Ok, for those of you who are in the know, who of the Aussie girls, besides Alicia, has made any significant improvement to their ranking this year?

It's a bit disappointing to think that come the AO next year, the only two who will direct enter on their rankings will be Alicia and Nicole. I was hoping that Sam and Evie would both break top 100 this year, allowing more of the Aus gals to have a chance at the wildcards.

Here is a start!

35 (35) Alicia Molik (Great year would have been top 30 without injuries up from 100 at start of year)

53 (53) Nicole Pratt (Erratic year, some great tournaments, a slump on all surfaces except hardcourt, still a reasonable year for Nicole)

130 (124) Evie Dominikovic (Apart from Aust Open and French Open her year was crap, had brief spell in top 100, ranking has dropped now from 110)

153 (149) Samantha Stosur (Started year in low 200's, after Aust Open though was in 150's, has done next to nothing since Aust Open)

169 (168) Christina Wheeler (Same mediocre results as last year, no improvement, ranking around the same)

263 (226) Racheal McQuillan (Apart from winning Bendigo $25K, Rachel has only won 2 other matches! Now injured her rank will drop to 360's after Mount Gambier, her career is all but over. Rank has dropped from 170's to 360 in a few weeks)

264 (260) Lauren Breadmore (Reasonable year for Lauren, her rank got a surprise boost at Aust Open. Given her talent she's done ok with some smart scheduling off to China soon for the $50K's. Rank up from about 380 I think.)

271 (268) Monique Adamzack (Excellent year, rank up from 1000+ after returning from injury)

275 (341) Casey Dellacqua (Played limited schedule, started year in 400's. Has been a good year for her!)

Would agree with that

Alicia has had the break through year with Nicole consolidating

Evie and Racheal are dropping

while Sam and Christina are being consistent


look for Kriz, Dellacqua, Stewart and Adamzcak to go great in the new year

GO THE AUSSIE GIRLS


Alicia Molik~Nicole Pratt~Samantha Stosur~Christina Wheeler

Nicole Kriz~Monique Adamczak~Isabella Holland~Jessica Moore

I think the one shining point for Aus Women's Tennis this year has been Alicia's breakthru. She does have her highest year end ranking ever and did win a title.

It's funny but I thought Nicole had done nothing special this year. I took it for granted that she would be ranked 53 or higher this year. Her ranking is remarkable when you consider what a horrible patch she had there for a while. Rewind to 1999 (I think) when she was ranked about 120 and got in AO on a WC, doubt if anyone would have thought she would have performed so well over the next 4 years.

Evie, very disappointing, not just because her ranking is plummeting but it's frustrating because she is so talented. She has been top 100 before and she has the ability to be consistently ranked there. Does anyone know if she is carrying an injury, is a mental issues or does she not enjoy the travel/tour?

Sam seemed to hit the 139 wall which is a replay of the Cindy Watson situation. Think she will fall steadily over the next few weeks as the Challengers play out unless she can get in some good wins. Hope next year can be a better one for her.

Christine seems to have trod water.

Casey seems to be the only other one who has had a reasonable year. Hope she does well in the SA Challengers and we see her move up considerably.

Evie

Evie did have a couple of injuries during the year but I think it's hard to get around the fact that she did have a pretty ordinary year.

I think one of the problems with Evie is that she cant seem to settle down with one coach. I think she's had about 5 or 6 coaches since turning pro and each one almost starting from scratch and trying to restructure her game.

The current coach Adrian Montesinos took over just before the French Open where Evie trounced Benesova 60 61 but she hasn't won a match on the WTA tour since R1 Birmingham in June.

Yes it is frustrating coz Evie's best is top 20 stuff but her worst is atrocious

But she is still my fave!

Definitely a nice jump for Trudi, from 11th Oz gal to #6. Hopefully some of the girls will get some nice results this week and see them move up a few slots before this challengers series is over.

On the positive side, not too many of them are going to have a lot of points to defend this time next year.

Great jumps from Trudi and Jaslyn in the last few weeks...fantastic for Trudi to be the #6 ranked Aussie!

I'm a bit concerned to see Beti Sekulovksi (530) and Christina Horiatopoulos (1030) ranked so low...both girls have a considerable amount of talent but are struggling since returning from injuries Hopefully they can 'do a Monique' next year.

Monique has had an excellent year...winning 3 satellites and jumping over 800 places Hopefully I'm not jumping the gun when I say top 200 here she comes! She trains hard, and is super fit, so why not?

I wonder what 2004 holds for Cindy Watson? Will she make a go of it again? Has Amanda Grahame definitely retired?

I still think Christina Wheeler needs *one* big tournament breakthrough and we will see her finally do something...
