Re: The Discovery Thread

Linda she qualified for a G2 in China the week before last and took a set off a top 50 junior so this was pretty much the toughest R1 match for any of the seeds but Lizette still should have won. Really want to see Huang reach the QF now, she deserves it.

This tournament is pretty much what I expect the 18/U champs to look like at the end of the year.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

Re: The Discovery Thread

Going exactly to script for every section except the last 1/8 but the QF is where it will get interesting. Tomic, Bains, Hon and Inglis will be heavy faves in their matches but hopefully we see an upset or two.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

Re: The Discovery Thread

Zoe and Kim completely unexpected. Good efforts from Olivia and Linda as well. Any of the remaining 4 could take it out now. No idea how they are supposed to pick our junior fed cup team from this bunch, there are about 5 or 6 options.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

Re: The Discovery Thread

Naiktha has stagnated badly. It'll be interesting to see if she even gets into the Fed Cup team. Sara and Priscilla are a lock I'd say. Third spot is up for grabs amongst Kim and Naiktha. I wouldn't give it to Maddi unless she does something special here.

Re: The Discovery Thread

I have a feeling Zoe might win this, she's a little bit older than everyone else here and she's always had a number over the likes of Tomic and Hon. But we'll see, I wonder if she's been injured or just hasn't been playing tournies.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Good luck Priscilla I like Zoe too, she's a good little player.

As already said she is quite a bit older than most of the girls here so it's no surprise to see her in the final. Priscilla will beat her though
