Claudine Schaul defeats Galina Voskoboeva 6:3 6:1
Anne Kremer defeats Stephanie Dubois 6:1 6:3
Mandy Minella defeats Anastassia Rodionova 6:1 6:4

Now Claudine versus Anne (may the best win )

Anne Kremer defeats Claudine Schaul 6:2 7:5

but Claudine

Mandy Minella defeats Sami Medjahdi 6:4 7:5

In the final quali round Anne will meet Olga Savchuk (156) (beatable opponent but Anne shouldn't underestimate the one who beat Flavia Pennetta earlier in 2005 )

Mandy will meet Shikha Uberoi (149) (100 places before Mandy but in the actual shape she can beat her )

Two Luxembourgish players could ( ) reach the main draw of a Tier III tomorrow! Good luck to Anne and Mandy!

Mandy Minella reached main draw by defeating Shikha Uberoi 6:2 6:7 7:5

Now she will meet Roberta Vinci! Kick her ass Mandy and come closer to Top 200!

Anne Kremer lost to Olga Savchuk 3:6 6:7

Now Anne Kremer is again Luxembourg's number 1 and I really hope that this will be motivation enough for Claudine and Anne to show decent results in the next tournaments.

Mandy Minella lost 4:6 2:6 against Roberta Vinci and I'm satisfied that she won 6 games against a Top 50 player.

Now Mandy needs to be more consistent because she has shown us this week that she can beat players from Top 150 (but she often loses in QF of 25k ). She has even a slight chance to reach Australian Open quali which would be really nice.

I guess Mandy Minella will climb up the rankings like this: around 160 (end 2006), around 120 (end 2007) and breaking in Top 100 during 2008.
