02/07/2013 – After the Wimbledon Grand Slam tournament Timi spent few days in her hometown, but in Sopron she also prepared for the tasks ahead.
On Monday, she returned to Budapest, where next week she will be playing in singles and doubles in the 235 000 USD WTA tournament.
“I ran in Sopron, done fitness work-outs, but I also played tennis. Yesterday we came to Budapest, I will have hard workouts for the Hungarian Grand Prix “– said the 20-year old player.
Timi enjoyed the grass court tournaments in England, although she had little success…In the Hungarian capital she will play on clay. Last year, she lost in the first round against the Taiwanese Hsieh Su Wei, in doubles she didn’t played.
“I have two tennis work-out a day for the domestic competition. The trainings are hard, we focus on my style, to hit the balls bravely every time. But we practice in all the areas, I enjoy that I can slide on the clay. On Wednesday afternoon I will try the center court of the Római Tennis Academy.”
For a long time it seemed that this year Timi will play doubles with Katalin Marosi, but on Tuesday morning the very accomplished tennis player canceled the joint appearance due to a restricted team competition.
Timi asked some players, and finally decided, Alicja Rosolska will be her partner in Budapest. The 27-year-old Polish tennis player is 45th ranked in doubles. Rosolska was in quarterfinal at the beginning of the year in Paris (Co: Kveta Peschke) and then a few weeks later, in Kuala Lumpur (Co: Marta Domachowska). Rosolska recently was a semifinalist in Katowice (Co: Domachowska) and Brussels (Co: Olga Govortsova), and reached the third round at Roland Garros with Oksana Kalashnikova.
Rosolska’s career best positon was 38th back in 10.10.2011. She played in 12 finals: she triumphed in 2008 in Chile’s Vina del Mar (Co: Liga Dekmeijere), in 2009 in Marbella (Co: Klaudia Jans) and in 2011 in Budapest (Co: Anabel Medina Garrigues).
