Re: 2013 Australian Open Wild Card playoffs

Yeah, if Madison maintains the form that won her two end of season ITFs, she should win this pretty easily. It will be interesting to see if Maria learned anything in the Phoenix final, or if Beth's experience can show through. Should be some interesting matches.

Yeah, but it's not that surprising that a lot of the contestants are older-ish. Hopefully the youngsters are aiming for the qualies, which would be a better route for them to take, more points and experience.

Re: 2013 Australian Open Wild Card playoffs

So over Cohen getting a chance to play this....her game is just awful....would have much rather seen Pegula or Min get the opportunity to try for the WC. Kind of surprised Riske is in too...she's been falling off lately.

Re: 2013 Australian Open Wild Card playoffs

Pegula turned it down, I don't know why Min isn't playing. Especially it being in Atlanta

Former USC standout Maria Sanchez has been forced to withdraw from this week’s USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoff, citing precautionary reasons related to knee tendinitis, Tennis Grandstand reports.
She's replaced by Min.
