I think quite good.

I think that Keothavong should win easily over Poutchek; but Elena might struggle a bit over Cara. Cara is meant to be serious this year about getting her singles back together whereas Elena will have the pressure of defending all the points from the Australian Open she won a year ago.

However I wish them both luck as they start their 2006 season! Do the UK proud girls!

I think Anne will win and I think she has a chance at qualifying.


For Elena it depends on which game she brings but she needs to play well going into the Aussie open as she has sooooooo many points to defend

Anne could do well here, but I'm not too sure about Elena. If Elena can get the first serve in and keep her groundstrokes under control she should be alright and she needs to remember that Cara isn't a big girl.

I hope they can win but i don't know. Wouldn't be too shocked if they both lost.

If they are both going to be top 150 by the end of 2006 they need to start byt doing well in the AUS season.

GOOD LUCK IN 2016 GB TENNIS GIRLS

It's great to see two Brit girls in Tier III qualies down in Oz. Hopefully they'll get some wins here early on and show that they are seriously committed to climbing the rankings.

I just hope Elena has a sensible schedule worked out this year. She's got a lot of points to defend at the Aussie Open so best build up some insurance beforehand.

Elena lost 6-1 6-2 to Cara Black. On the face of it she appears to have been outclassed. Very poor start to the year for the Brits.

Shame for both Brits.

Good luck in your next tournament. I hope Elena can pick up some of the points she needs to defend from last year.
