Auckland Entry List......Ladies

Post by rex » Nov Tue 26, 2019 5:17 pm

Bianca Andreescu (5)
Serena Williams (10)
Petra Matric (15)
Amanda Anisimova (24)
Julia Goerges (28)
Caroline Wozniacki (37)
Catherine Bellis (43)
Rebecca Peterseon (44)
Jelena Ostapenko (45)
Caroline Garcia (46
Alison Van Uytvanck (47)
Viktoria Kuzmova (52)
Svetlana Kuznetsova (54)
Carla Suárez Navarro (55)
Alizé Cornet (59)
Tamara Zidansek (63)
Lauren Davis (64)
Cori Gauff (68)
Daria Kasatkina (69)
Kirsten Flipkens (70)
Jil Teichmann (73)
Laura Siegemund (75)
Monica Puig (79)
Taylor Townsend (82)

Strong field for an International, the best Int'l event on the Tour, I might add. No easy matches for anyone. All it needs is Naomi and Venus to make it even better.

Surprised Venus didn't sign up. She's expressed a likeness for the Auckland.

Kasatkina has fallen. Surprised to see Amanda ranked higher than Wozniacki.

Let's see how Bianca copes with being the top seed and favorite.

Last week before te new season; that break was good, but now I am getting back in the mood.

Made a ye-top10 prediction for 2020 a while ago somewhere else and only placed Bianca at 4 or 5 as I see her as very injury-prone... seems it already starts.

Too bad the lst of the year is midweek, for this week the weather is decent for this event. However, for the 6th, the start of the Auckland for the ladies, the weather forecast is dismal, which appears to be the same for the gents the following week. Let's hope this changes.....

In the PGame: Last year winner was Jeff in Texas, now going for a third win in a row.

Together with Rex the only participant to win this event twice. First time that the event was played in the PGame was 2002!

Worst I've seen Cori play today v Siegemund. Tons of mistakes, poor execution and bad decision-making. Yet, it's a growth process for this talent. There will be other off days in her extremely promising career.....
