Anett and Ipek put in a nice performance in doubles, only losing 6-4 6-4, a very nice result against the top seed. I hope she and Ipek are now friends
Anett is first on court 3, so I will miss the beginning
It sucks they don't stream juniors
BTW, the winner of Anett/Annika I think should win the tournament
Beck should be beatable. In Copenhagen Anett took a set off her. Then again she got bagelled by her as well, but also she had a long and tough match on the previous day. It will be tough, that's sure, but not impossible.
Also Anett is better on clay then on Indoor Hard, and Beck is the opposite
And Anett really should have won vs Annika in Copenhagen
Anett for the title
She would go up to Number 2 in the rankings I think
Everyone is so close together
IMO, the winner of Anett and Annika will win the tournament
luckily Anett got her math doe quickly so she gets a headstart along with her claycourt advantage and her talent at gaining revenge in the important matches. I think Anett has a chant to do very well t Wimbledon due o her grey return, serve and clean powerful groundstrokes
I was looking at the rankings, she'll add 40 points with the SF. Does it take her back to the top 10?
I think she'd just miss out and be 11th. But let's hope this won't be the case and she'll get some more points.
I'm getting nervous already about today's match, at first I had no expectations after those sloppy first rounds, but now it seems this could really be her big chance. As she herself said, her game has been getting better every match and she feels really good.
As I said, if I don't believe in Anett, then she can't win.
I still feel bad for assuming she'd lose in Fed Cup and she won
But I thought she could work her way into the tournament and she has
The winner would be the favourite for the final
Anett lost 6-3 6-3
Annika is a good player though
I think she could have won if she didn't have those double fault problems (5 of Annika's 6 breaks came on Anett double faults) and if she started playing better earlier but this is still a great result
I hope she can play better at Wimbledon as it is a weaker tournament and her game could be very effective on grass and I liked how she played vs Garcia last year 3rd round
