Pierce and Mikaelian handed Zurich wildcards
2003-10-03 17:31:20 GMT (Reuters)

ZURICH, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Mary Pierce and Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian have been handed wildcard entries into this month's Swisscom Challenge, organisers said on Friday.

Tournament director Beat Ritschard chose to award two of the three available wildcards to France's Pierce, ranked 49th in the world, and home favourite Mikaelian after both missed out on automatic places for the Zurich tournament.

Pierce, 28, reached the final of the tournament in 1995 but has not played in the Swisscom Challenge since 1999.

World number 44 Mikaelian, 19, has twice reached the quarter-finals of the tournament, which begins on October 12.

Organisers also said that they expect world number one Kim Clijsters to compete despite the Belgian currently suffering a foot injury.

Mary Pierce?...it's good that she's recovering,
but taking up WC's from the Swiss own players,
that's really not acceptable....

btw, wasnt MGM going to be changing her nationality?
i cant remember where, but was she?...

Marie GM is Armenian. If she changed she would get no funding what so ever from the Government, or that their facilities in yerevan are shocking. Best she stay in Swiyzland.

I think that it ' s " normal " to give a " wild card " to Mary Pierce, she is an excellent player who were injured !!!!!
