Mammoth Titlist … list

Posted by gauloises1 on July 19, 2010

I have to apologise for my protracted absence. Life stuff in the first half of the week followed by sustaining a silly and very painful eye injury on Wednesday which required me to lie in the dark being very bored … Well, that’s my excuse.

So who’s been winning while I’ve been away?

Bastad – ATP

Almagro continued his quest for universal popularity by beating Robin Soderling 75 36 62 for his sixth career title and first since Acapulco in 2009.

Bastad – WTA

Aravane Rezai beat Gisela Dulko 63 46 64 for her fourth career title and second this year. She’s now 4-0 in finals.

Budapest

Agnes Szavay defended her title, beating last year’s whipping woman Patty Schnyder 62 64.

Newport

While everyone else was playing Davis Cup last weekend, Mardy Fish won the soup thing.

Palermo

Quarterfinalist at Wimbledon and now defeater of Flavia Pennetta on home clay, Kaia Kanepi, ladies and gentlemen.

Prague

Second title in one post two weeks for Agnes Szavay, this time over Stepanova wedding guest Zahlalova Strycova, and she seems to have just about found her feet on clay for 2010. Never accused of good timing, our Agnes.

Stuttgart

A fifth career title for Montanes, conqueror of Federer earlier this year in Estoril, didn’t quite come the way he would have wanted after Gael Monfils turned his ankle at the end of the first set and was forced to retire 1-2 down in the second. Get better soon, Gael. Incidentally, five career titles and he doesn’t even get a look in on Davis Cup? Sometimes I wish I was Spanish.

WTA Tuesday: JJ Survives

Posted by gauloises1 on April 14, 2010

Three seeds fell in Barcelona; Aravane Rezai was taken down by defending champion Roberta Vinci, Regina Kulikova took out Lucie Safarova, and Gisela Dulko was shown the door by Sara Errani – who, by the way, is rapidly developing into someone you don’t want landing in your favourite’s section of the draw come Roland Garros.

Meanwhile in Charleston Elena Vesnina relished her role as the dream-crusher of the day, knocking out Heather Watson (who did incredibly well to qualify) in straight sets.

The Ponte Vedra finalist, Olga Govortsova, was forced to retire with left knee tendonitis; Virginie Razzano’s dismal year continues; and JJ survived a tough challenge from Edina Gallovits to progress in three. Ajde.

Random Fed Cuppage

Posted by gauloises1 on February 5, 2010

So this Europe/Africas round robin in Lisbon business is confusing the hell out of me. But I do know that after getting off to a great start against Bosnia, Team GB slumped to defeat against Austria and now have to face Belarus. So that will probably go well.

The good/bad news, depending on your perspective, is that Victoria Azarenka was benched today after being forced to retire against Sybille Bammer on day one. Wozniacki is also reportedly suffering from health problems. And in more woe for the younger generation, Larcher de Brito was trounced by Patty Schnyder.

I demand a training montage.

Full scores here if you can make head or tail of them …

We are also looking forward to the weekend’s World Group and World Group II ties, and although Russia-Serbia has a certain appeal …

… it’s Poland vs. Belgium in the second-tier World Group that I’d want to see.

What a very recognisable Belgian team.

Bring it.

I almost certainly won’t get a chance to preview the ties properly, but here’s what’s going on:

World Group

Ukraine v Italy
Kharkiv, Ukraine

Czech Republic v Germany
Brno, Czech Republic

Serbia v Russia
Belgrade, Serbia

France v USA
Lievin, France

World Group II

Australia v Spain
Adelaide, Australia

Poland v Belgium
Bydgoszcz, Poland

Estonia v Argentina
Tallinn, Estonia

Slovak Republic v China
Bratislava, Slovak Republic

Saturday Results: Budapest, Newport

Posted by gauloises1 on July 12, 2009

Budapest

We have our finalists.

szavaypatty

It’ll be fourth seed Agnes Szavay against top seed Patty Schnyder in the final of the Gaz de France, as the former took care of Alona Bondarenko 61 62. Patty had to do double duty, finishing off a rain-delayed match with Alisa Kleybanova that went to three hard-fought sets before returning to lay the smackdown on mad twatter Edina Gallovits. With all due respect to the whiteness of Patty’s mile, I’ll be rooting for Agnes tomorrow. Considering that earlier on this year – not so very long ago, really – we were all marvelling at how far she had fallen, she’s climbed out of a big hole quite impressively.

Newport

rajeev ram

Recognise this guy? No, me neither. Should I? This is Rajeev Ram, who beat Olivier Rochus 63 64 to advance to the finals of world ridiculousness championships, the Campbell’s Pepsi Ronson Cilit Bang championships. He’ll meet Sam Querrey, who beat defending champion Fabrice Santoro 63 76(2).

emperor fabulous

See you, Emperor Fabulous.

RG Day Two: WTA Round-Up

Posted by gauloises1 on May 25, 2009

Mixed fortunes for the seeds today.

Seventeenth seed Patty Schnyder fell to Kateryna Bondarenko, a.k.a the Brunette One. Bondarenko’s had good results so far this year, including wins over Agnieszka Radwanska and Alize Cornet. More importantly, she looks freaking hilarious in some of the pictures.

patty

bondarenko

Please use the free time this will give you to work on your book or find a good therapist, Patty.

Anna Chakvetadze, the twenty-sixth seed, lost to Marina Duque Marino in the battle of the Russian Mafia vs. the Colombian Drug Lords. OK, it’s not a huge surprise, but as my commentator noted cautiously, “This may represent a new low for Chakvetadze.”

