Sacha Jones now an Aussie

I see we now have another player in the top 300...

Is she a chance of an AO wildcard??

I would never have seen that one coming! Great for us to have Sacha on board. OUr stocks are getting better and better with the addition of Arina Rodionova as well.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Dokic, Rodionova sisters, Gajdosova, Jones, ...

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Very happy about this one she will be able to play under AUS for all tournaments as well as she has dual citizenship. She has top 50 potential imo so this is a good thing.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Dokic came through the Tennis Australia system entirely.

It shouldn't surprise anyone though, Australia is one of the envied countries in the world. It's not just tennis players flocking here - it's everyone!

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

This kills me.

Thanks Sacha, takes 5k for winning the NZ NATIONALS last week, an Auckland MDWC, and leaves for Australia for an AO MD WC.

Classy.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Got me a feeling she's asked for an AO MD WC.

Make her qualify.

Plenty of other girls who deserve it over her this year.

I agree, it's not very ethical of her at all.

Surely not an AO MD WC.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

She won't get an AO maindraw wildcard, her results lately don't warrant it. She has the ability to go top 100, will see how the tennis australia system actually helps her.

Wonder if she will get a spot in the AIS?
