Does anyone know who the last British female player was who qualified into the Main Draw of the US Open and when?

That would be Samantha Smith, who came through the qualifying in 1997. Sam's also the last British female player to get straight into the main draw on her ranking (back in 1998).

Hopefully this year Mel or Anne or Sarah will repeat Sam's feat.

Go brits

I'm hoping Anne or Mel can do really well here. Anne almost qualified in 2003.

I think Mel has the best shot the way she has been playing lately......we shall see. It would be nice to see 1 Brit girl's name in the main draw!

Anne's loss to Fedossova was very disappointing. She had a great shot at qualifying when you look at her section of the draw. Losses like that and the one she had gainst Kop-Jones last week make me highly doubt if she'll ever get into the top 100.

Katie has the best chance for a first round win. Mel & Sarah have tough opponents.

Also good luck to Ireland's Kelly Liggan who has a stiff task taking on Agnieszka Radwanska today.
