Focusing on Tamira Paszek

Hi guyz,

I'm a huge fan of Tamira Paszek.
Any news about her physical condition?
Injured? I’m asking for that coz she had great time at Wimbledon, from there on... only two matches played, she lost either of them.
I’m wondering if she’s healthy and what’s her level of confidence on the eve of the US Open.

Desperately seeking for a couple of answers.

Although you're a fan, it's always difficult to have all the information you need. for sure.

She is 16, so she is limited 13 Tournaments p. year by the WTA (age Rule).
Until now she played 11 this year. Iīve read here that some people believe GS-Tournamentīs donīt count
for the age rule - if this is right she could play 4 more but I didnīt find any clue therefore...

It would be nice if somebody here could clearly say who many Tournaments a 16 year old can play p. year?

However thatīs surely the main reason why she played only 1 Tournament this summer....

i'm sure playing GS doesn't count as long as you get in by your actual ranking.

Re: Focusing on Tamira Paszek

Well, it only counts if the player gets a WC into MD i think. Tamira came trough the qualies in Australia, in Paris and Wimbledon she got in by her ranking.

LOL. Apparently this same rule doesn't apply to the williamses?

What hypocrisy.

Re: Focusing on Tamira Paszek

i don't think she goes to Portoroz. if you look at her past tournaments, you will see she only plays in higher tiers this year.
