Lightbulb Anna Wishink

This is a new thread for Anna Wishink who seems to have made some great progress over the past few months. After competing in the 18s Nationals at the end of 2007 (if which she failed to win a match), the 18 year old competed in qualifying at the Morilla Hobart International. She fell, 7-6 6-3 to Sheng-Nan Sun of China in the first round. Better for the experience, Wishink headed back to the ITF Women's Circuit and qualified for her first 25k in Mildura. In the first round she thrashed Remi Tezuka 6-1 6-2 before losing to Nicole Kriz 1-6 7-6 7-5. She again made the final round of qualifying in Renmark, but suffered an injury and had to withdraw.

She has since travelled to New Zealand, and after failing to register any points at the Wellington 10k, she qualified for and progressed through to the semi final stage of the Hamilton 10k with some good wins. As a result, Wishink will debut on the WTA Tour Rankings on the 17th of March at around 828. She plays Kai Vano in the semi finals tomorrow. She has also been awarded a wildcard into the main draw of the Kalgoorlie 25k commencing on Monday.

Let's hope she can continue to play at this level and reach the top 500 by year's end

Huge past couple of tournies for Anna. Great to see her in the rankings when these points are added. To make the final of an ITF so soon is awesome.
Apparently she & Janelle Cuthbertson have huge serves, they serve at least an ace per service game.....

Re: Anna Wishink Cheering Thread

http://tennisnz.com/Article.aspx?Mode=1&ID=1457:
Kai Vano won the first set of her semi 7-5 was down in the second but fought back to be at 4-4 before dropping the set 4-6 and in the third set led 3-1 over the 18-year-old Anna Wishink who had improved rapidly throughout the tournament.

However despite her powerful groundstrokes and winners, there were too many errors from Vano who let the next six games go to drop the set and the match 6-3.

The final will be a first for Wishink who appears to be a good athlete and has played the last two weeks with no help from an Australian coach despite most other players from her country having one.

Re: Anna Wishink Cheering Thread

Just have to say that's a very respectable scoreline from Anna, a great week from her (noone would have predicted her to make the final!). Can't wait to see her on tv soon

Re: Anna Wishink Cheering Thread

Well done to Anna. Very promising too. I am a bit concerned about the lack of coaching though.
