Im so looking forward to Sacha's match!!!
Having watched Ellen play for the 1st time properly a couple of months ago, never woulda guessed she was "porky". Seemed in great shape.

If Marina beats Harkelskank today, she'd e the 1st Kiwi since when to make the QF's in singles of a wta?
I'd guess it wouldn't have happened since the days of Richardson, Toleafoa or Cordwell yeah?
Great to see her get the 1st set t/b!!

She did win

Its the first time since Cordwell I think....although I'm not even sure if Cordwell got into the quarterfinals of a Wta event....goes on google now...

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

Cordwell was top 20 in the late 80's & made the SF's of the 89 Aus Open!

Your right

Even so - first time in over a decade that a kiwi has the made the quarterfinals of a Wta singles event

Great Achievement for her, it gives her alot of confidence heading into aussie open qualifiers next week

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

I don't have any more good rep's left for today so I'll just post it instead

Thankyou Aussies for congratulating Marina on her performance. It would have been easier to underrate the significance of it (eg with something Alicia or Sam has done) but you kept it all completely positive - Thankyou!

(and you'll all get your good reps tomorrow)

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

Julie Richardson never made a QF. Heaps of 3r's including the 3r of Us Open 88.

I'm gonna have a squiz at Toleafoa's record. Otherwise, aside from Cordwell, Marina's basically it. She's pretty much a part of NZ history books now!

I'm alittle surprised that Julie never made a Quarterfinal! Isn't she the one who was top 50 in doubles? When she broke into the top 200 back in 2006 she was only the 5th kiwi lady ever to do that, so I guess you could say she was already in the history books

After today she moves back into the top 150 and it could possibly be a career high too (her current career high is 147). I'm not sure if that moves her up into 4th or not.

Yeah Julie got to # 33 in dub's & # 102 in singles....made loads of 3r's for high tier Us events.

Last kiwi to reach the QF's of a wta was....Claudine Toleafoa QF's Wellington Feb 1992 (reached the Sf's the year before!)....so Marina's the 1st to do it in 16 years!

Very impressive - on the 6pm they worded it as 'the first kiwi to reach the quarterfinals of a major tournament in nearly 2 decades' (which isn't even that accurate because we used to have whatshisface back in the 90's who did well at the aussie open)
