Re: Kiwi cheering thread

Sacha has been a qualifying draw wildcard, that makes two kiwis into the Aussie Open qualies for the first time in MANY years!

Re: Kiwi cheering thread

Marina has a very good chance of making the main draw and winning a match or 2 with a favourable draw.
I expect Sacha will get well and truly spanked however

Re: Kiwi cheering thread

Looking at the stats Sacha played truly horribly in the first set (21 unforced errors in only 7 games...wtf is that about!). But then it was a much tighter second set, Sacha has a number of breakpoint chances at 4-4 but was unable to convert and then got broken in her next game. Result: Sacha looses 6-1 6-4

Re: Kiwi cheering thread

I'm not even sure if Sacha will still be a seed, she hasn't played much juniors in recent times...

Re: Kiwi cheering thread

Sacha has far more ability that Marina! I saw most of her match vs Meng, and it was very very hot 40+ degrees. Meng just played a very smart match, and used her experience to get through. If the conditions had been cooler, it would have been closer. I can see Sacha having a much better career than Marina, she has a much bigger game and is very impressive for her age.

Re: Kiwi cheering thread

I disagree with that, and you have to remember that a large part of what turns top 300 players into top 100 players is the mental side of the game. There are very few players ranked in the top 100 who are mentally weak. Currently Sacha does need to work on her mental game....Marina's developed the goods (mind you she has a few years on Sacha)
