I thought Let's just already open a thread on her upcoming ITF campaign for the end of the season. :)

So her schedule:

10 October Joue-Les-Tours, France 50k
17 October Limoges, France 50k
24 October Barnstaple, UK 75k
31 October Nantes, France 50k + H or Ismaning, Germany 50k + H

All tournaments are played Indoors.

So she will play Joue-Les-Tours next week and she will be the 5th Seed.

Good luck Misa :hug:

Misa will be playing doubles here with Marta Domachowska.

Against FEUERSTEIN (FRA) / LAURENDON (FRA) in R1.

MarkNL
Oct 9th, 2011, 07:05 PM
omg, against her doubles partner in Olomouc, Renata Voracova. (WTA: 149) Seeing her form of the past weeks she can beat her.
Good luck Misa! :D

Elwin.
Oct 9th, 2011, 07:55 PM
Winnable first round :yeah:
Good luck Misa!

MarkNL
Oct 11th, 2011, 04:34 PM
Michaella Krajicek (NED) def. Renata Voracova (CZE) 1-2 ret.

Voracova retreated with a wrist injury. At least Misa is through :) Next round most probably vs. (BUL) Elitsa Kostova. (WTA: 155)

BTW, seems to be some confusion whether she was 2-1 up or 1-2 down, because it's not really clear from whose point of view she's writing. Not that it matters much. :)

Sasja
Oct 11th, 2011, 07:03 PM
Shame Renata had to retire.
Would have been good practice for Misa to have played a full match here.

Still happy she is through to the 2nd round :)

Only doubles tomorrow for her.

MarkNL
Oct 12th, 2011, 05:56 PM
I read she has withdrawn from Poitiers and thus she will be playing 75k Barnstaple in 2 weeks. Good decision imo, Poitiers had an extremely strong field and she would have to play qualies. :)

MarkNL
Oct 12th, 2011, 09:07 PM
She lost her doubles match today :hug: Johanna Konta and Alison Riske defeated Misa and her partner Domachowska 7-6(5) 6-4. :hug:

No big deal, she needs to focus on singles now :)

Well done Misa :)

MarkNL
Oct 13th, 2011, 09:52 PM
Vs. Julie Coin whom she defeated in Quebec in 3 sets, Coin won against Voegele in a 3rd-set tiebreaker so I guess she will be slightly tired. :) Wouldn't underestimate her though :)

I have a good feeling about this tournament :oh:

MarkNL
Oct 14th, 2011, 05:32 PM
Michaella Krajicek(NED) def. (FRA) Julie Coin 6-7 6-1 7-5! :D :cheer:

Very tough match, but she pulled it off! :D Hopefully that will give her confidence that she can win those difficult matches :D
Into the semi's :D

Now vs. Hlavackova (WTA: 93) or Riske. (WTA: 146)

Both tough opponents: Hlavackova dumped out Safarova in Quebec City last month and Riske pushed Zvonareva to 3 sets at Wimbledon.

MarkNL
Oct 14th, 2011, 05:41 PM
And in total now, she has won 10 of her last 12 matches :cheer:

Sasja

Good win though :yeah:

MarkNL
Oct 14th, 2011, 09:21 PM
She'll play title defender Alison Riske. She defeated Andrea Hlavackova 6-7(7) 6-4 6-3.

Both Misa and Alison played long quarterfinal matches. So who is more fit tomorrow?

Sasja
Oct 15th, 2011, 06:54 AM
I wish she tweeted a bit more about her match but the score.

Good win though :yeah:

I know. I was checking her tweets as well. Was hoping to find out more how the match went :sobbing:

Oct 15th, 2011, 07:03 AM
OOP Saturday

1. Alexandra Panova (RUS. 7) vs Akgul Amanmuradova (UZB, 6) (starts at 14.30 hrs)
2. Misa Krajicek (NED, 4) vs Alison Riske (USA, 5)

Alison has had 7 straight losses coming into this tournament. But a nice win now over Hlavackova.

