Amanda Janes Cheering Thread

I didn't know what to put between Amanda Janes & Cheering Thread, so I just left it as it is

It looks like Amanda will be the British Number 3 at the end of the year, which is somewhat of a suprise considering before June she was ranked in the 500's/600's. So a major achievement so far, and things should be getting better as Amanda enters the top 300

Any news on results & commitments post them in here

Good Luck Amanda for the rest of 2003

She's in qualifying for $75K in Bordeaux which starts today!

thanks Colin

Amanda was scheduled to play Caroline Dhenin in R1 in qualifying but ended up defeating Bye

Well Done Amanda

She plays Libuse Prusova in R2,and then most probably the top seed Poutchek

Amanda is 5th on the commitments list for Glasgow $25k. Hopefully a player above her can pull out, so she and Jane won't meet until at least the semi's. Let's hope the drawmaker is nice and put's her & Jane in different halves of the draw

There are some good points to be picked up here so lets all hope Amanda can live up to her seeding

Good luck Amanda

Amanda is through to the 2nd round of Glasgow $25k, by squeezing past Ana Vrljic of Croatia 7-5 7-5. In R2 she will play Russian Irina Boulykin who won her first round match 6-2 6-4.

Good Luck Amanda

More Good News is that Amanda is in the opposite half of the draw to jane And all British final could happen

Amanda was playing in the Porto $25K this week.
She was beaten in r1. by Laura Dell'Angello(ITA) 6-4 4-6 6-3.

BTW she's just two places bellow her personal best world ranking (297) now. She should improve on that when Glasgow points go on. Watch this space!

Confirmed 6/10/03:

Amanda Janes - World No. 290, her personal highest ranking.

With Lucie and Julie (both nominally higher) in retirement, Amanda is effectively Britain's No. 3 behind Anne and Jane.

This week she is playing in the Jersey $25K.

Well Done Amanda But with no points to defend she should be around 250 at least by the end of the season

Good Luck in Jersey Amanda
