News regarding WCs, delay on Court 1

There was just an interview with Ivan Radosevic (tournament director):

- when asked about the WC's, he wasn't able to name the German player receiving one. He mumbled something like "Grner" before he got some help by the interviewer. :retard:
- about the 2nd WC, he said it went to "Clijsters No. 2", again unable to say her first name. He added that it's an arrangement between Leo Clijsters and them because they have a close and friendship-like relationship.

I think that's quite obvious: Leo guarantees Kim's appearance as long as Elke gets a WC. Pfffffffff.

And about the delay on Court 1 during Serna vs. Chladkova: Obviously the surface was waving.

And there about 100 spectators today.

First Dominique, your mail to the tournament direction was great!! Thanks for it!
That's so funny that the tournament director didn't know the players who recieved WC's. Every person ,who is a little bit interested in women's tennis know this...
The surface was waving???

What a shame....!
Well, we know that many good ranked players use to ask for a "warrantee" to play, some times the tournament gave them more money to play that the tournament prize.

But what Im thinking about is.... you organize a tennis tournament and you dont know the player names...

Can you imagine Bernie Ecclestone saying this:?
-Yes... that boy Shoemaker... Shoetrader... what was his name? Schumsomething....


Eleni Daniilidou - Iveta Benesova - Melanie Klaffner - Gisela Dulko - Daniela Hantuchova - Jelena Dokic - Karolina Sprem -

Akenatn rules, Horemheb sucks
