AO Qualifying - Aussie Girls

The qualifying draw is out and we have some interesting match-ups!

First time I can remember that we dont have any players in direct

Adriana Szili v Daniela Dominikovic

For the second year in a row we have two Aussie girls facing eachother...so a nice rankings boost for either of them I think this is a toss up! Daniela has more power and if she gets her head right she can win this....but Adriana is very consistent from the back and has the game to frustrate Dani. Hope it's a good one.

Lauren Breadmore v Jessica Kirkland

This is a bad draw for Lauren as Jessica is a pretty big young talent from the US. Hopefully Lauren's good record here will continue, but it's not looking likely...

Jaslyn Hewitt v Dominika Nociarova

Maybe the best draw of the Aussies! I don't know much about this Nociarova chick, but I honestly think Jaslyn can make the 3rd round here and possibly even qualify if she plays to her best. The winner will face Els Callens (in shit form) or Elena Baltacha in the next round. Tough,. but winnable matches...in fact a winnable section if she plays her cards right.

Dubravka Cupac v Zsofia Gubasci

Totally unpredictable match as both seem to be hot and cold players. Don't know what game Dubz is gonna bring tomorrow, but Zsofia is certainly a beatable opponent.

Olivia Lukaszewicz v Jarmila Gajdosova

Jarmila seems to have fallen off the radar lately, so can Olivia (with a lot of solid summer training behind her), score an upset? Not likely, but here's hoping she can be competitive!

Shayna McDowell v Lourdes Dominguez Lino

Shayna can do well in this match I feel! Especially on this surface, with high bouncing balls against the tiny Lourdes. On clay she'd get thrashed, but if she carries over the confidence from almost beating Antonella last week, I can't see why she can't do well in this match! The occassion might be too big for her, and a win is a big ask...but this is one of the kinder draws she could've asked for.


What do you guys think? Thoughts? Comments?

Im going to brave the heat and go tomorrow. With so few Aussies playing (than usual) I may be able to see all matchs.

Dani should have too much off the ground for Szili. Nice if Szili could repay the faith TA has in her however!

Will be a big effort for Jaslyn to win. Hopefully some dissapointment of missing a w/c will spur her on.

Shayna has a hope, the others I can't see getting thru.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Yeah I'll be in attendance as well, wilting in the midday sun no doubt.

I'll be heading straight to court 6 to watch Dani and Adriana, which is a good position because I'm curious to see Sesil K play, nearby on court 4.

Im keen to get a look at McDowell too. If I feel like falling asleep I'll have a look at Breadmore

So, a nanna nap on court 11 then?

Oh hush now, Lauren needs all the support she can get

I think Jaslyn is playing on the far side (er, MCG end I guess) first up...so I might stop over there first to see how she is playing as that is where the entrance is, and then make the pilgrimmage to the civilized part of Melbourne Park.

Daniela will beat Adriana in 2
Kirkland will beat Breadmore, although one of the sets will likely be pretty competitive
Hewitt will beat Nociarova in 3
Gubasci will beat Cupac in two fairly routine sets
Lukascewicz won't get more than two games against Gadjosova
Mcdowell will beat Dominiguez Lino in two sets. Dominiguez only played clay court events throughout all of last year. She hasn't played a match on hard courts since February '03.

Absolutely not. Lourdes will pass through the main draw. She's a great player!

I'm not denying that, but you can't just show up having not played on a hard court for two years and expect to win matches. Even though Shayna doesn't have a ranking, she took Serra-Zanetti to three sets, which shows she's at least playing like a top 200 player at the moment. On a clay court Shayna would get killed, but on a hard court with the crowd completely behind her, I think she'll pull it off.