Hope Misa serves well and reach her 1st final of the year :cheer:

Good luck Misa :rocker:

Elwin.
Oct 15th, 2011, 07:37 AM
Good luck Misa :yeah: Going to be a tough match. Riske is a complete different player on fast surfases (grass, indoor)

Elwin.
Oct 15th, 2011, 06:47 PM
SF: Riske def. Krajicek 61/75 :sad:

Misa served for the 2nd set at 5-4. Not a shame to lose against Alison. She is really good on fast surfaces

Versus Mijacika in the first round. (WTA: 198)

She can do it :D But a quarterfinal encounter with Cirstea looms. :tape:

Sasja
Oct 17th, 2011, 05:27 AM
Yeah, she should be able to reach the QF and we will just see after that. Could have been a lot worse though. I mean, Riske isn't seeded ;)

Good luck Misa :cheer:

MarkNL
Oct 17th, 2011, 07:58 AM
Wow, you're right. Imagine what had happened if Misa had to play Riske in Round 1 :o

Closer than expected, but it's a win ;)

Now against Natassja Burnett (WTA: 233) :cheer: Burnett has had good results this year, but mostly on clay.

MisaKrajicek Michaella Krajicek
Well I won 6-7,6-3,6-4 but it was definitely as @bgtennisnation says UGLY :) tomorrow I play 3rd after 11am vs. N.Burnett #Limoges

Must have been UGLY indeed :lol: 3 sets against Mijacika :hysteric:

MarkNL
Oct 18th, 2011, 08:24 PM
Hmm, she won't be pleased with the way she played I guess. I must say i'd expected a straight sets victory. :l

But she won, and that's what counts right now. But it will be tough as well against Burnett. She won the 50k Olomouc, the 25k Monteroni and the 25k in Madrid.
All tournaments were played on clay I must add to that. So Misa definitely has a chance, As I think the fast indoor courts suit her better. :)

Good luck :D

Since working with Eric, she is W/L 11-3 :yeah:

Elwin.
Oct 19th, 2011, 03:17 PM

question how far will Krajicek have too go to get back into the top 100

Sasja
Oct 21st, 2011, 06:27 AM
question how far will Krajicek have too go to get back into the top 100

With this QF, Misa will be ranked 109 with 616 points (according to TBE).
For top 100 she needs around 680 points. So even if she wins the title here, she will not be top 100 next week.

She is also playing 75k Barnstaple next week and 50k+H Ismaining the week after that. So maybe if she does really well there....

But she has no points to defend until February where she reached the 2nd round at WTA Memphis & SF at WTA Kuala Lumpur.

MarkNL
Oct 21st, 2011, 09:02 AM
Hopefully she doesn't lose early in Kuala Lumpur, otherwise that will cost her a massive amount of points...

MarkNL
Oct 21st, 2011, 03:36 PM
Sorana Cirstea(ROU) def. Michaella Krajicek(NED) 6-3 7-6(2). :hug:

Too bad, Bibi and Misa both lost today.

This is actually Misa worst tournament since the US Open. :rolls:

Elwin.
Oct 21st, 2011, 03:38 PM
No shame to lose against Sorana. She's been playing well lately.
It was a really close match :o Misa only got broken once in the whole match

MarkNL

Misa's Great-Grandmother passed away today at the age of 96. She was quite sad about it...

MarkNL
Oct 23rd, 2011, 04:55 PM
Misa is playing 75k Barnstaple this week. Alison Riske is unseeded and a dangerous floater in the draw. :unsure:

Sorry for your loss :hug:

Misa has been playing so well lately :D

Did anyone notice, that ever since she started working with Eric, she lost 3x to the eventual champion (Cirstea, Zahlavova-Strycova, Riske), and 1x to SarinGOAT, and that's it :worship:

Keep going in Barnstaple! :bounce:
It looks like she won't have to qualify for the AO either :hearts:
And if she keeps up her form in Barnstaple and Ismaning/Nantes, maybe top 100? :bowdown:

She also won her doubles with Caroline Garcia vs. Stefanie Voegele/Mandy Minella 7-6 6-4 :cheer:

Although the gave away a 3-0 lead in the 2nd and Voegele and Minella leveled at 4-4, they managed to close it out :yeah:

17 October Limoges, France 50k
24 October Barnstaple, UK 75k
31 October Nantes, France 50k + H or Ismaning, Germany 50k + H



And Misa is still not done after these tournaments. She is on the EL for 75k Phoenix starting from the 7th of November as well :eek:
(MD nr 5 atm) I guess she really wants to finish the year in the top 100 :p

That's weird :shrug: She recently said that Barnstaple and Ismaning would be her last tournaments.
Wouldn't be a bad idea to play more tournaments though.
Opole 25K was her first priority for that week (7 nov), but she withdrew at 25 October.

