Luxembourg at the Olympic Games of the small countries in Andorra 2005
Two years ago in Malta 2005 Luxembourg's tennis team won two gold medals (Claudine Schaul in singles and Schaul/Minella in doubles) and a silver medal (Mandy Minella in singles). This year the 19 year old Mandy Minella (WTA 269), the only professional WTA player at this competition, and the unranked 16 year old youngster Lynn Philippe were representing Luxembourg at the Olympic Games of the small states running from 30th May to 4th June 2005 in the Pyrenees country Andorra.
In the run up of these games it was clear that the FLT (Féderation Luxembourgeoise du Tennis/ Luxembourg's tennis federation) team was the clear favourite in the tennis competition although the two best players Claudine Schaul and Anne Kremer were absent due to their participation at Roland Garros.
