Re: General Aussie Tennis News

If players perform as they should in 2010 think of how many we should have in the top 100 by the end of 2010

Sam
Jelena
Nastya
Jarka
Casey
Alicia
Olivia

When was the last time we had the potential to have 7 Aussie women in the top 100? Also if Mon and Sophie could just stay injury free and get a lucky draw or 2 could they finally crack the top 100? What if Jess could have a comeback, Shannon could continue improving and Monika could make a fantastic start to her first year full time on the circuit?

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

I can't even remember there ever being 4 TOP 100 Australians. Ever.

The most in the past I remember at once is Pratt, Dominikovic and McQuillan. Now the potential to have 7!?

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

And the potential of the minimum 7 we hope to have probably outweighs what we had in the past. Maybe after all these years of us being the underdogs we are going to have our moment in the sun.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

I remember Molik, Pratt, McQuillan and Dominikovic were top 100 at the same time in ooh about 01/02? At the same time there were some top 200 back ups in the form of Ellwood (who was top 100 once before), Stewart, Watson, Wheeler, Grahame, Dittmann but none of those players were ever threats to really go further. Those were the days when we had solid representation in Slam qualies at least.

Now it's definitely the healthiest it's looked in ages. Plus, our 200-400 stocks are looking decent too. Was getting a bit lean for a while there.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

I don't think Dellacqua and Molik were in at the same time. They definately weren't all together simultaneously.

Not the most healthiest top 100 list though - Sam was out of action at the end of 2007, Nicole retired a few months after, Leesh was struggling from her illness and Casey had just entered the top 100 right at the end.

Hopefully this increase in numbers, breeds competition and better results.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Post-AO Rankings are out, before the Aussie summer I would have hoped for much better rankings than this. Nothing really to be happy about except Sam up to 11 and Dellacqua makes a huge jump up. There are numerous negatives including Dokic, Moore and Mirkovic's plummet, however the biggest negative is no youngsters really broke through.

Heres our players in the top 500:

11 Stosur
96 Dokic
97 Rodionova
125 Groth
142 Adamczak
143 Rogowska
146 Ferguson
170 Molik
227 Golds
276 Dellacqua
299 Moore
302 Peers
335 Holland
355 Konta
384 Wejnert
405 Mirkovic
435 Bobuscic
462 Hubacek

Stosur | Dellacqua | Gajdosova | Tomljanovic | Gavrilova | Rodionova | Barty

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Nothing we couldn't see coming, though. It's not like anyone expected Dokic or Mirkovic to defend the bulk of their points.
