Re: The Discovery Thread

Destanee obviously playing way above her age level, she could have played 12s But a good effort from Kimberly...she's certainly been a quiet achiever behind Tomic and Hon as far as 98' girls go.

Ruffels looks to be talented too, obviously with some good tennis heritage in her family.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Nice win for Birrell, I thought the final would be much closer. We seem to have some very good depth in our 96 to 2000 age bracket. The next few years should be very interesting.

Re: The Discovery Thread

ITF G5 Semis-
Birrell d. Wagland 6-1 6-1
Boyanov d. Andrinopoulos 6-4 6-4

Kimberly is on fire lately. Good young final here. Boyanov having a good year on the junior circuit too.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Yeah exactly, except the girls in Thailand really need to win one more match to actually make it count though. No points for roundof 32 in G2s unfortunately.

Re: The Discovery Thread

A little suprised by the fact Cabrera is in Thailand and not Japan given she is probably better than the girls that are??

Anyway great to see all of them winning...

Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:
Casey Dellacqua Jessica Moore Bojana Bobusic Storm Sanders
as well as Jelena Dokic Sam Stosur Sally Peers Ash Barty Olivia Rogowska Monique Adamczak Sacha Jones Rodionova Sisters Tammi Patterson Vicky Rajicic Azra Hadzic Alison Bai

And all the other aussie girls

Re: The Discovery Thread

She would have gotten a seeding at the GA too. Perhaps she didn't realise it'd be so weak in Japan.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Some nice wins. Particularly nice to see Bains gaining some form again (whatever has changed is working!), and for Tjandramulia (often overlooked). Also nice to see Ruhrig having a go, from memory likes to hit the ball and a bit older, probably unrefined raw talent overlooked along the way like Tredoux and other like athletes. Saw them battle it out in a great 3 setter match last year, much more entertaining than the pushers or grinders. What they could do or be with the proper support to develop their games. Yep Cabrera should have played the GA.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Japan GA - R2

(12)De Vroom def. (WC)Priscilla Hon 2-6 6-0 6-2
Naiktha Bains def. Ottomano 6-1 4-6 6-3
Hayashi def. (10)Geogiana Ruhrig 6-3 4-6 6-3
(11)Okuno def. Isabelle Wallace 6-3 2-6 6-1
Zoe Hives def. Dart 1-6 7-6(3) 6-2 *Dart has a world ranking of 929
Miyazaki def. Danielle Wagland 5-7 6-4 6-3

Mixed results for the girls today, nice wins for Zoe and Naiktha and solid efforts from the rest. Would have been nice to see Wallace, Wagland or Ruhrig scrape out a win. Good effort for Hon to grab a set off De Vroom.

Thailand G2 - R2

(3)Lizette Cabrera def. Skidanova 6-2 6-1
Olivia Tjandramulia def. (7)Jeong 6-2 6-2
(15)Sara Tomic def. Ikeda 6-0 6-1

Another solid day for the girls in Thailand, very nice win for Olivia in particular.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Didn'texpect Wallace or Hon to win, but expected more from Ruhrig. Danielle had to finish off her first match in the same day so may have been tired.

Great win for Olivia, Jeong has had a fair bit of sucess on the junior tour...so the scoreline is especially surprising!

Re: The Discovery Thread

Talk about 3 setters! Some nice wins, good to see Tjandramulia on a bit of a roll, Bains coming back into form. Pity Ruhrig couldn't get through which always helps to get noticed. Hon and Wallace typically are confidence players.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Japan GA - R3

(3)Mertens def. Naiktha Bains 6-2 4-6 6-1
(8)Liebens def. Zoe Hives 2-6 6-4 6-2

Respectable results for both girls and a good week overall.

Thailand G2 - R3

(3)Lizette Cabrera def. (14)Kobayashi 1-6 6-3 7-5
Olivia Tjandramulia def. Momkoonthod 7-5 6-1
(15)Sara Tomic def. (2)Bhosale 7-5 3-6 6-4 *Bhosale has a WTA ranking of 706

Great win for Sara, probably one of the best of her career so far.
