    • He had been entered in the Oz juniors but no surprise he withdrew since he didn’t make the big boy qualifying.
      I see qualifying at the Maui Challenger the second week of the Oz Open. Polansky entered there as well (and Pospisil, who would only play if he’s eliminated in doubles here).

  1. really enjoy the attitude and body language of Genie…she imposed her will to a player who dictaded her pace normally…great stuff

  2. I watched part of Genie’s match last night. She looked pretty happy at the end. I’m so glad she won; she can use the boost.

    • Nice to see a positive comment. Big Genie fan- win or lose. She’s the best female Canadian!

      The other Brenda
