Deadline has passed and she made MD in Johannesburg. So she will be automatically withdrawn from elsewhere.
I thought they did it solely on P1s
Anyway, I am happy
Although I am scared Edinburgh will stuff her up but British and Australian Clay are just shit lome hard courts so I think she'll be OK
It will be fine for her to get Johannesburg from England though
As far as I can remember, she was supposed to have AO as the last junior event, but later said she could still play Wimbledon, didn't say why.. Maybe she wants to play a grass event, since clay is more available?
In an interview at the US or Australian Open she said she was already thinking about the ball when she was serving for the 1st Set vs Bouchard and said she got too far ahead of herself
I kinda understand wanting to play on Grass but she is better on Clay...
So she is off to Edinburgh soon. Hopefully she gets a boost from seeing her bff Jess again, wins the tournament and then does well in Johannesburg too
Yeah I hope seeing Jess will be helpful
Anyway, Johannesburg is filled with weak Journeywomen so unless she gets a seed first round I would be very surprised if she lost
I hope she gets:
She has a shot at winning the tournament if she gets that draw
But winning Edinburgh is more important for her confidence although if she lost I hope its an early round so she can be ready for Johannesburg
I hope she doesn't get killed though
As for Edinburgh, it is so weak now unless she plays badly or gets Lekaj she'll win
Anett's schedule has been posted on her website. Great that she is going to play Moscow 25k at the end of May, this will most likely be weak enough for her to get to MD.
However not so great imo is that she really intends to play junior RG Yeah, I can understand she really wants that trophy, but still.. Well, on the other hand, Bouchard for example was a year older than her when she still played junior slams last spring, she was not even top 300 at that time and now she's in top 100.
Anett is on court now and is 2-2
More worryingly is 1/5 BPs, 2 Doubles and 15-40
I know her opponent is former Top 270 and in decent form but I still find this weird
I hope she is fine
At least she won the game
Anett lost 7-6(6) 6-2
Seems she must have played very badly but Smith either played well at the end or Anett didn't hit a ball in as after she was up 2*-1 the games weren't even close.
I knew it was a stupid decision to play here.
Her BFF went further in the tournament than she did to INFINITY
My hopes for Johannesburg are at an all time low...
She still has Dubs though
