What a shock! She went in 1-3 against Lisa, and I thought it would be more of the same.

Then again, her only win against Lisa came at Birmingham in 1999. ;)

May play Daniilidou next....

This is grass. Tammy is an entirely different creature on grass..... her game starts to come together and her flat shots work very well. :)

That is good question.
Tammy's game isn't clay court game. She is hitting the ball flat and she takes to hit the ball early for getting control the point first. Tammy is kind of lack of patience when having long point rallies and she isn't moving well on clay.

Most of clay specialists started to hit the ball on clay when they were young. They are moving well and know well how to win the points, they are kind of having mental game when having long point rallies. Unfortunately Tammy and Paradorn can't do that because we don't have clay court to practice in Thailand.

There are a lot of clay tournies a year compared to grass tournies. Most of clay specialists can boost up their ranking when they play on clay. That is the reason why clay specialists (PISTOLESI, CLARISA, PAOLA,....) are playing this week in Vienna instead of playing (warming up) grass tourney. I'm pretty sure Tammy will be ready in top 20 if they put a lot more grass tournaments a year. Unfortunately there are only 2 grass tournies between RG and Wimby.

Good point, Jiro. Most Asians love playing on grass, just imagine how much higher they would be ranked if there were more grass tourneys...

I'm sure Tammy would be ranked much higher than she is now if there were, but sadly there aren't. :sad:

I agree with you that most Asians love playing on grass. Tammy, Angie, Asagoe are example who like playing on grass. Tammy and Angie were Wimby Junior runner up and champion respectively.

I'm surprising :confused: why they still have clay tourney even right after Wimby. Hope Wimby organizer will be considering to moving forward the schedule a bit so that they can put a lot more warming up grass tournaments between RG and Wimby.

:worship: :worship: :worship:

watch out for her on grass! hasn't she made the 4th round the past dfew years? i think she can 1 up that this year if she can play consistently at this level. GO TAMMI!

She made the 4th round consecutive 5 years in a row in Wimby. :hearts: She will be ranked around 33 by next week after defeating Lisa yesterday. She is trying to get into top 32 otherwise she may not be seeded in Wimby this year.

Hope Tammy will be playing well to dominate Eleni today.

C'mon Tammy. :kiss:

Keep going, sweet Tammy! :kiss:

I agree with Jiro...Remember Yayuk Basuki? She used to have good record at Wimbledon and she reached QF in 1997 when she lost to Jana Novotna 36 36!!! Ironically, in Indonesia we don't have grass court anymore...We used to have it in Surabaya and few others...but now they are all gone!!! :sad:

even if she doesn't get into the top 32, top 33 should be enough to get her a seed. But it's could possibly be better for her to be unseeded.

Yes Yayuk Basuki also played great tennis on grass. Her game suited grass very much. Another one great player from Asians is Kimiko Date. If my memory is correct, she has been reaching SF in Wimby.

I also think the same that it's could possibly be better for her to be unseeded because she may gain bonus points if she beat seeded players in the early round. But she doesn't have chance to win if she meet Williams sister or hard hitter like Lindsay.

I agree with you that top 33 should be enough to get her a seed in case of some player withdraw.

Good luck Tammy. :kiss:

well, as a ranking expert I know pointed out to me, as a lower end seed, she'd be assured of having to meet a member of the top eight in the third round. unseeded, no such guarantee. She might pull a player from the 9-16 range as the highest ranked player in her fourth round path. It would just be difficult for her defeat a top eight seed. Though she has done it before.
