filipina tennis player arrives in botswana



lindsay anne sarile has arrived in gabrone, botswana to practice for the unity cup. she would play with jane wong in the doubles. the winner of the manila challenger a few weeks back, sarile hopes to enjoy working with underprivileged kids in africa as she came from poverty herself, growing in the slums of manila. she expresses her views with regards to this tournamen

"i think its wonderful there are exhibitions like these to help charity. i know very well how difficult it is for a kid to grow without any visible form of hope. tennis is a great sport for them to learn. it has helped with so much in my life and also my family."

Sarile plans to donate all of her winnings, if any, in this tournament to the charitable institutions directed by the tournament. lindsay anne speaks of ruflina taliamanosoko, the tour organiser and an FWTT player.

"ruflina is a good friend. she is one of the few people who encouraged me when i first came into the FWTT. i was not suprised that she sponsors events like these because she has such a giving nature. she is truly a model player."

lindsay anne sarile also reacts to some cutting remarks made by a fellow FWTT player, madonika diva jafhson, towards sarile in a press conference.

"(gives a wry smile) you know, its quite ridiculous how one player insults another for no sane reason at all. i hope she would find pleasure in anything she does in her life. i have tried to be so open and understanding to everyone on tour but i just dont get her."

sarile and wong is unseeded in this exhibition.

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Anjelica de la Courtiere pulls out of the Unity Cup

The world #18 player issued the following statement:

"I regret that I must pull out of next week's Unity Cup in Botswana. I'm playing the challenger in Mexico with a good friend, hoping to have some results there that will inspire me to play a little better on the tour for next year. I'd like to apologize to the organizers of the event. I will be donating 50,000$ to the appropriate charity."

De la Courtiere is the number one seed in singles and doubles with partner Ana-Maria Herrera at the 50k Mexico City Challenger.

De La Courtiere withdraws, replaced by Sarile in singles

Canadian Player Angelica De La Courtiere withdrew today from the Unity Cup for a tournament in Mexico City. Fellow tour player and tournament coordinator issued the following statement:

"I totally understand Anjie needing to pull out. I am glad she is trying to get some more matches under her belt in a tour tournament, and I support her decision to play there. Lindsay Anne Sarile will be taking her place in the main draw and Regla Torres will now be playing with Eva Sorrenta in doubles. Once again, thanks to everyone for all the help."

The Wong sisters enter same tourney for the first time

Jane Wong said she is excited at the prospect of playing the same tournament as her sister, she said that the chance of them meeting maybe high if Mary qualify and manage to draw into her spot, she said, 'it will be really scary, but I am trying my best to make sure Mary get through her qualifying.' she also add,' I am so honoured to be playing in Botswana with my best friend on tour Ruflina, I personally will donate all my winning in this tournament into the charity, hopefully I can do well.' 'I know Ruflina organise one of the best exhibition, but I will not be flying there until Sunday when the Beijing Junior Cup is finish, I got a secret mission in there hehe.' She also talk about her performance this season,' it is absolutely magical winning the French Open and if you tell em I will win 4 singles tournaments including a singles and a doubles Grand Slam, I really will not believe you. I have a lot to back up next year, and my aim is to level my performance in clay from last year and at teh same time imporve in other surface, because to be honest I hardly win a match last year on otehr surface haha.'

Exclamation

<font size=5>Shocking announcement:</font>

<font size=5>Bryanne Pierce joins USA!</font>

Bryanne Pierce is going to marry Tobias Applegate from America on 10th of December. Applegate will add her surname with Pierce after they marry. She would like to invite all of her friends from FWTT Tour to her wedding on the 10th of December.

She lived in America for four years with her siblings, Catherine and Andrew and her parents, Mary and Jim. She wants to go back there again. Bryanne Pierce feels more American. That Bryanne will be always grateful to Australia because they were always with her and that thanks to Tennis Australia you are who you are. But she have decided to change her nationality as she are going to get married.


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci
