Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Redemption for them both by coming thru with the win. Glad to see they have both managed to pocket a few more bucks from this week.

Shame that Sally will likely miss it by only 1-2 spots....

Agreed re the top 6, they have 8 wildcard spots don't they?? So im thinking Patterson/Myers and Rajicic/Sanders will be joining them... would be great if Ash/Casey got in direct and then Karo/Azra could also get a crack...


Great win by Jarka today, hopefully she can keep it going here, same with Boj/Ash

Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Shaping up to be a half-decent January so far. Despite our top player losing R1 twice, we've had a doubles title, 3 MD wins thanks to Jarka (now a QF), an unexpected qualifier, and more than a handful of Aussie wins over higher-ranked players and now Boj/Ash making a doubles SF. Could be better, but could be a lot worse too.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

And Klara/Jarka may verse Boj/Ash so that would mean another Aussie into a doubles final

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Re the press conference - gosh Barty is such a likeable young girl. So well spoken too.

I always look forward to some of the random Aussie combos come Oz Open time. Hadzic & Wlodarczak is an interesting one A shame Ash and Boj aren't playing together in Melbourne. I thought Casey would've picked a higher ranked international player?

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

No Tyra in the doubles entry list She's one of our better young doubles players.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Qualifying draw is out. All WC's pretty much as expected. Here are the match ups

Priscilla Hon v Valeria Solovieva
19-Anastasia Rodionova v Nastassja Burnett
Storm Sanders v Yulia Beygelzimer
Abbie Myers v 5-Yung-Jan Chan
Monique Adamczak v 20-Dinah Pfizenmaier
Jessica Moore v 8-Karin Knapp
Viktorija Rajici v 16-Claire Feuerstein
Arina Rodionova v Maria Irigoyen
Tammi Patterson v Zuzana Ondraskova
Sally Peers v Cristina Mitu
Azra Hadzic v 15-Michelle Larcher De Brito

11 players in qualies is awesome! A shame Sally couldn't sneak in, but that's OK. Some OK match ups there, but some very tough ones. Jess and Abbie got horror draws in particular. Tammi can count her lucky stars - if she loses that one, she may as well retire.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Yes I think those 3 can win. Considering how poorly our girls usually perform in qualies, I'd certainly be happy with 3 wins...
