So if this is correct, we will have
Stosur, Dellacqua, Tomljanovic and WC in MD
Rogowska, Barty, Gajdosova, Rodionovas in QD
And if Gavrilova uses her PR she could have the same thing and represent AUS at slams as well

Holy crap did not see this coming at all great pick up for us. I guess David Taylor had a lot to do with it.

Re: Tomljanovic to represent AUS?

I'll be as excited to have her as the Rodinova sister's.....not at all. This is just embarrassing.

Re: Tomljanovic to represent AUS?

I think it is very exciting for us. Makes sense now that she received the Sydney wild card in January. I was really annoyed about that at the time.

I can kind of see where you guys who aren't thrilled about it are coming from. I don't think it's a Jarka/Nastya/Daria like situation, with all of them falling in love with AUS and really wanting to play for us... looks to be strictly a money/David Taylor decision. Having said that I really liked her before anyway... so I'm happy

Re: Tomljanovic to represent AUS?

Interesting. Didn't really see this coming. But I remember saying that her Sydney WC probably had something to do with David Taylor, as well as her doubles partnership with Gajdosova.

Anyway, I was indifferent to her before so I'm not going to start waving the flag just because she is playing for Oz. Good luck to her though, she's a very good player.

Re: Tomljanovic to represent AUS?

I feel a bit uneasy about it, particularly if TA has openly courted her to come across. Does anyone know if Tomljanovic has any connection here apart from an Aussie coach

I understand that A-Rod was partnered with an Aussie at the time of coming across, Jarks bascially lived here from 15 years onwards and Sacha Jones atleast had an Aussie passport, but Tomljanovic seems to have no connection. However with so many opportunities Australia brings as a country, not just tennis, this is likely to happen more and more.

What this does is paper over the cracks of TA, who have had some shining lights over the last few years, like Stosur, Molik, Dokic, but failed continuously to produce genuine depth of talent in the women's game. Now we will have Alicia and Todd saying we have another top 100 player and saying how well TA is doing, but still not addressing our lack of depth.

But Im shallow and at the US Open this year, I'll no doubt be classing her as an Aussie

Oh and when can she play Fed Cup? I think there is a fair gap (3 years maybe ) but if it's soon, lets wait for the cat fight when an Aussie doesn't get a spot because of the ring-in.

There's more to life than just being happy.

WTA even confirms it. The last 2 sentences though shows how trashy it can be, just because your coach is Australian you become Australian...

Re: Tomljanovic to represent AUS?

I heard she isn't really on good terms with Croatian media and tennis federation but she could've gone to USA where she actually resides but I'm not complaining, happy to have another top 100 player
