Not surprising though.. Sabine seems to be in very good form while Timea hasn't played for very very long time..
I hoped atleast she'd give more fight so she'd be tierd for tomorrow's match against Patty..
I wonder if they'll let her play the singles tomorrow or Vogele will play.
Anyway, if Patty wins it'll go to a decisive rubber, if she loses, Germany wins

Timea lost to Monica Niculescu 64 63 in Paris R1. :hug:

She just needs more time, but playing smaller events would definitely help.

Hello, Im new here! Im a big fan of Timea Bacsinszky!:angel::) Shes going through difficult times at the moment! I heard the real reason for withdrawing/playing bad is that she broke up with her boyfriend and not the knee injury!?:confused::sad: I remember watching Timea play my fave Anastasia Myskina in Zürich! Good luck in 2009, Timea!!!:D

I read it in an article of Swiss FedCup Site and heard it from Eurosport commentator during AO.
So it could be true.

Malek is in a great shape of course, she rushed over Kerber in straight sets, so it's no shame losing to her

She won't play. :(

May 16th, 2009, 07:45 PM
yes i saw it, does anybody know why she withdraw??
she should really play more often, this way, she will lose extremely many ranking positions!

May 17th, 2009, 02:23 PM
Timea injured her leg three weeks ago during her training, it's why she doesn't play the clay court season...

May 17th, 2009, 02:24 PM
Awful year so far :sad: :(

May 17th, 2009, 05:49 PM
Timea :sad: :hug:

May 17th, 2009, 06:37 PM
so she'll leave out RG as well?

May 17th, 2009, 07:59 PM
I don`t know if Timea will play French Open.:shrug:

Really bad 2009 season for Timea, very unlucky.:sad:

Singles career high was #48 (October 2008).
Now Timea is #97!:help:
In 2009 so far only 1 WTA main draw win (Indian Wells)!:eek::sad:

Many points to defend soon.
Timea must play tournaments and win matches quickly, most important are Grand Slam wins.

If nothing improves, Timea will have to start from nowhere again!:sad:
I don`t like it, I don`t like it at all.:(

Finally playing, finally a win.. now look for next round! :D

ES has showed the mp, it was pretty good point, and Timea's reaction was so sweet :hearts: :D

May 24th, 2009, 11:54 AM
I only saw the first set. In the beginning she was making too many faults. But after that it was really going better. She had already her chances to win the first set.. So i'm really happy she could do it in 3 sets :woohoo:

Congrats Timea :yeah:

May 24th, 2009, 03:30 PM
very important win, probably the most important one so far this year, it will prevent her from losing too many points and hopefully bring her into Wimbledon MD
Hopp Timea
Give your best against Li Na!!!

May 24th, 2009, 06:37 PM
Good fight, Timea!:hearts::yeah:
Came back from 4-6 2-4 to win 4-6 6-4 6-1 !:eek::worship:

Time to show your big talent here and upset Na Li!
Good luck, Timea!:D;)

Here an article about Timeas win::p

French Open
Bacsinszky steht in Runde zwei

Timea Bacsinszky hat die erste Runde der French Open erfolgreich überstanden. Die Lausannerin setzte sich gegen die Französin Emilie Loit in 114 Minuten mit 4:6, 6:4 und 6:1 durch.

Timea Bacsinszky (WTA 127) hat beim French Open eines ihrer zuletzt so raren Erfolgserlebnisse gefeiert. Die Lausannerin ist durch einen 4:6, 6:4, 6:1-Erfolg gegen Emilie Loit (WTA 117) in die 2. Runde eingezogen.

«Wie ein Grand-Slam-Titel».

Timea Bacsinszky jubelte nach dem verwerteten Matchball so, als ob sie ein Turnier gewonnen hätte. Die ganze Anspannung löste sich und machte purer Freude Platz, Freude über den erst dritten Matchgewinn des Jahres. «Ich bin enorm zufrieden, dieser Sieg bedeutet mir so viel wie ein Grand-Slam-Titel. Normalerweise wäre dies ein Routinematch gewesen, aber diesmal waren die Umstände doch sehr speziell», so Bacsinszky nach ihrem ersten Auftritt auf der WTA-Tour seit dem 13. April.

