OK I will. Bryanne was someone I thought who had the goods when I saw her play at the Aus Open 3 years back when she got to the 3rd rnd. However what i saw last summer was a shadow of the inhibited stroke player who loved to hit a topspin backhand. However very pleased that she's hanging in there and getting sone decent results at the 25K's last month.

Whether she can reach the top 150 is another question as I feel she may have regressed too far in the last year or two - as the obvious tentativeness in her game maybe something she can't put behind her.

Pratt and Stewart take doubles title


26 February 2007
Tennis Australia


Australian pairing Nicole Pratt and Bryanne Stewart have captured the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships & the Cellular South Cup with a tense victory over Slovak-Japanese duo Jarmila Gajdosova and Akiko Morigami in the final in Memphis.

The 7-5 4-6 (10-5) win was Pratt’s ninth career Sony Ericsson WTA Tour doubles title and Stewart’s third. It is also Pratt’s second doubles title in as many weeks after she teamed with Italian Mara Santangelo to win the Pattaya Women’s Open in her previous tournament.

Blogging 101 With Bryanne

GOLD COAST, Australia - The new Sony Ericsson WTA Tour season has begun and now the new blogging season begins as well as Bryanne Stewart - the one who started it all from Charleston in the spring of 2006 - writes to us all from the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts on the Gold Coast.

-----

Sunday, December 30, 2007

Hi again and Merry Chrissy!

I'm resuming my blogging duties for the Australian Open series and I look forward to bringing you a bit of an insight into what goes on and off the hardcourts through the Aussie summer. My first stop is the Gold Coast. I was the second-to-last player to arrive in the Gold Coast as I waited until the sign for doubles closed at noon on Saturday. My doubles partner, Jarka Gajdosova, called me and told me we made the cut into the draw, and to jump on the next plane from home.

Meghann Shaughnessy had the honor of arriving last, taking the red-eye from the Hopman Cup in Perth. This is the time of year I really cherish, as I don't have to travel very far to get to the Aussie events. I can enjoy my time at home and practice nearby with fellow Aussie Rennae Stubbs, and more importantly plan my up-and-coming wedding with my mum and sister. Just in case you haven't heard, I recently got engaged to my long-time boyfriend Jaymon Crabb :)

Flying in yesterday, I expected to be swept away by the world famous sunshine that brings millions of visitors to the Gold Coast; instead, in the last few moments of the flight, we met a little turbulence due to the crazy winds that had buffeted the area. Apparently the winds were due to a cyclone in far North Queensland, and we were on the tail end of the storm.

The Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts at Royal Pines is a great way to start the year. Royal Pines is a lovely resort with a relaxed atmosphere that makes me feel like I'm on holiday and not at work. This is a nice lead-up to the craziness of the year's first Grand Slam, the Australian Open, which starts in two weeks.

After checking into the hotel I went out for a practice with Alberta Brianti. It didn't last the distance as it poured with rain; therefore, I took that time to catch up with everyone I hadn't seen since my last event, the US Open. After showing off my engagement ring, Jarka and I hit the local seafood restaurant to catch up on the "goss" of the last few weeks, and then we relaxed cheering on my bridesmaid Alicia Molik and Jaymon's groomsman Pete Luczak in the Hopman Cup on TV.

I've been assigned a desk in the media room and I can hear all the action going on, and the highlight for tomorrow (other than the tennis) is that the Royal Pines Resort will be the only place in town having New Year's Eve fireworks. The other fireworks scheduled on the coast have been cancelled due to the crazy winds that are frustrating the players and blowing the hats of the spectator's heads on the two outside courts. The schedule is out and Jarka and I will play the last match of the year as the second night match on Centre Court.

So my day is over now; I'm off to the Japanese restaurant in the hotel for some sushi with Jarka and Danny from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour!

Until tomorrow,

Bryanne

Glad she's still playing and playing with Jarmilla still too. :bounce:
Pity she didn't forget a career in singles because she was talented enough... just didn't seem to have the drive for it.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone celebrated in style. I just couldn't stay awake 'til midnight as Jarka and I were on the schedule for the next day, so we took the partying easily. However, the player party went off with a bang and after last night the controversy over whether The King still lives may be revived, because if you didn't know better you would've thought Elvis was back from the dead, sounding better and looking trimmer than ever and belting out all the favorite songs and jiving moves!

