Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Well, actually not a bad draw as Vinci is not in great shape at all this year and ALF beat her in Melbourne already but I do think that ALF is just not ready yet after her injury, she usually needs some more matches to get back into a normal rhythm and I expect her to hit tons of UEs and then Vinci´s gamestyle will be a nightmare.
But who knows, maybe she can surprise me and somehow play on a decent level again, then she will have her chances against Vinci and also against Barthel/McHale in 2nd round.

Depends on ALF if she wins or loses that since Vincis form is pretty poor. Actually quite a good chance to go deeper in a slam.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

lost 06 26!
I hoped for a closer scoreline but no chance here after her injury break, ALF is a sensitive player and she just needs some more matches to get her rhythm again, that´s nothing new, we can only hope that she will stay healthy for most of the time in future and that it doesn´t need too much time now fo her to get back into "normal" shape.
Start of 2nd set was a bit better but then again she lost 4 games in a row, no chance on return also, tough to imagine that she is able to win a match in NY also but we´ll see, as I said, similar situation as in 2015 but there she had a strong end of the season, hopefully it will be similar now also.

New Haven

(3)Friedsam v Tsurenko
Buyukakcay v (wc)Kenin
Chirico v Davis
Cirstea v (12)Zheng

Good to see that ALF is back, important for her to get some matches before NY, I hope that she is at 100% again!
Draw is ok but I don't expect much here obviously as ALF did not play since Wimbledon but maybe she can play on a decent level here, good luck!!

New CHR of 45 this week btw, that´s great, she will have to defend many points later this year but she slowly is getting more consistent, now she only has to stay healthy throughout a whole season for a change...

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

and OUT of Cincinnati now also...really unlucky with injuries, that´s just as bad again as last summer

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

She never entered Montreal or Florianapolis/Nanchang, so she wanted to take some longer break anyway but obviously unlucky that she also can´t play Bastad now.
She often has problems with her shoulder, so hopefully it won´t get worse.
I guess she plans to play Cinci Q and then New Haven Q before the US Open, not the ideal preparation for her but she is used to such situations unfortunately, good thing is that she will have to play Q in this case, so she can hope for some "easier" opponents, it´s obviously important to get as many matches as possible once she is fit again.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Really unnecessary loss to Doi, Anna-Lena

A bad performance. Too passive, wasting BPs and stupid UEs

It was such a winnable match, but Anna-Lena wasted her chances and made many UEs

Anna-Lena lacks consistency. Too many bad play in matches or whole bad matches

Break Points Won: only 1 of 8 !

UEs: Anna-Lena 26, Doi 15

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

lost 67(1) 36
well, not much to add to what have been said already, a good tournament for ALF but she is wasting too many chances in general, mentally weak on the big points, a known problem and it gets worse in important matches and you just have to take your chances in matches like today against Doi.
Her season is much better than 2014/2015, more consistent but still room to improve, especially mentally but also movement/fitness, hope she can take the positive out of the matches on grass and that defeat today won´t influence her in a negative way but we´ll see how her season continues.
Late summer/fall is usually the best part of the season for her, so we can hope, 1st serve was really effective on grass and it should be effective on hard court soon also but it´s tough to predict anything when it comes to ALF...her head is often her biggest problem unfortunately!

Into the third round here for the first time

To get to the R16, she'll need to overcome Misaki, who she's 0-2 against. This is their first meeting on grass.

Gluck to ALF!

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam


Good and important that she was able to take that great chance here and reach 3rd round!
Lost her first service game but after that no further breaks for Alexandrova till 64 53, then she got broken but seems like the Russian played a good return game there as well, but ALF should have taken one of the 5 Mps afterwards, wasted many of those with UE according to the scoreboard but important that she did not lose the focus completely, easy TB in the end!

Doi next, not Pliskova, a dangerous player on grass, Doi can play great tennis but is not really consistent but once she got into a good rhythm it is tough to stop her, IMO ALF is the underdog in that match but it´s still a close match obviously, hope the result will be closer than in the San Antonio final, we´ll see, good luck!

ALF makes it to the 3rd round

Easy win over Diyas in Wimbledon R1. Well done, Anna-Lena !

Alexandrova - who upset Ivanovic - is beatable too. Viel Glück, Anna-Lena !