Sie hatte den Sieg bei brütender Hitze auf Showcourt 2 erdauern müssen. Die fast 20-Jährige lag gegen die routinierte Linkshänderin 4:6, 2:4 zurück, vor allem auch, weil sie in der Schlussphase des ersten und zu Beginn des zweiten Satzes eine enorme Schwächephase hatte (20 von 23 Punkten verloren). Dann gelang ihr aber, basierend auf einer starken Rückhand, die Wende mit dem Gewinn von 10 der letzten 11 Games, wobei ihre 29-jährige Gegnerin physisch auch enorm abbaute.

Belastungstest bestanden

Dass Bacsinszky körperlich durchhielt, war nicht selbstverständlich, hatte sie doch nach ihrer Wadenverletzung das Training erst vor einer Woche wieder aufgenommen. «Ich habe sicher seit fünf Wochen nicht mehr so lange Tennis gespielt wie heute», so die Lausannerin.

Na Li als Prüfstein

Nächste Gegnerin der nur noch drittbesten Schweizerin --Stefanie Vögele (WTA 104) liegt im neusten Ranking vor ihr -- ist Na Li (China/25), gegen die sie bisher noch nie gespielt hat und von der sie auch nicht viel weiss.

Timea: "I`m very happy. This win means to me as much as a Grand Slam title.:eek::lol: The circumstances were very special/difficult."
Because of a calf injury Timea only began training one week ago. She said that she didn`t play as long as this match today took since 5 weeks!
(It is written that Timea dominated with her strong backhand in 2nd and 3rd set.;))

May 27th, 2009, 06:07 AM
Timea :D Good luck today :)

May 27th, 2009, 11:24 AM

Bacsinszky in Marseille :D Miss Dropshot. She is such a cool and down to earth player. I hope she will continue to improve, she knows what to do at the net but unfortunately she lacks the power to join top players IMO
















With Bovina in doubles

Yesss, Timea showed who is the more talented Swiss player!:bounce:
Easy win.:angel:

Good luck in Quarterfinal, Timea!;)

Jul 17th, 2009, 05:01 PM
Timea won the first set 6-4! :eek: :D

(she was up 3-0 though :o )

Jul 17th, 2009, 05:50 PM
Timea Won 6-4 6-4


Jul 17th, 2009, 05:50 PM
Timea won 6-4 6-4 :worship: :worship:

Great to see her doing so well :)

Might miss Gastein qualies now.

Jul 18th, 2009, 12:24 AM
Timea :bowdown:

I think she will still be able to play two matches Sunday should she lose tomorrow to Schiavone. I hope she won't tank or not give her best in thinking that she will play Bad Gastein because making the final here or even winning would be much better than going to Austria.

Jul 18th, 2009, 08:44 AM
Timea :) I'm sooo happy to see she is totally back. Good luck girl!

Jul 18th, 2009, 10:16 AM
Great, Timea into WTA Prague semifinal!:yeah:
As a qualifier!
And without losing a set!

Good luck vs Schiavone, Timea!;)

Jul 18th, 2009, 06:10 PM
Prague SF is postponed till tomorrow, so she definitely will miss Gastein. But no big loss.

Jul 19th, 2009, 10:40 AM
Schiavone d. Bacsinszky 62 46 75

So close :sad:

Jul 19th, 2009, 05:39 PM
Indeed so close :sad: But what a great tournament for her. She can be proud :)

Jul 20th, 2009, 08:02 AM
unfortunately, due to this delay she cannot play Bad Gastein :(

Jul 26th, 2009, 12:24 PM
In her first round in Istanbul she has to play against Polona Hercog. Not an easy draw, and if she win this she has maybe to play against Zvonareva.

Jul 26th, 2009, 12:47 PM
Bad draw.

Jul 26th, 2009, 08:51 PM
Tough draw for both Vögele & Bacsinszky
But I think Timi could win!!
Hopp Timea!:D

Jul 27th, 2009, 02:24 PM
Timea beat Hercog 6-2 6-2

Another good win :yeah:

Jul 27th, 2009, 04:40 PM
Indeed, great win :yeah: :)

Jul 27th, 2009, 07:35 PM
Solid win, Timi is really playing brilliantly today, she didn't even face a single break point!!!
Next up is probably Zvonareva who is on her comeback, if she'll play then...
Hopp Timi, anyway, you can also destroy Vera:D

Jul 27th, 2009, 11:23 PM
Well done Timea, keep climbing back up the rankings. A good summer will be nice when R3 USO points fall off her ranking. We'll see what happens against Zvonareva. :)

Jul 28th, 2009, 09:27 AM
I'd really love to see Timea & Stefanie Vögele playing doubles together, they could become extremely successful!
Unfortunately one speaks French and the other one Swiss German :(

Jul 28th, 2009, 11:38 AM
Unfortunately one speaks French and the other one Swiss German :(

Why is it a problem?

