AND, in the Qualies, Anastasia <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> (playing HERE, instead of Brtislava! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">) and Tatiana <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> are both seeded and I think they both have an excellent chance to make the main draw.

Lina was always a big possibility as she's managed by Octagon.

But i wanted her to play qualies to give her some much needed matches , then she is more dangerous.
Hopefully she avoids a seed in rd 1.

Nadia ...... suprised she got a WC .... very suprised.
Anastasia ????? she was way down on entry.... too far to be considered when entries were submitted. But glad she's here <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Good luck to my favs

What does Octagon have to do with it? I thought IMG controlled women's tennis. Except for the Ladies Kremlin Cup, of course.

Octagon Group own some events as well , not everything is run by IMG

Moscow , Tokyo Princess Cup . Zurich are 3 of Octagon's tournaments.

Octagon group has a great list of athletes now as well and its getting bigger.

Good luck to my favs

The new tournament in Antwerp will also be run by Octagon. I hope that will mean Lina will come to Belgium! That would be awesome!

Yes, Antwerp starts February the 8th. So that would be around the same time as Doha and Dubai.
