Re: irish tennis

Could've been Lynsey McCullough, if she was talking about doing Fed Cup training, she's the 4th member of the team. And she has dark hair and most definitely isn't from Cork, I believe she's from somewhere in Ulster. I hope the players don't read this and see you exposing their gossiping about each other

Thats very possible, her accent wasnt particularly thick but it sounded like she was from somewhere up the country. Sure what harm if they do

I remember reading a match report from someone on TF who went to an ITF who said her forehand is definite top 100 material, but her movement and a bad backhand are holding her back.

Re: irish tennis

Bowtell claims Estonian spoils


AMY BOWTELL gave Irish women's tennis a huge lift by capturing her first world ranking singles title as an adult.

The 18-year-old from Greystones, Co Wicklow, seeded No 6, won the $10,000 event in Estonia, edging No 4 seed, Russia's Polina Vinogradova, on a 7-6 5-7 6-4 scoreline in the final.

It was third-time lucky for 552-ranked Bowtell as she was runner-up last month in England to the Netherlands Richel Hogenkamp, and in July 2010 to Britain's Tara Moore.

Bowtell's feat marked the first title win by an Irish woman player in a world-ranking event since former national No 1 Kelly Liggan won a $25,000 top prize in Portugal in August 2006.

There was another Irish title success in the ITF U-18 Circuit Grade 4 event in the Netherlands, when Tramore's Sinead Lohan powered her way to the girls' singles crown.

Playing her second world-ranking tournament of the year, top seed Lohan beat unseeded French opponent Fiona Ferro on a 6-2 1-6 6-4 scoreline.

This marked Lohan's first singles title since the Grade 5 event in Cobh last August.

World No 1 Victoria Azarenka strolled to the Qatar Open title with a 6-1 6-2 win over

Re: irish tennis

There's live scoring available for the tournament Amy's playing in Sweden this week, you can find it here: http://www.proteamonline.se/customer...ontentId=55768

She's on court now in the first round, up 5-2* in the first set.

Edit: Well, nevermind, took the first set 6-2 and her opponent retired.

Re: irish tennis

Has anyone seen Amy play recently?
Any clear reason why the jump in performance this year or is it just a natural age progression?
