Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Viki into the final Hopefully she can beat Sema senior, but has a pretty bad record against her.

The top 3 '94 girls doing awesome this year! Really stepping up, and it's about time too. All 3 have now been in $25K finals this year, and after this event will all be ranked between 300-325. That's awesome that they are all pushing each other to do well It's now time that they started to push for MD wildcards into the AO, and hopefully by the end of the year they will be in a position to do so!

As for Liv, you can tell that was a tough match and loss. Pretty disappointed in her form so far this year. I don't think we will see her pushing for the top 100 anytime soon to be honest. Maintaining top 200 should be the goal actually

Also, Sacha doesn't seem to be the same player post wrist injury. Hope she can sort it out too.

Still aiming for the top 100

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Great effort by Viki, the way Storm was playing it seemed that she had leap-frogged her a bit, but she ground out this win.

The big question is: whats next for Storm, Viki and Azra? (Apart from Viki beating Sema that is :-))

There's more to life than just being happy.

Thanks No surprise that Storm is heading o/s, but it will be interesting to see what Viki does, now that she has taken two ITF's early on.

Showed some class at the AO an Hobart so glad she's continuing this good form straight after.

BENDIGO will host two $50,000 International Tennis Federation tournaments for women this October.

The two new-look tournaments replace the men's and women's William Loud Bendigo International.

This year's tournaments start on October 21 and October 28 and are expected to attract world-class players.

“We’re excited by the opportunity to boost the women’s schedule and host two $50,000 ITF events in Bendigo. Tennis Australia has worked hard with our Pro Tour venues to create the highest level tour possible,” Tennis Australia's Jason Simmons said.

“The location, facility and dedicated staff and volunteers make this the ideal venue for these top tier tennis events and will kick start the summer of tennis for professional players, particularly in the Asia Pacific region.”

Bendigo mayor Cr Lisa Ruffell said these international tournaments would become an important feature on the city’s calendar.

“Greater Bendigo has become a sought-after destination for important sporting and major events,” Ruffell said.

“Major events of this type are very important for our local economy. They put our city on the map and provide local residents with an opportunity to see top class events in their own city, increasing our region’s liveability.”

The last time the Australian Pro Tour held a women’s $50,000 ITF tournament was in Bendigo in 2005.

This is pretty awesome!

Yeah it is cool. I like that we now have a mix of $50Ks, $25Ks and $10Ks.

Btw Canberra is about to start redeveloping its big tennis centre where they used to host the WTA event so I reckon it'll want to start hosting ITFs sometime after 2014.

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

Bendigo is a big city, and not too far from Melbourne. If they were to put a $50K anywhere, they've chosen well

Yep, train, bus, car... it's a good choice. They are also a sporting town, so Im pleased they have a tennis presence. Two tournies also makes it worthwhile too.

Re: Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

A few changes to the end of year challengers.

As well as the two Bendigo 50k's. Cairns has been downgraded to a 15k and .... there's a new 15k in Toowoomba where I live so i'll be checking out all the action there for sure

No sign of Esperance, Rockhampton, Port Pirie, Marg River or Traralgon im hoping some of them get added to the calender soon.
