So Ski Boots draws Snot Rocket in the first round. That's just harsh. Word is that The Rocket was offered a main draw wild card but refused it, opting to qualify instead so she could get a few matches under belt. Hard core, yo.
Speaking of Boots, is she the new A-Rad? Avoiding all the big tournaments and playing the tiny ones? She played Auckland instead of Brisbane, Pattaya instead of Paris, and now Memphis instead of Dubai. Odd, no? And heck, if she gets booted (heh) in the first round by Dokic she'll have earned fewer points than she probably would have had she just played Dubai.
Hilariously they've got the US Fed Cup team in one quarter, with Melanie Oudin opening up against Jill Craybas. The Burrito is also in this quarter, which is anchored by Brit #1 AKO. Could be fun.
The other half of the draw is anchored by Vika and Sabine. Could it be that in 2-3 years Vika and Caro will be anchoring Premier draws? These two are bound to keep bumping into each other and they both have the potential to win Slams. That could be fun.
And what's this? Alexandra Stevenson got a WC into this tournament? Have fun, crazy girl!
