Storm fought hard against Myers. Hope she'll be well-rested for the match against Rodionova.

Nice article about Storm. Didn't know she was battling an elbow injury recently.

Storm Sanders survives scare against Abbie Myers to progress in Australian Open wildcard playoff

Tough win keeps young Aussie hot on Open trail

Storm Sanders was relieved to get through to the semi-finals of the wildcard playoffs.

WEARY Storm Sanders couldn’t even rest up in a cool locker room at Melbourne Park on Thursday.

If grinding out a tight three-sets win in the heat to stay alive in the Australian Open wildcard play-off wasn’t enough, she had to then submit to a routine drug test.

A woman from ASADA approached Sanders as she came off an outside court following a 4-6 6-2 8-6 win against NSW’s Abbie Myers to reach the semi-finals.

The West Australian left-hander, battling back from injuries over the past two years, fell behind after dropping serve in the sixth game of the third set. But she broke straight back to stay in the contest.

Sanders had to ward off break points on serve at 4-4 and again at 5-5 before she finally found a way to put Myers under similar pressure when the tall NSW player served at 6-7.

Myers saved one match point with an ace, but bounced her racquet in frustration after succumbing with a double fault in a cruel ending to such a close match.

“It was a tough battle. I watched Abbie play on Tuesday and she was hitting the ball really well. She’s an aggressive player and has a lot of weapons,’’ Sanders said.

“I knew it was going to be tough and whoever got the first strike in would win most of the points.

“She was serving quite well throughout the whole match. I found it quite difficult to get her first serves back and it was good being able to serve first and keep pressure on her to hold serve in that third set.

“On those break points (against her), I was really concentrating on doing something with my serve, try to get the ball to move and try to make her feel uncomfortable. If she had hit a winner, that would’ve been too good. I just really wanted to make her play and earn the break.’’

Sanders fell ill with tonsillitis before last year’s wildcard play-off and Tennis Australia gave her a discretionary wildcard into the 2015 Australian Open women’s singles draw.

She battled a back injury last year and an elbow ailment this year before getting valuable match practice as a teammate of Daria Gavrilova on the victorious Royal South Yarras team in the southern conference of the Asian Tennis League Fast-Four format over the past few weeks.

“I’m really focusing on playing some solid matches and keep building because I haven’t played much in the second half of the year because of my elbow. So, it’s a bit of stop-start and it’s really nice to get matches under my belt,’’ Sanders said.

“When you’ve had a few injuries, it’s hard to get some momentum. I play my best with a lot of matches under my belt.’’

Sanders, the sixth seed, plays second seed Arina Rodionova on Saturday for a place in the play-off final.

Rodionova was too strong for young Victorian Destanee Aiava 6-2 6-4 in their quarter-final.

“She’s going to be quite tricky, she’s a smart player and quite different to how a lot of the other girls play. And she’s a good competitor too,’’ Sanders said.
