Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

I just wondered whether Stefi was intending to defend her $50k (now $60k) ITF title next week, but she withdrew after the R1 Nara win.

She did say this year there will be less playing and more training, focusing on core fitness, endurance and strength, so we won't be seeing her play all the time like the last couple of years.

Next tournament is St Petersburg qualies, which is only about a week away anyway, of course.

Anyway, a very, very good week for Our Stefi, 4 wins on the trot, the reward of a Rod Laver Arena centre court grand slam apperarance that she'll remember for the rest of her life and can bore her grandchildren about, and I'm sure she's won some new fans.

Went down 6-3 6-2.

Just too strong an opponent.

Proud of you, Stefi. Carry this form into the rest of the season, and you will win a tournament.

Can't work. Stefi's on the telly, on centre court with the eyes of the world on her.

Venus just too good for her of course, but Stefi just broke her and is showing the world what she can do.

Stefi's thinking out there, and doing her best.

Back of her left leg taped - hamstring twinge?

Naturally, I'm recording the match, of course.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Now, speaking of our facebook page, a few shots from yesterday's R1 win over Nara:

Don't you love to see Stefi right on the front foot, taking the ball on the rise?


Shotmaking is crisp, and finding their range:


Am I allowed to say Stefi looks gorgeous in this tennis dress?




A few more action shots to be found there.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

I just read on our facebook page that Stefi will be on Rod Laver Arena - that's centre court with the **huge** stadium, first up at 11:00am for her match against the Big V.

Could Stefi possibly be under any more pressure?

I can't be there tomorrow; I have carer's duties at that time so can't even follows the scores.

But I will have fingers, toes, arms, legs, crossed for her - this is just an amazing thing for her.

This is what happens in tennis though, when you play well and string a few wins together, people will want to come and watch you.

Enjoy your moment, Stefi! You thoroughly deserve it.

Thanks. The world and Stef weren't probably ready for so much passion they showed in 'WTA Qualies'.

@Grininel , since you missed one of the most emotion-charged wins of Stef's career, here's the video of the third set:




Enjoy.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

I just checked back in the records, apart from the 50K last year, the last time Stefi strung together 4 wins on the trot was Linz 2015.

She really is in good touch.
