Just read that Christine Wheeler beat Amy Frazier 6-1 6-1 at Sea Island. What a win!!

I think she plays Mattek next in the semis so fingers crossed she takes advantage of an opportunity that she, herself has created! After that, a shot at playing Sharapova or Kournikova in the final.

A very convincing win :) First top 50 win since beating Panova at Gold Coast 2 years ago? (Anna was ranked lower when Christina beat her in Paris last year)

Mattek is a tough cookie, but Christina's confidence must be sky high so she has a good chance of beating her, although it's not a given by any means.

Nice juicy bonus points here :drool: Which means she has now defended almost half her Paris points this week...which should make things a little easier for her, rankings wise :)

p.s - who do ya think she was first on the phone too? ;)

As I recall, she's the older half of a "sister act", (like Evie and "Daniella with 2 el's"). Ow's the kid sis of each been doin inda junyers, esp. vs. Olivia? (I haven't had time to track 'em like normal, been workin on that stage version of Crocodile Dundee). ;)

loulou got it in one ;)

Postcard...I'm sure she called her mum too ;)

rd...I haven't checked either lately...but Daniella has been doing OK. Maria is in no way at their level so I doubt she would have played either Dani or Olivia much. But Dani seems to have the wood over Olivia in junior comp.

Both Christina and Maria are tiny :eek: I havent seen Maria play but she looks around 10 (she is 14), just like older sis looks like a young teen (she is 21). lol

She is into the final now :D

Takes on Sharapova...good luck Chris!

Great result this week, it's been about 2 years from memory since an Aussie reached the final of an overseas challenger!

Wheeler lost 6-4 6-3 :(

Good week for her though. Hope she's gained a lot more confidence which will see her in good stead for Roland Garros

:cool: christina and lisa mcshea also lost in the doubles final so a great week for her and hopefully her confidence will continue this week in charlottesville $25k event where she is third seed and in first round plays gabriella volekova(svk) and in doubles this week with Julie Ditty of the us where they are seeded second and play a pair of qualifiers i have never heard of in the first round

i dont see her losing before semis where she might play 1-anna k but could have a tough one in quaters against 5-osterloh and in final would probably play brandi as second seed mattek lost first round

good luck christina :hearts: :lick:

Christina is now in the final after a tough 3 set semi win against Skavronskaia.

She'll play Brandi. This match may just go all day! lol

Combining her Sea Island points with here, she should make around 145 in the ranks (in a weeks time). If she wins the final than somewhere around 140. Way to go girl :)

Good to see that a good couple of weeks will propel Christina up the rankings. Let's hope she gets a good draw at the FO and can win at least one round.

i agree vicky hope she gets a good draw then can cause an upset against a lower ranked seed and get into third round which would just about get her into top 100 or around abouts and a chance for direct at wimbledon

she certainly is running hot at the moment although it is at 25k challenger events french open is completely different story
