Wimbledon 2005!

Nice draws for Anne Kremer and Claudine Schaul! (Finally they have lucky draws at a Grand Slam )

Anne Kremer

First round: versus Abigail Spears (USA/69), a player who is in a slump actually (losing her last 4 matches) and isn't really a successful grass player- Anne Kremer can beat her for sure
Second round: versus Ai Sugiyama (JAP/25), on one hand a good grass player reaching Wimbledon quarters last year but on the other hand a player who is out of sorts in 2005 and in addition to that under pressure to defend so many points- she is beatable for Anne Kremer
Third round: Kim Clijsters (BEL/17), a very tough opponent who would probably bring Anne's Wimbledon road to an end (but Anne Kremer is leading Kim Clijsters 1:0 in the H2H 6:2 6:1 victory in 2001 )


Apart from the difficult third round Anne Kremer has a nice draw and she should be able to defend her third round from 2004.

Good luck Anne!


Claudine Schaul

First round: LL (Krajicek being injured); if Claudine plays like she did in the match against Klara Koukalova, she will zoom to round 2 for sure
Second round: Nadia Petrova (RUS/8); a stubborn adversary, but Claudine could play free, without pressure

Finally a beatable opponent in first round for Claudine Schaul who has no points to defend at Wimbledon.

Good luck Claudine!

Claudine will play LL Beltrame who is definitely beatable


well, I see a one way traffic to 3rd round for Anne

only one problem is if Spears is eager for revenge for Eastbourne Cup lost
yesterday, if she's....

Anne has strapped left thigh, hope nothing serious

Anne Kremer defeated Abigail Spears 6:0 2:6 6:2

In second round of Wimbledon she will face the strong Roberta Vinci!

Good luck Anne! You can beat her for sure!



PS: If Claudine Schaul would win tomorrow against Beltrame then for the first time ever two Luxembourgish player would advance to the second round of a Grand Slam.

Allez Anne Kremer!

Do your best against Roberta Vinci!



Claudine is getting deeper and deeper in the slump. I really ignore how she will come out of this dreadful shape. Perhaps a good break to regroup for the rest of the season would help.

Anne Kremer (WTA/145) and Claudine Schaul (WTA/179) are going through difficult times actually ... there have been much better times for Luxembourg's tennis with Anne Kremer broking into Top 20 in 2002 and Claudine Schaul entering the Top 50 last year.


But there is still hope for better days because both players have Top 100 potential and aren't suffering from injuries actually.

So let's stay positive and it was a great delight for me to see the comeback of Anne Kremer's website: anne-kremer.lu

A wonderful site dedicated to the best Luxembourgish player ever! I love these nice pictures on her website:

Little Anne Kremer:

Two Luxembourgish players are playing in Vittel (50000), Mandy Minella in qualification and Claudine Schaul in the main draw.

Mandy Minella (LUX/257) beat Danica Krstajic (SCG/398) 6:1 6:2, Mailyne Andrieux (FRA/336) 6:2 7:5 and Andrea Benitez (ARG/399) 6:3 6:3 en route to the main draw where she is meeting top seeded ( ) Sandra Kloesel (GER/117)

Claudine Schaul (LUX/179) seeded 7 was eliminated with 1:6 0:6 ( ) by Kaia Kanepi (EST/246)!

Claudine Schaul's slump is getting really embarrassing now and she needs another attitude on court in order to find back to former strength!
