Tough matches lie ahead for the Aussie women

Tough matches lie ahead for the women aiming to qualify for the main draw of the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts when play gets underway 9am tomorrow at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.

Sunshine Coast teenager Tiffany Welford will play No.1 seed Stephanie Cohen-Aloro from France in the first round. Cohen-Aloro made her Fed Cup debut in 2003 and played doubles in the World Group Final Tie where France defeated the USA 4-1.

Also facing a seeded player is Sophie Ferguson from NSW, who will line up against No. 8 seed Aniko Kapros from Hungary, who won the Australian Open junior singles and doubles titles in 2000.

Nicole Kriz (NSW) will play Italian Antonella Serra Zanetti, a quarter finalist at the Canberra Women’s Classic in 2003; and Christina Horiatopoulos (NSW) will face Spaniard Cristina Torrens Valero, a winner of two WTA Tour titles.

Other strong contenders in the qualifying draw are Silvia Talaja who won the 2000 Uncle Tobys Hardcourts; 1999 Wimbledon semi finalist Alexandra Stevenson and Austrian Barbara Schett, a former world No.7 player.

The qualifying draw has 32 players competing for four places in the main draw of the Tournament.
