Interview with Michaella Krajicek

http://i49.tinypic.com/34zn13d.jpg

Dutch tennis star Michaella Krajicek is back in business. After a couple of tough years with injuries, illnesses and family problems she is back on track on the WWW Tour with some good results in the past weeks. We talked to her before the start of the big upcoming tournament in Dubai this week.

Hi Michaella, how are you doing?

I'm great, how are you? :)

I'm fine! Well, let's talk about your recent results on Tour. You made the finals of your first tournament on the WWW Tour in Cape Town, losing to Polona Hercog in that final. You also defeated Venus Williams in the semifinals there. However, Venus has been your 'angstgegner' in the past 2 tournaments, beating you in Casablanca and Cairo. What do you make of your own performance?

Yeah, Cape Town was definitely a great week for me. To make the finals in my first tournament was a dream run I couldn't have predicted beforehand. I hope to win a title as soon as possible of course but there are some tough players on tour. On my record against Venus, it's definitely frustrating to lose 2 times in a row to her after that 64 75 victory in Cape Town but you know, that's tennis. One day you win, One day you lose. I'm just going to keep working and improving my game!

What are your expectations for the upcoming week in Dubai?

I really like Dubai! There are a lot of shops so there is plenty to do off-court. The facilities are really state-of-the-art so I'm looking forward to a great week here. I hope to maintain my good form and hopefully I can go far. Thanks to my good results I have a Bye in the first round so I have some extra time to practice and work on my game.

What would point out as your weapons? What are your weaknesses?

My serve is definitely my big weapon. My older brother Richard was always known for his serve and I always wanted to have a serve just like him! Also I've worked on my forehand and it has really helped me play more aggressively. I'm still working on my fitness, but that's improving every week! It's all a process of learning from your losses and getting confidence from your wins! :)

What is your favourite surface?

Grass for sure! I like the speed, and grass suits my game well! My serve is a big plus on grass and I can really play aggressive! Thats the reason why I don't like clay. It's holding back my serve and because my fitness is still a point I need to work on it doesn't suit me because the points are long. Because I like to finish the points quickly, grass suits me the best. I can play well on hardcourt too though :)

Final question, are ready to get onto the court here in Dubai?

Yeah, I'm really excited to play here in Dubai and to get to meet up with the top players! It will be a good test to see where I am right now as a tennis player and of course I hope to do well! :D

Alright, good luck Michaella and hopefully we'll speak again soon! :)

Thank you! Bye! :)

Manager Wrap up - Day 1

The day started off with a confident interview with Michaella Krajicek
http://i40.tinypic.com/t99oiw.jpg
Krajicek is the 6th seed here, she had a BYE in R1 and face Bartoli in R2.

"Yeah, I'm really excited to play here in Dubai"
Krajicek quoted, the young gun heads into her R2 match with heaps of confident from previous tournaments.

The day then really got going as some double bagels were handed out.
http://pastortimfowler.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/bagels.jpg
They were given by Alize Cornet, Julia Goerges, Li Na and Daniela Hantuchova, with confident wins going into R2, they will meet tough opponents though. The seeded players have atleast reached a final here on the tour already and are also hoping to do well here.

Samantha Stosur looked in charge of her match when she creeped up 61 52, the nerves then got the hold of her in that match and she lost the second in a tiebreak. She then suddenly realised her opponent was not trying, and took advantage of that forcing another bagel.

http://i40.tinypic.com/20roh3k.jpg

Both players were not so please after the match aswell
http://images.theage.com.au/2011/02/06/2170145/svSTOSUR-420x0.jpg

On court we saw a new player, infact 2, with the debuts of Heather Watson and Christina McHale.
Watson got over the Swede, Allgurin in fine form 0 and 4.

She said "Hopefully I will get my hands on that trophy"

Waaiit... hold on Watson, you have just started playing on the tour and your thinking of getting your hands up onto that precious trophy? Hopefully she proves me wrong.

A feature match was between the 2 germans, Kerber and Petkovic. Kerber obviously the favorite coming into the match after her run in Cairo and continued her fine form dispatching her compatriot 16 61 63.

http://i.ytimg.com/vi/KNsoUT8ykY4/0.jpg

^ I don't see that friendship staying alive though.

the match between Bartoli and Daniilidou was a tight one, but a HORRIBLE one. Both players didn't look like they wanted to try. At the end I think her coach said "I'll give you some cake if you win the match"

Marion got her reward