Jul 28th, 2009, 01:47 PM
Why is it a problem?

Timea always plays with French girls and so does Steffi, she usually plays with girls from Austria or Germany. But they should really think about that.

Jul 28th, 2009, 05:28 PM
Timi faces Koryttseva in R2 who dismissed Vera Zvonareva, who still seems to be a bit injured :D

Jul 28th, 2009, 08:38 PM
Strong 1st round match in WTA Istanbul, Timea!:cool::D
Now vs Koryttseva.
Vera Zvonareva is still not completely healthy.:sad:

Take this opportunity, Timea!
Good luck in round 2!;)

Nice, Timea into Quarterfinal!:D
Now vs Ula Radwanska. Interesting match imo.

Good luck in Quarterfinal, Timea!;)

Jul 30th, 2009, 08:17 PM
Timea should be able to win this one...

Jul 31st, 2009, 10:13 AM
Timea won 6-0 6-1

Timea really gain lots of confidence these past weeks,
which is great to see considering the first few months were quite difficult for her!
Now let's hope she keeps going:)

Aug 14th, 2009, 04:17 PM


LAUSANNE, Switzerland - Coming from a small country that has produced all-time greats in Roger Federer and Martina Hingis, a young tennis player might be forgiven for hiding under a snow-capped rock. But not 20-year-old Timea Bacsinszky.

After reaching her first two Sony Ericsson WTA Tour semifinals, Bacsinszky cracked the Top 50 in 2008, shortly after going within two points of shocking Dinara Safina in the third round at the US Open. But injuries hurt her progress in the first half of 2009, and the ranking plummeted outside the Top 100. However, fit again and armed with a new attitude, the feisty right-hander bounced back in fine style last month, as a qualifier reaching the quarters at Budapest and semis at Prague, and a further semifinal at Istanbul to lift her ranking more than 40 places in the space of four weeks.

Back on track and in the Top 70 again, Timea spoke with Sonyericssonwtatour.com during a week at home in Switzerland.

Tell us about your family.
TB: My brother Daniel teaches music and is also a singer with the Lausanne opera, a tenor. He's 27. Unfortunately I haven't seen him perform yet because I've always been away at the time. My sister Sophie is 25 and having finished university she now works in social welfare, for an organization called Pro Infirmis, which works with people who have disabled children. My elder sister Melinda was born in 1974. She lives just over the border in France and has two girls, Emilie, who will be six in December, and Audrey, who just turned four.

Actually Melinda, Daniel and Sophie are my half brothers and sisters - I am the only child from my parents' marriage - but we are very close. My parents came to Switzerland from Hungary but they are divorced now. Mom's a dentist and my dad's a tennis coach.

You speak five languages - which comes first?
TB: I spoke Hungarian as a child until I was about four and it came time to go to school. I can still remember the other kids laughing at me! So then I learnt French and as well as English I also speak German and Italian.

And are you a good aunt?
TB: I think so, they seem to like me! They are so proud I'm playing tennis and when they see me on TV they tell anyone who will listen. Last year at Antwerp I won the first set in my semifinal and they were so excited, they were saying "she cannot lose, she's a champion!" My sister had to try and explain to them who I was playing - it was Justine Henin, and she came back to beat me in three sets.

What is your coaching situation?
TB: I started playing when I was three and my dad was my coach in the early days. But it got to a point where we could not be a family like that. When I was about 15 my father wanted me to have another coach but I wanted him, so I stopped for a while. That was the summer that my parents separated, so it made it easier for me to make the decision.

That's when I started with my current coach, Erfan Djahangiri. Actually he was my hitting partner before that. He was born in Iran but came to Switzerland when he was six months old and grew up here; he's known my dad for a long time. I've also worked with Heinz Günthardt (1985 Wimbledon doubles champion and long-time coach of Steffi Graf).

You had a great month in July, getting to the latter stages of three events in a row and improving your ranking considerably. What clicked?
TB: I think I'm maturing; I've learnt some things, not just in tennis but also in life. Talking with my coach and people around me, it made me realize that if I give a bit more to my tennis I can get a lot more out of it. I think before I was a bit too focused on having fun off court, and not fighting hard enough on it. By refocusing and reminding myself that this is what I want to do, it has made me more relaxed, and in a funny way I've being playing with less pressure.

