Career overview

Junior
Mai Grage has played almost exclusively on the Junior circuit - reaching a career high ranking of #30 earlier in 2010. She has played at all 4 grand slams as a junior, and reached the SF at Roland Garros in doubles this year (with Saisai Zheng). Mai has also won a couple of Junior tournaments incl. the Grade 1 tournament Mediterranee Avenir in 2009 defeating the very talented Monica Puig in the Final.

ITF - WTA
Mai has never played in the main draw of any ITF or WTA tournaments (10K Chiswick today will be her first ever!) but she has tried to qualify a couple of times, for instance at 100K Danish Open in 2008, and at 220K Slovenia Open 2010 where she won in the 1st round of qualification defeating Olga Savchuk (UKR).

FED Cup
Mai played two Fed Cup singles matches for Denmark in 2009 (16 years of age at the time), and four singles matches in 2010 - winning her matches vs. Israel and Latvia.

Ambitions
Mai Grage has been part of a special development program at the 'Center of Elite' supported by the Danish Tennis Federation and Team Danmark. Mai Grage has been the best Danish tennis player her age (b. 1992) for some time now and aims at being #10 in the world.

Mai Grage's schedule:

26-01 JUL/AUG: 10K Chiswick
02-08 AUG: 220K Danish Open (Q-wc)
15-21 AUG: Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (Juniors)

For some reason unknown to me (maybe because of a tough schedule with travels to South East Asia?) Mai Grage won't play at the Danish Outdoors Championships 09-14 AUG. Neiher does Barbat or Ejdesgaard, so it'll probably be a cakewalk for Hanne Skak...

Congrats Mai! :)


She's too good for 10K's we'll see at Danish Open what she can do with a good draw.

Malou videre, Mai ude. (Fra Tennisporten.dk)

I $10.000 ITF-turneringen i Chriswick, England, har både Malou Ejdesgaard, KB og Mai Grage, Lyngby, været i kamp.

Bedst gik det for Malou der vandt, 60 46 63 over Yasmin Clarke, England, uden rangering. Malou viser igen, at hun er stærk i de tætte kampe og vinder endnu engang i tre sæt.

Mai tabte 16 16 mod Tara Moore, England, WTA 602 og seedet nummer 8.

Det skal blive interessant at se i kvartfinalen om Malou kan tage revanche for Mais nederlag?

Der er ikke noget der er så skidt det ikke er godt for noget, Farum Qualies er mere værd at være klar til!

Good Luck Mai in Farum! :)

Re: Mai Grage
 
I just got my TV Guide for next week, TV 2 Sport will also show tennis for Farum, so hopefully Mai can also reach the MD (Even unlikely...) But Malou's match(es) should be shown on TV2 or TV2 Sport. :)

TV2 20:00 - 22.00 LIVE + Highlights 22:35 - 23:00

TV 2 Sport 11:00 - 16:00 LIVE + 23:00 - 02:00 Delayed replays (From Tuesday and first days, likely untill Friday)

Sure! I'm not sure if tennissporten.dk approves of the use of their images? If it's a problem I'll find another one.

She lost 9 of the last 10 games! I'd like to hear her what she has to say about the match...
