Christina McHale
 
Time for Christina to get her own thread. :)

She just won the USTA WC play-off with a 61 60 win over Gail Brodsky, so we will see her in the main draw of the Aussie Open. :eek: Have a nice rest now Christina.

Finally a new american that we can believe in. Everybody's been talking about Coco, but Chrissie(yeah that's rights I said it)just beat her in straight sets along with the other young Talents. She even got a win over Vania King whose been as high as 50 in the world. Anyone feel free to post pics and information about Christina because I don't even know what she looks like.:bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce: Hope fully she gets Kuzzzie or somebody easy first round!!

Christina's run to the Orange Bowl F has secured her a direct entry in the junior Australian Open so we will be seeing lots of her during the fortnight. ;)

Christina. :bounce:

Seems like she is eclipsing her sister. ;) The second girl from the right is also beast. Actually all of them in that second picture are beast. :p I can see them all becoming pro but I've seen them play and she is very, very good. :)

Who is in that picture? :o I don't recognize hardly any of them.

Can you give us more information on how she plays? I have read that she is a really scrappy fighter but the videos I have watched of her she seems to hit quite flat and I don't see the two styles meshing well together...

The second girl from the right is Shinann Featherston and the girl next to her is Lindsay Clark. ;) I remembered that Shinann won a Grade 5 event in Ireland against a McHale but I looked it up and she beat Lauren and not Christina in the finals. :p

Yeah, she is a very scrappy player, I didn't get to watch her much so I can't really comment on Christina. But I'm very surprised that she has made this much success so quickly. :eek: I was impressed but I thought CoCo, Asia, etc were better prospects. But I can't wait to see follow her results in the Australian season! :D

She is in MD of AO against Aussie WC Jessica Moore. Tough match indeed, but she has a very good chance to win.

One of the best first round match ups she could have asked for. Win it Christina :armed:

Re: Christina McHale
 
Good luck Christina. :D She has no home crowd pressure or anything so I hope she goes out there and does herself justice. This is a winnable match!
