OMG my dear Shona! You played the best match I have ever seen from you!!! What a great comback! Shona's ranked #650ish while Anne's ranked #131! The best win of Shona's career by far! What a way to start 2006! A HUGE UPSET!!!!!

Wow, Shona what a win! She struggles to even qualify for $25K events, so this is an incredible result for her. Only 18, so hopefully she keeps on improving :)

and it happens AGAIN!!!!!! after another string of great results, anne stumbles (and probably falls)

i can see this leaving a really HUGE dint in anne's confidence and as we know, when anne loses confidence, her results go down and down and down until the top 100 looks extremely far away.

i just hope she picks herself up from this :sad:

and i hope she didnt have match points!!! :o

Oh dear Anne! :help:

Looks like Carl Maes and Nigel Sears still have quite a bit of work to do.

Not familiar with Shona but she deserves congratulations for toughing it out and justifying her wildcard.

Carl and Nigel arent gonna do much to help players such as Anne and most of the current crop of GB girls, maybe another 5-10% improvement, what they are for are the future.

Yeah but should Britain basically give up on Anne and co and just concentrate on youngsters. Has Anne peaked already? She doesn't seem to have that winning mentality that pushes those in Top 100 through matches like this one. Or is it the Aussie heat, jet lag? All the British girls lost here first round of qualies. It doesn't look good.
