Poor Monique. I really hope she can win tomorrow. But her record doesn't fill me with confidence:
I checked her stats and she has only ever won 1 match in AO qualifying and that was in...1999(!). She was just 15 years old. Since then she has lost in the 1st round 8 times. That's a 1-9 record in qualies and a 1-3 record in the main draw. Melbourne hasn't been good to her, has it?
Yes, not a happy hunting ground for Mon. But she'll no doubt have us getting out hopes up when she takes the first set.
Though I would love in particular for her and Sally to get wins. They both need a kick start - and the 50pts will come in very handy.
Yes, some good chances here for the Aussies and will be a great day to watch with 11 playing. Im chucking a sickie and getting down there to watch. Keen to see those that I havent seen live: Azra, Abbie and Priscilla.
