Re: Gb Girls

GOOD LUCK IN 2016 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Re: Gb Girls

Sad to see the defending champion have to pull out, but it means Mel's in!

Of course, it's a double-edged sword, since she'd have been likely to win matches in qualifying and will now need to win a main draw match to avoid her ranking taking a hit, but it's an important step for GB Tennis to get two girls into a slam as main draw DAs for, I'm pretty sure, the first time this century.

Cool Re: Gb Girls

Good luck Melanie.

As you say, two GB Girls in the Main Draw of the Australian Open is brilliant for British Tennis and I am sure someone will know when this last happened.

The last time there were two GB women in the main draw of a slam without needing WCs was at the 1993 US Open - Jo Durie and Clare Wood. That was 61 slams ago!

I think the last time there were two GB women in the main draw of the AO was earlier the same year, when Monique Javer was a DA and Clare Wood qualified.
