The end-of-year Aussie ITFs aren't far off now, starting in Alice Springs on Sep 5.
The entry list is out
and although it'll change a bit before the tournament starts, some interesting things to note:
Jess Moore and Marija Mirkovic are early withdrawals. No sign of Sophie Letcher
Monika Wejnert and Jade Hopper are still nowhere to be seen. And no Shannon Golds either
Aussie girls that are on the list include Sally Peers, Casey, Liv, Tammi P, Bojana, Izzy, Sophie F, Dani D, Monique plus lots of scrubs.
No Ashleigh Barty but my fave 2 NT players are on the list: Kassandra Dunser (who's been injured for a lot of this year) and Tarlina Tipungwuti, who's now in the top 100 in Australia after being unranked at the start of the year and is being coached by Alun Jones
