Re: Naiktha Bains

I think the AIS will be good for them.
They should both be quality players like Stosur/Dokic rather than Moore/Wejnert.
I think the AIS helps those with determination to succeed
I'm sure if it wasn't working out, Bains' father would take her out of the program.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Yeah Barty was in the program last year. Holland and Peers graduated, I'm assuming Woolcock got kicked out.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Great effort in her professional debut! Would be nice for her to get a win in the maindraw but it's already been a good tournament.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Lesley has been playing very well so will be a tough one, but to beat a top 500 player and qualify at 14 is a very promising sign.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Nothing to be disappointed about really. Kerkhove is six years older and Top 500. She certainly made a great debut.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Last month Naiktha played three G1s in Asia, reached the second round in two of them and lost first round in the other. A bit disappointing but these are big events with girls up to 18 years old! She's currently ranked #195 on the ITF junior rankings.
