$25K Biarritz...

Starts tomorrow with all the usual suspects - presumably - taking part ('presumably' because the Tennis Europe site hasn't updated the acceptance lists since March).

So, good luck to:

Main Draw - Elena, Anne and Julie.

Qualifying - Lucie and Jane.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

Nice one Jane!

As Lucie is ranked above the highest ranked player in qualifying, we can assume she's in the main draw, if she's playing here at all.

Elena Baltacha (5) vs. Olga Blahatova
Anne Keothavong vs. Bianka Lamade
Lucie Ahl vs. Selima Sfar
Julie Pullin vs. Sanchez-Alayato
Jane O'Donoghue vs Marta Domachowska

Jane won 6-0 6-0 in qualifying final round, an excellent result from Jane

I will be a bit upset if we don't see at least 1 brit in Round 2. What do Blahatova, Lamade, Sanche-A, Domachowska & Sfar play like on clay?

As there's at least one in each quarter of the draw, I'll be a bit upset if we don't get all British semis! LOL

OK , perhaps a bit too ambitious.

selima is a clay court specialist, although as she is playing crap at the moment is anything but 'special' - but Lucie is horrendous on clay, no idea why she isn't in Mexico or Asia.

Sanchez-Alyato is a clay specialist, and she's Spanish.

Lamade, i'm not sure if she's a clay-court specialist, but she's very comfortable on this surface.

Blahotova, has played 2 brits this year, and lost both times (in fairness she gave Hannah a w/o but it all counts!). No idea on this one, but is probably happier on the red stuff than Elena.

Marta - doesnt matter now really, as she hammered Jane 62 62

OMG Selima is a clay court specialist??? she sucked so horrible last year on it, I thought she would have been specialist on grass.

Anyways, Come on Lucie win this match

For the record:

(Q)Sanchez Alayeyo d. Pullin 6-4 6-2
(Q)Domachowska d. (Q)O'Donoghue 6-2 6-2

but on a lighter note:

Ahl/Sfar d. (2)Duebbers/Mouhtassine 6-2 7-6(8)
