Certainly been keeping a close eye on her progress, hope she keeps on the improve.

****** Daria Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******

I voted for fellow west aussie Jess Moore, tyra probably next in line after that!

Tyra had some good results lately! Well done!

Hope her and Jess re unite in dubz and finish the year both ranked in the junior top 30 or 40!

Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:

No not delusional TS Olivia has some potential no doubt, she did nearly crack top 500 a year or 2 back, which is good effort but she didn't keep going, for whatever reason??

ATM, i'd reckon Tyra would beat her!

Jessica Moore, but only just ahead of Tyra Calderwood. Incidentally, is Tyra Calderwood the younger sister of Bree Calderwood who held a world ranking 3 or 4 years ago?

I think Tyra and Bree are sisters

I picked Holland just to give her a vote!

Haven't seen any of them play but Jess Moore's results have been pretty impressive. Not a bad bunch of names there.

Quite often the talent is there, its the ability to cope with the extended overseas travel and homesickness etc.... Great that Tyra, Jess are constantly overseas to cope with being away early in their careers. Pity we aren't seeing Shayna anywhere

There's more to life than just being happy.

Tyra is set to compete in next weeks Oceania Closed in Fiji where she is the numober 2 seed. Hopefully she makes it past the QF to improve her ITF Junior Ranking...

She is then scheduled to play at the US Open Junior Champs where she is number five entrant in quallies.

Good luck and play well

keep votes for australias top junior coming!!!!

PS Has Olivia Lukaszewicz retired? she hasn't played since january, hasnt entered in the 10k in Gladstone, and theres a rumor that she has retired. Please tell me its not true!!!!!

because jess didn't defend her points from last years oceania closed (in which she made semis in singles and won the dubz). tyra made qf last year and this year was runner up, meaning she'll leap frog jess

congrats tyra!!
