Sofya Zhuk (RUS) d. (5)Emilie Francati (DEN) 64 61
At least she reached the QF, which she was supposed to according to her seeding. Good week!
She's playing another G2 in Austria next week, but unfortunately Emilie has withdrawn from the Grade A Trofeo Bonfiglio in Italy the week after that.
35 Internationale Spring Bowl 2014 Amstetten, AUT, G2
(wc)Lena Reichel (AUT) d. Emilie Francati (DEN) 46 60 64
I'm pretty sure French Open won't happen for Emilie. I was very confident some months ago because she was able to get in the AO main draw with an even lower ranking. But French Open is much harder, of course, because there are so many players in Europe. And last year's RG cut-off was skewed because the last girl into qualifying got in because of her pro ranking, and not because of her junior ranking! Good week in Austria though. And Emilie will climb a few spots in the rankings.
You think she could enter doubles at Roland Garros?
I hope so, but I really don't know. Wimbledon will probably be tough too, although the points she earned this week in Austria may help.
Btw, Julie Noe was on the Trofeo Bonfiglio (Grade A) entry list next week, but she doesn't appear on the published q-draw. So she seems to have skipped the tournament. I guess I could have figured as much since she was playing at KB yesterday - at the same time when the sign-in was supposed to happen in Italy!
Each tie consisted of four singles matches and two doubles matches.
Denmark lost to Finland 2-4 (Rebekka Hillings° & Sofia Samavati won their singles)
Denmark lost to Sweden 2-4 (Rebekka Hillings° & Sofia Samavati won their singles)
Denmark d. Norway 5-1 (Denmark won both doubles plus Rebekka Hillings°, Sofia Samavati & Hannah V. M°ller in singles)
Rebekka and Sofia did very well as both won all their singles matches! Hannah won one of her two singles matches. Denmark came third of the four Nordic countries but would have fared much better if their doubles results were better: In total, Denmark won 7 singles matches and 2 doubles matches, Finland won 7 singles and 5 doubles, while Sweden won 8 singles and 5 doubles.
Emilie Francati has withdrawn from Odense. Julie Noe withdrew too but there are still some Danish girls in the draw. But Emilie is going to play Roehampton (Julie Noe is on the acceptance list too but outside the cut-off):
Unfortunately it doesnt look like Emilie's going to make the Wimbledon cut-off. She's ALT #14 at the moment. There are 6 British girls ahead of her in the Q and ALT lists. If those British girls all get MD and Q wildcards, then Emilie will move up to ALT #8 (in a best case scenario). A few further withdrawals will bring her very close to the Q-draw, but she'll probably end just oudside the cut-off
