A quick glance at the Australian Open entry list

The Australian Open entry list is out, and there are a couple of surprises on it. Evgenia Linetskaya, who I understood was retiring from tennis (and I'm glad she isn't), is in the main draw. So is Elena Likhovtseva, who I thought might be retiring, and who may indeed retire next year.

Speaking of Russians--missing form the list is Vera Dushevina, who is injured.

Some talented players will be competing to qualify for the main draw. These include Yuliana Fedak, Ayumi Morita, Ahsha Rolle, and Zheng Jie, who is returning from a long injury layoff. Bethanie Mattek will also be trying to qualify; it has been a while now since she re-designed her game, so it will be interesting to see what 2008 brings.

Eight wild cards and twelve qualifiers will join the main draw in time.

is there any news on Amelie?

Diane said...

She's on the entry list for the AO, yes. And other than that, I haven't heard anything new, other than she is in training.

Do you know if there is going to be a US/Australia wild card trade deal like last year? And if so who do you think the lucky American will be?

Diane said...

That's a good question. I haven't heard anything about the swap, yet my guess is that it is still in effect. The first name that comes to my mind is Ahsha Rolle, but then, you'd think the tournament would have already issued such a wild card if one exists. If I find out, I'll post it.

Update--no wild cards are being given to anyone who does not compete for them.

на данный момент перестала искать мужчину для ответственных отношений, как принято говорить время придет-все будет. а вы согласны с этим утверждением? или же же наоборот, нужны искать собственного мужчину, не полагаясь на судьбу?
