I cant wait though, I would love to see Louk up against Marcos Baghdatis!!
I dont know, we really dont have many players to chose from just Kelly of course. Bowtell will probably be there, and she already has experience of being there last year. Mariyana still doesn't have her passport, I doubt she will get it in time Rachael Dillon was dropped from Cal this year, and I dont know if she found another university. Not many players to chose from
Jelena Jankovic | Jelena Dokic | Conny Perrin | Kelly Liggan | Vita Diatchenko | Irini Georgatou

Good result for John, and not a bad prospect in the second round - he hammered Menshawny a while back. But tough draw for Sam. White went on to knock out the number 20 player last week so I don't think beating Sam was a fluke. Hopefully he's a little more tired than Sam, though, having played more singles matches last week.
Bad news is that John's lowest score in his best singles results is 30 points (in fact, all his counted results are 30 points) so he has to make QF or better in order to improve his ranking, which will involve getting past the number 3 seed
Yes, it does suck. She showed promise, but I guess she just wasn't turning a profit and didn't have the funding to keep flying out to tournaments only to lose in the qualification rounds.
Great news from Thailand
IRL MORRISSEY, John d. 15-GBR EL MENSHAWY, Ahmed 61 64
14-IRL BARRY, Sam d. CAN WHITE, Zachary 76(3) 0-0 ret.
John did lose in the doubles, however, which is hardly surprising when his partner is Sam's opponent who retired during his match. Sam has a bye to the second round.
Now John must play the number 3 seed, and Sam will play the number 2 seed If they both lose tomorrow, Sam will get an extra 15 points which by the current rankings would boost him up to 83, but John won't gain anything.
