Re: Aussies in WTA events

The Charleston qualy draw is a lot easier than the Ponte Vedra one, considering it's a Premier tourney. I think they can both qualify, but they can also lose to the their young American opponents in the first round too.

Molik is no certainty to get through against Cabeza Candela - that chick had a pretty good week in Marbella.

Poor Olivia. Halep again

Re: Aussies in WTA events

This is a real interesting thread to read back over - thanks for keeping us up to date with all the aussies!

I hope they can all be successful in qualifying (especially Alicia!!!!!)....and it is great to see Monique and Sophie seeded in qualifying for Charleston!!!!

Any idea if Alicia will be playing doubles? I think she needs to play to get as much match practice as possible!

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Hmmm... not very optimistic about those draws but I agree good to see them out having a crack at it. Sophie seems to have a bit of momentum going bu Glatch is a very handy opponent if she has a good day. I'd be shocked to see Monique qualify. Coco is a very good junior and Tatishvili had a great week in Florida. Can't see alicia or liv get through r1 either That Barcelona qualy draw is very very strong

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Wow I hope this can be a great week for the Aussies, paticularly Sophie and Mon. It would be great for them to qualify and win a round!

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Well there is certainly a lot of Aussies starting to play which is good news. I think Sophie is in with a chance once again, don't think Monique will be winning her last round but has a small chance to qualify. Will be interesting to see if Olivia can improve on her previous performance, learn from her mistakes etc. Not sure what to expect from Alicia, obviously her previous opponent is playing well, so maybe this time she won't get another Spanish girl who is ridiculously in form.

Re: Aussies in WTA events

I think the girls could go either way. Halep could be weary after playing six matches at Marbella, so Olivia may take advantage of that. Sophie can certainly qualify based on recent form. Mon can definitely beat Coco and who knows if Alicia's brain will follow her on court or not.

Alicia and Olivia will be on court in a few hours.

Sam and Anastasia are in the MD at Charleston I think. But what about Casey? Is she going to have a crack at these tourneys soon??

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Solid win by Monique. Well done!

Wish I could watch Sophie's game which is up soon but I'm falling asleep here... Good luck Sophie!

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Is there a stream for qualies or something?

And that is terrible from Rogowska. Another young Aussie who is all hype? I'm starting to think that way...

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Molik plays Niculescu tonight in Barcelona and in Charleston Monique plays Tatishvili again (she lost to her last week, 4 and 3).

I'm not sure who Sophie plays in her 2nd round match.

Only two qualie rounds in Charleston so if Soph and Mon win they are straight through. *and* there are two Q v Q matches in the main draw so there's a good chance for a win there. Although Vesnina's also due to play a qualifier so I bet that'll be Sophie

The MD of Charleston is out: Rodionova plays Vania King and the winner plays Petrova. Stosur has a bye in R1 and plays the winner of Fichman and Rybarikova. After that she seeded to play Dushevina in R3, Bartoli in QF and Jankovic again in the SF!

Good luck everyone!

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Monique hopefully can take revenge and qualify...
Sophie playes Lee-Waters, Lee-Waters got a walkover over Yan Zi because Yan/Mattek-Sands are contesting the doubles final tomorrow.

Too bad for Olivia, took a beating once again. Why do Aussies draw the same people they lose to the next week?

Molik has a good chance against Niculescu... Niculescu has been far from impressive all year (I met her at Hobart )

And that brings me to... Rodionova. I hope Vania King can take her out, I love Vania!!!!!

Re: Aussies in WTA events

Exciting week!
Monique lost her final round of qualifying to Tatishvili 7-6 6-2, but she gained entry to the main draw as a lucky loser! She plays Razzano first up.
Ferguson pummeled Lee-Waters 6-0 6-1! She plays Mashona Washington first in main draw who ferguson beat last week 6-4 6-1!
As you mentioned before, Rodionova plays King in the first round and Stosur has a bye and will play either Fichman or Rybarikova in the second round.
In Barcelona Alicia fought through her match against Niculescu and won 4-6 7-6 6-0. She plays Zec Peskiric to qualify for the main draw.
