winners :)

Sep 15th, 2011, 10:16 PM
Nthama :yeah:
Yanet :hug:
Ruffy, Pamela :help: :sad:
Fleri, Nadia :hug:
Ziyi, Jen, Coco, Daria :hearts:

Sep 15th, 2011, 10:17 PM
The only time Nthama and Coco have faced up until now was in an exhibition in Nkurenkuru :eek:

Sep 16th, 2011, 05:24 AM
Nadia :(

Sep 16th, 2011, 05:44 AM
Nice win Daria, but no against Ziyi again this year :unsure:

Nthamangela, Jennifer :yeah:

Sep 16th, 2011, 06:35 AM

Ruflina :hug:

Singles Results, Quarterfinals

[5]Jennifer Casanova def. Aveta Tenesova 7/5, 1/6, 6/2
Aveta couldn't follow up yesterday's terrific win and fell to the consistent Casanova in three sets.

[4]Nthamangela Mbangu-Zeric def. [7]Cornelia du Preez 1/6, 6/3, 6/4
Nthama won this first official battle of Afro-babes after coming from behind in a lopsided first set.

[6]Saba Abid def. Yoona Im 6/3, 7/6(2)
Saba loves these international hard court events and prevents Yoona from defeating two seeded players in a row.

[2]Ziyi Zianzhi def. [8]Daria Afanasyeva 6/3, 7/5
Ziyi holds back Daria, who has beaten her many times in the past.

Doubles Results, First Round

[1]Casanova/Taliamanosoko def. Afanasyeva/Im 7/6(3), 3/6, 6/2
Jennifer and Ruflina are hot after the US Open and looking for another doubles title to certify their year end lead.

[4]Bowden/Mbangu def. Francesca-Beck/Minella 4/6, 7/5, 7/6(1)
Nthama and Pamela have a good partnership that shows excellent teamwork. This win proves it.

[3]Hingisafrilia/Pryde-Degman def. Banaszek/Huubere 2/6, 6/4, 6/3
Fleri and Kathleen continue their march back to the top with a good win over a pair of veterans.

[2]Felivitch/Mesane def. Pemovic/Tenesova 6/4, 7/6(6)
Ella and Elise always get their act together in the fall and win another good match.

Sep 16th, 2011, 08:39 PM
Congrats winners :)

Sep 16th, 2011, 10:24 PM
Nthama in both SFs... first time since Doha... :eek: :inlove:
Expecting two losses now though.

All four seeded teams in doubles SFs :eek:

Sep 16th, 2011, 10:43 PM
Another first-time meeting for Nthama. This time it's Jennifer Casanova. Can't believe it's the first time we face up :eek:

In doubles, our head to head is tied at 5-5 :cheer:

Sounds like an interesting match-up for tomorrow :inlove:

Sep 16th, 2011, 11:47 PM

Sep 17th, 2011, 08:09 AM
Good wins in both singles and doubles :D But I think Nthama is going to win the next match, looking at the score ;)

Sep 17th, 2011, 08:15 AM
I actually think, you are the one who will win in a 3rd set tie-break :shrug:

Sep 17th, 2011, 01:10 PM
Singles Results, Semifinals

[5]Jennifer Casanova def. [4]Nthamangela Mbangu 6/1, 1/6, 7/6(5)
Nthama knew this one would come close in the end, especially as it is shockingly the first time they've ever played each other.

[6]Saba Abid def. [2]Ziyi Zianzhi 7/5, 2/6, 6/4
Saba continues to come back after bad losses and takes out the #2 player in the world to move to the finals.

Doubles Results, Semifinals

[1]Casanova/Taliamanosoko def. [4]Bowden/Mbangu 6/1, 0/6, 6/4
Nthama loses both of her matches and wasn't too happy with Jennifer. However, Casanova and Taliamanosoko keep up their streak from New York.

[2]Felivitch/Mesane def. [3]Hingisafrilia/Pryde-Degman 6/3, 7/5
Ella and Elise set up a rematch of last week's Grand Slam finale after taking out Fleri and Kathleen.

Sep 17th, 2011, 02:10 PM
Congrats winners! :D

Rita is in a big slump! :sobbing:

Sep 17th, 2011, 02:40 PM
Nice, another final. It'll probably be the same result as in New York, but we'll take it. :p

Sep 17th, 2011, 04:45 PM
Nthama :sad:
Congrats Jen :yeah:

Sep 17th, 2011, 05:08 PM
I'll never guess from any scores of previous matches again, great to see Jen in two finals :eek::D
But I don't have a great head-to-head against Saba, so we'll see what happens tomorrow!
Nthama :hug: I'm sure you'll reach many more finals :hug:

Ruffy / Jen :hearts: Now against Ella and Elise again :lol:

Doubles Results, Finals

[1]Casanova/Taliamanosoko def. [2]Felivitch/Mesane 7/6(5), 2/6, 6/1
The same result as last week, although slightly different scoring in the sets. Jennifer and Ruflina are the dominant team of 2011 but Ella and Elise are among the elite.

Sep 18th, 2011, 07:46 AM
Jen :hearts:
Congrats on both titles :hearts:

Sep 18th, 2011, 09:28 AM
What a great week :bounce: I'm so happy about winning both titles here, thanks to everyone who supported me this week!!!

Congrats also to Saba for a great week in singles!:D:worship:

Thanks also to Ruffy for being a great partner every week :kiss: And also congrats to Elise and Ella, you played a fantastic tournament :worship:

"It's simply amazing. I mean, it's my fourth title already this season and to get some back-up of the ranking points as I have to defend my title in Beijing is great as well. My goal is to get to the YEC in both singles and doubles, but there's still a long way to go and many tournaments coming up. But there are so many great players out there, you never know what happens"

We're this month's Siri & Harper. :o

Congrats Ruflina and Jennifer! :yeah:
