Talking 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.

Can't wait!

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]" />

I can't wait either ! I'm gonna be there on quite a lot of days.<br />Teletext says there will be also one top 3 player<br />playing, so some more competition for our Belgian babes !<br />Also 5000 tickets for the final have already been<br />sold.

I bought two tickets for the final, but they haven't arrived yet <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <br />Did you guys buy your tickets at the tele ticketservice. How long did it take to get them, once you payed?

Come on now Bram! I think it's quite logical that you give two wildcards to 2 persons who were in the winning Fed Cup team of your own country! Okay, maybe they didn't have to do very much with Kim and Justine playing so awesome, but I think they really deserve this.

I'm sure this'll be a GREAT tournament! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

<br />Good luck to ALL the Belgian Babes! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> Go girls!!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I ordered my tickets only 2 days ago at tele ticket service, but from last time with the Brilliant Game, I remember it took a while so I<br />won't worry yet.

Well Verve, I think it's quite unlogical to give a wild card to a retired player and to a mediocre junior player who's ranked +/- 700 <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Butkiewicz and Maes would be a better choice than Courtois and Elke, I think!

I agree with you Bram. But yeah if you're called Clijsters ranking doesn't matter <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I also agree with Bram, Maes and Butkiewicz deserve it more.

I'm going the first four days, day and evening sessions.
