It's a brain teaser for the game plan designers at the WTA tournament in Doha, which required is definitely higher knowledge of mathematics. On Monday, the Start of the main field was recognised in Qatar as it is in most of the Events are common. Alone, it the game was missing inside to fill the "Order of Play" for that day. Some there were, also Stars as Elina Switolina, Angelique Kerber, Julia Görges, Caroline Wozniacki or Kiki Bertens, but had to wait on her opponents, which were determined in the last qualifying round. Or to those who were not even there.
And that was a lot. 14 players compete in Doha in single or double, were in the draw on Saturday evening in the Fed Cup is involved, is carried out by the International tennis Federation ITF. The majority of in Europe, but an eternity of Doha. The start of the Main Draw consisted of just once a game, between the Czech, Barbora Strycova, and a Wild Card from Oman.
Halep celebrated extensively
Particularly hard hit are the protagonists of the most competitive Fed-Cup-quarter-finals of the world group between the Czech Republic and Romania in Ostrava. The Team of Simona Halep had completed the eleven victories comprehensive home series of the Czech women after a dramatic victory in the double-the first time ever the semi-final. Halep, Pliskova on Sunday in a classic with a 6:4 in the third set wrestled to the ground, was later, at the celebrations on the Front line.
"I celebrated the victory with the Team extensively," said Halep on Tuesday morning, on request, "then I was the whole of Monday on the road, first in the car to Vienna and then on the plane. Now I'm especially tired." A cancellation had not been for you, but the question, she said: "I have good memories of this tournament."
Pliskova, in turn, was laid on Monday, the 300 kilometers from Ostrava to Vienna. In Schwechat, you climbed on the plane and landed Monday morning in Doha. In the afternoon you hit the first few balls and then completed their media obligations. "I have very little sleep and am very tired," said the tournament number 2, "but I only play on Wednesday and hope that it goes to better." The conversion is great, also because of the completely different climatic conditions, but Pliskova takes on the challenge. "Of course I would have preferred to have a few days break. But I will try to sleep well, and my physical therapist is also here. We will make everything, so I'm for the first game."
Barty said from
The work ethic is true, but From the Reported only Ashleigh Barty and shortly before your first use of the Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia said after the draw. The Australian, who contributed on Sunday in North Carolina, and two points to the 3:2 away win against the USA, but would have to possess psychic powers in order to reach Doha on time.
Yet less rest time than Halep and Pliskova have all those who do not benefit, at least from a start of around bye: Camila Giorgi, Mihaela Buzarnescu, Jelena Ostapenko, Sasnowitsch, Anastasija Sevastova, Elise Mertens and Katerina Siniakova – they all arrived on Monday and already have to play on Tuesday. This is because the tournament ends on Saturday and you would have to play in the event of reaching the Finals every day. Whether or not a can stand of you the fatigue until the very end?
