:wavey: Hi,

I thought it might be an idea to start a thread for the upcoming European clay court season.
Normally we have a thread per tournament, but unfortunately most of them are really short :sobbing: :o

This is Misa's schedule:

04/04 WTA Marbella (Q) // doubles with Alexandra Dulgheru
18/04 WTA Stuttgart (Q) // doubles with Kai-Chen Chang
25/04 WTA Estoril (Q) // doubles with Eleni Daniilidou - RU
02/05 50k Prague // doubles with Ana Vrljic
09/05 100k Prague // Petra Cetkovska - DOUBLES TITLE :)
22/05 Roland Garros (Q) // doubles with Lucie Safarova

Sasja
Apr 1st, 2011, 09:58 PM
Q-draw for Marbella is out. This is Misa's part of the draw:

(4) Michaella Krajicek (NED) vs (wc)Nanuli Pipiya (RUS) (WTA: 372)
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) vs (wc) Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (ESP)
Beatriz Garcia Vidagany (ESP) vs Elena Bogdan (ROU)
Ana Vrljic (CRO) vs (5) Nina Bratchikova (RUS)

Nice 1st round to start with :)

Glad I not opened a thread just for Marbella :lol:

She lost in Q1 to the nr 372 of the world wc-player Nanuli Pipya 6-7 (8) 2-6 :o

I know it's her 1st clay court match and it's not her favourite surface, but omg :help:

She was down 1-4 in the 1st set. Came back to 5-all and was serving, but lost serve. She broke straight back. But lost the TB 8-10 after 1hr15 min. She was down a break in the beginning of the 2nd, and couldn't get the re-break :(

Meusburger was serving for the 1st set at 5-2, but Misa came back and won 4 games in a row. Served for the 1st and 6-5, but lost serve. Nice win for Misa :)

Elwin.
Apr 17th, 2011, 01:17 PM
Tough match.
Really good comeback in that first set from 2-5 down.
Misa really needs ALOT of match rhythm on clay.

Tomorrow against Garcia Vidagany. Beatriz loves clay, so it will be a big test.
GL Misa!

Not sure if they will play their SF. Elini is supposed to be playing quallies in Madrid which starts tomorrow :unsure:

Apr 29th, 2011, 04:29 AM
Apparently Eleni can play on Saturday in Madrid, but I'm confused because Rodionova/Rodionova didn't play Jugic-Salkic/Jurak yet but in the OOP, Eleni and Misa are playing Jugic-Salkic/Jurak tomorrow :confused:

Anyways, I'm not sure what I want because Eleni has a great chance to do well in Madrid and if Misa and Eleni win the SF, then Eleni can't play Madrid :p

But either way, I hope that Misa and Eleni team up more because they would be great together, especially on grass as they are both grass GOATs and have won Den Bosch :p

This sucks, thank god the clay season is almost over. On to grass and HC :yeah:

Match report from Jean:
Karatantcheva/Krajicek
Very very good match from both girls; Krajicek relied on her good serve and powerful groundstrokes. I have to admit that the match was mostly depending on the Dutch errors or winners (the stats on the website are definitely wrong but it’s true that Krajicek hit many many winners). She was very aggressive and came to the net very often and very successfully.
Sesil’s serve was unfortunately as bad as yesterday, but she survived ONLY thanks to her amazing backhand. Hit flat, whether down the line or crosscourt, Sesil’s backhand was the gun of the match and Krajicek surprisingly kept on playing on it, especially in the very last games of the match, which were incredibly tight. Krajicek was in tears when coming out of the court…

Good luck in doubles with Lucie :yeah:
