4 British Women in Australian Open Main Draw

Melanie South, Katie O'Brien, Elena Baltacha and Anne Keothavong have all made the Australian main draw, it's the time 4 British players were in a Grand Slam main draw since 1992! This is such good news but knowing Britain it'll probably only grace a corner section of a local newspaper.
South will face Bartoli first so sadly I think she is slightly "doomed". O'Brien has Monica Niculescu to compete with, her highest ranking was No.47 but she hasn't really made an impact at the Aussies. As I said before Keothavong has Chakvetadze, there could possibly be an upset. Whilst Baltacha has Anna Lena Groenefeld which will be a difficult opponent.
