Anyway, some good news from Australia:

Morrissey (IRL) / Chaudry (GBR) def. (WC) Howe (AUS) / Wagland (AUS) 6-4 6-4

Unfortunately their WC opponents were ranked outside the top 250, but still, a win is a win. They'll have to face the top seeds if they make the third round though.
I know this is the exact prize list:

Homes for both men and women winners, cars for the RUs, free airplane tickets to competitions for #3 and computers for #4.
No wonder there is so many up and coming Romanian juniors with these type of prizees

Good win for Morrissey even if it is in doubles, that gives him 5 more pts for his ranking, as he only has won points in 5 doubles tournament. That should put him ahead of Sam Barry in the rankings, by 1 place or two Would also be a new career high for him. They might also win another round

Jelena Jankovic | Jelena Dokic | Conny Perrin | Kelly Liggan | Vita Diatchenko | Irini Georgatou
Domachowska | Bacsinszky | Cirstea | Halep | Chala | Baltacha | Antoniychuk | Naydenova

Beth Mattek-Sands Georgie Stoop

Come back soon Tati
