Re: Sacha Jones

Sacha seems like the only player besides dellacqua who might actually do something with a main draw wildcard. Also, the NZ tennis association must be so pissed that sacha is getting her fort ever decent results after she makes the move to Australia!

Issy definately doesn't deserve a wildcard. She has already had tonnea before and she is all talk. I have met her and seen her play and she is one f the moat self promoting professionals I know.

Re: Sacha Jones

Why I she playing well know? It's great for Australian tennis but it's slightly mystifying. Sacha had 2 set points at 52 but couldn't take them. Now shahar break points.

She's always been a decent player, she was as high as 157 before being sidelined with an injury in mid to late 2010 (I think, or she just started to lose form). Has struggled to get back on track.

Had a couple of good results towards the end of 2011 but thats about it. Good to see her playing well again.

Anyway ANOTHER rain delay. Probably good for Sacha/

Re: Sacha Jones

I've always thought she was a level above our girls of a similar age (Moore, Rogowska, Peers etc), but injuries always set her back. Good to see her showing the tennis world what she's capable of this week.

Re: Sacha Jones

Ended up losing 6-7(7) 4-6. Disapointing after having the 5-2 lead, but tough match with all the rain delays.

Screwed over pretty hardcore by Tennis Australia, so now she is done for the next couple of weeks.

Re: Sacha Jones

Wonder if she signed in anyway? Head back to Melbourne tonight, never know might be a no-show or a last minute withdrawal....

Surely they will give her a run in the doubles with someone...

Re: Sacha Jones

Bad luck on the loss...but I'm glad TA didn't bow to her like some people here seemed to want them to. It would have looked terrible for TA to give her a main draw wildcard - even if she won the tournament. We aren't about buying or bribing players to play for us no matter how well they do and how much they might deserve it. 2012 is the year for Sacha to prove herself as an Aussie, and so far she has made a decent start. 2013 is the year she should be rewarded.
