Being in America and not really being a morning person I had to watch the matches recorded.
I pretty much went as expected. They should probably have gone a bit further in doubles, but in singles I never really saw Mandy go past Annika. I know she had a good start to the match but as so often before she ran out of ideas.
And I don't think it's fair to knock Annika for a nosebleed.
What the hell is she gonna do after Donetsk and in August? Whats she gonna do for a US Open warmup..
It is only 3 weeks.
She couldn't really get in to Rogers and Cincy on her ranking. I guess signing up for New Haven wasn't on because of the risk of having to play US Open Q.
So she is probably going to do som practice (She surely needs it) and getting ready for US Open and the Asian stretch going in to Luxembourg. Remind you, she needs a lot of point in the fall to assure Australian Open participation.
