Why would you want Gillard. Im waiting for the day when that woman actually answers a question
Onto tennis - I reckon Shannon might break up the showdown between Liv and Izzie.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

^^
Regardless of it being an important list, they are still 3 of the most powerful people in politics

Semi Finals
Olivia ROGOWSKA (VIC) (1) defeated Shannon GOLDS (QLD) (5) 6-2 5-7 6-0
Isabella HOLLAND (QLD) (4) defeated Sophie LETCHER (QLD) (6) 6-2 6-4

We got the final we wanted
WHO DO WE WANT TO WIN?
I'm going for Bella

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Oh and BTW, Calderwood made the doubles final Danimoo, so excuses for her loss to Nancarrow run thin...

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Well done to both on making the final, it was expected of them. Rogowska v Holland final Hopefully it's a closer contest than their last meeting, but I still hope Olivia comes out on top.

By the way, what a perfect time to hold an AMT, giving the girls some match practice ahead of the ITF's since they've been MIA for a while. Hopefully Rogowska and Holland are regularly finalists over the coming few weeks.



GO OLIVIA!

Prediction?

Rogowska def Holland 7-5 6-3

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Ugh Tyra..I do try

Great final! Really looking forward to this one, I expect Olivia to win but with a closer scoreline but probably will win for the same reason as her last one, she will be too solid for Isabella and will work her around the court.

I really hope TA, if they are going for youth in the French Open WC, please please give it to one of these girls. I think the winner of this match will be a great indication to who will get it, but ultimately it'll come down to who succeeds the most at the ITF tournaments.

I think it would only be Moore, Holland, Rogowska, Wejnert in their selection process at this stage. Jess just cause...you know..

She's my favourite of the Aussie juniors. But Izzy is probably my second so it doesn't really matter who wins. Besides, it's only an AMT so the main thing is match practice!

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Jess still has a chance to prove her worth at Fed Cup and at the 2 x 25k's. TA would happily give her the wildcard, too, if she shows form and consistency. But for most people on here now (including me) she has done her dash with international Grand Slam wildcards. And besides it would be good experience for her to play qualifying.

I think Monika can be ruled from the short list too. She has not had any experience of clay in Europe that I can remember and just because she might have a few ITFs up her sleeve her in Queensland, it doesn't really help. She would be better off on the grass with her hard, flat groundstrokes...

A few people might argue for Ferguson to get the wildcard but it seems she has done her dash with TA.
Rodionova won't get it either.

So, yes, this will be a great first step for either Rogowska or Holland towards the wildcard.
I'm tipping Holland for a straight sets win, 7-6, 6-4

True, but it will put the winner in the box position for the FO WC, methinks.
I don't mind who wins either, to be honest. Olivia is such a nice person and deserves all the success she has had, and will have

FINAL: Rogowska def Holland 6-1 6-4




Well done, Olivia. Great form going into these $25K's, and has the headstart (on Holland anyway) on the FO WC. Great week!

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Expected for Olivia Hope she continues in this fashion into the 25ks.

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Surprised that it was so one sided
Olivia
Isabella

Good luck to both at the 25k

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Great win for Olivia, should be full of confidence going into the challengers now. I thought she would win this easily, but I am still kind of surprised by it.

Tough loss of Issy, but she still made the final and had some good wins. Will be interesting to see if she goes into her next tournaments a bit more motivated now.

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Sydney AMT#2

F: Jenny Le d. Ellen Barry 3-6, 6-3, 6-4

It is a good win for Jenny even if Ellen has had a long lay off.

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Ellen Barry went from three hundred and something last year to now being unranked coz she didnt play. Not that anyone cares, I certainly dont.
