Re: Sacha Jones

Botto is dangerous, Melander should be easier.

Re: Sacha Jones

So happy to have Sacha playing for us in Aussie! Very impressed with these recent scores and a good chance to get another win there in Bastad. What she needs is a really good tournament and put her name right up there for the selectors in a few weeks. I cant see anyone more deserving at this point for New York.

Re: Sacha Jones

Sacha is in quallies again- 3rd week in a row I think(?).
She is the top seed - hopefully she can qualify with the weak field in Baku.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Re: Sacha Jones

She has Dasha Gavrilova
A tough test but doable IMO
I feel so bad for Sacha
In perhaps the weakest tournament all year the qualifiers get the hardest draws

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Maybe she has dedicated the past few months too developing her game? Training and playing on clay grinding away for hours and fine tuning a few things ahead of the asian events and aussie challengers at the end of the year.....

Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:
Casey Dellacqua Jessica Moore Bojana Bobusic Storm Sanders
as well as Jelena Dokic Sam Stosur Sally Peers Ash Barty Olivia Rogowska Monique Adamczak Sacha Jones Rodionova Sisters Tammi Patterson Vicky Rajicic Azra Hadzic Alison Bai

And all the other aussie girls

Re: Sacha Jones

She plays second seed panova. On hard court I would say Sacha wold be a shot at winning this.

Re: Sacha Jones

Actually Sacha would have a better chance on clay against Panova who hits a hard ball and serve. Credit to Sacha to keep qualifying at these MM.

Yes, give her the US Wildcard, but I expect it to go to Ash.

There's more to life than just being happy.

This will be streamed, so I hope that Sacha can show her Hobart form. It's about time she did some damage on the WTA

Four Slam wildcards in the one year? Is that allowed?

It shouldn't be!
