Just out of curiosity why do you not like Aga? You're Polish, Ula is your fave and you also seem to like most of the other Polish players :shrug:

I don't like Jegiołka, Domachowska, Piter, Linette and so on. :devil:
Zaniewska, Rosolska, Jans-Ignacik - I am neutral.
I only like Ula, Kania, Sobaszkiewicz and Lewandowska (junior player) - they are just 4 players from Poland. :)

Off-topic, but when a fan is a bit invasive, I guess they have the right to feel uncomfortable. People act differently and don't have to behave as if they were friends with everybody, even with their fans :shrug:

I am not sure about Bepa, but I agree with Viktymise about Kuzzie. I would say she is as dangerous in this tournament as Dinara was in ASB Classic in 2011 (she lost in the very first round).

Kuzzie's downfall started in ASB 2011 too, where she was the 3rd seed (after Maria and Yanina) and after her first round win over the then-top-Kiwi player Sasha Jones (who plays for OZ now) mockingly said that she is sorry to beat the best Kiwi player in 2 sets. Little did she know that she is gonna be beaten in the next round by an unseeded Peng Shuai, and in two years she won't be even seeded in this tournament.

She did well while she was good at it, but some players don't realize that they need to retire sooner than later, and keep playing until they fade away.

Eleni can pretty much always ask for a wildcard, shes a crowd favourite and (at least used to) spends a bit of time hanging around the practice courts and is very happy to do autographs for every man and his dog.

I really hope Bouchard gets the last one

Any word on the quali wildcards? Imogen Golder, probably Paige who else?

Golder and Hourigan are already confirmed.

I'll bed on Di Holland's and Fanning provided they are fit.
