Re: Elise Mertens

Thanks for the match review !

I've never seen a whole match from her, so it's interesting to read how her playstyle is.

Top 100 is still far away though, she had some points to defend from last year's ITF's so she won't even be top 150 if she doesn't at least reach the QF here...

But good win overall

Now let's hope she's not getting crushed by Babos...

Re: Elise Mertens

Elise won her first round match against Xinyun Han (WTA-152) in Taipei WTA125k, 6-2 6-4
I was able to watch the entire match..

Well, one good thing, Elise had a strong serve today Without those first serves it could have been a whole different story. She seemed very determined and screamed a lot of "Allez" and "Ja"
On an other hand, she was way too passive in my opinion and I believe this is her game, she is not powerful on the ground (while her serve is, even some 2nd) so when she tried to be more aggressive, it wasn't very effective.. I'm afraid that against any good ballbashers she would be crushed easily and against pushers, she couldn't hit through them But she can still progress and it was just one match She was helped a lot by Han who made a lot of UEs in the first set especially. However, Elise was defending very well and was able to put back some shots you wouldn't think she would even tho she didn't look that fast. Still, it was too short many times and she can be glad that it was only Han, who also seemed injured a bit.. I'm sad she's not coming to the net more often, with such doubles results, it is very surprising.. But with that kind of game it's quite understandable tho

Anyways, first WTA main draw win?! 15 points grabbed plus getting closer and closer from TOP100
Next is Babos

Re: Elise Mertens

Almost top 150!

New CHR of #151

She can make it, if she plays a good tournament this week

Re: Elise Mertens

The saddest thing about all of that is that it's written by a Belgian "journalist" in a Belgian newspaper

Belinda Elise & Ipek lost 6-7(6) 4-6 to Buyukakcay/Sakkari in the dubs final yesterday

Elise Mertens uitgeschakeld in halve finales dubbelspel in D... - Sportwereld

Wrong picture & wrong information...
They should fire that writer.

Re: Elise Mertens

Elise just qualified for the dubs final with Ipek Soylu (they're the top seeds), with a 2 & 3 win over 3rd seeds Melnikova/Pous-Tio in SF, though

Re: Elise Mertens

Elise played 75K Dubai this week, she was the 5th seed, beat (WC)Isabella Shinikova 2-6 6-3 6-3 in R1, and Katerina Vankova 3 & 0 in R2, but she lost 5-7 1-6 to (2)Klara Koukalova in QF today.

Meh. Kookie is very beatable these days... :-/

Elise lost 1&1 to Tatishvili at LUX qualifying rounds
Oct 18th, 2015 04:14 PM
Re: Elise Mertens

Wow, she lost 1 & 1 to (5)Anna Tatishvili today

Anna can be tricky for girls who are not powerful enough to constantly hit through her, but that scoreline is terrible...

Re: Elise Mertens

Elise is playing WTA Luxembourg qualies now, she just beat Anna Schaefer 2 & 1 in Q1
Oct 10th, 2015 07:37 PM
Re: Elise Mertens

Oh my mistake, the win I posted about was in QFs, not SFs! Elise & Maria lost to (4)Cepede Royg/Melnikova in SF yesterday, 4-6 5-7
Oct 9th, 2015 12:06 PM
Re: Elise Mertens

Well, Elise still qualified for the dubs final, with Maria Sanchez this time (), they're the 2nd seeds and beat Ormaechea/Segarelli 1 & 4 in SF yesterday

Final vs. Hsu/Min

Re: Elise Mertens

Elise lost 2 & 3 to 2nd seed LDL in R1 of 50K+H Tampico yesterday

Maybe she was tired, but I have a feeling she struggles a lot against complete pushers

Re: Elise Mertens

That's great for her!
I'm really surprised by this, didn't know she had it in her...
Glad that I had it wrong

She's so good as sure of a spot in the AO Q-list
