Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Oh snap.

Sacha getting a barrage of attacks in the media this morning.

She made some very interesting comments in her press conference last night after her loss to Baltacha.

She said that the decision to deflect to Australia is not one that she has just made, she's been thinking about it for 5 years. (FIVE FUCKING YEARS?). All the while receiving WC's, funding and coaching from Tennis NZ. She should have done this when she was 16.

She also said it was just a matter of 'when' she would make the switch, not 'if'.

You are an absolute mole Sacha.

Ellen Barry retired last year due to the fact that she could not get any funding because all the money that Tennis NZ put aside to invest into players, went to Sacha Jones & Marina Erakovic. Barry could no longer afford to travel. Same with Kairangi Vano. - That's a direct quote from a former NZ professional on radio this morning.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Dear Sacha,

you have made the correct decision, just like the million other Kiwis who have come across to Oz seeking a better life.

Good luck in AO quallies next week (with an AUS next to your name!)

Dear Sacha

If you're going to be a true Aussie, you need to learn not to close to a Brit!

Cheers

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

I don't think anyone should be upset that she is now playing as an Aussie. As far as I am concerned we can share her, let's face it we are almost the one nation anyhow.

The fact is she was always Australian, the same as she will always be a Kiwi. Why does it matter? Can't we support players from both nations and claim the glory when they win?

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

Because Aus and NZ have agreed to joint custody. Th terms of the settlement requires that alternate tournaments she plays for the other nation.

Re: Sacha Jones now an Aussie

This is a mess. Jones becoming a martyr all of the sudden. It's totally understandable that she's burned all the bridges in NZ Obviously the Aussies don't give a damn about it