Edit: She's also on the EL of Bratislava 25K (14 nov) :eek:

MarkNL
Oct 28th, 2011, 05:38 PM
Weird :shrug:

I thought she would end her season in Ismaning. Don't mind that she is playing more tournaments though, I guess she really wants to secure a top-100 spot?

Elwin.
Oct 30th, 2011, 10:12 AM
Misa withdrew from Bratislava (14-11) today

Sasja
Oct 30th, 2011, 10:51 AM
Misa withdrew from Bratislava (14-11) today

To be honest, I'm glad she WD there :p

I mean, it would be too much of a crazy schedule. I can understand she wanted to play a few tournaments at the end of the season with her new coach, work on her game and getting her ranking back up again. It seems like she wants to end the season in the top 100. She is close though, at 108 atm according to TBE and about 40 points away from top 100.

But I much rather have her 100% fit in Australia next year then playing too much smaller tournaments right now with the risk of getting injured.

MarkNL
Oct 30th, 2011, 12:56 PM
Is she travelling to the States for just the 75k in Phoenix? That would be a long trip for just 1 tournament :l

MarkNL
Oct 31st, 2011, 03:32 PM
Misa's campaign has landed in southern Germany and to be precise in Ismaning :) She'll play a 50K+H here.

And surprise surprise, the draw came out today!

And her first round opponent is....

(SVK)Lenka Jurikova (WTA: 240)

Should be no problem :)

Misa's Quarter:

(1)Sofia Arvidsson(77) vs. Sarah Gronert(205)
Tetyana Arefyeva(263) vs. Naomi Broady(208)
Kristina Kucova(192) vs. Kiki Bertens(199)
(7)Michaella Krajicek(108) vs. Lenka Jurikova(240)

A 2nd round clash with Kiki and a QF clash with Sofia are looming.

Misa has reacted on her withdrawal!

Dear Fans,
unfortunately i had to withdraw from Ismaning very sick due to bronchitis :(
I will be on antibiotics for the next 7-10days and then hope to slowly resume my training on and off court.

The good news is that i will still play two more tournaments this year:
21.11.- $75.000+H Toyota,Japan
28.11.- $75.000 Dubai, UAE

My coach and I decided to play these two tournaments based on the fact that i have only played 18 tournaments this year and could use some more matches. Also im ranked #108 now and it would be HUGE if i could finish the year inside the top-100. But that only a bonus, first i have to get healthy.

Wish you all a nice November,
xxx Misa

Seems like she's in Amsterdam :) So, she will still play 2 more tournaments, 75K+H in Toyota Japan and 75k Dubai, UAE.

Get well soon Misa :hug:

Sasja
Nov 1st, 2011, 06:47 PM
Misa :hug:

Sad to hear, but a wise decision. Not taking any risks. Feel better, rest up and prepare for the last tournaments of the season.

Hope she will reach her goal and finish the year in the top 100 :cheer:
That would be so great for her and a huge confidence boost for the new season :D

Elwin.
Nov 3rd, 2011, 10:09 AM
It's a positive sign that Misa is not taking any risks. Has been different in the past.
I think she can do well in Japan and the UAE. Toyota 75K mostly is quite weak, especially when you compare it to the European ITF's. I do expect some good Japanese to play there (KDK, Morita, Doi, Nara) Entry list should come out soon.
Dubai probably will be packed with good players.

http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?p=20443948#post20443948 Vote for Misa :oh:

Sasja
Nov 6th, 2011, 01:38 PM
ATM Misa is nr 3 on the EL of Toyota (WD deadline is 8th of November) :)

EDIT: A few WD and Misa is now the top seed :D

She also confirmed she will be defending her title at the Tennis Masters (starts 14th of December) :cheer:

"Its a great way to prepare for the new season and one of the few opportunities to play in front of a home crowd.
I have won the title 4-times so im going to be aiming for my fifth Championship!"

