I think qualifiers have a good advantage in the desert. They have time to adjust. Conditions are pretty different -- very bright, very dry/thin air, balls fly. Remember how many upsets/oddball results there were in Las Vegas $50K last year?! Similar desert situation.

:sad: She wasn't that far out of AO cut actually.

Yea, but the Aussie is typically the easiest grand slam to get into for the qualies because of the high traveling costs to get there. I think she'll need to be in the 210 range to make the other grand slam draws.

I never thought it as THAT high for all the others. Usually around 220-230 I thought, but maybe that changed since they became mandatory - I didn't really check the cutoffs the last couple of years. And obviously I know the AO cut is usually a bit lower - i have been going there the last 16 or so years. :p
