I just can't figure out the dramatic drop in her results over the past several months - must be more expectations or perhaps she just isn't good enough to play at the WTA level consistently.

Does anyone know if Akgul is still working with a coach, and if so, her same coach from last year (Steev or something like that)?

Mel:)

Having seen both play live i would say that Mel is actually a better player than Akgul

1 now

Am not sure whether its good or bad. Would love 2 GBR girls in a main draw outside of Wimbledon but Mel could benefit from going through qualifying as one of the top seeds. Australia always has lots of withdrawals so I guess we just watch this space.

Mel :ras: You're the reason Anne lost today. You should know now that two Brit girls can't win on the same day :sobbing: :p

Congrats on the win :hug: Good luck in the next qualifying round :hug:

Akgul :hug:

Europe rocks

Well done Mel, thought Akgul would be too much for you, but nice first win of the season over a top 100 player :)
