Surely, surely they would get a wildcard if not.

The AELTC often leave some of the doubles WCs unassigned, but a British winner on the main tour should be a no-brainer.

They have up to 7 to use, if they see fit.

Interesting.... Others say the opposite. I did notice in their matches though it was often Rae making the mistakes. Anna is a real fighter on court. I wonder if she will form a regular partnership with Melichar now?

Mr.Sparkle Anna is making it on her own (with someone else)

I think Jola and Flipper will win, as they have more WTA xp. Would love for Anna to get her first title though.

Anna Nicole Smith (Melichar) with a walkover in the semi of WTA Nuremberg. Face Anna's former partner, JoLa (plus Flipper) in the final, starting 10am tomorrow morning. (I assume that's 9am BST.)

My guess is that Joss is injured. That has usually been the reason when one of them has played in a different partnership previously.

I saw bits of the match... Anna was good but as I kind of expected, Mertens/Minella overpowered them. Great serving and great shot making. Although Anna did hit a fantastic return winner at one point.

So now Anna will start 2017 ranked about ten places higher than Rae. They both have a lot to defend at the AO though, 3rd round points.

The final has started. Anna and Renata have just broken back for 2-2.

Mr.Sparkle Anna and Voracova are through to the finals, 7-5, 1-6, 10-6. It was very tight though, when I last looked at the score they were down 4-6 in the deciding set. Good to see Anna doing well on her own, so to speak.

Her and Voracova won! 64, 63.

Interesting draw now because basically she is in the semifinals after one win and the Kichenok sisters are out. Would watch out for Mertens and Minella though, who beat the Kichenok's.
