Re: The Discovery Thread

Wow Priscilla

Nice revenge for the doubles loss to Teichmann earlier in the day. This will take her into the top 50 for the first time and past Tomic to become our top ranked junior. Interesting to see how high she can get by the end of the year.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Sara and Priscilla will be really close in the rankings now, their development has been really interesting. It seems when one is up, the other is down. Priscilla has always had the wood over Sara in nationals, but Sara has been much more hyped. Definitely will make a killer junior fed cup team next year.

Sara only hyped because of her surname, imo Priscilla is much better. Is this the highest ranked juniors weve had in a while?

I'm not sure I'd say MUCH better, but yes I'd say Priscilla is better. Sara is a prospect as well though.

Yeah Sara and Priscilla are the highest ranked juniors we've had since I'd say Barty. Perez peaked at around 60. I don't remember any other than that.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Ranking good for juniors level sure, but watching them play is kinda boring... looking for more spark and hitters of the ball, will need that by age 18-22 if going up against WTA 150-250.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Sure, kinda hard to explain. Say compare to watching matches at that age and into the next band for players like; Safarova, Kvitova, Safina, Pavulchenkova, Vika, Clijsters, Stosur. More recent examples (pipeline) Gavrilova, Dushvina, Burdette. Then compare to watching matches say with King, Woz, Radwanska, Myskina. And something different again in Bartoli. From a spectator (tennis fan) perspective where you pay decent money to see up front. I guess we all see different things, its a great tactical sport.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Osaka GA

R1: Cabrera d. (wc)Tomic(SRB) 75 67(5) 62
R1: Inglis lt. (5)Sun(CHN) 26 26
R1: Yamada lt. (13)You(CHN) 06 16
R1: (7)Tomic lt. Kobayashi(JPN) 46 06
R1: (10)Hon d. Taylor(GBR) 64 63
R1: Tjandramulia d. Ottomano(SUI) 36 64 62
R1: Birrell d. (wc)Kakuya(JPN) 67(5) 64 63

Great results for the girls here bad draws for Steph and Maddi Sara

Good results in doubles too (only Sara lost but they lost to Kim/Maddi)

R1: Hon/Ottomano(SUI) d. (1)Flink(RUS)/Steffensen(USA) 46 63 10-5
R1: Cabrera/Geukens(BEL) d. Fukuda(JPN)/Tachibana(JPN) 76(6) 75
R1: (7)Okamura(JPN)/Tjandramulia d. Mukai(JPN)/Usui(JPN) 75 60
R1: Tanpoco(PHI)/Yamada d. Fujiwara(JPN)/Otsuka(JPN) 63 61
R1: Birell/Inglis d. (2)Jorovic(SRB)/Tomic 75 57 10-8

R2 lineups

R2: Cabrera v Chang(TPE)
R2: (10)Hon v (Q)Tachibana
R2: Tjandramulia v Ohya(JPN)
R2: Birrell v (16)Geukens(BEL)

The ITF is being really stupid lately and the results go missing and stuff so I can't see the R2 lineup for doubles..

Olivia Good wins there for Priscilla and Kim
Lizette atleast her form seems to be coming back...

QF: (10)Hon v (4)Jorovic(SRB)
QF: Birrell v (9)Steffensen(USA)

Two tough QFs for Priscilla and Kim there, but GL

I do think Hon has some x-factor like the first lot of gals you mentioned. Great hands, smooth movement, uniqueness.... she'll need to develop her intensity to become tour level. But I think she'll be one of those gals worth watching one day.

Great results at a GA event, good boost for the rankings which they will need for the aussie summer events!

Re: The Discovery Thread

Jorovic def. Hon 6-3 7-6(5)
Steffensen def. Birrell 7-5 7-6(3)

Nice fightback from Hon in the second set from 1-4 down, shame she couldn't grab the set. Dissapointing loss for Kim after serving for both sets and being 3-0 up in the TB. Successful week all round for our girls with Hon moving further into the top 50, Birrell should sneak into the top 100 for the first time and Cabrera and Tjandramulia will be hovering just outside the top 100.

Re: The Discovery Thread

Yep talking to few at ATL final on weekend appears Hoang and Tredoux are giving up the Pro circuit and going to university next year. Not sure about others like Sumner and Te Tai. Did not see Hoang play, though saw Tredoux play on outside courts and inside arena and she looked pretty good. But I like that style of play anyway, she does go for it and strike the ball. Bit like watching some of the overseas qualifiers when they come, big strikes, top spin forehand, low flat finishing points. Also milks some points with slower variations. I saw her and the Sharks team about but was a bit too shy to go and say hi.
