Re: Naiktha Bains

Great experience, and I hope she enjoys it.

Nice to see an Aussie junior playing these big US junior events. Due to the December timing we never get our girls in these events, so it's good to have a representative as it is very rare. Naiktha played these age events last year too from memory. Good luck against the 18s girls this year!

Re: Naiktha Bains

Yeah she played 14s last year and lost in the SFs after having a match point. I watched the livestream and some of the match is up on YouTube.

18s will obviously be far tougher, but let's see how she goes.

Well if she was on Happy Days, then no doubt she would've been named Peggy Sue!

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: Naiktha Bains

2R: (16)Barbara Haas (AUT) df. (WC)Naiktha Bains (AUS) 6-3 6-1

No shame, Haas is a good player.

I'm surprised Naiktha isn't playing Orange Bowl next week.

Edit: Of course, I forgot she's playing in the Australian Open WC Playoff. She's probably heading back to Australia to prepare for it.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Naiktha Bains is on court in R1 of the Aus Open WC playoff. She's playing Jess Moore and the livestream is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=7tY1QsnjDSE

Re: Naiktha Bains

Naiktha lost 61 64, but she played a good match That second set she did really well, her forehand is simply amazing and really powerfull for her age Her backhand looked better, she needs to work on her serve though and her overall consistence. Mentally she was strong saving SP and specially 2 MPs with amazing points

Nice effort speciaclly on the 2nd

Re: Naiktha Bains

Great to hear that Naiktha played well I didn't manage to watch it but hopefully they'll put the match up on YouTube, they did that for all the streamed matches last year.

Btw Haas ended up reaching the final of Eddie Herr so that really was a tough draw.

Re: Naiktha Bains

She did well especially in the second. Jess was just too on point today. She has definitely got the potential.
