Great that we have a guranteed GBR girl in the US Open thanks to Anne automatically qualifying.
Hopefully she will be joined by some other GBR girls. Hope their Q-draw is good!

Kristina Kucova bt. Naomi Cavaday 1-6 6-3 6-1
Sad because Naomi was clearly in control at the beginning of this match. I hope she can get her form back for next year.
Looks like: South vs Brianti, Bally vs. Korzeniak, O'brien vs Matic will all take place tomorrow.

From LTA site today
Mel South and Elena Baltacha have reached the final round of singles qualifying at the US Open in New York.
Having battled through a close three setter in the first round, South once again held her nerve to beat France’s Youlia Fedossova 6-3 4-6 7-6(8-6) on Thursday. The 22 year-old will now face Shuai Zhang of China in the third and final qualifying round.
Baltacha also needed three sets for a second time to book her place in the last round of qualifying. The British No 2 defeated American Carly Gullickson 6-1 6-7(2) 6-2 in just over two hours to set up a third round clash with France’s Julie Coin.
Good luck :wavey::wavey:
