SM i saw some of her match against Lisa McShea at Albury Wodonga this year. I wouldnt say she is another Nicole because Nicole hits way harder.

They use the same maxim to win by keeping their errors low and relying on the opponent to miss by getting everything back, but it ends there. Nicole hits her fh quite flat and likes to attack given the chance. Lauren on the otherhand doesnt seem to be able to flatten it out and just finish the rally given the chance....but maybe it wasnt a good day

azza Score?

TS She turned 20 recently.

She lost her QF match to Cargill, but still a nice week for her. Should take her to about 250

Gowza i'm excited about this match against cargill. unfortunately lauren has had long matches in this tournament so she won't be really fresh to play ansley but this match will give us some sort of indication as to lauren's level and potential.

louloubelle Lauren is doing well at the 50K Oyster Bay tournie.
She defeated Vanc in the 1st rnd - avenging a lllloooooonnnnngggg tempermental loss at Oz Open quallies and the scrapped home against Sfar in 3.

Now plays top seed Cargill in the quarters.

Nice to see her getting a good result again!

TS bump

Been a while since we saw this thread.

Well Lauren has been quite the travelling machine so seems she has played every week, and with 31 tournaments to her name that's not a stretch

Lauren had a good fighting win at the $50K Fukuoka event today beating German Adriana Barna 7-5 4-6 6-3....she led 4-2 in the second, and almost blew it (Lauren seems to get tight in situations like this!) but glad she pulled through. She's got Sam Stosur next, and I don't think she will beat Sam but she is in with a shot...

Her ranking should rise from 276 to the mid 260's next week....the annoying thing is Barna dropped to 251 this week, so 1 quality point less

TS Unfortunately Lauren hasn't had the best time of it the past 3 weeks...

She lost in the second round of qualys in 2 British challenger events, and the 1st round of Bendigo this week to Adamczak in straight sets. Happy for Monique though, she needed this after her injury...

Anyway, Lauren is committed for next weeks $10K in Warrnambool. Not much to gain, points wise and I gather she'll play the full 4 week Victorian circuit. Gotta be taxing on the body! If she plays all 4 than that is 10 tournaments already for the year! Good to see she's taking initiative but playing week after week can often have its drawbacks!

louloubelle Spot on TS, she is another Nicole Pratt. She has many 3 set matches and I wonder whether her matches are like Nicole's. You know, Pratt wins 6-2 6-2 or loses the same but the match takes 1 and 1/2 hours
Feb 20th, 2003 07:30 AM
TS For those that dont know how Lauren plays, she is basically Nicole Pratt with a double handed backhand, lol. Well, not really

But the way they both fight for every point and hustle around the court, is very similar. I was very impressed with Laurne this summer, as what she lacks in the power department she more than makes up for in smart tactical play and tremendous effort. The only thing Im critical of is her temperament, which is part of the reason she let the Vanc match slip away...

I dont know if Lauren can be seen as making the top 100 just yet, but considering this is only her second year as a pro she is still learning and getting more experience in. By the end of the year I do expect her to be ranked between 200-250. She certainly is capable and can compete as well as anyone, but as louloubellle said the only thing that could stop her making the top 100 is that she is not as powerful or strong as the other girls, and has no major weapons.

Good luck to her anyway she's one of my favorites of the Aussies But I hope she doesnt burn herself out by playing too much...

Gowza AUSBOY, how did you find out her exact uai/ter? dux is pretty amazing. she is a wellround woman. is she good at music as well? that would be a bit of everything if she was. some people like we see in sport are allrounders in life. it's good to see she has some options if tennis doesn't work out.
Feb 20th, 2003 03:46 AM
AUSBOY She's very intelligent, she got a perfect TER of 99.95 and was Dux of her private school.

She also comes from a solid middle-upper class family, so financially she isnt as strapped as others

Gowza a long long time ago when she was 8 or 10 yearsold there was an article about her in a tennis mag and she named to be the next big thing in australian tennis. her goal was to play in wimbledon at the age of 16 but at the age of (i think) 20 she is yet to do so. i have heard that she doesn't have much power and she won't really go that far, but she has been getting really good results and they are consistent. i'm sure she can be a regular top 200 player but because i haven't seen her i can only base this on her results. she may well have the game to be in the top 100 but i honestly don't have a clue.
