Stephens & Baker Out First Round
1 January 2005
Try as they might Kiwi tennis players, Shelley Stephens and Leanne Baker couldn't pass the first round of qualifying at the ASB Classic.
Stephens, ranked at 375 put in her best performance in her ten years of playing in the event but in a rain delayed match she squandered chances which would have taken her to a third set against German Angelique Kerber.
Stephens, 26 lost the first set 4-6 and then found herself in the lead throughout most of the second set before rain delayed play at the start of the tiebreak. Kerber, 17 who is ranked at 293 managed to hang in and win the tiebreak by seven points to four giving her a place in the second round.
Top Kiwi doubles player, Leanne Baker played a qualifying singles match against 2001 Classic champion Meilen Tu and found the going too tough.
Tu won the match 6-1 6-1 and will now play the Netherlands Elise Tamaela who accounted for American third seed Lilia Osterloh in straight sets.
In other results former world No 18, Silvija Talaja of Croatia scored a three set victory over Romanian Andreea Vanc.
Talaja, who was a semi finalist at the Classic in 2000 looked odds on to win the match easily but then provided a display of hit-and-miss tennis to drop the second 5-7 and then finally win the third for an overall score of 7-5 5-7 7-5.
