Re: Marie Benoit

Nice pic
Congratulations Marie!

Altough she shouldn't have played Montenegro, lost badly in first round.

But next week she'll be top 300 for the first time!

Re: Marie Benoit

Marie won Alphen, the biggest title of her career so far and she beat quality player throughout the week: Uebelhoer, Brianti, Lemoine, Kerkhove and Lukas.
We knew she had it in her but this comes nearly out of nowhere after the last weeks, it seemed like she was struggling to find some form after her good showings in Sweden. But as we know it's all about her head and consistency when it comes to Marie. This must be a great confidence boost and it should help her in the upcoming weeks, though it's kinda sad that the clay season is nearly over. She is going to play in Montenegro now, let's hope she isn't too tired..
The goal should be to play GS-qualies next year, atleast the US Open with the bigger field in qualifications should be definitely within reach for her.

Here is a pic of her winner's speach, she looks so happy..

Herzlichen Glückwunsch Marie und viel Glück für die kommenden Aufgaben!

Re: Marie Benoit

She lost against Marcinkevica 26 46.

Seems like she's struggling a bit to win matches again...

Re: Marie Benoit

Thanks for the pic, Marie looks cute!

She beat Greet Minnen today in style, finally an easy win without any drama! Next up is Marcinkevica from Latvia who is beatable for sure, but Marie has to be focused!

Good luck, viel Glück!

Re: Marie Benoit

Marie was watching Klaartje's match in Westende and comforted her after her loss.

Seems like they are friends?!

Koksijde R16: (Q)Kelly Versteeg (NED) def. Marie Benoit 6-3 4-6 7-5

Another tough defeat, this is heartbreaking, I'm really sad right now..

I hope that Marie still can take the positives from this match and her season overall but these kind of losses doesn't help for sure.

Re: Marie Benoit

Beat Tanaka from Japan 6-3 6-1 today to secure a spot in the MD. She won 8 games in a row from 3-3 in the first set till 5-0 in the second set and played some really good tennis!
In the beginning till 3-3 she made way too many UE's and took too much risk in general against someone who is a consistent baseliner without any great weaknesses. Since Marie stopped being all over the place the result was NID. She made Tanaka run especially by hitting a lot of dropshots which the Japanese girl couldn't reach. Tanaka played some nice angles here and then but doesn't have the weapons to beat Marie if she is playing like today.
In the end Marie had some problems serving it out but I think that's quite normal in tennis..

Good luck in the MD!

Re: Marie Benoit

It's a good win anyway, winning against someone who you were 0-3 H2H down!

Re: Marie Benoit

Well, she found a way to win it..

It was somewhat of a rollercoaster and looked like she would lose it at the end of the second set when Kennel served for the match at 6-5 (30-15), but Marie was able to fight back to reach the TB, where she blew a 4-1/5-3/6-4-lead and nearly the match. The final set was straight forward. I'm really proud that she didn't choke the Tb away, Kennel is for sure better than her ranking suggests. I hope she can qualify now!