The Elvis impersonator known as Dean Vegas jumped on the stage at 11pm and sang 'til the countdown for 2008. Elvis is popular everywhere but I never thought he would be quite as big in countries like Russia and Belarus. Yet he must be all the rage as several players, like Elena Vesnina, Alla Kudrayavtseva and Galina Voskoboeva, all glammed up in summer cocktail dresses and sexy stilettos and soaked up the music. Nadia Petrova led the pack, accepting the invite to join Elvis on stage; however she was outdone by Olga Savchuk, who somehow managed to swap outfits with Dean and take his position as Elvis on stage. Donna Kelso, the Tour Supervisor, kicked up her heels and let out the frustration on the dance floor after another rain delayed day. It's great to see the girls let their hair down and have some fun off the court; I think they should have compulsory player parties for most tournaments so people can see another side of the girls - it gives us an excuse to dress up and mingle with other people.

"Singing in the Rain" was playing again today as we watched it bucket down each time we got close to going onto the court for practice. Our match that was to take place Monday night has now been postponed 'til Wednesday morning at 10am, weather permitting!

Once again I followed the Hopman Cup closely today, and unfortunately the Aussies lost. My future in-laws were cheering them on in the stands as Alicia got them tickets for the match. The Hopman Cup is conveniently on the TVs in the players' areas. I think I need to borrow some of Alicia's tan, as she is absolutely glowing out there and I have been given a new nickname this week - The Milky Bar Kid - due to my pasty appearance. Jarka and I are going to hit the spray tanning salon. We went to make an appointment at the hotel spa but couldn't get in 'til Friday, so I guess we won't be the bronzed Aussie Duo tomorrow. At least most of the Europeans are also a few shades lighter than the last time I saw them too! We all have the excuse of practicing time indoors.

Some of the ball girls had the right idea of how to really make the most of their downtime - they were in the ladies' bathroom choreographing their entrance onto the court to do their job tomorrow. I promised them $10 if they actually did it on our court. I am looking forward to their performance tomorrow.

Until tomorrow!

Bryanne

Monday, December 31, 2007

I have to admit, I'm a bit of a sucker for gossip and love flicking through the trashy mags on the flights around the world. I'm always ripping out pages of things I want to buy and keeping them in my bag as a little more inspiration to win and have more money to spend shopping around the world. The English ones are great as they come with monthly presents like tote bags that break if you put more than one tennis ball in, or cheap sunnies that I only wear back at home in the pool. Normally there's a collection of mags in the trainers room that players bring in to swap when they are done. On Tour there are always fresh faces popping up on the scene with roles like boyfriend, girlfriend, coach, physio, masseuse; for example, Safina and Garbin have new coaches now.

Today I've spent a lot of time with a cup of tea in one hand and showing off the engagement bling and catching up on all the gossip that's taking place. The constant rain today made for a lot of hang about in the players' lounge and treatment room... Casey Dellacqua's newest entourage member is her new Sony PlayStation, which she bought today after getting one of the drivers to drive her to Pacific Fair (a mall). The driver waited for her while she queued for 20 minutes for a new game. She was even going to see in the new year glued to her hotel room telly while she played games till 2008! That was until I convinced her to join the rest of us in the hotel ballroom for the tournament party, where a special guest will be performing Elvis Presley... I got the scoop from the tournament director, Liz Smylie, whose husband is an obsessed Elvis fan. The performer, whose name is Dean Vegas, has some impressive credentials; not only will he run for the Mayor of Gold Coast in 2008, but a few years ago he was awarded the title of best Elvis impersonator in the world and given the key to Elvis' hometown. I'm looking forward to one glass of bubbly and to boogie with the Aussie Elvis!

Although the rain stopped play on the outside court, on Centre Court was where my doubles partner, Jarka Gajdosova, made her professional debut playing under the Australian flag. In the match today against No.3 seed Safina, both were whacking the ball as hard as possible, much to the delight of the crowd, who christened Jarka's first appearance for her new country. The crowd even gave her the "Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi" cheer after she won the first set.

Jarka still hasn't decided which state she will play for, although at the moment Victoria has the highest chance as it's the home of her new boyfriend, fellow Australian player Sam Groth. I've caught her checking out realestate.com for beachfront homes in Sydney's trendy suburb of Coogee, so maybe I still have a shot of converting her back to her first love in Australia, Sydney. Jarka will stay at my home next week for the Medibank International, so if we get time I'll get her out and about and make her fall in love with the Harbour City again.

I am off to wish goodbye to 2007 and hello to 2008! Cheers. Wishing everyone a great 2008!!!

Bryanne

Bryanne has officially retired from the game. She is now commentating for Fox Sports after announcing it today. They gave her a segment on fox sports where she talked about her career with Pratt.

Pretty good career, got to top 20 in doubles making a semi final at Wimbledon as well as top 140 in singles.