You've had some injury problems as well.
TB: Yes, that's the other thing… I feel really fresh. I had a knee injury which stopped me going to Australia and then after Barcelona in April I pulled a calf muscle. I missed six weeks because of that and only started practising the week before Roland Garros.

What do you consider your strengths as a player?
TB: In the last few weeks I've realized that I'm a big fighter and never give up. Also my serve has improved a lot, which is helping.

What do you need to improve?
TB: I want to work on my physical conditioning, which should help me to avoid injuries. At the end of this season we're going to make some changes to the way I train; it's hard to change too much mid season with so many tournaments, but for sure at the end of the year we'll sit down and look at new things.

Although you've improved you ranking, it came too late to gain direct entry to most of the US Open lead-ins. Is that disappointing, and where to next?
TB: It is a bit disappointing, but that said, playing the qualies at Budapest and Prague and then doing well in the main draw has given me a lot of match practice and a lot of confidence, so maybe it's been for the best. I'm playing the ITF event in the Bronx and after that the US Open.

If you could steal a shot from another player, what would it be?
TB: Everything from Justine Henin - the whole package! And as a Swiss player, Roger Federer is an inspiration for all of us.

Who haven't you played on Tour, but would like to most?
TB: I played Venus at the Beijing Olympics and I would love to play Serena. For me, she's the best player in the world. They are the best two players in the world.

If you had a chance to play one of the retired greats, who would it be?
TB: Can I choose two? Martina Hingis or Monica Seles. Martina because in Switzerland she was an idol for everyone. I met her a couple of years ago and it was a big thrill. And Monica because of her Hungarian roots - and I just really liked her game.

What do you enjoy most about being on the Tour?
TB: The sensation of playing in front of 25,000 people, like at the US Open, is an unbelievable feeling. It's something that maybe only sportspeople can understand. It just feels like you have wings, it's amazing. There's also the look on the kids' faces at my club or tournaments, who want to play like me, and when they come up to me for an autograph they're trembling... it's so cute.

Any downsides?
TB: I enjoy travel but it's mostly to play; we don't get much time to visit and enjoy the places we go to. Of course I miss my family and friends when I am away - if I could bring everyone with me to a tournament it would be really cool… I might do that one day.

Do you have a favorite tournament?
TB: I loved the tournament at Zürich. I won through the qualies there in 2006 and beat Anastasia Myskina which was my first Top 20 win. I also reached my first Tour quarterfinal that week, so although I lost to Maria Sharapova it was very memorable. Unfortunately the event doesn't exist any more… I hope it comes back! I also love Roland Garros and playing in Budapest, where I can see my relatives and speak Hungarian, which I miss.

Who are you best friends on Tour?
Alizé Cornet and Agnes Szavay are good friends. And in Istanbul I got to know Polona Hercog. We talked and laughed a lot, it was fun.

You come from a very musical family - do you play an instrument yourself?
TB: No way! But I love to sing. My music teacher always told me I had something in my voice, a good ear and good pitch… maybe it's because of my Hungarian blood.

If not tennis…
TB: I would be doing something in sports for sure - perhaps teaching. I really love snowboarding so maybe something to do with that. Otherwise, something with a restaurant.

Aug 24th, 2009, 10:23 AM
good luck Timea!!

Aug 24th, 2009, 04:39 PM
hope she goes far in Bronx! Allez Timea:D
is she losing her 2008 US OPEN R3 points next monday?

Aug 24th, 2009, 11:58 PM
I am interviewing Timea tomorrow! What questions should I ask her??? Post them here or PM them to me, and I'll do my best to ask.

Aug 25th, 2009, 01:19 AM
I only have a couple ideas:

What are her goals for the remainder of the season?
Has the success of other Swiss players (Federer, Hingis, Schnyder) inspired her to do better?
How does she explain her sudden burst of form that saw her reach two WTA semifinals?

Aug 25th, 2009, 07:22 AM
Can Timi still play US Open Qualies although she plays Bronx???
At least she won r1 6-4, 6-3 against camerin!!!

Aug 25th, 2009, 07:52 AM

Can Timi still play US Open Qualies although she plays Bronx???

Doesn't need qualies!

