Just thought I would set up a cheering thread for the Scottish girls. I still love the other British girls too, but the Scots have something special! So please post any updates you have in relation to:
Elena Baltacha, Karen Paterson, Lyndsay Reilly, Kirsty McRae, Mhari Neish, Frances Hendry, Mhari Brown, Nicola Allan, Liana Park, Susannah Roy, Sarah McFadyen, Nicola Slater, Heather Lockhart, Jenna Cockburn or any other Scottish player!

Nice move for Karen this week, just outside top 400. Surely a good run in Nottingham will correct this!

Nottingham $25K

Q1: Florence Haring (FRA) d. Karen Paterson (GBR) 2-6 7-5 7-6(5) :sad:
Q1: Ilke Gers (NZL) d. Lyndsay Reilly (GBR) 6-2 6-4 :sad:

Terrible week, Karen really should have won that one. Bit of an anticlimax after Glasgow and Jersey, but hey! You can't win them all.


Monica_Rules: Karen started the year in around 650-700, so its a great climb. You can see the progression of all the Scots players on TennisScotland.org

linzi changed her schedule this year, staying in britain over the summer, it really hasn't paid off. hopefully next year she will spend the summer on the us/canadian hardcourt challengers and pick up a few wins, she's much better than 1028 in the world, she just needs to find some consistency.

$10K Pune, India

Karen Paterson has won two round, and plays Chantal Coombs in the quarters! :)

On a side note Karen lost to Akgul Amanmuradova in the first round of $25K Mumbai last week :(

I am led to believe that Elena returns in December to play British Tour Events :)

Karen beat Cahntal in straight sets, and does play Akgul in the semi's. Hopefully she can get revenge for last weeks defeat ;)

Good Luck Karen :D

Karen lost 62 75 :sad:

but a good weeks, and another few points, thats Tipton and Hull from the beginning of last year saved already, so she can rest asssured she'll stay in the top 500 until she has another chunk of points coming off in May.
