Finals tonight 1am CET time, 11am Aussie Start time and will be Streamed.


Looking ahead:

Rogowska said that during the match she thought how awesome it would be to play in the play-off final once again.

“It’s such a great atmosphere, lots of people come to watch and it’s streamed live, so it’s great practice for January. So it should be fun [tomorrow],” she said.

Rogowska and Barty are roommates this week and are both members of the Australian Institute of Sport. They get along well and know each others’ games having hit together many times before, but Rogowska says they are yet to play a competitive match.

“She [Barty] is playing really good tennis. She’s going out there with nothing to lose, and they’re the most lethal kind of players. So I’m just going to go out there and just try and forget who I’m playing and focus on myself and my game plan,” Rogowska said.

“She’s a very solid competitor and I’m going to have to play some top tennis to beat her.”

Tomorrow’s women’s final will begin at 11:00 am and will be streamed live on tennis.com.au.

Is Arina playing for Australia now? We know her sister Anastasia does, but Arina played for Russia in the past year.

I guess she is following her sister then :)

:wavey: My understanding is that the Australian Visa Bureau rejected her application in Jan, 2011 as she hadn't spent enough time in Australia. This rejection was then challenged. Then in July 2011 she was granted residency status pending a physical clearance. This means she could play for Australia in GS's but would take another 2 years to become an actual Australian citizen. Well that's my understanding anyhow, she has temporary citizenship as she hasn't spent enough time here yet. :confused:
