Bye Bye Eastbourne

WTA EASTBOURNE 2002
KOURNIKOVA, DOKIC AND PIERCE PREPARE FOR WIMBLEDON, LIVE ON BRITISH
EUROSPORT

With Wimbledon fast approaching, the stars of the tennis world flock to
Eastbourne on 17th June to compete in the Britannic Asset Management
International Championships. The event will be brought to viewers
exclusively live on British Eurosport.

Despite the withdrawal of defending champion Lindsay Davenport due to a
long-term injury, the south coast will be playing host to a number of top
female players looking to get in some valuable grass court practice ahead of
Wimbledon.


Tournament organisers have announced confirmed entries from 'Glamour Girl',
Anna Kournikova, former French and US Open Champion Mary Pierce, and 2000
Wimbledon semi-finalist Jelena Dokic. In Davenport's absence, Dokic should
be the favourite but grass is not her favoured surface.

There are plenty of other top names to look out for: Sandrine Testud seems
to like grass and Silvia Farina Elia certainly has the shots to excel on
this surface. Meanwhile young Daniela Hantuchova will be looking to
rediscover her early season form, and will be hoping her British coach,
Nigel Sears, can spur her to perform well on Eastbourne's famous lawns.

British Eurosport's Eastbourne schedule

Thursday June 20th: 13.30 to 17:00
Friday June 21st: 13.30 to 15.45; 17.00 to 18.00
Saturday June 22nd: 20.00 to 21.00

All of the results, features, and player interviews will also be on
www.eurosport.co.uk and Eurosportnews.

im not sure where he got this from, but he's usually very reliable and up-to-date. im so sad that lindsay has definitely withdrawn - has anyone actually confirmed this w/ the WTA or w/ the tournament?

Strange how some people (Wertheim) said she is ready and feeling great and then I think it was Pam or Mary Jo that said her injury wasn't healing as fast as she had hoped. Get WELL Lindsay!

ahm... the eastbourne website doesn't say anything about Lindsay withdrawing, and it does mention Kournikova entering, so it has been updated... I don't know what to think anymore.

It wouldn't surprise me if Lindsay has withdrawn, but there's been no official announcement here in the UK

Presumably Arantxa has withdrawn too? That's a shameif it's correct about Davenport, as it means we won't see Corina in the doubles either.

Didn't Corina already withdraw? I thought I had read that she wouldn't be ready until the simmer hard court season.

I would imagine that the organisiers will surely be the 1st to know if Lindsay withdraws from this event. We will just have to wait & see what happens.

In the world you are just 1 person, but to 1 person you are the world
