Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Hobart dubs draw lol:

(1)Medina Garrigues/Shvedova v BYE
(4)Dekmeijere/Moulton-Levy v Begu/Halep
Soler-Espinosa/Suarez Navarro v Babos/Minella
Barty/Bobusic v Bengson/Moore
(wc)Hibberd/Smith v (3)Bratchikova/husarova
Muguruza/Torro-Flor v (wc)Dobson/Wlodarczak
Cornet/Klepac v (2)Gajdosova/Zakopalova

Weak teams in draw! Good for aussies I guess, but who the hell are Smith and Dobson.
Remember Hibberd, is a tassie fav!
Also hope Moore/ banger win as need confidence more

FAV PLAYERS-Aravane Rezai, Elena Dementieva and Karolina Sprem + MOST (lol) OF THE AUSSIES!!! : Jess Moore, Olivia Rogowska, Stosur, Molik + more

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Lol that's funny.

I remember Hibberd. She's playing college tennis in the US now, so good for her. No idea who Dobson or Smith are??
But a WC for Karo never thought I'd see the day!

Just saw that Arina is currently 4th alternate for AO quals. Hope she gets in and a WC is free for someone else. Also I wonder if Nastya will front up and play qualies?

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Kinda hope Jess doesn't progress too far in doubles, don't want to have another situation like last year where she missed out on AO quallies so that she could get thrashed in a R2 doubles match the next day. Perhapse thats why players like Peers, Rajicic and Patterson didn't enter doubles.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

Pavlyuchenkova withdrew so Ash Barty now plays Mona Barthel.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Oh god I haven't seen Dobson play for years but unless she's improved massively that match is going to be road kill even with a semi decent player in wlodarczak on the team... I hope she still does her trademark fist pumps and come ons like she did in under 14 tournaments... Not that shell have many chances to do them. Smith is better but still she's from Tasmania.. And no one from Tasmania is good at this level of event

Will be interesting if can be competitive! The teams they drew not stars, but these girls barely play itfs at good level! Best of luck but

Liv Rogowska playing well but seems incapable of stringing together enough of her good points. Her good points which are world class imo. Hope can pull out a win, will do her confidence wonders..

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Abbie & Storm lost 10-4 in the super TB. Great effort. So close to a pretty decent paycheck & handy ranking points though!

Ash & Bojana already 4-0 up against Jess Moore and Bengson
