yeah - nice article!
there was an article in "ha'aretz" (the left-wing newspaper in Israel, very much associated with the higher class, thus very much full of bla-bla bullshit, but the only one where tennis get's whole papers!) that said that israeli women are to be granted 80 million shekels (arround 18 million $) for the next 8 years, of that some to elite players.
i think this could give tennis a big boost, as it is one of the strongest we have for our women after Judo, Swimming and sailing. maybe even better then some, but i might have forgotten somethin else.
anyway - this is really good news! i hope tzipi will recieve a nice grant and play for at least one more year. same goes for smashnova, though she can do fine with her prize money too, usually.
plus - if younger girls will reicieve enough funding to go and compete in near-by countries, it might be really great!
things are looking bright this year!
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
