For one german player.

I don't think 2 or 3 WC will go to Germans. One will go to Mary- she was champion here and she is GS winner. Maybe Iva will get WC because she is Anke friend and Anke is tournament director. I don't see Schett in commitment list but she can get WC too.

If they don't give my BLBC (Blonde Lefty in a Baseball Cap) one, she should tell GER to fuck off and emigrate to either SUI or AUT!

Anca will not get a maindraw WC
thats what i read, it will go to a young german player
and this is most likely Anna-Lena again

im not happy about this because i think she has no chance to win a match in Maindraw
in Qualidraw she could earn good points
anca should be happy not to get a WC
now she can rock the qualifying and can earn few good points on her way to the olympics

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

if she gets a q or another wc ALG is absolutely able to win a match in filderstadt. more than any other. but i'd also like to see her in q. wc should go to ANCA. RITTNER doesn't make sense - she will retire next year, i'm sure. but what does make sense in this federation?

It's not about how BLBC will get more points, it's about the German Fed. asking your tournaments to operate with some semblance of justice. In other words, "her country" (if they don't consider Anca's family, inc. TWO engineers as parents, some charity case from Romania) OWES IT TO HER!

It's sad that a promising player like Anna-Lena wound up being dragged into a controversy re. Leipzig essentially created by Lei Clijsters and the organizers of that tournament. (I guess a WC for Anca @ Antwerp would be justice, if she could handle the crowd hostility. And IMO, Elke should never, ever, ever get one "on Kim's back" again, in addition to losing one in the Benelux).

Just please no WC for Barbara Schett, that is the biggest joke, she is totally undeserving of it, she should have to play qualifying if she wants to play. To give a WC to Schett ahead of their own player Barna is outrageous. The Germans are really such idiots when it comes to tennis.
