What's next for Mandy?

According to her IG story, she's still in Florida.

She's not on the Abierto MD entry list (last direct entry is Anna Blinkova WTA 105).

Charleston Q ?

Hoping clay brings positive results.

Mandy plays Schmiedlova in R1 of Charleston.

She should have better chances on clay than in their encounter in Guadalajara three weeks ago, but AKS is the favourite.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella! #keepdreaming #letsmakeithappen (v.2)

Wow!

Mandy was down 3/6, 4/5* against Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, then won 9 games in a row.

3/6, 7/5, 6/0

AKS was the technically better player, hitting more winners, but Mandy was so relentless, never giving up.

I think the constant service breaks until 4/5 in the second set made Anna Karolina doubt more than they affected Mandy.

Mandy's first win in a main draw this year. She plays the winner of Martic/Anisimova next, which will be a much more difficult task.

Big win for Mandy

Couldn't watch it but obviously she took advantage of Schmiedlova not being the toughest player on the tour. She couldn't recover from getting the the rebreak when serving for the match.

Nothing to lose for Mandy in the next round.

Charleston R2:

(16) Martic d. Minella 6/3, 6/3 in 1h21

I didn't see the match except for the last game. There were lots of breaks in the first set, one in the second set.

Re: Allez Mandy Minella! #keepdreaming #letsmakeithappen (v.2)

I watched parts of the match, Mandy sometimes dictating and even overpowering her but at the end Martic was the smarter and more consistent player. Second set was very even but at 3:4 Mandy couldn't hold from 40:15 up, BP was a very close decision after Mandy was wasting several chances to pass Martic and the final passing shot being that close was finally given out by umpire. Mandy herself had BP to break back but could not use it.

Lugano R1: Mandy Minella vs Fiona Ferro

Fiona beat Mandy twice last year, on hard court and clay. But that was just after Mandy's comeback. She reached the SF in Guadalajara 3 weeks ago.

Doubles R1: Lapko/Minella vs Thombare/Yashina
