Awards


Player of the Week




Press Award





Iveta gets a well deserved extra ace for her good form in recent weeks As for Dechy I can't believe the other players allowed her to get the press award

Re: S2 - 4: Australian Open, Melbourne (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








Sev won the title in the Gold Coast, and has a spent a lot of time at #1, however she has never won a title above Tier II level, and she needs to win a big title to justify her ranking, Tamira was awesome last week in Sydney, but was it a fluke or can she maintain her high level? And then there's Dechy I have to include this bitch since she has 4 aces, I may even tip her to win the title


The Contenders








The veteran Americans have been extremely impressive in the past few weeks, each making a final and a semi, Lindsay would be a horror first round since she really makes you work so hard, but does she have the ability to go all the way? Amelie won Auckland, and has 3 aces, she's due a good run at a Slam and this could be it.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters






My prediction for who will win the title?
