<font size=5>Graf, Valentine and Dokic announce: Team Champion!</font>
In the world of the Fantasy Womens Tennis Tour, not one practise group can match up to the one which includes Sabine Graf, Selima Valentine and Jelena Dokic.
No players comman attaention like these 3 and today, they announced an exciting new development in their practise group.
Speaking via satellite, Graf, Valentine and Dokic announced their latest plan, Team Champion. A training development program which allows talented juniors to come otgether and join a group.
'We decided to have this because we recognise that there is a lot of talent out there and we need to develop it' said the trio, part of the most rigorous training program on the Tour.
The trio, are unmatched when it comes to work ethic. While other players take part in sexual innuendo (Anjie and Eva <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ), and others are giving birth to a herd of children, these 3 can be found on the practise court drilling away, occasionally joined by other talented players.
'We know we train hard and we think that by getting the younger players to do this, it will make them better' said the three stars.
The group will ask juniors to join Team Champion if they feel that those juniors have the capabilities to become top players.
'We are very excited by this and hope that everyone will help out the younger kids'
