Fabulous Draw for Houston 125K

I canít remember a more interesting and eclectic draw for a 125K tournament.

(1) Top Seed: Danielle Collins

Will her recently diagnosed arthritis prevent the 2019 AO semifinalist from screaming at her opponents?

(2) Second Seed: Taylor Townsend

Finally able to put down the Doritos and the Instagram score settling to score a cheap Greyhound bus fare to Houston!

First tournament entered since the US Open

(3) Wild Card: Coco Vandeweghe

Can she still play tennis at a high level or will she go full Jack Sock (no ranking)?

(4) Wild Card: Bethanie Mattek-Sands

Every US tournament gives the colorful BMS a singles wild card, why should a lowly 125k be the exception to the rule?

(5) Odd Ball Celebrity Entrants

Eugenie Bouchard and Mari Osaka.

Rising US Stars

Catherine McNally (seeded 8th) and Whitney Osuigwe (seeded 9th)


Should be quite a tournament!

Re: Fabulous Draw for Houston 125K

Not bad I agree - at least we have SOMETHING next week to keep us a little entertained during what I think is going to feel like a very long off season.

Itís still 8 weeks Monday until the new season formally starts (excluding qualies) - itís too long imo.

Man I think Coco could hold her own against anyone. She reminds me of Ronda Rousey

Wait, so Monday is going to be 27 degrees and Tuesday 8 degrees? That's quite a difference...

Collins or TT for the win!

Venus Masha Caro Sloane
