Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Asia was not kind to Alberta this year. I still maintain that she should have defended her 100k title she won in China last year, but she withdrew at the last minute.

Played Guangzhou & Beijing and lost first round to Jie Zhang both occasions.

Linz this week which is super strong this year.

R1: Alberta d. Lisicki 75 46 63. Amazing win considering she was down and out.
R2 Vs. Safarova. Tough, but not impossible. Come in Alberta!

She is out of the running to play in Bali this year, which is a huge shame.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Alberta finally playing an ITF this week

Alberta should win again.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

She lost in the second round and that ends her season.

A season that undoubtedly was her best ever. It's going to be so tough to try and repeat next year, but why not?

Step one would be coming back to Auckland next year and sneaking into the MD. Her ranking has slipped into the 70's now so she will be right around the cut off I would think. Although playing qualies wouldn't be a problem as I'm pretty confident she would get though anybody.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Alberta got another good win over Falconi R1 of the AO. 100 important points collected.

First win of the season.

Keep going Alberta

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Lost to Nina B in R2 26 16.

Pretty average, but she collected 100 points again.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

After a pretty average start to the year, Alberta got back on track with a SF last week in Memphis.

Back up to #62.

Seeded 8th this week in Mexico. Needs all the points she can before her Fes points drop off.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Defending Fes in a couple of weeks, now all the hard work starts

Started well in Denmark this week with a 3 set victory over Barrios. A better win that it looks I think as Barrios' serve would be pretty tough to handle on the indoor hard courts.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Wow Alberta really has no fans

She put up a great fight in losing in 3 sets to Azaranka in the first round of RG 76 46 16.

Great work

She's sitting outside of the top 100 now, but should sneak into the Wimbledon MD.

Re: Alberta Brianti thread!

Alberta is starting back from ITF tournaments after a kind of injury which took her out of the courts almo sr six months. I think she is trying to enter in the Qualifying Draw of Flushing Meadows.
