Re: Nordic Light Open (News Thread)

Emma Laine FIN and Michaela Johansson SWE get Maindraw Wildcards.

Larsson injured...

Ingen match mellan Larsson och Johansson på fredag
[25/07/2007 16:05]
Det skulle ha spelats en match om ett wildcard till Nordea Nordic Light Opens huvudturnering på fredag den 27 juli mellan Johanna Larsson och Michaela Johansson. Tyvärr stoppar en skada Larssons medverkan och därmed går ett wildcard direkt till Michaela Johansson.
Det skulle ha blivit en match om ett wildcard på fredag men Johanna Larsson tvingades att kasta in handduken p g a skada och därmed får Michaela Johansson ett wildcard till årets turnering. Det blir hennes första framträdande på WTA-touren och en längre intervju med henne kommer upp på hemsidan senare under kvällen där Johansson berättar om sig själv, sitt mål med Nordea Nordic Light Open med mera.

I övrigt så är det också klart att finska Emma Laine får ett wildcard till huvudturneringen.

Nordea Nordic Light Open

Lottningen till årets Nordea Nordic Light Open är klar
[27/07/2007 18:01]
Alldeles precis blev lottningen till årets Nordea Nordic Light Open och ur svensk synvinkel ser det riktigt bra ut, bl a kommer det att starta 3 svenska spelare i huvudturneringen och 5 i kvalet, dessutom startar danska supertalangen Caroline Wozniacki och finska Emma Laine i huvudturneringen.

Alldeles nyss blev det klart med årets lottning till både kvalet och huvudtävlingen. Det blev ur svensk synvinkel mycket bra när man fick med Hanna Nooni, Michaela Johansson och Sofia Arvidsson i huvudturneringen, dessutom tillkommer Caroline Wozniacki från Danmark, Emma Laine från Finland och Kaia Kanepi från Estland.

- Jag har mött henne (Elena Vesnina) en gång tidigare och då vann jag efter en tre-setare. Dock så var det inomhus och inte utomhus. Hon har visat bra form på slutet men jag har tränat bra och det ska bli riktigt kul, säger Sofia.

Det blir ganska meriterat motstånd för de flesta spelarna och det kan bli en riktig holmgång i andra omgången om både Caroline Wozniacki och Sofia Arvidsson skulle gå vidare. För att se lottningen till huvudtävlingen tryck här.

I kvalet så kommer det att starta hela 5 svenskor, Nadja Roma, Aleksandra Srndovic, Madeleine Saari-Byström, Anna Brazhnikova och Melinda Akerbrandt-Bengtsson. Då kan vi också räkna in Malou Ejdesgaard från Danmark, Anastasija Sevastova från Lettland samt Lina Stancute från Litauen. För att se lottningen till kvalet tryck här.

Det kommer senare att komma upp en intervju med Nadja Roma inför helgens kval.


Sofia Arvidsson som fick tyskt motstånd

Last sentence: Sofia fick tyskt motstånd = Sofia got german opponent (tyskt=german, ryskt=russian)

Shortened version in english:
From Swedish point of wiew looks quite good, there will be 3 Swedish players (Hanna, Mikaela and Sofia) in the main draw and 5 in qualifying, also Danish supertalented Caroline Wozniacki, Finnish Emma Laine and Estonian Kaia Kanepi in MD. I have met her (Vesnina) once and won in a three-setter though it was indoors. She has been in great form lately but I have trained hard and it will be a fun to play against her, says Sofia. There will be an interesting match between nordic stars if both Caro and Sofia win their first matches. In the qualifying wil start 5 Swedish players, Nadja Roma, Aleksandra Srndovic, Madeleine Saari-Byström, Anna Brazhnikova och Melinda Akerbrandt-Bengtsson, Malou Ejdesgaard from Denmark, Anastasija Sevastova from Latvia and Lina Stancute from Lithuania. Later here will be an interwiew with Nadja Roma.
