Doesnt look like Soylu should be ranked where she is ranked. Anybody knows why she had such a substantial drop from her career high?
IIRC she had kind of a burn out and took a rest from the tour for some times as she couldn't handle the pressure any more.

Dirk Hordoff (Vice President of the German Tennis Association) and Alexander Antonitsch (father of Mira Antonitsch) had meeting there. They have faught really hard to get rid of the new useless Tennis Tour Rules. This is what Dirk wrote on FB:

"So Alexander Antonitsch and Dirk Hordorff had dinner tonight. Eating 4 starters, one main course and dessert discussing all outstanding issues regarding the WTT Tour.

Good news came from WTA. Tournament board representive agreed for points on 15 k tournaments ITF. We believe that players board representive will also agree.

ATP player council is also in favor of supporting the reforms of this desaster WTT. Still hoping the responsible persons in the management notice that time is running and changes need to be implemented now.

Following decisions and suggestions :

1. ATP and ITF should implement fines for employees and management for use of following words:

2. Double up fines for employees or board members who deny the mess they produced regarding WTT and argue with the words pathway, healthy and integrity

3. ATP, WTA and ITF should excuse to all players who were not eligable to participate in our sport for many month and or had big cost for travelling around the world.

4. Instead of destroying tennis ITF should make sure, that enough tournaments with enough spots in qualifying are offered to the players. 48 qualifying draws.
Better calendar.

5. Instead of giving Thomas Koenigsfeld any more awards for the mess he produced with his committee ITF should honor the players who made the facebook groups ITF against players, Change ITF Rules - United Tennis. Additional awards for the players which organised the protest posters at the futures events.

6. ITF should not waste time to agree to following point shedule and ATP and WTA should agree also

QF on at 15 K m/w:
QF : 1
SF : 3
F : 6
W : 10

15 K and hospitality should give like 25 K on ATP

25 K :
Round 16 : 1
QF : 4
SF : 7
F : 10
W : 15

25K with hospitality on ATP
Round 16 : 1
QF : 5
SF : 10
F : 15
W : 20"

Maybe their friendship or alliance is the reason why Mira got WC. She had been injured for some time and she took advantage of that opportunity very well.

Good showing from 18yo WC Kathleen Kanev (GER) against a much more experienced opponent. Apparently, her mom is Czech and she plays with a one-handed backhand. Two good reasons to like her ;)

Something bugs me, is it Scholsen on the main picture ? :confused: I don't know why they would put her but it looks like her :lol: The outfit, the sponsor, the racket.. Even the earrings looks the same. It's pointless but I want to know now :lol:

edit: She won the doubles here last year, they probably choosed a random pic but that must be her :p
Well it must the first time she wins a round above 25k so maybe it helped haha

Krejcikova has really turned on her singles game over the past month! These results should definitely help her get into at least the qualifying draws of some of the bigger doubles tournaments she plays.
