This tournament seems pretty inconsequential with Jones being in the tournament. I imagine she'll get a main draw wildcard anyway, will the runner up be given a qualifying wildcard (If Sacha wins AND gets an md wildcard) ?
Yeah, Sacha's already got a MD WC. While Fanning is already guaranteed a qualifying WC. Baker wont accept one as she does no longer live in NZ and won't be here for the tournament. Stewart is the only contender.
Leanne's on fire. I can't wait to see how she does against Sacha tomorrow. (Providing sacha wins, which she will).
Considering Fanning is probably our most promising junior, this is really shocking. And pretty sad. But Leanne's been running marathons in the US, so she must be pretty fit. Funny as during her career, fitness was never her strongest point.
