Re: Gb Girls

Good luck girls I would prefer it if Bally didn't get in as she would then have more time to prepare for the grass and not play one clay even in between the Korean harcourts and the British grass courts. Our girl needs a rest!

Re: Gb Girls

Pretty sticky draws for the British and Irish contingent in qualifying.

Anne Keothavong v Ayumi Morita
Katie O'Brien v Florence Haring
Mel South v Angelique Kerber
Sarah Borwell v Stephanie Dubois
Amanda Keen v Olga Savchuk
Kelly Liggan v Renata Voracova

Katie has clearly the best shot at a win. Anne is probably a favourite for her match though she's been pretty dodgy on form lately. Mel's draw is horrible - Kerber's not far off direct entry into the main draw. Sarah, Amanda and Kelly are all up against it too.

Tough tough draws girls. Hopefully, if Katie is in a position to win, she will be able to close it out this time
