Susan Day's Monday Blog

Hello everybody, I am so excited to be the 2nd official blogger of FWTT, I thought this was a great idea by Nthama. Speaking of Nthama, today she invited me to a teaching clinic today for the kids, it was so fun, Nthama is so good with kids I just hope I can be as good as her. I arrived here in Luxembourg yesterday coming back from a challenger in Jous-Les-Tours.
Today I saw my draw and I play a talented junior in the first qualifying round, I saw her play last week and I was very impressed, she does everything right and she can be very dangerous when her game fully develops. I feel confident right now because I have been having real good results both singles and doubles in the challenger level, beaten some really good players, and winning when I am not playing my best.
This week I am playing doubles with a girl i train with, Pippa Mydelton, this is her first ever professional tournament. She has got alot of weapons and can be very dangerous in the future. My doubles partner the last 3 weeks is in Moscow.
This week my coach isn't here with me, he is currently with his second protege an italain junior. My mom is here with me this week.

I hope you all enjoyed. See you all tom morrow.

Hello everyone, today's blog is going to be short because nothing really happened.
The tournament starts tomorrow and I play first on center. Me and Pippa had a 3 hour practicing session today, we found are game are very complementary, and I think we can do good. Tonight is the player party I am going and I will talk about it tomorrow, along with my match.

Sorry for it being so short

Susan Day's Wednesday Blog

Hello everybody, last night's player party was amazing, I meet so many nice and wonderful people and can't wait until the next player party.
I am very ecstatic right now, I am in the main draw!! So in my first qualifying match I played very well, my opponent made me hit deep and paint the lines, I was up to the challenge and I made a lot of my kill shots, that gives me so much confidence.
In my second qualifying match, my opponent who beat me the last 2 times we played, so I was nervous going in. In the match again I made a lot of my kill shots, this is quite surprising because I usually never do. My opponent is a really good player, so beating her has given me a a lot of confidence going into the main draw.
Tomorrow I played Nthama on center court, I think it is going to be on T.V. It is obviously going to be a tough match because she is one of the best players in the world not by accident. I feel like I can win because I have been playing great and I have gotten used to the courts.

Okay that is all for now. Bye everyone, see you tomorrow.

The junior continued to play outstanding tennis in this very close match, the only one where a seed was toppled.

[2]Bowden/Mbangu-Zeric def. Hykova/Minella 6/3, 3/6, 7/6(6)
Surprisingly tough for Pamela and Nthama, but after staying in the third to get a tie-break they won four points on the trot to seal the tie-break 8-6.

Berenika has to win with Samantha to secure her place in Bali :scared: And of course if Bali's managers won't give any WCs :scared:

And right now Alijah is 1st alternate to play Bali :oh:

Susan Day's Friday Blog

Hello everyone won both of my matches today.
In my singles match I had never before had heard or seen my opponent, so it took a little of getting use to, when I got a hold of it I never looked back when I won 10 out of the last 12 games.
In my doubles match with Pipa, it was much more close because our opponent were highly skilled veterans, so I was kind of surprised when we won.
My boyfriend arrived today, it is so nice to see him, he is here to support me.
Tomorrow I play the opponent I played in the last qualifying match, so going in she should have nothing to lose, but I should feel confident knowing I have already beat her on these courts. In doubles me and Pipa play Nthama and Bowden, so I know for a fact it is going to be tough.
That is all for today
Bye :kiss:

Yay first Tour Semi-Final!!!

Go Hykova!

But now I'll lose. :lol:

Singles Results, Semifinals

[7]Berenika Wojnarowska-Wisniewska def. [4]Samantha Soren 7/6(2), 7/6(1)
Berenika beats Samantha for the third time in a row; the edge clearly showed in the tie-breaks.

[Q]Susan Day def. [LL]Jessica Hykova 7/6(4), 6/3
No one was surprised at this outcome, Susan's game was well suited to Jessica's.

Oct 22nd, 2011, 09:39 PM
Doubes Results, Semifinals

[1]McKrain/Skankhova def. Pemovic/Tenesova 5/7, 7/6(9), 6/4
Clair and Elena came back from the dead to triumph 11-9 in a drama-filled tie-break, complete with tears. It really was only one possible result from there.

Day/Mydelton def. [2]Bowden/Mbangu-Zeric 7/6(4), 6/3
Susan enlists the help of Pippa to beat Nthama a second time. Not a great warm-up for some of the stars of the singles circuit.

Oct 22nd, 2011, 09:48 PM
