The same way Donna as an alt. almost played for Germany last year.
You mean this year (eventhough the tourney started on Dec. 31st) Anyway, you're right, she could probably play HC for another country and regular Tour events for the one whose passport she holds.
Nice news if it turns out to be true but I'm still puzzled by her absence on the Dubrovnik accpetance list(s).

She was certain to get a WC, so there was no need to get onto the acceptance list.

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread! vol2

Thought I'll never see her in a draw again - how wonderful to be wrong on this

No expectations here, let's just see how the test ride goes and work from there. After all this time out of action it'd be ludicrous to even set a bar, let alone set it high.

Have fun K-lina, show you've still got it girl

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread! vol2

Welcome back, K-Lina ! So happy she is back !

She should at least reach R2 of 10k Dubrovnik. Then nothing to lose vs top seed Krejcikova

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Interview with Karolina

http://varazdinske-vijesti.hr/sport/...ki-svijet.html

" Until October 20th I need to play at one tournament to activate my protected ranking and that is #156. on WTA rankings. I picked futures in Dubrovnik because it is tournament in Croatia and it is easy to combine it with my family comitments.It is nice to be back in world of tennis, but it was pretty odd to hold tennis racket again in hands after two years".

Looks like she mean serious about this when she counts on her protected ranking!

P.S. my English is not so good, so I'm sorry for mistakes in my try of translating the interview but I hope that you will figure out main point.

So excited for this

But is she fully committed to a long term comeback, or is she just playing a few events?

It's of course fantastic that Karolina is playing DBV but to me the fact that she's playing to activate her PR before it expires isn't such a positive sign. I interpret it as her wanting to keep her options open rather than being serious about a come-back.
