Realistically, by the end of the season where do you think that these 2 British tennis girls will see their singles (and doubles) rankings? Both are on the way up but how far up the rankings ladder will they be come the end of December?
Sarah Borwell: 427 with 36.50 points
Amanda Janes: 626 with 15.75 points (and going up after Bournemouth )
Apparently it was Jo Moore who refuses to come and play tournaments so hopefully both Amanda & Sarah will get Wimbledon Qualifying Wildcards. I think that Sarah will be insane if she decides not to partcipate in the British grass court season!!!! But I'm sure and hoping she will
I think that it may have benefitted Amanda's ranking if she had entered the same Aussie tournaments as Sarah earlier in the year. Anyway she seems to be having better luck than Sarah on clay!
Far as I remember from seeing Janes a few years back - a pretty useful serve, with good volleys and slightly suspect groundstrokes (though obv improved given recent exploits on clay), and with Borwell - never seen her play - but have read that has a decent serve with a great forehand.
Well they've both had brilliant starts to the grass court season! In Surbiton qualies frist round they both lost. Sarah lost 6-0 6-2 to Kristini Brandi (1) and Amanda lost 1-6 6-3 6-4 to Lilia Osterloh. Not a bad showing from Amanda and I'm sure that if she gets a wildcard for Birmongham she'll be better prepared for higher ranked opposition on grass I just wish she'd be able to win these tight 3 set matches against higher ranked players
