Amy has been playing ITFs in the USA and Canada but she is in poor form atm and hasn't won a match at any...although she did qualify for the the event in Granby...
She lost to Carol Zhao in the QR1 in Lexington ($50k) which is really disappointing, because Zhao isn't that great imo...
Kevin's report on the match:
Carol Zhao (CAN) d. Amy Bowtell (IRL) 64 36 63
Amy is tall with a big booming serve, but Carol was the more consistent player. I only saw bits and pieces of the first set, but if she beats Cako, she will qualify easily.
zhao is a top college player and former top junior who has just qualified for stanford where she attends college, so was a rough draw for Amy. She hasn't had the best of trips but hopefully her luck will change soon as then know what might happen?
yes let's hope she get some form soon. She's really struggled above 10k level. if she could get a good run going and some good draws it might give her confidence to believe that she can live with the better players.
Zhao has just won agin today btw!
