If Baltacha beats Farina-Elia tomorrow...

She will become the first Brit in SIX YEARS to be inside the top 100 in the world (the last was Samantha Smith at Wimby '99).

At the very least though she will be ranked around 120 after this tournament, and should break into the top 100 at some point this year.

Good luck to Bally tomorrow

Good luck to Baltacha but i think Farina is going to win, her specialty is beating the low ranked players and then losing to the first higher seeded player she faces. She's lost in the GS 4th rounds, what, 25 times in her career?
