The Emily Webley-Smith Thread

After she beat Nakamura in Surbiton, I thought it fit to provide her with the ultimate reward. A cheering thread in WTAWorld

She has a tough R2 match against McCain

Go Emily!

The fruit series is suspended whilst Grachka (obatafan) mourns Saori's retirement.

Go Emily!
I think she's capable of a top 200 finish this year!

for some reason i always get those two mixed up
Emily needs to play soon to get into US Open qualies

Entry date is July 19
but she will have until Aug 2 ranks to move a bit higher to make sure.

US Open has 128 players in qualies so she probably will make it.

Good luck to my favs

Where is Emily next playing? and when?

What sort of ranking does she need to get into US Open Qualies? 240-ish?

Hope she can make it

Glad to see the thread finally got going

Emily is committed to the Schenectady $50K on the 19th July, with her old ranking of 349 - along with Anne, Elena (maindraw) and Jane (qualifying).

And the next week she is in the higher tiered event in Lexington! Is it a WTA Tour event now? In any case, her new ranking takes her to the qualies.

emly

but even so (apart from it ebing a terrible loss especially with Mp's) she'd have needed to qualify and probably won a round or 2 to be sure

she won't make US Open especially as she is playing the 10k, so now needs to focus on getting some good wins in in teh indoor events so she can defend wimbledon okay, and hopefully make it into Oz Open

Well she lost in straight sets to Nugent who is just crap so i don't know what shes doing.I think she's very up and down but as she improves there will be more ups than downs.

GOOD LUCK IN 2016 GB TENNIS GIRLS
