US Open

So WC play off is next week in Florida. From this article on Barty

So, next stop the IMG Academy in Bradenton, which from next Saturday will host Tennis Australia's play-off for the reciprocal wildcard it exchanges annually with the US Open.

Re: US Open

Interesting, wonder who we will expect.

Barty, Rogowska, Cabrera, Bai, Wolfe and Arina should be confirmed I think. Wonder if any of the other girls will make the trip to Florida just for a play-off...

I think Perez could be back in the States now. Maybe they'll give the last spot to a college girl like Woolcock or someone cause I don't see anyone else coming all the way from Oz to play one or two matches.

Sanders unlikely as she said she will be preparing for the AU ITF circuit.

I feel like TA is probably just going to pick 4 though and omit others, like at FO. Do we have a QWC as well?

Re: US Open

I'm thinking it will be 4 players. Arina, Ash and Jarka if fit and after that it is a bit of a raffle. I would love to see Cabrera get one just by recent form, but they'll probably slide down the rankings and see who's available to avoid any controversy.


I don't think there is a quallie w/c available unless a deal is being cooked up. Without checking I don't think we 'owe' the US one.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Don't know about QWC but may be do they have one for not using last year MDWC like at the French Open ?

Re: US Open

Looks like Lizette did not get a spot as she's on her way home now.

This would mean that it's a 4 player playoff like the RG. Also like the RG one, we will probably get 0 coverage and will have to rely on Nicole Pratt again on twitter.

Guessing they are just going to go down the rankings again like the RG, meaning that the playoff will probably be with Arina, Barty, Bai and Wolfe. Unless one of Sanders, Birrell, Hon or Moore are making the trip (I doubt it). Looks like Rogowska will probably be a reserve too.

Re: US Open

Curious as to why they keep these play offs such a secret?

Embarrassed? Can't be stuffed? Probably think no one cares? Not important enough? No men involved?

Probably all of the above.

Probably to please their dads.

Where is Alison as well? I'm sure if they told her she had a spot she would have stuck around for another week.

Re: US Open

WTF.

Rogowska and Cabrera, the only ones who actually played and did well in the North American ITFs don't get a shot

Re: US Open

I am pleased to see Ellen Perez there in the draw. Personally I would have liked to have seen Olivia R, Lizette, Alison and Jessica in this draw. Perhaps Olivia has pissed off TA again...they definitely have a rocky relationship.
