Tauziat to return to Edgbaston
Unclear if this means she'll play -although I bet she wont be able to resist a doubles entry- but she'll be there in an official capacity at least:
(from LTA weekly update)
Nathalie Tauziat, the former Wimbledon finalist and twice-winner of the DFS Classic tournament in Birmingham, is to make an emotional return to the Edgbaston Priory Club for this year’s event.
Nathalie, the 35-year-old Frenchwoman who has gone into coaching after earning around $7m in career prize money, will be a guest of honour at the pre-Wimbledon grass court tournament.
She has been invited to the tournament (June 9-15) as part of a unique link-up with Warwickshire LTA. Nathalie is already an honorary life member of the club and she invited youngsters from the county futures performance squad to France for a camp recently and will bring over youngsters from across the channel as part of a reciprocal agreement.
Tickets are now on sale for the DFS Classic, which offers top class action from leading stars on the women’s tour. Last year Jelena Dokic won the tournament and the organisers are expecting another high-class entry list in 2003. Ticket prices range from £6 on the first day to £15 for the final. Weekly passes are available, priced £50. Contact the ticket hotline on 0870 909 3015. Discounts for groups, LTA advantage members and senior citizens are on offer and a free junior ticket can be claimed at time of purchase when an adult ticket is bought.
