Are the Australian Open doing the exchange thing with the UK that happened last year for the first time? Would love to see Anne Keothavong in the main draw. I assume Jane O'Donoghue is ranked highly enough to scrape the qualy draw so hopefully Amanda Janes could get the qualy wc. Or maybe I'm totally off the pace here!

it was a one-off deal, not happening this year. also unlikely jane will make qualy draw, as more girsl ranked 150-220 seem to be in oz than usual

I don't know whether we're expecting Anne K. to play quallies in Melbourne, but this week (w/b 11 Jan) she's at the Hobart tournament, where she has made it through quallies and into the main draw. (I think Melbourne quallies usually don't start till Thurs, so Anne has time to win a match or two in Hobart maindraw and then go to Melbourne in time for the Open quallies - Good luck!)
