Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Hon and Patterson finished so i guess now there's no more matches being played. it was 3-6 7-6(5) 6-4 to Patterson, but Hon was up 3-0 in the tiebreak and 4-1 in the last set...

Priscilla So close...

Still so young. Many good years ahead.

Tammi will never have a better opportunity to make the AO MD now

I guess Tammi has given herself a QWC now? Hon breakout star of the December showdown

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Patterson certainly in line for a QWC now, but hey, she could still win this thing.

As for Hon, despite her great performances here, I'd still hold off in giving her a QWC. Perhaps give her one to Brisbane as a reward, and let her wait an extra year before experiencing a Slam.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Good point. She's a QLDer too so Brisbane QWC might be the way to go.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

But qualies in Brisbane would be a tougher draw than AO qualies

Well done to Tammi. So unexpected that her and Boj are in the SF. They both had great 2011s but ordinary 2012s. This tourney is like a flashback to 2011

Me too. I think Arina will be the one to beat though.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

The draw in Brisbane may be tougher, but it's not a Slam and nothing compares to playing in a Slam. Gives her a taste of the WTA though.

I don't think 14 year olds should be in Slam draws, but that's just me.

No because most of the players ranked 50-100 are already playing Auckland and Shenzhen.

As of Hon let her go one more year. No need to rush her

If Monique makes the final, could she get a WC?
