Awesome field!

Went last year. It was very well organized and the facility is great! Looking forward to going this year!

This is actually really strong! I think all of these players stands a good chance for qualifying (except Falconi IMO). I'm hoping for Keys though!

Hopefully they give Riske the last spot considering its indoors.

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

Is there a reason why they skipped over Pegula? Does she just want to try qualifying or they looked over her?

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

Really solid field. All of these girls, with the exception of Cohen and given her recent form, Falconi, have a really great shot at a win in the Maindraw. I would like to see that last TBA spot go to a talented junior... Townsend, Duval, or Crawford, preferably.

Interesting that Pegula and Min did not get chosen, but honestly, both are probably best served playing in the qualifying draw due to recent inconsistency.

Interesting that they follow the ranking except skiping Pegula

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

Pegula doesn't train with the USTA, does she? Prolly the reason why she's being looked over.

I hope the last spot goes to Townsend. She is skipping Orange Bowl which is around the same week with this play-off. I wonder whether USTA will snub the #1 jr player again.

Maria Sanchez, Julia Cohen, Mallory Burdette, and Irina Falconi don't either though, do they? I know Sanchez doesn't, and until recently Burdette was a college student so she doesn't either. I believe Falconi and Cohen have private coaches.

Falconi trains in Atlanta. I believe Burdette is in Florida training with some USTA help but im not sure.

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

Gibbs? Is she planning on going to Australia, has she definitely gone pro.
Anyway I suspect Keys starts as favourite. But it really is anyone's game.
Mattek-Sands is the best player but her form will be questionable.
Sanchez has really rocketed this year so could be hers.
To be honest those that don't make are more than capable of qualifying.

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

Love the field, glad they are still giving Julia and Glatch a go still after good years.
V v surprized they didn't include Min and Townsend (who will have a QD WC anyway. Min not getting much love (no WC @ US Open) form USTA.
Scholl, Gibbs & Pegula unlucky too. Maybe Rogers could have got an invite>
Depsite winning paly offs a few times, clear Brengle is defo on the outter., Guess she hasn't improved much. Same with Riske.
