Marina Erakovic

Qualifying Draw

Marina Erakovic is playing extremely well at the moment, winning a few 25k events and a 50k events. She has loads of talent and has beaten many current top 100 players. Marina got all the New Zealand attention when she was younger when she was winning junior grand slam titles, but weve seen Ellen become a top 30 junior (then get not one but 2 injuries to make her rank drop dramatically) and Sacha who could be a top 10 junior by the end of the AO. Given a good draw Marina should pick up some good points here.

Sacha Jones

Junior Main Draw

12 months ago pretty much noone (including myself) had heard of Sacha Jones, but in the last 6 months she has really grown on the junior scene moving from outside the top 100 to just outside the top 10. This includes titles at the G1, G2 and GB2 level. Sacha will likely be a seed here - her first at a Junior Grand Slam. Could she be the AO Champion? Realistically im not sure, but because fast hardcourts are one of her best surfaces I think we can expect her to do pretty well here.

Ellen Barry

Junior Qualies

I must admit, I was alittle bit surprised to see Ellen down on the qualies list for the Junior AO - I thought she was done with juniors. Ive made contact with her since and she just tells me that she loves playing tennis and that every match helps improve her play.
Shes a very tough opponent with a killer of a forehand.
Best of luck to you Ellen!
