Back in 2000, I seem to recall Jana Nejedly being eligible to play at the Sydney Olympics in singles (along with Sonya who did compete), but for some reason Tennis Canada didn't allow her to go?
I would really hope Tennis Canada would back Canadian players and try and send as many as they could. Even if they don't win, it's a once in a lifetime chance for many and certainly an excellent experience to compete at such an important level.
If they do pick a full team then I hope singles goes to Pelletier and Drake (Drake especially for the simple fact that she's never competed at the Olympics - would be a great moment for her!), and for doubles I think Sonya along with either Pelletier or Marois (Marois has the better ranking, but Pelletier has the experience of having played Fed Cup ties for us and may handle the big match pressure a bit better at this point).
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But he loves you."
