The LTA and Naiktha Bains


I wouldn't be assuming that even if Naiktha gets into the top 200 there is a Wimbledon MD WC coming her way this year.

In the new rankings today, the WTA has Bains confirmed as the British #6 player at WR 253. I guess that's it then for now... until she switches back again. I wonder if we will here the reasons some time for the switch back to GB allegiance after all these years? As speculated earlier, presumably it is to do with relationships with Australian tennis authorities, which if is the case, means that bridges have been burned at both ends. I guess this story will run a bit over the grass court season, for now Naiktha is taking to clay in Italy.

Overall Naiktha is :

Singles WR 253 (216 points). GB #6
Singles race #162 (102 points), GB #4
Doubles WR 143 (508 points), GB #6

She does like a tournament or two, having 32 singles counters as compared to the most by Brits - Heather 26 and Katie B 25 ( though both planned on having one more after last week ). The other leading Brits are in the low 20s for counters.

 This singles ranking is also a CH for Naiktha, owing to her recent 25k grass court win at Mildura - where Gabi won last year.

Just saw that. WC for Compson as well, which seems random, but assume she has links.

Decent enough draw for Fran.

Could have sworn there was an individual Naiktha thread in the players section, but seemingly not - perhaps this thread could be moved there?

I see Naiktha has been training at Roehampton this week.

Naiktha certainly does have an Individual Player thread

Good thinking.

Re Naiktha and Jan, saying they are confirmed as eligible for GB selection and also to be considered for wild cards etc

 Well they shouldn't be in my view - certainly not for main draw wc's whatever their ranking.

I see Bains had got into QD on her own merit. Good that the WC committee didn't have to make that decision.
