Re: Aussie Wildcard Play-Off. Dec 14-19.
Molik, Ferguson, Dokic, and Peers seem like very obvious locks for main draw WC's, unless someone else pulls off some big surprises during the first or second week of the Aussie circuit.
Qualifying, I'd probably go with:
1. Jessica Moore
2. Tammi Patterson
3. Sophie Letcher
4. Viktorija Rajicic
5. Monika Wejnert
6. Marija Mirkovic
7. Alison Bai
8. Isabella Holland
Hopper had a pretty dismal result at the WC playoff, and truthfully her only decent win this year came over Jessica Moore. Other than that, she hasn't shown the kind of results that suggest she's ready to take on top 200 players.
Sumner seems to have Wejnert's number, but other than that she hasn't done much either.
Mirkovic, Holland, and Bai are all girls who seem to have been around forever even though they're all still pretty young. Might be the last chance for all 3 of them, unless they show signs that they are going to progress as they've all stalled a bit.
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But he loves you."
