Re: The Discovery Thread

Australia in the final over Japan

Zoe Hives [AUS] d Nozomi Ohya [JPN] 6-2 7-6(2)
Naiktha Bains [AUS] d Mami Adachi [JPN] 6-4 7-5

They have a rematch with China in the final. They are going to have to leave Wallace out if they want to win, I don't see anyone beating Ziyue Sun but maybe they could pip it in the doubles with a Hives/Bains combination.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Taking a set off Ziyue Sun is pretty good, she nearly beat Sacha Jones last year.

Re: The Discovery Thread

NZ must have a pretty good junior in Paige Hourigan then. She pushed Sun to 9-7 in the third.

Re: The Discovery Thread

This was the obvious 14U team. It looks like a team that could win Asia (and do well at worlds) but it's hard to tell at this level, a lot of the players they are going up against are untested so you never know if there is a hidden gem in a team, I guess we'll find out. Either way, good first up win over Uzbekistan, Sara and Kim won their singles...I wonder if Priscila is still a little injured or if she is being rested and Kim getting her shot because Sara and Priscila are the obvious choices for singles.

Re: The Discovery Thread

The girls qualified for the finals, beating Japan 2-0. Plays India for a spot in the final, would be a good bonus for a good weeks work
