Anne Kremer playing $10k ITF... as a qualifier!!

Sorry if this has already been posted. I was just looking through the draw for $10k Wrexham and notcied that former top 20 player Anne Kremer is the top seed. She had play qualifying for the event, which she came through with relative ease. If I'm not mistaken this is her first match since the french open last year, looks like shes committed to carrying on with her career despite being 33 years old

The event also features British #6 Naomi Cavaday, also playing her first event back from injury. Quite an impressive line up for a $10k

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

she will also play 10,000$ Grenoble next week. I think its good that she starts to play smaller events now. She needs the practice. Some other former top 100 players like Laine and Schaul are also playing 10,000$ satellites.

This just made my day Glad to see Anne is back, now here's hoping she can stay healthy and make one more good run of things

So happy to see you playing again Anne!

Agassi once called some othe rplayers journey men. Kremer is the personification of a journey woman on the WTA. But she must love it to keep on trucking like this.

Well, she's been as high as #18 in the world in singles, and she's had wins in her career over Pierce, Seles, Sanchez-Vicario, Clijsters, Mauresmo, all of whom were top 10 at the time except Kim (who was #12). If that's what we call a journeywoman these days, I'd kill for that kind of career

Anne is considerably more than a journeywoman.

Am glad that she hasn't thrown in the towel yet Hopefully she can do well in these $10Ks and then quickly take it to a higher level.

Naomi Cavaday will beat her anyway

No good to see Anne back. Suprised really knowing that shes 33. She must still love the game.

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Re: Anne Kremer playing $10k ITF... as a qualifier!!

'Anne is considerably more than a journeywoman.'

She first hit the ITF circuit in 1991. She has made appearances at about 31 Grand Slams. She has managed to reach the 3rd round only 3 times. The rest is split pretty evenly between 1st and 2nd round exits. She has earned in nearly 20 years on the Tour $1.4m. Less than an accountant or teacher. And they wont have paid all the expenses that go with dragging yourself from tournament to tournament for all that time. She has only had 1 appearance in the top 30 end of season rankings. They are:

2008-264 ; 2007-85 ; 2006-142 ; 2005-166 ; 2004-94 ; 2003-389 ; 2002-25 ; 2001-33 ; 2000-35 ; 1999-31 ; 1998-74 ; 1997-129 ; 1996-123 ; 1995-231 ; 1994-248 ; 1992-776

Now if these stats aren't those of a journey woman trucking herself around the Tour for nearly 20 years I don't know what is!! And even if you don't think she is a journey woman, they are definitely not the stats of someone who is considerably more!!
