Voegele sets clash against top seed

Thank you for your reading and interest in the news Voegele sets clash against top seed and now with details

Aden - Yasmin Abdel Azim - : Dubai regular Stefanie Voegele is feeling a cent per cent confident about her chances at the ongoing 22nd Al Habtoor Tennis Challenge as she lined up a meeting against top seed Kristina Mladenovic for the second successive year.

Voegele took just over an hour to brush aside Czech girl Barbora Krejcikova 6-4, 6-1 to set a meeting against Mladenovic later on Wednesday.

Last year, the 29-year-old had defeated Mladenovic in their Round Three meeting. “This time it’s in Round Two. I’ve beaten her last time and I can do it again this time too,” Voegele told Al Khaleej Today.

“I was pretty solid today [against Krejcikova]. But the more important thing for me will be to pay attention to my own game rather than try and see what she [Mladenovic] would be doing. I will try and be as good as I can. I will just concentrate on my game and see how I can find ways to improve my game against a better player,” she added.

Making her Dubai debut in 2007, this year marks Voegele’s eighth appearance at this $100,000 ITF World Tennis Tour event held at the end of each year. She has been a regular here, except for a couple of times due to illness and injury. “I love coming here, and the goal this week is to ensure I get as many outdoor matches as possible. Once I return to Europe I will be back playing indoors and that won’t help me too much as I need to be prepared for the Australian Open,” Voegele reflected.

Also advancing to the next round was second seed Viktoria Kuzmova with a 6-4, 7-6 (2) win over qualifier Aleksandra Krunic, while fifth seed Sara Sorribes Tormo got the better of Urszula Radwanska 6-0, 6-4.
