Yes, she is. Unfortunately she was very nervous against Date-Krumm and couldn't cope with her exceptional game style and got completely outplayed. But it was a good learning experience and having won the qualis is still a great success for her.

Antonia Lottner is also a very interesting talent. She has a nice all-around game and i am pretty sure that she will become a very good grass court player.

Congrats, Ahmed! Novak played brilliantly today. He lost only 6 points on his own serve.

Chardy isn't a real test though. I only watched the 1st set. Haas next.
Tommy is the better player on grass so I won't be surprised if he wins. Nole will need his best tennis for sure.

If Tommy wins, I would love to see him win wimbly.

I expect Nole to win in 4 against Tommy. The most dangerous opponent for him is Tomic IMO, who he can possibly meet in QF. I have seen Nole twice playing against him and it looked like as if he has some problems with his special style of play.

Re: » Off Topic - Mona fans chat thread » Love you Marco ♥ Forever BVB ♥

Following on from an earlier post some weeks ago about netball, here in NZ (and Australia) the ANZ netball season has reached the semifinals stage. I've mentioned before that after a stage where I had to learn about the game, I find this sport very watchable.

There is one NZ team in the semis, the defending ANZ champions the Waikato/BOP Magic. They are the only NZ team to win this competition. The Magic are also the only team from either country to reach the semifinals every year of the competition since the joint Aus/NZ competition began in 2008 (before that NZ and Aus had separate leagues).

The second strongest NZ side in most years, the Northern Mystics, suffered many injuries, players becoming pregnant, retiring etc and finished near the bottom of the table. In their final game of the season one of their shooters, Bailey Mes who apparently has the highest jump and fastest sprint in the team, ruptured her ACL (injury looked really bad) and is out for the year. A real shame for her because she was starting to make herself a part of the national Silver Ferns squad.

There are three Australian teams in the semis, the Adelaide Thunderbirds, the Melbourne Vixens, the Queensland Firebirds.

The Adelaide and Melbourne teams finished 1st and 2nd and will play a Major semifinal. Winner waits for the finalist to qualify. The loser of the major semi plays the winner of the minor semi, between the Magic and the Firebirds.

This is exactly the same position that the Magic were in last year- halfway through the season they found themselves in a "backs to the wall" or "must win" position. A single loss means the end of their season. Last year they responded to that and won many games in a row to take the title. This year they are lifting at the end of the season too, winning their last 5 games to unexpectedly end up 3rd in the regular season competition, just like last year. The Magic coach Noeline Taurua is also retiring this year after coaching the Magic for 11 years.

Both semis are being played today (Sunday), major semi at 2pm, minor at 7pm NZ time (GMT+12). I'm hoping the Magic can become the first team to defend the title and the first team to win the ANZ Championship twice. They seem to play best with their backs to the wall.

The Magic are traditionally the strongest NZ team, over half their team is in the national NZ team the Silver Ferns.

In their must win semi against the Queensland Firebirds they will have to shut down 6 ft 5 (1.96m) Jamaican import shooter Romelda Aiken- however since the defensive circle for the Magic is basically the Silver Ferns defensive circle, it is possible- the Magic beat the Firebirds a few weeks ago by 3 goals in extra time.

She is quite a good ball striker on both wings and is technically very gifted. She has a good serve and does really well at the net, which makes her a good doubles player. I would characterize her as a very intuitive player with a lot of surprising elements in her game. So it's likely that she will become a bit unpredictable with regard to her performances, especially at the beginning of her career. She will surely need some time to get her game together, as she is not a one-dimensional ball striker. Additionally she seems to be a strong-nerved player.

Here is a short video of Antonia. She is the player who is on serve.



Thanks to 62Yukon

Del Potro is the last of my troopers .

After a good start the injury bug hit some, Paire decided to clown, & i didn't know how Kei lost.

I just hope that anyone but Murray wins, even if it's Ferrer

The interview behind the link is not the one that was conducted by SPORT-BILD and he doesn't say anything about Goetze there.

He told SPORT-BILD recently that he can't understand Goetze's decision to go to Bayern, for he can't see any sporting reasons for such a move. He also said that he was very annoyed by Mario's choice and that he communicated his thoughts concerning this matter to Goetze in a personal conversation.