Going to be a short holiday for Misa :oh:

Doi and Date-Krumm have passed her in the rankings this week so if neither of them has any points to lose she won't be the top seed, right? :scratch:

Arantxa currently seeded 6th and Misa is the 11th entry, but unseeded. Can still change though :)

MarkNL
Nov 21st, 2011, 12:38 PM
Okay, so we're kicking off the 75k+H in Toyota, with Misa playing :D

So, the draw has been made and her section looks like this.

(3)Michaella Krajicek (NED) v So-Jung Kim (KOR)
Elina Svitolina (UKR) v Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ)
Tadeja Majeric (SLO) v (wc)Mari Tanaka (JPN)
(8)Caroline Garcia (FRA) v (Q)Yuka Higuchi (JPN)

First round opponent is So-Jung Kim (WTA: 297)So that is an easy round. :)

But my worst fear has come true: Yaroslava Shvedova is very probably her 2nd round opponent. :sad:
She is in great form lately and has reached the Quarterfinals of the French Open in 2009.
Misa can beat her, but she needs to play pretty well. :o

She is playing doubles, as she did in Barnstaple, with French talent Caroline Garcia. :)
Their first round opponents are 2 players from Taiwan, Chan Chin-Wei and Chen Yi.

Sasja

Well done :)
If Slava is playing because she tweeted about an operation.

I also read it and in fact she has withdrawn! Svitolina played Lucky Loser Aoyama and won 6-3 6-3.

So now Misa's next opponent will be Elina Svitolina (WTA: 272) :)

That has opened up the draw a bit for Misa.

But a shame for Slava. Not a good year for her in singles. Hope she recovers soon and can return in the top 100 next season :sad: :hug:

Misa in the QF :dance:

She def Elina Svitolina (WTA: 272) 6-2 6-3 :)

Now against Tadeja Majeric (WTA: 282) who def Misa's doubles partner Caroline Garcia (FRA, 8) (WTA: 150) in 3 sets.

So that's 32 ranking points so far and 58 if she reaches the SF :oh:

Good luck Misa :cheer:

EDIT: TBE updated the rankings and with this QF she is ranked nr 100 atm :oh:
Mission accomplished :devil:

Michaella Krajicek/Caroline Garcia def. Remi Tezuka/Akiko Yonemura 6-4 6-4 :yeah:

Misa at #100? That would be great! :D

Last time she was in the top 100 was June '08 :oh: That was right before her QF Wimbledon points of '07 came off.

I'm sure getting back in the top 100 really means a lot to her.

This is fantastic :D
Hopefully she can win her QF against Majeric!

Nov 25th, 2011, 05:24 AM
Misa is in the SF :D

She def Majeric 7-6(7) 6-2 after being 2-6 down in the TB :p

SF probably against the top seed Kimiko Date-Krumm :cheer:

Later today her doubles SF!

Michaella Krajicek def. Tadeja Majeric 7-6(7) 6-2! :woohoo:

She was down 2-6 In the tiebreak, saved 5 SP's to win it 9-7. :worship:
Then went on to win the 2nd set easily. :D

Semi probably against Date-Krumm. That would be an interesting match :)

Misa :banana: Great fighting! Now nothing to lose against Kimiko. Kimiko has been blazing through her matches so far.
Misa and Garcia also won their doubles match, so they're in the final :yeah:

Misa WD from her SF against Kimiko and her doubles final because of a knee injury :bigcry: :hysteric:

Poor girl just can't get a break. She was having a good week, re-entered the top 100 after 3,5 years and now this. Shame because the match against Kimiko would have been a good test and also Dubai next week :hug:

She wrote on facebook:

Dear Fans,

After a great week here in Toyota im ending my tournament withdrawing from both semifinal singles and final doubles. My knee has been bothering me through out the week and today its impossible for me to play at all.
Unfortunately I also wont be going to Dubai next week.
Im going back home to have a scan done and to determine what exactly is wrong.
I ll keep you guys up to date and hopefully its not that serious.

Keep your fingers crossed,

MichaŽlla


Hopefully it's not too serious and she will be ok for the AO :hug: Must have been tough, but a good decision to WD and not risking the injury getting worse like she has done in the past. OMG I feel so bad for her. This is such a sad way to end the season :sobbing: :tears:

Misa :sad: That's very unfortunate. I was really looking forward to her match with Kimiko. But it's smart to withdraw and not take any risks. At least she accomplished her goal. She is top-100 again. :) Will she still play tennis masters in Rotterdam?

Elwin.
