Re: Mai Grage

From the official tournament site:

Quote:
Goodbye, Mai Grage

There are no more matches for Mai Grage in this year's e-Boks Sony Ericsson Open. Saturday night the young Dane lost in qualification to the Australian Johanna Konta 3-6 1-6.

"I am a little disappointed that the match didn't last longer - that I did not win more games, but it was a great experience and nice to play there, and I believe I hit the ball very well," said Mai Grage after the match.

It's just her second WTA tournament after her debut in qualifying for the Slovenia Open a few weeks ago. Back then Mai Grage won one match, but although the great result from Slovenia could not be repeated in Farum, Mai Grage did not leave the arena empty-handed.

"Every time I play these matches I learn so much, also gamewise - and I see, that I can play in such high pace," said Mai Grage, who hopes to return for next year's Danish WTA tournament.

Re: Mai Grage

Copenhagen doubles draw, 1st round:

Goerges/Groenefeld (1) vs. Klemenschits/Klepac
Kondratieva/Lefevre vs. Barbat/Grage


Maria Kondratieva (RUS) (28 years of age) is a doubles specialist - ranked #933 in singles but #54 in doubles. She was in the doubles final at 220K Istanbul a few days ago!

Sophie Lefevre (FRA) (29 years of age) is also a doubles specialist (ranked 1033 in singles and 123 in doubles), allthough not quite as good as Kondratieva. Lefevre and Kondratieva have played 10 tournaments together as a team in 2010. A tough match for Barbat/Grage!

Barbat/Grage will probably play Tuesday. Good luck!

Re: Mai Grage

Copenhagen doubles, 1st round:

Kondratieva/Lefevre def. Barbat/Grage 6-0 6-4

I hope we'll see some better press photos from the match. This is a screenshot of the livestream:



Grage/Barbat have never played doubles together, and 1st set was a disaster. Kondratieva/Lefevre were really good and experienced; they always made the right choices in shots and movements. Grage/Barbat managed a bit better in the 2nd set.

Tak for indsatsen; glæder mig til at se jer igen!

Re: Mai Grage

I see that Mai is not playing US Open Junior's so I guess Roland Garros, was her last junior tournament (other than youth olympics)?

I guess so. I remember reading a Danish article - probably from the beginning of 2010 or end of 2009 where Mai Grage said she would play 100% on the Junior circuit throughout 2010 just to see how far it would bring her. I guess good Junior results can be some kind of shortcut to the pro circuit...

But with her present (mediocre) Junior rankings and her recent success at ITF/WTA I guess she might as well set her mind on the pro circuit! But I haven't read anything official about it. (She does have a schedule online at The Danish Tennis Federation, and Youth Olympics is indeed the last tournament scheduled in 2010).

Re: Mai Grage

Youth Olympics, singles:

2R: (7)Jana Cepelova (SVK) d. Mai Grage 3-6 7-6(1) 6-4

Too bad, but Cepelova is a good player ranked somewhat higher than Mai Grage. But Mai really should have won the match being a set up! I suppose we'll hear some news about Mai's performance at tennissporten.dk later. Now focus on the doubles tomorrow!

Re: Mai Grage

Mai Grage has a long and quite interesting blog update from The Youth Olympics. It's in Danish (and far too long for me to translate at the moment):

Re: Mai Grage

It's been a while since we heard something from Mai Grage, but it seems like her next tournament is scheduled:

27 Sep to 03 Oct 2010: $25,000 Helsinki, Finland (hard)

She's alternate #119 at the moment but may move into the q-draw once the withdrawal deadline appoches (14 september)?

Re: Mai Grage

Mai Grage was on the qualifying entry list for 25K Helsinki but she has withdrawn from the tournament (late withdrawal - I don't know the the reason). Karen Barbat has also withdrawn so Malou Ejdesgaard is now the only Dane playing Helsinki.
