anna
i thought she would start the year only at the aussie open for a minute.
hope she wins her last aussie tourny of her career.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Pratt to start fightback in Hobart
December 1, 2005 - 5:29PM
Former Australian No.1 Nicole Pratt has been given a wildcard entry into a strong field for next month's Hobart International women's tennis tournament.

A disappointing season has seen the 32-year-old tour veteran slip outside the top 100 in the rankings and she'll be looking to start her fightback at the Hobart event where she reached the semi-finals in 2002.

However, she faces tough competition at January 6-13 event which has attracted seven of the world's top 50 players and includes three former winners in the lead up to the Australian Open.

Slovakian world No.27 Katarina Srebotnik returns as top seed after a two-year absence, having won WTA Tour singles titles in Auckland and Stockholm this year.

The 1999 Hobart winner Chanda Rubin returns after missing the majority of the season with knee and ankle injuries.

American former world No.6 Rubin has dropped down to 544 on the world rankings, but will use a special injury protected ranking of 29 to be the second seed for the tournament.

Other leading players entered are the Czech Republic's Kveta Peschke (ranked No.30) and Klara Koukalova, Israeli veteran Anna Smashnova, American Jill Craybas and Nuria Llagostera Vives of Spain.

Returning for the eighth consecutive year, is American Amy Frazier who won the singles title in 2004, along with 2002 winner Martina Sucha from Slovakia.

A newcomer likely to catch the eye is 16-year-old Michaella Krajicek from the Netherlands, the sister of 1996 Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek.

She reached a career-high ranking of 57 in early November after starting the year ranked 429.

Krajicek won her first WTA Tour title in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in October as well as qualifying for the Australian and French Opens.

She is restricted on the amount of tournaments a year she can play until she turns 18.

I didn't think they still had protected injury seedings. The ranking is protected to get her in the tournament but it doesn't carry to the sseding does it? Just when you thought you understood the rule......
