Christina McHale

Time for Christina to get her own thread.

She just won the USTA WC play-off with a 61 60 win over Gail Brodsky, so we will see her in the main draw of the Aussie Open. Have a nice rest now Christina.

Re: Christina McHale


Finally a new american that we can believe in. Everybody's been talking about Coco, but Chrissie(yeah that's rights I said it)just beat her in straight sets along with the other young Talents. She even got a win over Vania King whose been as high as 50 in the world. Anyone feel free to post pics and information about Christina because I don't even know what she looks like. Hope fully she gets Kuzzzie or somebody easy first round!!

Re: Christina McHale

Christina's run to the Orange Bowl F has secured her a direct entry in the junior Australian Open so we will be seeing lots of her during the fortnight.

Re: Christina McHale

Christina.

Seems like she is eclipsing her sister. The second girl from the right is also beast. Actually all of them in that second picture are beast. I can see them all becoming pro but I've seen them play and she is very, very good.

Re: Christina McHale

Who is in that picture? I don't recognize hardly any of them.

Can you give us more information on how she plays? I have read that she is a really scrappy fighter but the videos I have watched of her she seems to hit quite flat and I don't see the two styles meshing well together...

Re: Christina McHale

The second girl from the right is Shinann Featherston and the girl next to her is Lindsay Clark. I remembered that Shinann won a Grade 5 event in Ireland against a McHale but I looked it up and she beat Lauren and not Christina in the finals.

Yeah, she is a very scrappy player, I didn't get to watch her much so I can't really comment on Christina. But I'm very surprised that she has made this much success so quickly. I was impressed but I thought CoCo, Asia, etc were better prospects. But I can't wait to see follow her results in the Australian season!

Re: Christina McHale

Re: Christina McHale

She is in MD of AO against Aussie WC Jessica Moore. Tough match indeed, but she has a very good chance to win.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Christina McHale

Good luck Christina. She has no home crowd pressure or anything so I hope she goes out there and does herself justice. This is a winnable match!
