Tess That sucks Zuzana. I used to play many tournaments at booroondara but dont much now as guy who runs it always does this! Considering how many other events he has (under 10s, 12s, etc) you would think he would be nicer with prizemoney as they make so much! Everyone is upset with booroondara dont worry and gets many complaints. Good win but versus masa. Anymore amts now?

Thanks for supporting anyway
Yeah, it seems like they really stretched this one, with such a big price money decrease because there were 46 rather than 47 Pity you can't get someone to overrule the director.

Anyway, when are you leaving for Mexico and USA? I think it will be a really good trip, lots of points and $$ to grab South America is a decent idea too if you like clay, the ITFs are very weak and accommodation and food is cheap.
In the beginning of March...:-) Mexico and USA... Mexico is on hard court and USA green clay :-) i wish someone could overrule him as well haha.... I will probably find some cheap airbnbs in mexico and usa as well which is great

Without any prior information... I just won but im so dissapointed i cant even be happy now... U know im struggling with money so this is terrible for me :-(
That's really annoying Zuzana. I didn't know TD's could do that Could this happen ITF level too? It's really bad if people are using these tournaments and factoring in prize money to continue on to the next step in their career.
They cant do it with ITF... Its only in australian AMT's :/

That is horrible Zuzana How unlucky as well, that it just went under 47, and that the director reduced it

I hope you manage to get through the next few months ok Hopefully getting backs to ITFs soon will help.

I hope the great job you did qualifying for Launceston got you some $

Yeah its tough with them.... About the $ i can write another nessage to you so you know
There was 50% reduction in prize money. Entry fee was 70$. First , tournament was listed starting at 26.1.2016... No one could enter because all girls played ATL finals in Melbourne. I called them asking if they can move it to 27th... Refused , extended entry deadline for another few days... Even more girls withdrew...they wrote about prize money reduction... Well i had my flight so i knew i will be playing... In the end I started my first match 27th... More girls told me if its listed starting 27th they would come to play practice matches.... So I got just few $ haha....and not even prize!!!! Last two years we got trophy- beautiful wooden trophy Tasmania Island... Not this year...well, what can I say...

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

That sounds really tough Umpiring at AMTs can be quite shoddy though, so it's bad luck.

At least you won today though

I didnt know she was sick at all...just from the newspaper...so there were some terrible lines calls i think linespeople were sleeping or something :-))) and people could see it and Jozef as well and you just want to fight when you see it... Jozef went off court to complain and that was about it...there was one weird moment as well...in late second set - rogowska hit the ball close to the line, linesperson on the other side showed out with her hand but didnt call it... I stopped because i could see her hand really showing out. Unexperienced cahir umpire said its point for Olivia. I was fighting. Called ref but he said its chairs decision haha. Next day I asked ATP supervisor Scott Ray and he said I was right. There should be replay the point because line person made mistake. She cant just show out and then do nothing haha. Chair umpire didnt even want to ask her if she did it or not so i was really frustrated... People Im staying with were cheeringg for me after this incident for every ball and that was it. Hahaha i lost
