Welcome aboard bronco! :)

Just to clarify...only Stosur and McQuillan will be in qualies...the others missed the cut-off, which for slams is usually around 210 range. So the players ranked 300 have no chance at all ;)

My predictions

Pratt - Round 2. Hopefully gets an easy draw first up, but I dont see her winning 2 matches. Usually wins her first rounds in Paris.

Molik - Round 4. I'll go out on a limb and say she'll make the second week (provided she doesnt draw a huge name in the first couple of rounds)

Dominikovic - Round 1. Her nerves will get the better of her as she has big points to defend. She is in horrible form. I'd love to see her prove me wrong though :)

Wheeler - Round 1. She is in great form at the moment and if she gets a good draw she can certainly beat a lot of the players in the draw. But I have a feeling she'll get a dodgy draw.

McQuillan - Round 2 qualies.
Stosur - Round 2 qualies.
Both don't really like clay, and I don't expect too much from either of them here.

Thanks for the clarifacation but that really does suck this must be the lowest numbers of aussies in the draw ever

Pratt - 2nd round, not good on clay but will pull out a win first up and play a much higer ranked oppenent in the second round

Molik - 3rd/4th round, shown immense abillity on clay and havng a stellar year so far. Take out a lower seed on her way to a great showing

Dominikovic - 2nd round, draw a quailfier or wildcard first round and just win that but outclases in the seond round

Wheller - 3rd round, suprise many by winning 2 matches and beating a lower seed, took an Anna last year so anything is possible


Stosur - through quail - 3rd round, repeat her aussie open performance and win twice before metting a high seed

Mcquillan - fall in the final hurdle in quailfying

its a shame that no more make it in - hopefully (no menace intetn) a few players will get injured allowing a few more aussies in the draw

I hope Rachel McQuillan does well but I don't much expect her from here, though.

Nicole will draw her 'bunny' Ai Sugiyama and spank her again. She will then face her 'friend' ;) Christina Wheeler in the 2nd rnd. Christina leads by a set and a break, but the thought of beating Nicole becomes too much and she falls apart. Nicole will then, as usual, face Dechy and only grab 4 games.

Molik crushes Maleeva onto the fourth rnd but is beaten by Henin.

Evie's bad luck continues and gets one game off Serena Williams.

McQuillan doesn't win a round, Stosur gets to rnd 2.

Well . . . . . . . .

after that draw i might reassess things

Alicia - reckon 3rd round

Nicole - 1st

Christina - 2nd

Evie - 2nd

Very dull future for us with wimbledon quailies around the corner unless the few outside 250 get wins in a challenger i dont think any others will get into qualies there . . . . . . . .
