Re: For fans of Marina Erakovic, Sacha Jones, Ellen Barry and other kiwis
I think the biggest breakthrough for her this year would actually be qualifying into a Tier II event - in the past shes managed to often reach the 2nd and 3rd round of qualifying, but that tournament was the first one where she managed to hold her nerve and end up qualifying fairly easily.
If she has a reasonably qualifying draw at the Australian Open and manages to qualify then I'm pretty sure that she will be top 100 by this time next year.
Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.
