Some variety in shots, drives etc. Movement (tall) and shot selection a bit iffy at times, inexperience. Looked better than yesterday even though she won. Can play to winning position in games but not quite seal it. Doesn't seem to have a coach around, could be better with someone decent working with her game. Lots more work to do...
Thanks for the report.

I like Jess's game too. But for her to go higher she needs to carry that intensity ALL the time. She won't hit players off the court but she has the tools down the track to grind out wins. But its a tough ask to play like that... requires alot of dedication and training.

Rachel had some wraps 12 months ago, such average results recently. Does she have much power?

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Jess had close one today, still likely to go through. I think you summed up well. Especially compared to players around WTA 100-200 mark that play quals WTA events looking to get into MD, and who have more pace having to play higher risk games and make balls not just grind. For Rachel, have not seen her game for a while. Saw few times in 2011 Circuit (vs Peers, South, Sema etc) and looked like baseline hitter. If had to pick a style- eastern european flat, with side spin. Power thou lacking consistency, sometimes shot selection is "wow" no touch winner, other times "WTF" was that for as wasted point after nice setup? Saw hitting with Barty few times in 2012, going toe to toe with a bit of a crowd gathering, awesome. (did not realise was Rachel till afterwards when niece pointed out). I think I saw her in Barty's box at AO?, and on Barty's web site so hopefully something rubs off there. Not sure what has happened since 2011 debut, a short glimmer at Rocky (QF) and Port Pirie (vs Moore) last year. Looks like no coach, no real tactical program, and doing same old thing sans improvement like the others around same rank level. But has different physique (tall, athletic). And "melange" (mixed, like me!). Has French name but speaks English and Japanese?, I thought Polynesian at first? Others might know more.

Jess and Viki to meet in the final

Good final. Would like Viki to win her first title, so I'll be backing her for the win.

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

It will be interesting. Viki's only played one ITF final before (and lost). Jess has a few titles under her belt, including one last year. Jess also hasn't really been troubled all week so I'd say she's the favourite

So happy with this final! Sucks they will get such little reward points wise but good to get wins under their belts anyway. I'm rooting for Jess but will be happy either way!

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Viki will dictate the rallies, but she needs to find a way to finish the points off against Jess who will remain consistent and try and get everything back. Hopefully Viki gets her first title.

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Good experience for both heading into next one - http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...tid=1100028590

Appears Bundy still on there, but shortened draws? A pity for the second tier or 14-16s wanting to have a go.

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Abbie Myers is the only Aussie of note that's pulled out of Ipswich. The rest are pretty much all there, which is noice. But only 4 in the MD direct thus far. A few could squeeze in if lower priorities drop out.

Peers coming back to Oz for these.
