Bally should get a MD WC. She has been the most impressive player so far. I hope Georgie recovers soon, any news on her?

Poor from the girls in qualifying really. Some seem to be on the up, like Jade and Amanda E, yet if Katie wants to prove herself worthy of a Wimbledon wildcard, she needs to start winning matches at WTA level. Hopefully Anne, Naomi and Bally will do better in the main draw

WIMBY
Jun 10th, 2007, 05:47 PM
Mel had a great match yesterday and won convincingly v a non Brit.
Today she was doing so well first set but Fedak is a very good and much more experienced player, so great experience for Mel playing at this level and having won her first round she has defended points from last year. Take this to Eastbourne/Wimbledon Melanie

Just looked at the GB Guys at the Artois' results. 16 entered first round and the only winners were those defeating other Brits, then they lost next round.
