US Open 2014

A thread for all our US Open series needs, culminating with the big one in a few weeks time

This week marks the official start of the US Open series. A few girls in action, with Sam playing in Stanford and Olivia qualifying in Washington.

Sam opens up against young Japanese qualifier Naomi Osaka, whilst Liv takes on Baku finalist Bojana Jovanovski. Good luck!

Oh, Aussie Ajla also playing Stanford. Silly me. She takes on Petkovic.

Re: US Open 2014

So at the USO we'll have:
MD - Stosur, Dellacqua, Tomljanovic & A WC (pretty sure Rogowska has it in the bag)
QD - Barty, Gajdosova and 2 Rodionovas

I wonder whats the situation with Gavrilova, if shes doing the same as Ajla she could also represent us here but would have to have a PR.

MANDY MINELLA. PRISCILLA HON

CASEY DELLACQUA. JARMILA WOLFE. SAMANTHA STOSUR
QIANG WANG. SHILIN XU. AYUMI MORITA. NAO HIBINO
LESIA TSURENKO. ALIZÉ LIM. NAOMI OSAKA. JULIA GÖRGES.
OLIVIA TJANDRAMULIA. NAIKTHA BAINS. KIMBERLY BIRRELL.
KAROLINA PLISKOVA. KIMIKO DATE-KRUMM. DESTANEE AIAVA

Re: US Open 2014

We should have at least five in the doubles too. More if Mon, Liv and Arina sneak into the MD.

I am not suited to Forum life.

Re: US Open 2014

WC better go to Liv or Jarka. Liv's definitely earned it though!

Re: US Open 2014

I'm waiting for the (deserved) uproar if it goes to Barty again.

I tap my foot in nervous anticipation...

Re: US Open 2014

Btw, I wonder who will get the Montreal WC? I imagine it's a QWC. Olivia? Jarka? They'd be the only candidates, as I don't think anyone else is around...

Re: US Open 2014

I think it was because we gave Wozniak an AO WC?

Sharapova ~ Li ~ Kerber ~ Kvitova ~ Kirilenko ~ Ivanovic ~ Stephens ~ Makarova ~ Safarova ~ Cirstea ~ Goerges ~ Cornet ~ Lisicki ~ Robson ~ Watson ~ Kanepi ~ Keys ~ Tsurenko ~ Wozniak ~ Puig ~ Oudin ~ Petkovic ~ Sevastova ~ Rezai

AND OF COURSE ALL THE AUSSIES!!!

Re: US Open 2014

^ Yes. There was an 'agreement'.

(Not sure what the agreement was. Perhaps Turd pulling someone off behind the shelter sheds...)

Re: US Open 2014

Olivia or Jarka for toughing it out on the challenger circuit past few months and winning 50k titles....not Barty please, if she also won a 50k recently and won a lot of matches doing it the hard way like Jarka and Liv fine, but not playing and expecting a hand out again is not acceptable....she needs to join these girls on the challengers and get her ranking up which is possible with the talent she has if she had the work ethic of the other two

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: US Open 2014

Would not surprise me in the SLIGHTEST if Todd just throws Barty another one, he is completely delusional and will justify it by "she made the 2R last year beating Spanish star Cabeza Candela " and "she is a higher level than Olivia & Jarka" and other nonsense that he's shitted on with in the past. God he's a tit.

Anyway just looking at the USO entry list.... Li Na has just pulled out - making Olivia now the third alternate to MD, one of those ahead of her is Gallovits-Hall who is using PR and has not played since Australian Open 2013 - has not entered anything before USO and last I heard was not even training, just running some clinic for kids or something - so probable that she may not play too. Surely two people will pull out I would prefer this scenario. I think Liv would play more freely without WC next to her name.

If Olivia makes DE and Ash gets it over Jarmila without playing a single lead up event..... god help twitter.

MARIA SHARAPOVA

Olivia ROGOWSKA Arantxa RUS Anett KONTAVEIT Dasha GAVRILOVA
Heather WATSON Olivia TJANDRAMULIA Eugenie BOUCHARD
Nicole GIBBS Jarmila WOLFE Taylor TOWNSEND Naomi BROADY
Madison KEYS Sam STOSUR Priscilla HON
