Hope she can keep going on with that confidence from Bad Gastein.

I think It was time that she got her own thread apart from Luxembourg tennis.

Garcia has a great game but doesn't really understand matchplay so it's a good chance for Mandy.
Mandy needs to keep her focus at the big moments because that is Caroline's weakness, she tends to make bad decisions at crucial moments.

In doubles I would be hoping for good things from Mandy and Steffi- that's a very pretty team as well.

Looks like Mandy used her superior fighting abilities to win. Garcia is just not very good at playing big points despite her talent. A shame really for her, but good for Mandy. I hope she can go far here.

Lost against Oprandi 5:7 5:7

I'm not sure what happened with Mandy but something went horribly wrong. :lol:

Minella leads 3:0 in the first set, has the opportunity to serve out the set at 5:4. Oprandi wins.

Minella leads 4:0 in the second set, huge choke.... 4:4. S has the opportunity AGAIN to serve it out at 5:4.

Doesn't happen of course and Oprandi wins.

Looks like a massive choke everytime she was leading comfortably.

Mandy :hug:. She has definitely improved in the last year or so, I think she is really stepping up her game, but she lost the rhythm today and started missing groundies all over the place, especially the forehand, mostly in the net I think but also some long. She's looking very very fit of late as well, I don't think the heat bothered her as much as a lot of other players.

Translation: :)

Claude Gandolf; it's nice that you say that, but the federation should have asked a wildcard for you or asked earlier so that you could have gone there too.

Mandy Minella; the Federation and the COSL (Luxembourg's Olympic Comittee) have asked a wild card for me, that's all they could do.

Laurent Schüssler;, I would have liked to see Mandy at the Olympic Games but it has nothing to do that the WC has been asked too late. The ITF has there own rules they need to respect.

Sam Nasseri; it's a pity but she will be back in 4 years.

Mandy Minella; by the way, the rules the ITF is practicing for it's players are mostly unknown. There isn't an official list of those people who are accepted, and 2 have withdrawn because of injuries. They have been replaced by WCs where you don't know why they did receive them. It's not based on rankings or performances.

Claude Gandolf; yes it's a pity that Mandy isn't participating but in 4 years she will be there for sure! I'm really proud of her. She is always playing well and still stays humble. Just great!

Sam Nasseri; so if I've understood well, the injured players can only be repaced by doubles players but haven't looked yet if the replacing players are also playing doubles or mixed

Jean-Claude Michel; the selection system is not fair

Mandy Minella; Ah, thanks Sam, now I know something more

Sam Nasseri; I have explained that for the men and I imagine that it's the same way for the women. Nadal out -> Feliciano Lopez in, and he is also playing doubles for Spain, Monfils out -> Benneteau in, and he is playing doubles for France. Good luck for Baku.

So the rain kind of fucked around with my life today. All the matches I wanted to see ended up on at the same time, and Vika got on too late. :o

Started off with Mandy & Olivia on Court 15. On my way there, a wild Lucie appeared!
http://i998.photobucket.com/albums/af110/tennischica/USO%202012/A1T-wrECEAANS8m.jpg?t=1346125731
She and her coach were talking a mile a minute and then Lucie walked off and left her coach with her bag :lol:. I didn't wanna be such a creeper, so it's a little far away.

Mandy was cruising early, so I went to Ashe to stalk Eva pretend to care about watch the defending champion. But I was in the nosebleeds, so say hello to the ants on Ashe!
http://i998.photobucket.com/albums/af110/tennischica/USO%202012/A1UKOsxCcAEZJPF.jpg?t=1346127849

Then the rain came, and I hid under the Chase tent for like two hours. After the rain, I saw Mandy and Olivia were going to a third set so I went and took a seat over there. That's when things got cray. So Mandy had these guys rooting for her, dancing and cheering every time she won a point. And then were very respectful, didn't cheer Olivia's UEs or yell during the points. They were awesome. I wish they were my friends.
http://i998.photobucket.com/albums/af110/tennischica/USO%202012/DSC03543.jpg?t=1346126466

So then these little bints came over and kept trying to cheer for Olivia purely because they thought Mandy's guys were annoying. Tried Oli-via! Failed. Tried Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi Oi Oi! Failed. So then they mocked Mandy grunt, which legit, when I tell you it wasn't even a grunt, it wasn't even anything. They irritated me and thought AUS was Austria, and didn't know where Luxembourg was. They irritated Mandy too, because they were hanging on the gate so after Mandy held for 41* she fist pumped and Allez'ed in their general direction.
http://i998.photobucket.com/albums/af110/tennischica/USO%202012/DSC03533.jpg?t=1346126206

http://i998.photobucket.com/albums/af110/tennischica/USO%202012/DSC03542.jpg?t=1346126502
Fast forward to when Mandy served for the match, and on MP after a long rally Olivia hit a forehand swing volley winner for deuce. Then Mandy goes into the shady corner, and pukes. Just starts dry heaving on the court. Think back to Flavia vs. Peng at USO2K11. I was also there for that. Maybe it's me. I don't know. It was hot as balls out there, and they were having really long rallies. So Olivia is confused, and Mandy is even more confused and wants to keep playing. The chair told her it's in the rule she had to call the trainer to come clean it, and Mandy's like "Well, do I have to sit? I don't understand..." So they sat down for a bit until the trainer came, cleaned it and we continued. Mandy saved BP with a serve winner, hit an ace with a huge ALLEZ for MP, it was epic. The umpire got confused and called GSM but corrected herself right away. Rogowska hit a BH wide to end it. They shook hands and Rogowska couldn't get off the court fast enough. I looked down for two seconds and she was gone. Mandy then ran over and proceeded to high five the cool Luxembourg pride dudes. She signed a bunch of autographs too, she's a sweetie.

