Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

You've said it all here.

Definitely ALF should take her chances if Zarina is still injured or out of form.

Second round points to defend. Gluck!

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Diyas reached 4th round at Wimbledon two times in a row, so not an easy draw on grass but ALF still should have good chances to win this, she has the better serve and the weapons to keep the rallies short, in longer rallies Diyas will have the advantage for sure.
Anyway, Diyas was injured and couldn´t play any tournaments on grass before, so definitely an advatnage for ALF, good luck!

2nd round would be probably vs Ivanovic, who was not impressive lately at all, so should be a close match at least there as well, if she gets there.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Nonetheless it was a good week for ALF.
If she can further work on her concentration problems she'll surely improve her ranking.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

lost 46 67(4) to Mladenovic

Good chances wasted in 1st set, in which she was ahead 4-2 but too many UEs then, her known problem, she just loses concentration too often in her matches but well, she won two close matches here before, in which she showed that she can win important points and TBs as well, hopefully she will be able to improve further.
2nd set she was 0-2 and BP down already, so food fight there at least but Mladenovic´s serve was much better then in 2nd set, so no real chance there in the end.
Would have been some important points for ALF, now she will stay around ~ 60 in the rankings but she will surely be satisfied still with the matches here in general.

To see the positive about the defeat today, she will have some more rest before Wimbledon now and she still had a good preparation on grass, those matches in Mallorca and here surely helped her, now she hopefully will be able to perform well at Wimbledon also, serve will be important and hopefully she gets a good draw as well.

Great win

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Another great win and impressive result to win 2 matches in 1 day (with very short time between) against Kontaveit and Safarova on grass (1st match lasted 2 hours and 2nd match lasted 1,5 hours). This is a Premier and for this win over Safarova only 25 points and a place in the AF.
Good to play 3 tournaments on grass before Wimbledon with this great serve, and with going into the MD in Eastbourne very late, you see again, how important the ranking position is.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Amazing win against Safarova, Anna-Lena !

She is so talented. I see more potential in her than in Beck and Witthöft

Eastbourne R3 vs on fire Mladenovic. Anna-Lena is the underdog. Nothing to lose

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Another good win, even better than the one against Kontaveit obviously!
and today she really was able to make the big points for a change, 1st set Safarova barely lost a point on serve while ALF had much bigger problems to hold serve but in the end it was ALF who won the TB, in 2nd set she got broken for the first time today, even twice but great comeback in the end from 2-4 down to 6-4, don´t know what happened but Safarova´s serve stats went from very impressive to really bad in the 2nd set.

Mladenovic next, who is pretty up and down usually, good serve also, we´ll see how it goes, ALF could be pretty tired now, hope she still has some energy left, she might have bad luck with the draw at Wimbledon, so a deep run here in Eastbourne would be nice but she already achieved more than I expected anyway!

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Really strong tournament for ALF!!
She beats Safarova 7-6 6-4 after being down 0-2 and 2-4 in the 2nd.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Good to see that her serve really only was that bad in her first match on grass, afterwards she really improved again there and today the stats really look impressive again.
7 aces, 1 DFs, 16/16 service games won, had to save only one BP during the whole match and she made the big points today for a change also, good for her confidence that she was able to win such a close match.

Return stats weren´t that great today but it´s tough to say as Kontaveit can serve pretty well also but ALF only won 3 out of 11 points over 2nd serve of Kontaveit in 1st set and those 3 points were all DFs but good that she was able to improve there a bit as well in 2nd and 3rd set.

No pressure against Safarova, ALF will be too tired probably to keep it close but we´ll see!

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

This is a good win for Anna-Lena, lost no service game, only 1 break point for Kontaveit, who is strong on own serve too.
Anna-Lena has 80% winning on 1st serve against Kontaveit in a long match, against Bogdan she had 82% and against Garcia 83% winning on 1st serve
which is very very good.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam

Strong win. Held her nerves which she failed to do in the past.
1st serve deffo put her out of trouble here.
Good Luck against Lucie.
