US Update and ?'s.. Granville , Glatch & others...inj retired? What status?
Granville looked like she ame back form her injury but is missing again.
The great white hope Glatch had a purple patch in May-June last year but then went MIA. injured? given up?
Looks like Harkleroad will continue her tentative return this US summer, Ditty also trying to come back.
WTF is going on with Carly Gullickson.
Like I love her, watching ehr play and seeing her aournd the grounds of events she seems like an absolute sewatheart and hink she has a great game- she obvioulsy needs to get fitter, like Glatch, she had a real purple patch in Apr-June last year and I finally thought she woudl make a breakthrugh- maybe maturing a bit later like some other serve volleyers, she won the US Open mixed (wasa reserve WC for singles too, maybe highlighting some confidence the USTA had in her)but has done nothing great since last June. Anyone know what is happening? after playing crap she has gone MIA as well. Inj? No motivation? No longer playing? Any info woudl be great, I hope she comes back strong this US summer..
In regards to WC's for the US Open.....
I can't see any of these guys getting a WC for the MD.
Maybe for QD? Guess the USTA will wait till a few events occur in the summer (ITF and WTA) before comfirming anything
At this early stage I woudl guess
1. U 18 winner
4. S Stephens (reason: great spring, young)
5. C McHale (reason: seems to be a fav, given her lots of opp's)
6. A Riske (reason: Birmingham)
7. J Hampton (reason: great run on ITF's)
8. Depends on the U18 winner I think. USTA woudl be hanging for maybe S Rogers to win so they can give this one to Coco.
Other contenders may be Harkleroad- but I reckon they may give her a WC into QD.
Maybe Brengle- the old McHale- as in gave her everything.
QD WC's will obvilusy depend on the WC for MD but you'd say contenders woudl be Carly Gullickson (maybe I am hoping!!) Couts, Hsu, Cako, Ahn, Boserup, Muhammed maybe Albanese if she isnt there by herself.
I think the Un 18 finalist is also a sure thing? YEah?
You have to think a 30 year old -more retirements than hot breakkies-milked my famous dad story- 1999 wimby semifinalist- Alexandra Stevenson has done her dash
Again Doubles pair up's for WC's I'd loive to see (again depending on what happens to their rank over summer
1. Gullikson- Harkleroad
3. Couts -Albanese
5. Ahn- Muhammed
6. U 18 winners: (if not above)
