2013 BNP Paribas Open II

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Hey Tennis Friends!
The women’s main draw has started, so, I figured that I would cover some of the ladies in today’s report:

The results for the matches that I featured are:

Olga Govortsova d. Mandy Minella 6-2, 3-6, 6-4
Despite the 29 point difference in their rankings (#67-Govortsova, #96-Minella), this was a pretty even match-up. I had seen Govortsova play doubles before (she owns 8 WTA doubles titles), but, I had never heard of Minella. Both of these players have been on the tour for about seven years!

Lourdes Dominguez Lino d. Grace Min 1-6, 6-4, 6-3
After a strong first set by Min, Dominguez Lino was able to make adjustments. Both plater had called for their coaches a couple of times. This was a great showing for 18 year old Min, but, the extensive experience of the 31 year old veteran, Dominguez Lino, was the key.

2011 Mercury Insurance Open II

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s the second day for the Mercury Insurance Open at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California!

CORRECTION:
When interviewing Agniezska, I mentioned that she made the quarterfinals at Stanford “last year”, . . . what I meant was last week. She actually made the semifinals at Stanford last year.

Kimiko Date-Krumm was originally only scheduled for today’s singles match. Because of a player withdrawal from a scheduled doubles match, somehow Kimiko (who wasn’t even in the doubles draw), partnered up with Zhang Shuai (who lost her singles match today), for a doubles team that was put into the line up. Their result is below.

Here are the final scores from the matches that I featured:

Kimiko Date-Krumm d. Gisela Dulko 7-5, 6-0

Agnieszka Radwanska d. Elena Baltacha 6-0, 7-6(4)

Sara Errani / Roberta Vinci
d. Liezel Huber / Lisa Raymond 6-3, 6-1

Vera Zvonareva d. Jill Craybas 6-4, 7-5

Kimiko Date-Krumm / Zhang Shuai
d. Chia-Jung Chaung / Olga Govortsova 7-6(4), 6-4