It’s a shame, because I rather liked her outfit.

chak 

 

chak2

 

 

Any chance we’re going to get to see Svetlana in that? Probably not. Still, well done to Mariana in the moated grange.

The biggest shock of the day was probably the upset of Flavia Pennetta by Alexa Glatch. The fourteenth seed was a quarterfinalist last year (and her outfit was lovely.)

flavs

But that’s a hell of a Fed Cup audition for Alexa Glatch, the hero of the U.S. tie against the Czech Republic. Even Venus dropped a set today. That doesn’t look too good when set against a pair of breadsticks served to an excellent clay-courter.

glatch

I must admit I’ve never seen Glatch play, but she’s making me sit up and take notice with these results.

Oh, and we lost another good outfit when unseeded Maria Kirilenko fell to Australia’s Olivia Rogowska.

makiri

Love the colour of the skirt and the wristbands. Actually, is this even Maria Kirilenko, or is it a captioning fail? I can’t freaking tell. If it’s Rogowska, then hey, we get to keep the outfit for another round.

aggie

Apart from that, the other seeds fared well, with Agnieszka Radwanska ending Paraguay’s interest in the ladies’ singles by defeating De Los Rios in straights, Dominika Cibulkova knocking out  and Zheng Jie Jie Zheng putting out local hope Cohen-Aloro – and looking mighty cute doing it. Great colour.

zheng

Outside the seedings, clay-courters-to-watch Carla Suarez Navarro and Agnes Szavay progressed in straights, as did Akgul Amandurova, Jill Craybas, Mariya Koryttseva, Jarmila Groth and Tathiana Garbin. Giant-killer-killing Polona Hercoq knocked out Alisa Kleybanova and half the suicide pool

There was woe for the home crowds as Camille Pin fell to Thailand’s Tamarine Tanasugarn, but homegirl Aravane Rezai, who picked up a title last week in Strasbourg, knocked out veteran (i.e. ancient) Ai Sugiyama.

rezai

Believe me, if you didn’t see her goth all-black additionally-frilled version of this outfit c. the Australian Open, you should be so relieved she’s wearing this one.

Oh, and all the Brits are now out, as Mel South fell to Michelle Larcher de Brito (after a bagel first set, no less – it’s de Brito’s second match where such a thing has occurred) and Katie O’Brien was summarily dismissed by Olga Govortsova. Now on to suck and fail at Wimbledon!

Full ladies’ results here.

WTA Madrid: We Have Our Finalists

Posted by gauloises1 on May 16, 2009

Caroline Wozniacki d. Amelie Mauresmo, 76(1) 63

woz

Yeah, this basically sucked.

Momo played a smart first set … right up until she served for it at 5-3, whereupon she promptly fell apart. Broken, took it to the tiebreak, lost that, and completely imploded. It was a full-scale Momo meltdown. Old school. All credit to Wozniacki though, who played a smart match and executed her tactics well. I *loathe* all that moonballing she does, and it hurts seeing her attempt backhand volleys, but she’s definitely one of the better readers of the game among the young players. I’d like to see her develop a touch more purpose – sometimes she doesn’t seem to know what to do with the balls she chases down – but this was a great win for her.

As for you, Momo …

momo2momo

You’re still my girl.

Dinara Safina d. Patty Schnyder, 64 62

dina2

Not too much to say about this one. Patty put up a good show in places, but couldn’t get anywhere near enough penetration on her groundstrokes to trouble Dinara – who lost her range in places, but kept getting it back. Good stuff.

So Dinara advances to her third straight final (fifth in 2009?) and Patty has more time to work on her book. Everybody wins!

Crazy Patty Schnyder Lives Up To The Name

Posted by gauloises1 on May 16, 2009

How have I never seen this before?!

It’s the official website for Schnyder’s book The White Mile, and it’s frankly terrifying.

OK, it’s old – publication is apparently scheduled for “March 2008” – but still.

For more info on Patty and her batshit husband, check this. Or just google “crazy Patty Schnyder”.

WTA Madrid Results: Quarterfinals Day

Posted by gauloises1 on May 15, 2009

So we have our WTA semifinalists.

safina

woz

patty

And …

momo

They all said I was mad when I predicted Momo making the semifinals. But I showed them! And now for my race of atomic supermen to conquer the world.

I didn’t see Wozniacki vs. Dushevina but it doesn’t look thrilling, although this is a good result for the new top 10 player. Szavay played a fantastic first set, but Momo served better in the second and generally raised her level, and after a certain point, Szavay just fell away – her game completely disappeared. Mental exhaustion from the match against Azarenka more than anything, probably. Still, this was a great run for her.

szavay2jj

Safina looked tired against Blonderenko, but managed to win without playing hugely well. As for Jankovic, I’m not sure what to say. Schnyder played well, and was as frustrating an opponent as she can be, but JJ simply wasn’t there. Far too many UFEs. As soon as she started playing like herself – hitting with purpose and not missing – she broke Schnyder at the beginning of the second set, but she simply couldn’t sustain it. Not fun to watch. But hopefully she can go and rest up and be ready for Roland Garros …

Singles – Quarterfinals
(1) Dinara Safina (RUS) d. Alona Bondarenko (UKR) 64 63
Patty Schnyder (SUI) d. (4) Jelena Jankovic (SRB) 76(6) 63
