Re: Sally Peers

Did Sally have a fall? That's some serious skin loss on her right arm. Hopefully not too serious

I never actually called them successful. I was just saying that it's more difficult to break through now (compared to when the above group were teens 5-6 years ago), and if the current crop actually make it to the top 150 I'd call that a success, considering how very tough the tour is these days.

*edit* - and yes, Liv streets ahead of the pack

Re: Sally Peers

The current kids have done much better in juniors than the 90/91 girls.

CHR in juniors:
Peers: 54
Rogowska: 174
Holland: 23
Bai: 87
Patterson: 156
Calderwood: 33
Moore: 14 (the only exception)

Whereas we already have:
Hon: 13
Bains: 17
Birrell: 18
Mendez: 29
Tomic: 36
Aiava: 49
Cabrera: 64
Tjandramulia: 65
Inglis: 81

It's just so tough to break through now, even compared with 5-6 years ago, so these current kids will do well to break the top 150, like 3 of the above mentioned girls have. To me, that will actually be a success.

Sally might argue that as between 2009-11, when she had a 3-0 head to head. Though I agree that overall Liv's game had more scope, I thought Sally would be more successful on tour because she just had that innate ability to win points better with playing percentages. Got that wrong in the end

I think the current group have more well rounded games and less weaknesses then say Holland (backhand/serve), Peers (serve). Excluding Rogowska ofcourse who has worked very hard on her serve.

Re: Sally Peers

^ The funny thing is, when she was 17-18 I thought she was probably the best of Moore, Rogowska, Holland, Bai etc..... in keeping calm and understanding how to construct points. Now she has declined worse than all of them.

This is pretty accurate. I've seen her a few times in Toowoomba over the past few years and while her groundies still look nice, she appears to have forgotten how to win a point...particularly important points. She's hit rock bottom now so hopefully she can start a fresh in 2015!

Re: Sally Peers

She did get some quality wins recently against Baric, Rajicic and Gavrilova, and that made me start to wonder if we were perhaps seeing the start of some sort of turnaround. Impossible to know, but time will tell.
