Week 6 - ITF W25 - Bath, Great Britain Hard


First time I've seen Jasmine. Looks a good prospect on the bit I've seen

Sonay won convincingly, 6-2 6-0, against Talia


That incidentally was the final this week in Birmingham last year when Sonay won in 3 sets.

Talia thus will drop 30 of her existing 70 ranking points. Sonay is defending 50 points this week and a further 50 next week ( of her 330 points ) as she followed on by also winning the title in Glasgow.

Jasmine pegged back from *4-2 to *4-4 but steadies the ship for 5-4 and now 30-0*.

Nope. Good serving from Helmi saves her.

*5-5

There's no getting away from it - Jasmine gave that match away - it's a real shame - I think Nigel Sears (he's still her coach?) has to focus less on stroke construction and more on matchplay - coz that was really poor

Jasmine loses 7-5 in the third. Had points for 6-5*.

Gutsy effort but couldn't get it over the line. Some bad decisions at time (echoing CDs comments. She should have won it and just let it slip).

Em and Maia finally broke in their second set to serve for the match, but were broken to 15. They then get dragged back to set point down from *40-0 but get into the tiebreak against LJB and Stresnakova. 6-4 6-6*

Eden and partner down 3-6 *2-2

Emma and Maddie just underway.

That's Em played 2 tiebreaks and 4 MTBs this year, and lost them all

LJB and Stresnakova through on their third match point 4-6 7-6(4) 11-9

 

And Eden out in a MTB too

 Absolutely, she looked the better player. Not really sure how that one got away

 Has Sonay improved on last year and/or has Talia regressed?

Anyone else noticed they messed up the singles draw here and put the 4th seed in the bottom quarter, leaving seeds 7 and 8 in quarter 3?

 they have! How will they deal with that - say the 4th seed loses in QF to the 2nd seed?

Eden through to play Maia so guaranteed QF spot. Be interesting match up this, think Maia is the better overall player when fit. Cant really see Eden as anymore than where her ranking is but Maia has top 200 potential at least in there somewhere.

 Yes, will be interesting. I'd agree that Maia looks the long term better bet to possibly reach the top 200 but I'd go for Eden to win here.

And I could still see Eden progressing a fair bit further up the rankings. As quite a few folk have commented in recent years, after her earlier promise, her ranking plateaued outside the top 400 for a number of years  But she pushed up over 100 places last year so certainly found something.

Possibly a bit of both. I don't really know about Talia but she hasn't repeated such a week, a big breakthrough week for both at the time. I'd say Sonay is at least as good as last year, probably better now and although she has lost quite a lot of matches of late they are not bad losses. Guess it's just one match though.

So easy for Marni, 6-0 6-2. Pigato was poor and her game didn't strike me as one likely to have much success on faster indoor surfaces. Everything just sat up beautifully for Marni to blast away.

 

Alice lost 6-2 6-2, and Emma played pretty well in a 6-4 7-5 defeat.