She looked GOOD yesterday. Both played well, but she really dictated against Camerin the whole time.

Aug 25th, 2009, 10:54 PM
Even though I had set up a time with her yesterday, I didn't get to talk to Timea.

Timea practiced for like over two hours, and i kept going over to check that she was still practicing and she was ALWAYS still practicing. But then I didn't check for like six minutes, and she was gone! Not only that, she left the whole tournament site immediately, so I didn't get to talk to her. And I had all sorts of questions planned out, plus all of yours :sad:.

Sorry all.

BUT, I do have a ton of pictures and video of Timea, and I'll link to that when it goes up :).

Aug 26th, 2009, 08:35 AM
great news, thx!!

Vania King vs. Anastasia Yakimova
Timea Bacsinszky vs. Q
Meghann Shaughnessy vs. Daniela Hantuchova

Not a bad first round ;) Good luck!

Aug 27th, 2009, 05:18 PM
good draw, 3r is more than possible again. Cmon Timea!

Aug 30th, 2009, 04:44 PM
Timi will face Vesna Manasieva in R1 again:D what a joke, exactly the same opponent as at Wimbledon!

Aug 30th, 2009, 04:59 PM

Wasnt it like 8-6 in the third set? I suspect a 7-6 3rd set finish. ;)

Aug 30th, 2009, 05:11 PM
No, hopefully it will be MUCH easier on hard. :p

Aug 30th, 2009, 05:39 PM
GL Timi! yup i think she can atleast reach R3 like last year;)

Nice start :)

Sep 1st, 2009, 01:01 AM
Well done. :)

The next match against Hantuchova will be difficult but I think she really should win that one.

Sep 1st, 2009, 01:21 AM
Go Timea :inlove:. Hopefully it's on a TV court because I want to see if Timea has decided to stop pushing, I haven't seen her since the Mayr match. :help:

Sep 1st, 2009, 04:49 AM
Great win, you can nicely see how much she improved since Wimbledon:D
Hopp Timi!!!

Sep 1st, 2009, 10:02 AM
i really think she can beat Dani!
i like them both but i prefer Timi so i'll be routing for her:D

Sep 1st, 2009, 10:44 AM
Switzerland is leading in the country-scoreline-rankings after day one.
It was the only country with more than two matches, that won all of them!!!
Hopp Schwiiz!!

Had chance to go break up at the start of the set, but after she was clearly outplayed. But overall I was quite impressed by Timea :yeah:

Really impressed today
i was there and thought she has a great BH and serve

Sep 3rd, 2009, 07:18 AM
^Yea, not easy to read google translation, but I'll take the pics from there.:D

I'm a bit disappointed because I thought she could win this, but if you're saying that she played impressive, then well done Timea!:yeah:

Sep 3rd, 2009, 11:04 AM
Only problem I saw was that she moonballed EVERY forehand in the third set. I know she has problems with that side, but it's a bit sad that professional player loses all confidence in one side and reverts to only moonballing.

Sep 3rd, 2009, 11:20 AM
Maybe she and Alizé Cornet can win their r1 doubles match. Timi could get her doubles ranking back

Sep 3rd, 2009, 12:26 PM
Only problem I saw was that she moonballed EVERY forehand in the third set. I know she has problems with that side, but it's a bit sad that professional player loses all confidence in one side and reverts to only moonballing.

Yeah, the forehand was a mess. In the second and third sets her serve just went and the % went right down on the first serve and she just was trying to go blow for blow with Daniela on the backhand. She really needed to move the ball around because Daniela is only relly very good when she's just hitting balls from one place but Timea didn't do that.

But still, she played well for parts so hopefully she can continue to improve and work hard on the forehand, because that's the biggest problem. When it was on in set one, the serve looked huge today. :eek:

Sep 3rd, 2009, 04:05 PM
Timea :hug: :sad:

Sep 9th, 2009, 05:31 PM

Definitely should be. Less pressure, more points available. She should play the event with the most points that she can enter without having to play qualies.

And there isn't even much difference with the fields. :lol:

Sep 20th, 2009, 02:24 PM
I was impressed by Timea at US Open vs Hantuchova.:yeah:
Really great play, love her positive attitude, backhand was amazing and serve also nice.:D
Sets 2 and 3 were a lot closer than the score suggests and Hantuchova played very well.

Slutiana and HowardH, I agree. Timea should play WTA events.
Seems like she prefers to stay in Europe...
