Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Taylor

Final score, 26 26.

However, she's provisionally #148 in the rankings-- a 57-spot jump!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Like I mentioned in General thread, this might be a good loss for Taylor. I think if she got too far, there might be too much hype, too much pressure and too many haters too soon for her.
Glad she made it far, and I think she will go a long ways by the end of the year.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Taylor intends to play Birmingham and Eastbourne and hopes to make Wimbledon in some fashion, either via WC (remote) or qualies. Nice interview with Pam'...

Awesome! Thanks for the linc. I guess the WC will come down to how she does at B-Ham

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

I don't think it's a bad thing if she has to play Qualies, build up some match-practice and points Although if she's playing like this...

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

"From here, Townsend will go to Birmingham, England, where she will attempt to qualify for Wimbledon."

Well, I guess she will qualify for Wimby if she wins B-Ham...She will probably get a MD WC

But seriously, the interviewer probably just got confused with the information

It will depend on her performance in B-Ham if she will get the WC for Wibly.

Agree100% with all of this. Also, not many players leap so suddenly from ITFs to WTA events, and even playing qualifying for those is a huge adjustment from the challengers. I think she'll handle the next few months well, but it'll be a lot easier for her if the media refrains from insane expectations.

I'm not sure she would have to win, just make a good run. I guess it would depend on who makes it to the finals, and if they would even need a wild card. I know Mel won it and got the wild card, but it's pretty rare for a qualifier to win the tournament. There were a number of players that year who could've won, that already had direct entry into the Wimby main draw. So I guess it just depends. If she gets some big wins, makes a deep run, and other lower ranked players go out early, she might not need to win the tournament to get the wildcard.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Taylor's ranking jumped from 205 to 150. Just an incredible leap in the past few weeks.
