To answer some of your questions rusty...
I dont think Evie will win a title unfortunately...she still has to reach her first ever tour level QF to even entertain the thought.
I cant see her winning a match in Sydney, but that is fair enough considering how tough the field is. She has had a good solid 2 years of international experience against top players (i dont really count her challenger days before 2001) so she is more than capable of giving them a good match. I hope she brings her A game, but her 63 62 loss to Kurhajcova and your own bleak assessment of her Dalby run, dont bode to well
If she gets a good draw in Melbourne I can definately see her getting to the 3rd round again. Hopefully higher but I doubt it...anyway, Id love to see it happen. She just needs a good win to bring that confidence back!
Have no idea who her coach is, but she is no longer working with Chris Kachel who she was with the first half of 2002...she definately needs a one to one coach though.
Good luck to Evie!!! If she gets a few wins under her belt by the time the summer circuot is over, then she can breathe easier for a few months....if not, Im not looking forward to the rest of the year.
