Re: Rio 2016 Olympics!

I think Peers and Stosur may play mixed as they teamed together at Wimbledon.

Re: Rio 2016 Olympics!

And Stosur has a difficult one against Ostapenko. If she gets through that, then either Doi or Voskoboeva and after that, probably Kerber.


Might be still a little wait for our first singles medal at the Olympics. Doubles, we have two bronze medals (Turnbull/Smylie 1988 & Provis/McQuillan 1992) and both our teams a small chance to equal that depending on the draw I suppose.

There's more to life than just being happy.

OMG, how could I forget Alicia!!!!! I think that was time when the Olympics attracted ranking points and it helped her reach the top 10


Rodi's got the 2nd worse draw, the absolute worse would be the Williams sisters. Hopefully Dasha and Sam can exploit Bacinsky out there.

^ and then winning Sydney and reaching the AO quarter finals(where she lost to a wilting Davenport ��)

Hopefully Dasha can give some cheek against Serena.
