Make it a good start for 2005, Caroline

Good luck to the other girls as well, although I've never heard of Ornelia

All the best in 2007 Caroline Maes
and the rest of the Belgian girls

Els' qualie draw. Not quite what we were hoping for

Els Callens BEL (5) vs. Elena Baltacha GBR
Dominika Nociarova SVK vs. Jaslyn Hewitt AUS
Teryn Ashley USA vs. Maureen Drake CAN
Shikha Uberoi USA vs. Lioudmila Skavronskaia RUS (23)

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

hi! I read somewhere in an article (guess it was on MTF in LLL) that Jaslyn Hewitt didn't get a WC and wouldn't be in the drawn, but now she is anyway... anyone know how come?
or was it a maindraw WC she didn't get?
(don't think so tho 'cause I think she's only ranked something like 400, don't know if that's high enough to get into the Quali's...)

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

She should qualify. (but will she? )
Baltacha is no.184
Nociarova is no.241
Hewitt is no.346
Ashley is no.162
Drake is no.192
Uberoi is no.159
Skavronskaia is no.149

This is a lucky draw IMO.
Let's hope Els takes this chance!

I followed the match online. Even in the first set Els was having trouble holding her serve. In the second she was really steamrolled, barely winning points

Grenoble $10,000:
Q1 Ornella Gentile(Bel) vs. Cecilia Gratian(Fra)

I wonder what she'll do this week. Is she really talented? Has anyone seen her play?

Els

does anyone know how long it has been since there wasn't a Belgian female player in the main draw of a Grand Slam?

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

I have no idea Probably somewhere in the 1980s

*edit* looked it up! The last time there were no Belgian women in the maindraw of grand slam was more than 17 years ago - the US Open in 1987!


Grenoble:
Q1 Cecilia Gratian (Fra) beat Ornella Gentile (Bel) 6-4 6-2

Ann Devries playes all 4 Grand Slams in 1987
so... US Open 1986 was the last Grand Slam without a Belgian player
