(JFC, with jot) – Banned from playing for two months, Mandy Minella and Eléonora Molinaro have enjoyed this release as it should be. Dan Kersch (LSAP), the Minister of Sports had indeed authorized from Monday the practice of 32 outdoor sports, including tennis for two.

Wednesday, the Luxembourg n ° 1 and 2 regained their sensations by exchanging a few balls on a clay court of TC Arquebusiers. “I was happy and euphoric to be able to play again,” said Minella. She admitted to having had a “good feeling at the stroke level”, but it was physically that this first session since mid-March proved to be very exhausting. “The intensity on the ground is difficult to reproduce or simulate with simple fitness and strength exercises.”

Note that the two players had no problem respecting the safety rules. For example, they had to be careful to only touch their own balls.

As a reminder, as with all other sports, the 2020 tennis season was completely turned upside down due to the pandemic. This, while Mandy Minella (34) announced at the end of 2019 that she would definitively end her career at the end of this year.
