Re: Grand Slam debutantes

I'm here, just not really impressed with any of these three. Kulikova is the only one I hope to see more of in the future.

2016 Title(s):
Suicide: Strasbourg

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Added the debutantes at RG and Wimbledon. Career high rankings and career best Slam performances of previous debutantes to be updated by the end of this month (hopefully).

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson

I hope they're merely scared of Manasieva's hair.
That was totally the reason.

Yurika Sema

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Order of likeliness [although I think all are rather unlikely to win (except Sema/Tatishvili of course]:
1.Tetreault - she has proven to be in good form and is in with a shot against Haynes.
2.Lykina - she has shown good nerves against Ondraskova & Martic has been shaky again after a good FO.
3.Chang - Arvidsson has been appalling before NY, but if she is back she should get through comfortably.
4.Jovanovski - I think she is far too inexperienced to beat Gullickson.
5.Lapushchenkova - bad form against in form & her play in last round of quallies has been really bad in all attempts.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Thanks everyone for keeping the thread updated.

Yet another not terribly exciting pack of debutantes. But the USO qualies are always a bit underwhelming. You look at the draw, and it's a mix of veteran challenger hacks, unlucky players struggling to reach their old level after lengthy layoffs, hopefuls who failed to fulfil expectations, mid-ranked former top 100ers now deep in slumps...

If there was a proper calendar of upper tier challengers after Wimbledon, I suppose that more players would enter the USO Q in good form and ready for a breakthrough. But the USO qualies are typically a crapshoot and among the debutantes there are few hyped young hopefuls iPatty would care about or even players in shit hot form.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Has anyone debuted based on ranking alone for the AO?

No, I don't think so.

QD is out, but not much point in speculating before the final round IMO.
