That was very convincing from Arthur. He looked well within himself.

Another interesting article about Matilda, this time:

www.itftennis.com/en/news-and-media/articles/mutavdzic-im-a-different-player-following-nadals-words-of-wisdom/

Mainly focusing on her move to Spain and her recent W15k adult title:

In March, Mutavdzic relocated to Spain and began training at Rafael Nadals academy in Manacor, where she is coached by Gabriel Urpi, and is now looking to showcase her upgraded brand of tennis in Paris.

I love it at Rafa Nadal Academy. Everybody is super professional and super motivated and its just a great atmosphere for me to work on my goals, Mutavdzic told itftennis.com.

My parents and I were trying to find a place like that, a place where I can move forward and it ticked all the boxes. All the staff and everybody there makes it so special, including Rafa himself and Toni [Nadal], and its a great pool of people to train with.

All aspects of my game have definitely improved since starting there: serve, how fast Im hitting the ball, mentally everything. It has all improved drastically.

We also get to see Rafa quite frequently and he is very aware of how each and every player is doing, how they are competing and their results.

Depending on where I have been and who I have played, he has offered me lots of words of encouragement, advice and tricks of the trade, especially about how to approach the match and deal with any pre-match nerves.

France's tournament went from bad to worse yesterday when the number one seed in the boys' event, Mayot, the number one junior in the world, got beaten in three sets by a Serbian lad I'd never seen before but who has a very impressive strong arm in his game.

Meanwhile, Matilda is currently playing very well and looks very comfortable.

No troubles in the second set either, although she looked a little bit more tense.

6-1 6-3

Very nice. And that's two out of two into the last 16

Very likely that she'll next play the star of French junior tennis at the moment, Else Jacquemot, who is currently WTA about 500.

Will be intersting....

looks like the Girls No.1 seed from Andorra (who Matilda beat on the way to her 15k title) is following the Boys No.1 out the door.
