Movie like story - Celine Beigbeder

I hope someone fills in on this one. Happened circa 2001-2003

Rise and fall of Celine.

She was playing instructor at local club. Someone was impressed and lured her into local 10K tournament. That she won easily. Then she played another. And destroyed the field. In 2002 she played in three Slams. Wild carded at least twice.

She is two time quarterfinalist in WTA tournament. Bogota 2002. Had to beat Romy Farah and Alena Nesticka to reach that stage She repeated that feat in Palermo later that year. Beating couple locals. Flavia Pennetta and Gloria Pizzichini. In quarts Paola Suarez beat her in tight three setter. After that tournament she practically retired

Re: Movie like story - Celine Beigbeder

she laso reach the semis in Strasbourg at the time

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

She was secretary in her club Biarritz olympique, very famous in rugby union : http://www.fft.fr/archives/evenement...dition2001.htm

Of course, she won first of all 2 ITF. But her success story started in Strasbourg when she reached semi final and entered top 100.

The only thing I think about her is that b*tch stopped Kelly Liggan from qualifying for the Aus Open a few years ago (she she's a lovely lady though)

Palaversic Coopersmith must be one of the scariest looking players ever playing in the WTA Tour

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
