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

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).

Many thanks for that information. :worship:

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

Melanie has moved into the qualifying draw :bounce:

Go brits:)

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

Four brits in qualifying on their own ranking :woohoo:

A Keothavong (30) (140) v Y Fedossova (261)
M South (179) v (18) K Nagy (126)
S Borwell (206) v S C-Aloro (157)
K O'Brien (238) v (WC) A Weinhold (571)

Four become three

Anne :sad:

Good luck tomorrow Melanie, Sarah and Katie :) :) :)

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! :unsure:

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.

Melanie 4-6 1-6 :sad: Tough draw Melanie as Kyra is playing well this year having won three titles already.

Kyra's results 2006 IN DETAIL
FEBRUARY - Fell 1r at Dubai (l. to fellow qualifier Nagyova).

APRIL - Won singles title at $25K ITF/Poza Rica-MEX.

JUNE - Won singles title at $50K ITF/Zagreb-CRO (d. Garbin in final).

JULY - Won third ITF Circuit singles title of year (15th of career) at $25K ITF/Roma Canottieri 4-ITA (d. Cornet in final); fell 1r at Budapest (l. to top seed Castano).

Cohen-Aloro d. Borwell 6-2 3-6 7-6 (8-6) :sad: Tough draw, great fight.

Weinhold d. O'Brien 57 75 63 :sad:

At least we know what the girls can accomplish...which 2007 should be good. Never thought i'd see 4 go to US Open qualies...that's a big accomplishment. things can only get bigger and brighter.

Aug 23rd, 2006, 11:40 PM
Hopefully Elena will be back and it will be five GB players in 2007 who will also be much more experienced next time. Good luck girls.

Aug 23rd, 2006, 11:42 PM
pissed off with Sarah B :mad:
what a chance blown :( :( and 15 pts down the drain :fiery:

Aug 23rd, 2006, 11:43 PM
Not as upset as Sarah must be :sad:

See I have green lines on my signature :fiery:

The girls missed their chances here. The only one i'm not too shocked with is Mel. First time playing in this event. Same for Katie but she had a dream draw.

Didn't think Sarah would get that close but missing 3 MP is inexcusable.

Anne:rolleyes: Doesn't look like she'll ever go much further.
