The qualifying draw is out and Evie is the 16th seed.

Unfortunately Evie has drawn Gisela Dulko of Argentina in the first round :( This is a very tough match for Evie, as Gisela is a very talented girl. Evie has not played since Fed Cup so this is not the kind of match you want as your first!!!

The rest of the draw seems OK I guess. If Evie beats Dulko, I expect her to qualify.

Here is her section.

Evie Dominikovic (16) v Gisela Dulko
Jessica Lehnoff v Catalina Castano
Melinda Czink v Maret Ani
Celine Beigbeder (18) v Shenay Perry.

One of these 8 girls will make it through. All the best Evie, you can do it :kiss:

Yes, disappointing result but was tough for Evie with no lead up matches (I'd still love to know if it was a forced break or not). Dulko didn't end up qualifying either.

Match of the 1st Rnd will be Hantuchova vs Pratt and Molik is due to face V. Williams 2nd Rnd.

Evie will no doubt be playing doubles (presumably with Marissa Irvin) and Mixed with Ben Ellwood (guessing again). We'll follow her progress there.

And Go Hewy!:D

Granville is hitting the form lately so its not a big shock her team outduelled them.

I think right now all Evie needs is match play. Hope she plays some ITF events to get back her groove. :)

Hewitt is the only Aussie left in the draw, so good luck to him!!!
