Re: The Discovery Thread - Australia into QF of Junior Fed Cup Qualifying
Well that was a rather interesting doubles match...
Rajicic and Nancarrow broke early and maintained their lead to take the first set 6-4.
In the second set they served for the rubber at 5-3 and held 3 match points. South Korea broke them to get back to 5-4 and then won the next 3 games to take the second set 7-5. One may have expected the Aussies to fold like a deck of cards after being so close BUT, they stormed to a 5-0 lead and eventually closed it out 6-4 5-7 6-1
Australia is into the semi finals (where we will have to play the winner of Indonesia and Thailand) and we have secured a place in the World Final
Re: The Discovery Thread - Australia qualifies for Junior Fed Cup World Finals!!
I just looked up Mutaguchi's ITF profile and she has a pretty impressive track record. She might be ranked lower than Grace Sari Ysidora (who Vicky beat yesterday) 69 to 48, but she has beaten two pretty darn good juniors in Alexandra Krunic (Serbian 16 y.o who has won a 10k and is ranked 33 in the junior ranks) 7-6 6-1 and Veronica Cepede Royg from Paraguay. Cepede Royg is ranked No.15 on the junior ranks and has beaten a top 250 in Fed Cup.
Was hoping the score would be closer...but still, we are into the final with a young team
