She is ranked #901 Her ranking is not even good enough to get into Qualies. Unless she won some JR event and got a WC into Qualies

Shes #2 in the U18 USTA rankings, she was singles and was a doubles finalists last year in the Clay Court Nationals, and she beat all the rest of the young American hopes in the WC playoff the held. So for U18 girls in America shes the best shot they got.

fuck.

I agree Jamie could become good on clay but the thread starter said at the french

I think Jamea Jackson will be a tough one ot beat on clay this year. Her game is suited perfectly and if her body can be healthy, she could surprise a seed.

The French-USA deal is for a qualifying wildcard. Win or lose the experience will help her. Winning one or two matches will really be a victory for the USA on clay.

fuck.

Perry has a lot of potential she just isnt living up tp it her game is soooo versatile and fun to watch she could do damage but she just doesnt seem to live up to that potential.
