My comments:

Laura Pous Tio:
She was n°155 at the end of 2004, she's know a solid member of the top 100. She's this week up 13 spots from her previous best ranking by winning Cueno 50 K$ challenger as n°2 seed of the draw. She seems to be a real clay court specialist. Considering her ranking now, she should definitely quit the challenger circuit and compete on the WTA tour.

Hana Sromova:
Sometimes, you've to be patient to do your best...that moto suits very well to Hana. She's been up closed to 100 places in the ranking since the end of last year. Step by step, she's getting closer to the Top 100. Will she be able to break it?? the age of 27!
This week, she's up 8 places and 6 places from her former best ranking. She reached the Semis in Cueno 50 K$ Challenger upsetting the 3 seed/n°112 Ekaterina Bychkova before loosing to Conchita Martinez Granados (former n°66)

*Carly Gullickson:
I put Carly on my comments not because of her last week results but because I forgot to list her last week! She was up 27 spots and broke the Top 200 (from n°214 to n°187) thanks to very goog perfs in Los Gatos 50 K$ challenger: runner up at Los Gatos 50 K$ challenger, she outsed 2 seeded player (3 seed/n°126 Varvara Lepchenko and 7 seed/n°186 Ryoko Fuda).
Sorry for that forgetting!

Laurita She's doing a great season but I think that she should play more WTA because she plays really well to continue in the challenger tournaments