So I wanted to try to take a pic with Mandy if I could after the match because SHE WALKED RIGHT BY ME. But she looked like just wanted to get back to the locker room so I just yelled at her "Mandy, you were awesome!" and she turned and smiled and said thank you. :hearts:


Great report :) I'm glad the guys kept cheering for Mandy and got those damn Aussies silent.

Firstly, now that she's gone up the ranking i think she needs to understand the pressure of being the favorite and not the underdog, and find out how to handle it. Too many winnable matches are thrown away.

Second, she needs to find a cure for those concentration lapses. I saw her matches in New York courtside and it's a little strange how in really good runs everything suddenly falls to the wayside.

It's a bit of a shame because at her best I think she can compete for a top 30 spot.

Great to see some bouncebackability after dropping the secons set. Even against a good friend it is nice to keep the bragging rights (2-0).

It's at the end of the season when everybody else is half-dead differences can be made. So onwards and upwards !

Yes, you need to take your opportunities if you are feeling fresh and opponents are not.

She will play Urszula. H2H is 1-1. Mandy won the most recent one at the French in 2011, 2 and 5. On the other hand Mandy lost 1 and 2 to 15-yr old Urszula back in 2006. So I guess Mandy improved more in the following 5 years than Ula :lol:.

Not sure which way this one goes- Urszula is in good form right now apparently.

Sitting in my office in Kirchberg, Letzebuerg following the liveticker i feel compelled to comment on the match.

I know U. Radwanska is no push-over but giving the match away like that is no good. In the first set Mandy won only 11 points on her own serve.

I commented earlier on Mandys mental setup, but this time i'm not going to blame her. Instead I blame ze german, her coach. Maybe he's the culprit not being able to prepare her with a proper gameplan. I don't know the guy but with the small amount of money he makes from Mandys game i don't see him as a top shelf coach.

This may all sound a bit negative, but believe me sharing an office with 4 people all from Luxembourg we only want the best for her.

She may have the strangest hot and cold game in the world. Winning 4 losing 4, losing 3 winning 3 and so on is a bit weird.

I do believe that apart from a handfull of players she can compete with anyone on her hot streaks. Everybody out there have bad spells within a match but the trick is to shorten them and get back on track quickly. Winning 4 losing only 2 and she'll be laughing.

Tough Q-draw in China. Camila Giorgi and Heather Watson.

Camila Giorgi usually playes really good against italians, beating Flavia and Franny recently. Maybe the fact that Mandy is only half italian will ease Camila a bit and she only plays half good.
Camila is aggresive Mandy needs to be aggresive too.

Yet again she didn't get a lucky draw. First Lisicki and then Venus.

Although, I think she have a fair chance against Lisicki. If she keep bombarding Lisickis backhand with low slices, she is gonna spray them all over the place, and anything short Mandy can kill with the forehand.
If we take away the grass court season, Lisicki has hardly won a match all year.

Venus on the other hand, I am afraid there is nothing more to do than attack it with a wing and a prayer.

Anywho, looking forward to it.

TheFramer
Oct 15th, 2012, 08:44 PM
Nearly missed the start of the match coming in from my golf round. Good thing Hradecka and Paszek took their time.

As usual Mandy were quick out of the gate, albeit with a little help from Barthel she played fairly decent in the first set which she could have won just as easily. Shortly in to the second set I and everybody else in the room knowing Mandy saw the writing on the wall. She fell absolutely flat.

After a match like this I have a few things to let of my chest:

Court coverage:
She plays really far from the baseline, I mean, she couldn’t get any further away if she drove. She does show a clean pair of heels but that is a lot of ground to cover back there. I don’t know if it is her full western and the big swing that makes her think she needs the extra time or it is just too much clay court time.

The serve:
Every time she served Barthel in the forehand she went for it and hit a lot of winners, and yet Mandy kept serving there. I simply don’t know why she did that. And btw., did them 3 foot faults play in her mind for a bit?

Coaching:
I heard afterwards that her coach told her to stop creating angles and play safe down the middle or back cross court. What a spanner ! If you got a game based on a really good forehand like Mandy what is the point of playing no-risk down the middle. You have got to be Wozniacki to play a retriever game like that. If she wants to control her weapons she has to trust she can set them up creating the point using angles.

There is no doubt the girl can play tennis, we have all seen it on her best days. But I don’t think she has got the right coaching, in fact I and the people sat around me thinks he is no good tactically. She desperately needs a new one, and if no one else will, I think I could persuade someone to scrape a few quid together for the cause, ehhh… including myself of course. Luxembourgers love it when foreigners appreciate and support their locals. It gives a lot of credit.

If she can keep away from the Bierzelten there is another opportunity to go far in a tournament.

The draw is certainly favourable until Jovanovski in the semi. Nobody inside the top 100 before that. Pliskova first up.

If she doesn't make the final she can always go and watch FC Bayern win at the Allianz Arena on sunday.

Why is she wearing that outfit though :scratch: isn't that the clay season one?

I suspect she has a fairly basic sponsor deal with Wilson. Not a lot more than bespoke racquets + free clothing and a (too) small check.

Wilson doesn't do much in clothing compared to the giants. I guess the focus in on the ball striking equipment. So they probably dont care if she wear the older stuff.

Personally I think she could be playing in a bin liner and still look the part.
