Re: For fans of Marina Erakovic, Sacha Jones, Ellen Barry and other kiwis

All the seeds got through today at the Pascoes the Jewellers NZ Residentials, but this meant there was a few upsets...

Tanya Samodelok won her first round match 6-1 6-0, then withdrew from her next match injured
Mikaela Davies lost to Amelia Harris in three sets (although the third set was a bagel...hope Mikaela aint injured as well)
Also Briar lost to Tracey in two close sets

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: For fans of Marina Erakovic, Sacha Jones, Ellen Barry and other kiwis

Rising teen tennis star Tanya Samodelok must meet strict residency rules if she is to play for New Zealand


Thirteen-year-old Russian tennis player Tanya Samodelok faces a major hurdle in her bid to play for New Zealand.


Samodelok's won the national under-18 championships and looms as this country's most promising player since Sacha Jones.


But her coach John McMahon says Tanya must fulfil residency requirements before qualifying for New Zealand. She has been staying here on a Students Visa for the past three years but strict residential laws must be met.


Samodelok has attracted interest overseas and it is thought she could be lost to New Zealand if she does not become eligible to represent this country soon.

Re: For fans of Marina Erakovic, Sacha Jones, Ellen Barry and other kiwis

Ellen Barry is odds-on to be presented with a wildcard into the main draw of this month's ASB Tennis Classic.


Promising teenager Ellen Barry is odds-on to be presented with a wildcard into the main draw of this month's ASB Tennis Classic.


The tournament's final wildcard for top fifty players has yet to be asked for, with the deadline now only six days away. Classic tournament director Richard Palmer says when the deadline passes he will invite Barry into the main draw.


Palmer says Barry has expressed her interest and she will play in qualifying if the final wildcard is not snapped up. Palmer says most of the players arrive for the tournament on Christmas eve, making it a very busy time of year.

Re: For fans of Marina Erakovic, Sacha Jones, Ellen Barry and other kiwis

Leela Beattie participated in the Christchurch Junior Xmas Tournament this week (me as usual didnt no it was on until a few minutes ago, when I found the results of it)

R2: Def Bridget Thomas 6-0 6-0
QF: Def [5] Beth Williamson 6-0 6-1

Re: For fans of Marina Erakovic, Sacha Jones, Ellen Barry and other kiwis

Seems that Emily's had a pretty good week the states, all be it at a 12 and Under event

Canterbury’s Emily Fanning had an impressive performance at the 12s girls at the Junior Orange Bowl 46th Intl. Tennis Championships in Florida making the semi-finals.

'Emily knocked out seed Viktoriya Lavrentiera (RUS) in the the quarterfinals before 7/6 6/2 before going down to Madison Keys (USA) 6/2 6/2 ending her campaign in Florida.

Emily returns back to Timaru for christmas before she sets off with the NZ 12u team to Gosford for the test match and Nationals.'

Kai Vano had a winable match, and she blew it

Shona was expected to get absolutely thrashed by Jill Craybas and she did

Sacha will almost certainly loose to Vera Z, so shes just got to go in there and play the best possibly match she can. There is always the chance that there may be a few rain delays, this would increase the chances of Sacha winning (Sacha is very good at handling stress...no comment about Bepa).

If Sacha, Casey, Jarmilla loose at least one kiwi will make it to Round 2 (Marina vrs Ellen)

Never seen Ellen before, she looks cute and sweet

Dear lord Marina! She has the manliest legs I've ever seen on a woman!

BTW, Zvonareva did say she was feeling kind of tired in a recent interview, but that might just be jet lag. Anything that can give Sacha some extra help is welcome!

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

Ellens adorable yea, she used to be reasonably porky but has really slimmed down in the past few years! Saying that Cadbury will always be her best friend

She always had manly legs...and manly shorts!

Im so looking forward to Sacha's match!!!
