Some qualifying results for this tournament are posted on the WTA web site. One of my favs, and the #1 seed in the qualifying singles, Stephanie Foretz, lost her second round match today to Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa. Never heard of Scheepers. Must be tough to travel from France to Australia and lose in the qualies. At least she won her first round match. Scheepers next plays Koulikovskaya (Miss Double Forehand) with the winner getting into the main draw.
Another interesting 3rd round matchup will be between Petrova (8) and Poutchek (4).
