The WTA-Antwerp Thread !!!
I'm really looking forward to this tournament!!! Not only because those super stars like Henin, Clijsters, Mauresmo, Serena & Dokic will play here, but also because some Belgian Babes get a chance to play in a big tournament and win some points.
From the website:
The tournament starts Friday 8 February with the Belgian Pre-Qualify, at which there are Wild Cards to be won for the tournament qualifying rounds Eight Belgian ladies will win a place on the Belgian Pre-Qualify.
These eight players will each play one match; the winner of each match will get a Wild Card for the qualifying rounds which start Saturday 9 February.
Participants in the Belgian Pre-Qualify include :
Caroline Maes ranking no. 315<br />Patty Van Acker ranking no. 341<br />Leslie Butkiewicz ranking no. 357<br />Stéphanie De Villé ranking no. 985 (I thought she had retired?)<br />Evelyne Van Hyfte ranking no. 1049<br />Kirsten Flipkens ranking no. 1076 <hr
Ok, that's 6 players. Who will the other 2 be?? And is Laurence Courtois playing? They say that the main draw wild cards are Els Callens, Laurence Courtois and Elke Clijsters (...)!
What a weird choice. If I could give the wild cards I'd give them to Callens, Maes & Butkiewicz!
What are your wishes for this tournament? I'm hoping for a Belgian final and some surprises by the Belgian talents such as Flipkens, Maes etc.
Go Belgian Babes!!!! <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />
