Go The GB Possey. I'm nervous about the draw. I have a feeling Anne is gonna play Naomi 1st round. No idea why.

May 19th, 2008, 05:58 PM

May 19th, 2008, 07:55 PM
Good luck British girls, brilliant year so far. Anne in top 100 and reached wimbledon main draw, Katie at a career high rank, Elena has won 2 ITF Tournaments and Melanie winning a tournament and reaching a career high rank.

Good luck girls.

Anne should win. Bally has a tough one, but she could pull through. Expecting Katie to beat Mel and Naomi will have to work hard against Vogele. Good luck girls! Can't believe they start at 9.00am in Paris :eek:

May 20th, 2008, 08:06 PM
Go Girls :rocker2:
Anne should pull through qualies, hope at least one of the other girls can too
Rooting for all of them :hug: (even Katie :p)

I know, soo early - my lie-in gets abandoned :rolleyes: But its worth it.

If ever there was a time to qualify, I think it would be now while excitement and hope is bound to be high!

Alex Bogdanovic (GBR)
def Mathieu Rodrigues 6-0 6-3. Great start for the Brits :D

(10)K.O'Brien def. M.South 7-5 6-1

Only one ace hit, which was beautifull delivered by Katiepegs. 4 doubles as well, but hey, could have been worse. As far as winners and unforced errors are concerned, it says Katie hit 1 winner and 4 errors, Mel 0 winners and 2 doubles... :p

Baltacha 0-6 *0-0

May 21st, 2008, 09:29 AM
Come on Bally get it together....your not that bad on clay!!!!

May 21st, 2008, 09:35 AM
Finally....Bally has a game!

May 21st, 2008, 09:37 AM
Katie :yeah:
Mel :sad: :hug:

Come on Bally, you're better than this!
Naomi! :fiery: FIGHT!

May 21st, 2008, 09:53 AM
Bally broke back for 3-3 but lost her serve right back! Come on Bally! You can still do this!
Naomi's score stuck at 36 10 40-ad*

May 21st, 2008, 10:00 AM
Bally lost 6-0, 6-4

May 21st, 2008, 10:00 AM
Bally lost 60 64 :help: :sad:

Bally hit the only double fault. No aces for either player either. The second set was much closer on the stats, but Lyubtsova just won more points behind her serve. Good to see Bally make the second set competitive rather than just gift it away. Hopefully she is healthy and can get back on track on the grass

May 21st, 2008, 10:10 AM
Scores in the Cavaday game going crazy. At one point she'd won the set but now it's 5-5.

May 21st, 2008, 10:13 AM
Now at 3-6 5-6 15-15*

Another one bites the dust
S.Vogele (Sui) def. N.Cavaday (GB) 6-3 7-5

May 21st, 2008, 10:18 AM
Aww, sadness.

May 21st, 2008, 10:20 AM
Oh well. At least everyone's favourite Brit girl is through. :lol:

Hopefully Anne can pull it off later too. :cool:

May 21st, 2008, 10:21 AM
Its all down to Anne!

May 21st, 2008, 10:24 AM
And then there were two!

At least Maret Ani has the honour of being the highest seeded player to lose. 20 seeds have played so far today, only 8 have progressed, including a certain Miss O'Brien :devil:

May 21st, 2008, 01:48 PM
Both Naomi and Anne had a low percentage of points won behind their second serves, an obvious area of weakness for both girls

May 21st, 2008, 01:51 PM
Very depressing loss for Anne :sad:, and the manner of the loss suggests the problems may be in the head, she had game points or break points in over half the games she lost. :help:

Looks like her venture into the top 100 may be a short one unless she can improve her mental toughness under pressure.

May 21st, 2008, 03:41 PM
utter crap today

May 21st, 2008, 10:11 PM
:fiery::mad: at draw, now for the grass Melanie :devil:

May 21st, 2008, 11:37 PM
Viva Katiepegs :D Doing it to piss the haters right off ;) Keep it Up! (now we know what'll happen against Barrois ;))

May 22nd, 2008, 09:05 AM
I'm predicting Katie to get smashed 6-2 6-3. Allez Katiepegs!

Europe rocks
May 22nd, 2008, 09:49 AM
Katie saved a set point at *5-4 and then missed a break point. Lost the first set 6-4 :smash:

May 22nd, 2008, 10:18 AM
Fight Katiepegs! :bounce: 46 24 right now.

May 22nd, 2008, 10:28 AM
Katie lost so thats that!!! Next up...the grass courts of Surbiton!

6-4 6-2 :sad: Had two break points for 3-1 in the second set. Only won 30% of points behind her second serve and made 1 out of 5 break chances. Add in the fact that Barrois hit 9 aces, it just goes to show how Katie really needs to beef her serve up. Only 4 doubles for her, which is pretty good going. More ranking points on the board and hopefully move up a few spots in the rankings

May 22nd, 2008, 06:20 PM
All girls out :sad: hoping for someone to breakthrough into the main draw, but not to be :shrug:
hopefully some home crowd support is all they need and they will all be making big steps forward come Wimbledon
