Mmmm that's already old news you know ;-)
Great of Laurence Courtois to be organizing such an event! Heiveld is right in the centre of Katelijne, and there is a train station in Katelijne. I know because I ended up there a few times forget to step off in Duffel. :-)

According to me, she won't need it. It's only a Grade 5, therefore her ranking should be high enough (I bet she'll even be seeded as in Clermont Ferrand, Grade 4 in August, she was seeded 4).

Joel you're confusing it with the junior events Heiveld is also organising (2nd one at the end of this month).
I think Aude will get a WC for the $25K-event because Heiveld is her club. (or not anymore??)

I noticed at Heiveld Niels Dessein will finally play again. Pity he has to play a Grade 5, he exceeded that level by far before he got infured.

Oups... Indeed. I'm so focused on this junior event because it's an excellent opportunity to see our future stars.
Coming back to the $25000 event of next year, I think a wild-card for the qualies would be better. In the main draw she could get a really tough opponent whereas in the qualies she could be up to the task.
Wait and see...

Laurence Courtois will try to have either Kirsten Flipkens either Els Callens as main attraction. She'll contact them after the US Open
