Re: Allez Mandy Minella!
Unfortunately, Mandy does not have the same potential as Pironkova.
There are indeed very good players in the qualis, that would be favourites against her.
I would have preferred to see Mandy get a top player in the first round, and play on the centre court as she did in other Grand Slams before, than losing against a good qualifier on an outside court.
In the second round - probably against Pavlyuchenkova - it would be a small court as well. In the hypothetical third round she would then play Radwanska.
