just reading and fond out that 5 aussies played quailies in a challenger and 4 made it through - would have been 5 but 2 played each other
with an incredibly lucky draw no 2 play each other in the final round so we could have a few more players joining Samantha Stosur and maybe Racheal McQuillian in the main draw.
This is great to finally se some good results from those outseide the top 200 and perhaps this is the kick start some need to start or resume promising careers and get some confidence leading into Wimbledon and Us Season
If the opponents were a little tougher I'd be more optimistic
Anyway we'll see how they go in the next round...will be a lot tougher and I'm not expecting anything really...
BTW, dont forget Dubravka Cupac who is playing qualifying in $25K Seoul She should take advantage of a weak draw and do well there. I think Mireille Dittmann is the only other Aussie entered? (main draw). Players like Van Elden, Breadmore and Adamczak should have entered this too.
Yes i know its not really good but besdies Evie taken venus to 3 sets in the 2nd round there haent been much too cheer abuot lately.
Nicole has alot f poitns to defend to . . . . . . ..
Evie will lose some places after only making second round
Same as Wheeler - 1st round though
not a good future ahead but hopefully even if these wins are againgst 10000000 ranked people its still a win!!! and the aussies need some practice and besides when an aussies 350th ranked plays a 40th ranked american we still cheer the same for outr player as the americans
Thats also great to see others playing other tournaments too, wish wheeler, watson and graheme would play too, also wish the Wta would puublish the draws for challengers and futures on there website like the atp tour website does.
COM ON AUSSIE
p.s. the good thing is that our girls did really shit in wimbledon and us open so there are heaps of points there for the offering!!!!!
Well when I looked at the draw I knew it wasn't going to be pretty
Good efforts from Lisa and Bryanne to qualify...but I knew they'd lose in the first round. Disappointed Bryanne let a 4-1 lead slip in the first set! Had she won the set, she would've won the match I feel. Also disappointed in Stosur's effort...I mean, Baltacha is good but I honestly don't see much of a difference between them. Bally just has more grass experience and I guess that was the telling factor.
Would've been good to see Evie and Rachel in the singles.
