Definitely the forehand. Serve will be big once she gets a bit older. She's a lot bigger and stronger than most 13 year olds though.

I don't fully understand this because, through accepting a wildcard into the US Open qualifying, I read it as Barty being ineligible for anymore Grand Slam wildcards until she turns 16...is this outdated? Also it would mean she can't play Brisbane (main draw or qualifying) because it is not a WTA International Event.

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Olivia won Yah. Good final, happy with either winning.

Bojana throwing her racquet out of the court after losing match point.

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Rogowska def. Bobusic 6-4 7-5

I think we have a great final on our hands

Liv is actually in her fourth AO Playoff final having also reached the 2008 (lt Wheeler 6-0 6-4), 2010 (lt Dellacqua 1-6 7-6 6-3) and 2011 (def Dokic 1-6 7-6 6-3) finals.

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

10 events is good, I thought it was 6 So it'll probably be 3 in January, another 3 in the other slams possibly, and 4 ITF's leading into the December Showdown next year? I think she's going to sky rocket this coming year. AER suck.

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

^^
She turns 16 in April, so the 10 events was only applicable from the date of her 15th birthday through to her 16th birthday. At the age of 16 she will be able to play 13 events between her 16th and 17th birthdays

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Liv vs. Ash final was what I was hoping for. Could go either way but I'm tiping Barty in three.

This Long girl seems to have come out of nowhere. Decent result for Beck, hopefully her injury isn't too serious.

Re: December Showdown & AO WC Playoff

Bobusic was one the players i really wanted to watch this week since i've never seen her play and she wasn't on court 6 all week. oh well, hopefully i'll get to see her on an outside court at the australia open!

i reckon Barty will just get up in the final but it'll be very close.

Ashleigh will not have a problem. In 2009, Robson(nee january,21st 1994) received a main draw wild card to Wimbledon, qualifying wild card to the US Open and 2010 australia open.

I think she can get a WC to Brisbane/Sydney, GS seem not to count in the limit.

It is probably because Grand Slam(run by the ITF) have the discretion to give WC to anyone. It is the same situation with the senior, the rules say only 3 main draw wild card per year but players have used a 4th at Grand Slam
