Re: British Nationals
All the quarterfinals are pretty much interesting.
Broady vs. Cunningham: Last year I would of picked Amanda based on her junior results but Naomi has overtaken her this year. Prediction: Broady in 2 tough sets
Rae vs. Cornish: Well, Steph hasn't done anything of merit this year which is unfortunate because she seems to be a real talent. Jocelyn, however, has had a good year losing only to good players in challengers and getting a couple decent results in juniors. Prediction: Rae in 2 mild sets
Watson vs. Sargeant: Heather has been the one to watch this week beating her 1992 rival, Tara Moore. She followed that up with a convincing win over Vickers. I don't know much about Amy except that my cousin used to beat her all the time when she played. Unfortunately my cousin has all but given up tennis and Amy seems to be doing quite well for herself. Prediction: Watson in 3 sets
Nebojanko vs. Marks: While this may not be the most interesting of the quarterfinal matches I do think it will be the closest. After not doing anything of note this year, Anastasia made a challenger second round in Wrexham, losing to eventual champion Tara Iyer. She continued that form with a win over her good friend and really one of our most pleasant surprises this year in Jade Windley. Natasha has had some good wins in challengers but I don't really know too much about her. Prediction: Nebojanko in 3 tough sets
