Mandy Minella lost 4:6 2:6 against Roberta Vinci and I'm satisfied that she won 6 games against a Top 50 player.
Now Mandy needs to be more consistent because she has shown us this week that she can beat players from Top 150 (but she often loses in QF of 25k
). She has even a slight chance to reach Australian Open quali which would be really nice.
I guess Mandy Minella will climb up the rankings like this: around 160 (end 2006), around 120 (end 2007) and breaking in Top 100 during 2008.
