Lightbulb Lawrenceville 50K:Baker/Ditty def Fusano/Tsoubanos 7-6(5),6-4!!What a week for DITTY!

Congrats on winning the doubles title! I think this will put Julie into the top 100 in doubles. Her previous highest ranking was #99 * feb, 06 ). Julie Ditty had an AMAZING week infront of her home crowd. She has been on the tour for 5 years and has not been past #229 in the world. This week she started out world #297 and will end the year world #250. She will have a shot at playing in the quali draw in Australia if she wins a couple matches in the San Diego 50K next week
Does anyonelse have any other info in Julie ?? Her WtaTour.com profile does not go into great detail . I know that she is 27 years old and only started on the tour 5 years ago! Did she go to college ?? Thanks...

not 100% sure but i believe Ditty graduated from University of Tennessee and played #1 on the team there, they announced at the tournie that her parents and grandparents had driven down from Tennessee to watch the final.

Leanne Baker has a nice lefty game as well, with a 1-handed backhand. It's always a little funny to watch 2 lefties playing doubles together.

Ditty played US OPEN Qualies in 1999 as a WC. I am assuming that was playing tennis in college at the time and recieved one that way. Maybe she won 1 of the big college titles ?? She also played Us Open Qualies in 2005 based on her ranking. No other slam appearences in singles. I do not know about doubles. WTAtour.com does not post that sort of info for every player. :-( So...if she can win a match or 2 next week in San Diego she could play in the Australian Open for the first time at age 27 What great story!

I think she went to Vanderbilt actually (so in Tennessee still). I think she got that qualie WC in 99 for winning the ITA summer championships.

It's great for Leanne. I read she's in better shape, and the results are coming in.

Here is a picture of the "picture perfect" Ditty family.
