German's Barbara Schett was the last one to arrive in Key Biscayne, FL, USA, on the Lufthansa 8888 flight which left from Munich and arrived in Miami earlier today. Barbara Schett was born in Austria but last week she switched to Germany due to personal reasons.
Schett's last tournament was the Wimbledon Championships where she lost in the 2nd round against 2nd seed Saori Obata on a three-setter.
On a fast interview at the VIP Lounge of the Miami's International Airport, Schett stated:<br />"I'm very excited to debut here. Miami is an amazing city! I love Miami Beach, specially the Ocean Drive atmosphere. It's cool!"
"As for the tournament, I want to do well here and I think I have a great chance. I was playing very well at Wimbledon, but then I faced Saori right on the second round and even though I played well, she was superior to me and won. Here I will face Francesca Schiavone in the first round and I think we can make a very tough match. I've improved my self-esteem on court and I definitely feel better playing. I think this is the main thing on tennis."
All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!
