Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

I don't think it's that bad of a thing that Taylor is staying in the US instead of going over to Australia. She's so young and will be just turning pro. I believe she'd get a lot more confidence winning some ITFs and transitioning into WTA events. She really hasn't played many pro players either, so could have very well lost early in qualies and had a tougher start to the year.

Thank you!

It's upsetting that she doesn't have the funding to compete at the AO. What is the USTA's problem? Seems to me they are still upset and likely punishing her for ignoring their wishes concerning the USO. Even more, upset over all the negative press. Yet, she seems like a tough girl and will do well in spite of the unnecessary drama.

I'm not sure if it will help but I tweeted Martina Navratilova, Lindsay Davenport, Venus, and Serena. I also messaged Taylor saying I would help out with some funds if she needs them

I really think she deserves a chance to play the AO. If the reason for her not going is STRICTLY because of lack of funds, this is not right. But if her and her team thinks it's better to stay in the US and play events then that's a different story. But according to her own tweet, it's because of a lack of funds.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Maybe we should post the article on GM so more people are aware of what is purely scandalous to my mind. I mean, she wans't even invited to take part to the AO WC playoffs.

I think that's a good idea. I'm sure some people will say straight away, player thread. But it's worth a shot to say the least.

They better be careful or she might move to Kazakhstan
But in all seriousness the way they are treating her is ridiculous. That she didn't get invited to the WC play-off is semi understandable because they probably wanted her to play Orange Bowl and finish the year as Number 1, along with the fact that she may not be considered one of the best 8 Americans not to make MD, but that she can't go because of lack of funds is pure shit.

Not sure if QWC is still available or until when it will be.

She will play 2 ITF tournaments in Florida in the beginning of January.

Agree!!!

What USTA did to her is not nice. She deserves a chance for Australia. Best Junior long time USA has. Why rhey don´t protect her and help her for a good start turning pro?
