Curious about the Top 10 players from Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory. If anyone can do a Top 10 list for Northern Territory and Tasmania, that'd be great.
I'm from WA, so I can do a Top 10 list of Sandgropers.
This is just in the order of my opinion and based on their NTPR's. WA doesn't have a lot of pro players, but there are a lot of really good State Grade pennant players.
01 Jaymon CRABB (ATP)
02 Mark HLAWATY (ATP, State Grade)
03 James SEKULOV (ATP, State Grade)
04 Darren PATTEN (former ITF, State Grade)
05 Hayden GIBSON (former ITF, State Grade)
06 Ashley DYER (State Grade)
07 David CULLEY (TCA Coach, State Grade)
08 Brett PATTEN (State Grade)
09 Kurt ROBINSON (TCA Coach, State Grade)
10 Strahinja BOBUSIC (US College, State Grade)
01 Siobahn DRAKE-BROCKMAN (former WTA, State Grade) *
02 Casey DELLACQUA (WTA, ITF, State Grade)
03 Nicole SEWELL (ITF, State Grade)
04 Angela GREEN (TCA Coach, former US College, State Grade)
05 Sarah STANLEY (former ITF, former junior ITF, State Grade)
06 Bojana BOBUSIC (junior ITF, State Grade)
07 Julia DZIEDZIC (ITF, State Grade)
08 Nikki SARGINSON (State Grade)
09 Vanya KELLEHER (State Grade)
10 Marinela ANTONIC (ITF, State Grade)
If you run out of professional players as you compile your list, go on to State Grade pennant players, followed by the top juniors, and so on.
* Siobahn Drake-Brockman still kicks the butt of the girls currently playing on the ITF and WTA tours.
