I got 2 nice autographs from Mandy today! She is so beautiful and kind. Loved the way she plays also.
I'm so happy to have chance to watch her live in Ankara.
I hope she wins the tournament!

why do you think she chokes? This is the first tournament of the new season and it is normal to play 3 setter matches. I watch matches live so don't think she is fixing her matches

But to be honest, it's a little tough.

Same ol' same ol

Since US Open Mandy has won a grand total of 5 matches, 1 WTA Main draw, 1 WTA quali and 3 ITF.
After the bagel against Tatishvili at the US Open there has been a further 3 bagels in the final set.
I would never accuse her of tanking a match but it looks like she falls away mentally ie. gives up.

It's not easy being a supporter of Mandy. Maybe it's better not to expect anyhing then you won't be disappointed and any result is a bonus.

Well, on to Hobart quallies and make the best of it.

I hope at least to see her playing well down here in Melbourne.

^ but in this case she was playing a top 10 player :shrug:

Agreed. But did you see the match?

The first set was sort of OK. But the second was full of basic mistakes. More worryingly was the lack of attitude and willingness. She had no expression in her face and walked around like she was in a hurry to get off the court.

I wish she was trying something, breaking a raqcuet, playing serve and volley or anything else than just being a bystander to her own defeat.

(1)Mandy Minella (LUX) v Rebecca Marino (CAN)
Chiara Scholl (USA) v (wc)Yuxuan Zhang (CHN)
Tammi Patterson (AUS) v (wc)Janette Husarova (SVK)
Andreja Klepac (SLO) v (7)Garbine Muguruza (ESP)

Unlucky not being able to sneak into MD, hopefully someone withdraws soon so Mandy can just sneak in as this draw doesn't favour her much.

Marino she WILL have trouble against, Marino is tall and hits hard flat shots.
Scholl she should beat, Zhang I see her having trouble against as she does with every other Chinese player.
Patterson, Husarova, Klepac, if any of them beat Muguruza then they've done something special. Otherwise I wouldn't see them playing in QFR

Muguruza will be very tough as well, shes a young Spaniard that doesn't play like a Spaniard.

Lets see how she goes against Marino first.

Niculescu and Vesnina you would want to avoid, both played well last week.

Halep and Bobusic you would want. Both are winnable matches for her. I hope she gets Halep though because I like Bobusic and it will be a great chance if Bojana won a round.

Luxembourg’s Mandy Minella displayed big forehands and perseverance to defeat Canada’s Rebecca Marino in the first round of qualifying today. After winning a close first set tie-break, Minella, the No.1 seed in qualifying, broke ahead in the second to win the match 7-6 6-4.

“I feel I can progress well in this tournament but when it is windy I definitely don’t play my best tennis so it’s really hard. The harder the wind is, the more it doesn’t look like tennis,” Minella said.

I really hopes she get one of the big guns in the AO draw, putting her on Rod Laver or Hisense. A big name is the only way she is getting center stage at a slam and she needs to see them outside New York.

Thankfully I am able to see her whichever court she gets, but it would be nice to see her play a Serena, an Azarenka or a Stosur on Rod Laver. And btw. I actually think she could have a chance against a nervous home favorite in Stosur.

If she doesn't get a big name at least get her someone she can beat and move on.

Nice doubles win, easy win. Didn't really play that well. But my god them spaniards played bad, especially Lino. If she didn't want to make any sort of effort, why show up.
Anyway, tomorrow Mandy gets a winners trophy or a losers trophy to show she been there.

About AO draw.
A qualifier can be a bit tricky. On paper she should be easier, but she does come in with 3 wins and knowledge of court conditions. But lets hope for the best and a match against Cibulkova wouldn't be all that bad.

Mandy is playing Paris next, and not in the lineup for Fed Cup :scratch:

Yes because of safety worries.

Yes because of safety worries.

I think the safety concerns playing in Acapulco should be much greater. Acapulco is no longer the holiday paradise is once was.

But she's the top seed? Do you think that the clay doesn't suit her so that her seeding is irrelevant?

She's struggling with Arantxa Parra Santonja now, lost the first set but now up a break 4-3 in the second.

She won 62 in the third, but got quite a lot of help from her opponent.

Nice comeback after a nervy start.

Good thing APS had the serving jibs. And why did she start playing them moonballs to slow play down when she was dominating things playing fast?

Well... kudos Mandy for hanging in there.

Well APS was the hardest qualifier, well done though.

If she gets Duque Marino now, that will be even trickier..

There is a lot more stats including point by point, set by set, that I am not going to post here. The post would be a mile long.

Shot placement, which is the really interesting information, is unfortunately only available on Hawk-Eye courts.

The real turning point between set 1 and 2,3 is the massive drop in APS service performance and Mandy getting the upperhand in the short rallies.

Article on Mandy from WTA

MINELLA AVOIDS SHOCK IN CALI
No.1 seed Mandy Minella rallied from a set down to defeat Arantxa Parra Santonja and reach the second round in Cali.
Published Feburary 12, 2013 11:43

Mandy Minella
CALI, Colombia - When top seed Mandy Minella touched down in Cali on Saturday she was greeted by the tremors of the 6.9 magnitude earthquake that struck southwest Colombia.

And for an hour or so on Tuesday, Arantxa Parra Santonja, Minella's first round opponent at the Copa Bionaire, threatened to create her own shockwaves. Having rattled through the opening set, Parra Santonja built a 3-2 lead in the second to move within touching distance of a place in the last 16.

The Spaniard, who reached a career-high ranking of No.46 back in 2010, spent much of last season plying her trade on the ITF Circuit, and with the finishing line in sight she faltered, allowing Minella to reel off the next four games to force a decider.

Minella, who - under the tournament's previous guise as an ITF event - finished as runner-up at the Club Campestre de Cali 12 months ago, carried this momentum with her to break serve midway through the third set en route to a 26 63 62 win.

"It was a very tough start in the first set," Minella said. "I couldn't play my game and Arantxa was playing very well.

"I was happy that I could change it and get better in the second and third sets and hopefully I can play better in my next match because I love it here and want to have another good run!"

While Minella was forced to dig deep for her place in the second round, there were no such troubles for fellow seeds Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino and Alexandra Panova.

Panova, the No.4 seed this week, defeated qualifier Masa Zec-Peskiric, 63 62, with No.2 seed Arruabarrena-Vecino even more impressive in swatting aside Chiara Scholl, 62 60, in little over an hour.

Elsewhere there were opening round wins for Sharon Fichman, who upset No.8 seed Tatjana Malek, 62 60, Julia Cohen, Sesil Karatantcheva, Estrella Cabeza Candela, Eugenie Bouchard and Colombian wildcard Catalina Castaño.

Hey @ TheFramer, where did you find those stats? :p

I have access to statistical databases and are able to pull match stats from almost every ATP, WTA and ITF match played, and some other sports(Golf, Football etc.). Many lower ranked matches are not covered.

Players playing on Hawk-Eye covered courts get a DVD containing their Hawk-Eye stats. They are really interesting if you are a coach or just the average analysis freak.
