Good to see three Brit girls here this week!

And Katie is already in Main Draw. A win here could give her valuable ranking points (35 for reaching 2R) and push her ranking up. :woohoo:

Great result for Mel and a nice win for Anne. Hope they can make it through. So pleased Katie managed to get a spot in the MD, as otherwise she could have faced Iroda Tulyaganova :scared:

I hope Katie can make the most of this - its such a great chance for her! How well would she need to do to break the top 100, or is that stupidly out the picture?

I think that if she reaches the QF she might break the top 100 :scared:

Katie plays Savchuk in the main draw

The result of both Anne and Mel's matches are unknown. The latest update for the Anne match was Anne leading Woerle 0-6 6-4 *5-4. No news from Mel's match though. The organisation here is :spit:

Bad news about Katie playing Savchuk. Good news is that she is the last player in the MD and last time that happened, she just happened to reach the QF ;)

Szatmari d. South 64 26 76(6) - She served for it TWICE. :fiery:
Niculescu d. Keothavong 62 60 - Not much fight there, Anne. :(

Guess it's up to Katie then. :)

Bad loss for Melanie... thought she'd win that one. :(

I expected Anne to lose to Niculescu but that score :o Terrible!

Melanie, so so close, 6 all on the tie break and then lose the next two points when overall you won the most points in the match :bigcry: Still, you had two good wins, great matchplay and with 10 points and no points to defend your rating can only go UP. :)

Anne :sad:

Good luck Katie :)

Mel :mad: :tears: Such a shame you couldn't pull it out of the bag when you needed to. Could have been an excellent chance, seeing as Szatmari drew the wildcard in the MD :help:
Anne :spit:

I'm not posting this on gbtennisgirls for being labelled 'not a proper fan'

but I really am p*ssed off with the way the brits get so close then f*ck it up. Christ almighty Katie you had 3 effing match points against a player serving 45%, and who hasn't won a match since Sydney. Well Done!

I don't think i'd be having this rant if she'd lost 6-4 6-4, but i got up early to follow the scores when i already knew Savchuk would win, cos she always does.

end of rant

i just posted something along those lines on gbtennisgirls. i'll probably get shouted at for being negative.

but for f***'s sake she got handed the win to her on a plate by a player who isnt that good and she blew it. Absolutely useless

I don't know what hurts more. A loss like this or going down 6-0 6-0 :shrug: This was an excellent chance for Katie to get some more points on the board, but I can say at least she looks as if she can compete with the girls ranked between 80-120 which is where she needs to be looking at. Hopefully with some clever scheduling and hard work she will be able to get her ranking up without playing too much on the clay.

Conversely, should Katie just go away and come back a complete clay-whore, like some of the girls out there i.e. Knapp, Meusburger and reach the top 100 just playing all the Tier 3 and 4 clay court events which seem to be everywhere on the schedule :lol: :help:

Oh please how can you write Karin in this list??I like british girls but you're totally wrong this time :rolleyes: what claywhore is Knapp??:confused: who played the final in Antwerp against Justine?Keothavong?:tape:

Shame for Katie. She could have done with the 35 ranking points that were available.
