Knapp's playing well, would've crushed Arina!

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Dolonc had a cakewalk qualies draw, Liv is a reasonable chance!

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Liv will not beat her. I purely base this on the fact that she is defending R2 points, and for an Aussie to defend R2 points, it's like they're practially defending a Slam As a result, she will feel the pressure, fold, and lose. Also, add to the fact that Dolonc, IMO, is a better player with better results and a bigger hitter who will be too strong for her. She is in red hot form and I predict a straight sets win for her.

We're all so quick to assume that Sam is as good as gone vs Chang Gosh, she is that bad at home...but seriously, if she loses

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

I think Sam will get her first win tomorrow. I just sense that she can win a few rounds for some reason....
I think the only other Aussie in with a shot is Sacha Jones. I hope she is over her injuries finally and can give it a red hot crack!
You don't know these days which Casey is going to show up... So can't see her winning sadly.
Liv will go down 6-2 6-1 imo. Time she stepped it up a bit.
Hopefully Yanina is in a shitty mood and Jarka can hit the ball into court. Hmmmmm.
Good experience for Boj and Barty.
I'm missing Jelena Dokic

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Doubles draw:

Gajdosova/Zakopalova v [15]Hsieh/Peng
Bobusic/Moore v. [5]Petrova/Srebotnik
Jankovic/Lucic-Baroni v. Rogowska/Arina Rodionova
[14]Grandin/Uhlirova v. Rajicic/Sanders
Hercog/Schiavone v. Barty/Dellacqua
Adamczak/Bengson v. Black/Nastya Rodionova
[16]Hantuchova/Medina Garrigues v. Stosur/Goerges

Pretty ordinary draws in doubles too

Ash and Casey could win but would face Kirilenko/Raymond in R2

Cara and Nastya are the only team who could do anything here really. And maybe Jarka/Klara.

I am not suited to Forum life.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Yeah some shit draws there.

Re tomorrow - shame Boj didn't get a bigger court. She's 25 an will probably never get another shot at one of the big 2 courts. Playing the 4th seed I thought she'd be in the running...

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

^^ yeah i'm a bit pissy Boj isn't on Hisense since i have tickets for it!! i reckon Margaret Court will be packed by the time i get there with Casey and Matt on there later. also what's with the night session, not only is it Ivanovic but they put the chicks on second match!! if Hewitt goes until 11 or 12 hardly anyone will stay for Ivanovic and Czink...

#4 seed vs an Aussie on MC..... riiiiight. Ridiculous imo. Maybe they were worried about another double bagel.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Im glad Boj (& Matt/Casey) are on MCA....great atmosphere on that court for the aussies...some weird arse scheduling....why wasn't Sacha put on Court 6...when they have Martic/Doi on there

Seriously which Ref did Boj piss off....thats another shocking draw

Cross our fingers and hope for the best come 11am tomorrow!

Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:
Casey Dellacqua Jessica Moore Bojana Bobusic Storm Sanders
as well as Jelena Dokic Sam Stosur Sally Peers Ash Barty Olivia Rogowska Monique Adamczak Sacha Jones Rodionova Sisters Tammi Patterson Vicky Rajicic Azra Hadzic Alison Bai
