Congrats to Tammi Patterson on her first WTA level win!
Hobart Q1: def. [wc]Janette Husarova 6-2 6-2.
Okay, so she beat an unranked veteran doubles specialist... BUT! She did it easy and in under an hour which is really good to see. Plus, it's her first win in eight attempts at playing at the WTA level.
She's had a pretty quiet couple of years (hence this thread disappeared into the vortex) but here's hoping 2013 might be a good one for her

Tammi's drawn Zuzana Ondraskova 1r AO qualies.
Ondraskova's a 32yo, former top 100 player who was out injured June 2011 till Feb 2012, playing here on a protected ranking. She's only won one match (25k qualies though) in her 6 tournaments since Feb 2012. She has no weapons, just a consistent game. Judging by her results last year, she can't be playing too consistently & the injury must be taking a while to get over. http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...yerid=20006514
If Tammi doesn't win this, then there's not much hope for her. Nice draw!
Good for Tammi. She is pulling out the wins in the big ones. I think the play offs win over Rogowska must have done a great deal for her confidence. Her game is beautiful to watch when the ball goes in.
