Anne should. The Oz Open is usually the 2nd weakest after Us Open in terms of qualy cut-off, although in fairness the US Field is larger.

The reason is that its a very expensive place to travel, and many girls wont go as it isnt nevesarily benificial to turn up and loose in qualy round 1.

If Jane had managed to get to the very latter stages of the Oz 25k's she might of sneaked in, but i strongly doubt she will now.

Julie really should of beat Yi :sad: she was so close. Can't see her ever repeating that again though :(

lol, no disrespect to Anne but i'm expecting her to get thumped ;)

Lucie NEEDS to do well. She has 33 points from last year, plus another 10 from Canberra the week before, so if she has 2 losses she could slip to about 280!!!! :eek:

ALL OF THEM IN OZ OPEN?

Elena got WC for MD...Anne got WC for qualifying round...I guess, Julie and Lucie will go through qualif...It will be great to see encounter btw Elena or Julie or Lucie against Angie from INDONESIA in MD...Angie has won twice vs Elena in junior level...so, it will be great to see how they play in senior level...Angie lost to Julie in Birmingham this year and Angie has won twice vs Lucie...Or maybe this time Angie vs Anne...

Anyway, best of luck for 4 of U!:) :cool: :D :wavey: :wavey: :wavey:

Well they've all played matches now, and Lucie and Julie seem to be playing reasonably well. Anne played well too, as has Bally with some tough draws.

in 3 days we'll know who Looby-Loo, Jules and Kothy are playing!! :D
