Sally is a smaller version of Camille Pin. Shes tiny, and has nothing off the ground. The matches I've seen her play, she just waits for her opponents errors. She really needs to beef the serve up to be able to have a meaningful career in the pros. But good luck to her, shes cute as a button!

She's now playing in the Traralgon 25k, she got a wildcard into the main draw. Will be very interesting to see how she goes :)

Go on Sally! Win a few matches here. I am really hoping someone comes through good over these Aust satellites. Monique and Sophie are obviously doing really well but I would like to see a bolter do some damage. Hopefully Sally might be the one.

Sally has to play Japan's Erika Sema in the first round. This is an interesting matchup, and I think that it could go either way. Hopefully it goes Sally's way :lol:

GOOD LUCK :bounce:

Be great for Sally to score a win here. Sally is certainly match tough.

Bump!

Sally's been given another wildcard (ahead of Isabella :rolleyes:) into the main draw of Port Pirie this coming week...

Here's hoping she can win a match and jump up the rankings
