10000$ Grenoble, France, Jan23, winner: Virginie Pichet

10000$ Grand Prix Feminin de l `Isere

The city has been known under different names through time:After the collapse of the Roman Empire the city was part of the first Burgundian kingdom, until it was taken by Clotaire I, king of the Franks and a son of Clovis. Later on, it progressively passed into the possession of the Carolingian kings, then the second Burgundian kingdom of Arles and finally became a possession of the counts of Vienne, whose title, "Dauphin", gave the region its traditional name: Dauphiné. Grenoble was the capital of the Dauphiné, a province of France since 1349, when the last Dauphin of Vienne sold the region to France, on condition that the heir to the French crown use the title of Dauphin.
Grenoble (Occitan: Grasanòbol) is a city and commune in south-east France, situated at the foot of the Alps, at the confluence of the Drac into the Isère River. Located in the Rhône-Alpes région, Grenoble is the préfecture (capital) of the département of Isère. Population of the city (commune) of Grenoble at the 1999census was 153,317 inhabitants (157,900 inhabitants as of February 2004 estimates). Population of the whole metropolitan area (in French: aire urbaine) at the 1999 census was 514,559 inhabitants.

The tournament:
Previous Winners:
2002: Sybille Bammer AUT d. Virginie Pichet FRA 64 64
2003: Karolina Sprem CRO d. Sophie Lefevre FRA 75 75
2004: Martina Müller GER d. Aravane Rezai FRA 75 61
2005: Mervana Jugic-Salkic BIH d. Karen Paterson GBR 63 61

Out of the quali Sybille Bammer won that tournament after coming back from her baby break. In fact it was her first tournament in more than 2 years and beat players like Vedy, Rizzi, Le Bescond, Klösel and Pichet. Top seed Sophie Georges lost in the quarters to Anais Laurendon.
At the beginning of 2003 Karolina Sprem was nearly invincible. Without losing a set she won and defeated Laurendon, Jolk, Xie, Jurak and finally Sophie Lefevre who surprisingly reached the final. Top seed Jana Nejedly lost her first round match vs Capucine Rousseau. The chinese girls didnt play that convincing here, Nan-Nan Liu lost 06 36 in round 1 vs Vrljic. Yan-ze Xie at least reached the quarters but had no chance vs Sprem. Severine Beltrame had to play qualies and reached the quarters
In 2004 Martina Müller played her final vs a certain Aravane Rezai who was pretty unknown at that time. Out of the qualies where she already beat Yevgenia Savransky or Pascale Leroy, she also beat Misic, Heitz, Rocchi and Widmer to reach the final. Martina Müller was too strong and only had problems with Rezai in the first set. Anne Kremer played here who came back from an injury and reached the QF (36 63 16 vs Müller). Top seed Nathalie Vierin surprisingly easily lost her second round match vs Laura Rocchi.
After some great tournaments, Mervana Jugic decided to play 10000$ tournaments again, which was very smart. Only Claire Feuerstein in the SF was able to compete with Mervana. All other opponents got trashed. Karen Paterson with her big service reached the final with good wins over Korzeniak, Greau, Widmer and Jurak. Segolene Berger gave her comeback after some years off

Amandine Dulon

After a 2 year break she's back!

Former top 200 player who's only 23 and had her best season in 2003 (the year she quit the tour) with wins over Llagostera Vives, Parra Santonja, Beltrame and Birnerova. Got a WC in Roland Garros MD where she lost in 1st round against Pennetta 64 64 and played Wimbledon and US Open qualies (won one match there). Has other wins over Golovin, Pelletier, Pin and Cohen Aloro.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
