Re: The Discovery Thread

Great win for Priscilla. How high will this take her ranking? Well into the top 100 at least.
Good week for Zoe as well. She needs to start playing a few senior ITF's soon, playing juniors can only take you so far.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

I know it is way too soon to know... but are these two girls going to be good in the future?
People heard positive things?

Re: The Discovery Thread

Priscilla isn't playing. Just Naiktha and Sara.

In regards to the Apisah sisters, too early to tell. Violet is a 2000 girl and there are plenty more fancied than her eg. Aiava, Kovacevic, Lin and Ruffels.

Patricia is a 2001 girl and is probably behind Ivanov and Marshall at the moment.

It's too early to tell really, they aren't at the top of their age groups though, which is usually a good sign.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Both Tomic and Bains lose R1 at USO.

Do we know the Jr. Fed Cup team playing in the finals later this month? In the video posted in Sara's thread she talks about playing.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Good team I don't see anyone challenging them except maybe Schmiedlova.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Australia d Slovakia 2-1

Naiktha Bains lt Tereza Mihalikova 2-6 6-4 2-6
Sara Tomic d Katarina Stresnakova 6-1 4-6 6-4
Bains/Hon d Mihalikova/Stresnakova 6-1 6-1

Can they please just play Sara and Priscilla in singles?? It's a good thing Schmiedlova wasn't playing.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Bains shouldn't even be in the team. She played last year and this years regional quallies plus her recent form has been questionable. Someone like Birrell should have been given the third spot.

We should make the SF as long as they put Hon into the number 2 spot.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova
