Talking Qualifers are not pushovers in Dubai !

(Qualifier 1)
(1)Marion Bartoli vs Silvia Talaja
Galina Voskoboeva vs Nicole Pratt

(Qualifier 2)
(2)Vera Douchevina vs Libuse Prusova
(8)Ana Ivanovic vs Maria Kirilenko

(Qualifier 3)
(3)Samantha Stosur vs Cara Black or Tatiana Panova
(5)Na Li vs Anca Barna

(Qualifer 4)
(4)Maria Elena Camerin vs Jie Zheng
(6)Maria Vento-Kabchi vs Virginia Ruano Pascual

Out of these 17 ladies, only four can qualify.

In fact, from the way I see it, the standard of the qualifiers are very strong and good. This is not a surprise given the tough main draw.

But when 4 of these ladies qualify, it'll make the draw even more competitive.. Dubai's gonna be very exciting this week!!

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

@ the Qualifier 2 field

Douchevina, Ivanovic and Kirilenko battle it out for the 1 spot

Qualifier 1 & 4 are the easy one compare to Q2 and Q3 fields

ana and maria have to eliminate one another, this also has a making of a slam final one of these days (and it is not in the too distant furure) even as early as 2006

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Yep, was just thinking the same. Kirilenko vs. Ivanovic? It would be totally ok for me to see this match in a quarterfinal of a Tier I...so...
