Re: The Discovery Thread

I thought that too, but she is listed on the team with Hon and Birrell

Australia is grouped with Czech Republic, Russia, and Argentina

Re: The Discovery Thread

Looks like there will be streaming for the event here (probably just center court though) http://www.tkplus.cz/akce-wjtf-stream.php

We might get to see the girls in action when they play the Czechs (first up is Russia today)

Re: The Discovery Thread

Why didn't Sara play all the lead up events with Priscilla and Kimberly? It'd be awesome to see her and Priscilla play

So there are essentially two major team competitions in junior ITF tennis. There is the world junior finals which is 14/u and then there is junior fed cup which is 16/u.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Australia defeated Argentina 2-0
Kimberly Birrell d Agostina Zamprogno 7-6(5) 6-3
Sara Tomic d Ornella Garavani 6-1 2-6 6-3

Good start, Czechs are the real test though. Australia will have to win second singles and the doubles, because no one will come close to Bouzkova.

Is she any taller than she was 12 months ago??)
It would be interesting to track how these sorts of past predictions or commentary on the various players across the age groups nationally have since eventuated or not.
