Re: Sally Peers

What really amazes me is her official height/weight in the ITF site: 1,55cm & 40 kg

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Sally Peers

Sally is a smaller version of Camille Pin. Shes tiny, and has nothing off the ground. The matches I've seen her play, she just waits for her opponents errors. She really needs to beef the serve up to be able to have a meaningful career in the pros. But good luck to her, shes cute as a button!

Re: Sally Peers

She's now playing in the Traralgon 25k, she got a wildcard into the main draw. Will be very interesting to see how she goes

Re: Sally Peers

Go on Sally! Win a few matches here. I am really hoping someone comes through good over these Aust satellites. Monique and Sophie are obviously doing really well but I would like to see a bolter do some damage. Hopefully Sally might be the one.

Re: Sally Peers

Sally has to play Japan's Erika Sema in the first round. This is an interesting matchup, and I think that it could go either way. Hopefully it goes Sally's way

GOOD LUCK

Be great for Sally to score a win here. Sally is certainly match tough.

Re: Sally Peers

Bump!

Sally's been given another wildcard (ahead of Isabella ) into the main draw of Port Pirie this coming week...

Here's hoping she can win a match and jump up the rankings
