Arrow Kawana 25k F: Gajdosova (SVK) (3) def 16 y.o Holland (AUS) (WC) 7-5 6-4

Great tournament for Jarka;

R1: defeated Olivia ROGOWSKA (AUS) (#438) 5-7 6-4 6-0
R2: defeated Remi TEZUKA (JPN) (#495) 6-2 6-0
QF: defeated Michaela JOHANSSON (SWE) (#673) 6-0 6-2
SF: defeated Sacha JONES (NZL) (5) (#313) 6-1 6-1
F: defeated Isabella HOLLAND (AUS) (WC) (NR) 7-5 6-4

Congrats on the win
This will see her end the year ranked firmly inside the top 200.
Good luck for the rest of the season

But, to Isabella
A wonderful tournament from the 16 year old, who will now re-enter the rankings ranked between 597 and 603. She has proven she has got what it takes to play women far older and more experienced than herself, and beat them;

R1: defeated Emelyn STARR (AUS) (Q) (#557) 6-2 7-6(7)
R2: defeated Jessica MOORE (AUS) (1) (#144) 6-3 6-4
QF: defeated Alexis PROUSIS (USA) (7) (#354) 6-3 6-4
SF: defeated Yi Miao ZHOU (CHN) (4) (#288) 5-7 6-4 6-0
F: lost to Jarmila GAJDOSOVA (SVK) (3) (#199) 5-7 4-6

She should be very proud of her efforts and is definitely now in line for an Australian Open wildcard in January, 2009.

But she didnt play any single top 300 and just one top 400. What a cheap title.

There were only 2 other top 300 players in the draw anyways, Jess Moore and Yi-Miao Zhou, so its not as if she did it the easy way, it wouldn't have been very tough ANY way.

Congrats, Jarka

^^^^
Still listed, officially, by ITF as Slovakian
Hence I didn't put (AUS) next to her name

Good to see that the 2 people to push Jarmila were both Aussie juniors (Rogowska, Holland)

Great tournament for both, hopefully this leads to some good things over the rest of circuit for both.

Holland's dream run ends

12:00a.m. 22nd September 2008

Third seed Jarmilla Gajdosova ended Isabella Holland’s dream run through the Sunshine Coast International at Kawana tennis club yesterday afternoon, defeating the teenager in straight sets in the women’s final.
Gajdosova won the final 7-5 6-4, putting an end to Holland’s stunning run of upsets – the 16-year-old Brisbane schoolgirl had already ousted the number one, four and seven seeds on her way to yesterday’s decider.
The victory was a pleasing form reversal for Gajdosova, who last week lost the Pro Circuit final at the Rockhampton event, after having won the opening set and holding a comfortable lead in the second.
No such issues yesterday, picking up the sole break in each set to claim a hard-earned victory in blustery conditions.
“Last weekend I kind of choked ... this week I was just hoping that I would finish it,” Gajdosova said.
“I just had to do what I had to do to put the ball in and make her run and hopefully make some winners, which happened.
“She made a couple of mistakes, which helped me ... she had chances that she didn’t take, but she’s 16 and I have a couple of years more experience.
“She’s a great player, very talented, and will play many more finals.”
After a season hampered by injury, Gajdosova was happy to finally see a tournament through to its conclusion.
“I haven’t played much this year, I’ve had a lot of time injured, a couple of months,” she said.
“This is my first week were I’ve won a couple of matches in a row, which was great, but it’s still kind of hard for me to finish the matches.
“But I’m getting better and back to my old form which is great.”
In the men’s final, top seed Colin Ebelthite confirmed his number-one status, defeating sixth seed Marinko Matosevic in straight sets, 6-4 7-6 (3).
Matosevic hadn’t dropped a set all tournament, but was kept under control by Ebelthite and his booming groundstrokes.
The Pro Circuit now moves to Gympie.
