no chance to get out of the nether Fed Cup echelons until next year then.
I actually thought they would win vs. Belarus. Hanna and Sofia obviously aren't ready for Fed Cup life without sa yet

So Sofia lost in opening qualifying round of Berlin to Cohen-Aloro 2-6 1-6

Vasilescu lost in qualifying round of Edinburgh to Peterzan 6-7 4-6, and Srndovic lost in the opening qualifying round to Peterzan 4-6 1-6. In Bournemouth, Srndovic had beaten qualifier Mossiakova in R1 before losing to Melanie South 4-6 2-6.

In Stockholm-Bromma, Svensson won R1 against fellow Swede (qualifier) Helena Norfeldt 4-6 6-1 6-1 whilst Arvidsson is top seed against another Swede Nadja Roma. Klara Petersson lost in the second round of qualifying to Jaslyn Hewitt after beating Rebecca Fong in Q1.

Maria Wolfbrandt reached the final of $10k Merida (Mexico) beating the third and eighth seeds on the way - she lost to qualifier Andrea Benitez 4-6 3-6 in the final.

The fruit series is suspended whilst Grachka (obatafan) mourns Saori's retirement.

So...

Svensson bt. Llagostera 62 64
Svensson lost to Kremer 57 61 57

Arvidsson lost to Rodionova 36 36

Nooni bt. Johansson , beat someone whose name i just forgot LOL, and lost in sf to Rodionova 46 62 76


I heard Sofia was having problems of motivation... she should skip tennis after RG and comeback until Sopot or something... I mean... she is really having a horrible season.

Svensson won over Singla in Strasbourg 75 64

I was thinking that if people had MSN messenger, maybe we could add each other sometimes it's sad for me not to have anyone to chat with about Swedish tennis

If anyone wants to add me, my email is alki404@hotmail.com

to all fans of Swedes!

that is a great idea Alek, Sweden is maybe closest tennis nation to me considering Iceland has no tennis players, so I like talking about them! My mail is ahjartardottir@hotmail.com. I am sure that obatafan will give his too as I know him...

Good luck!

Sofia

Poor Hanna she did not make the draw but was fairly close. The way she is going she might make the Wimbledon Qualifying Draw?

Caserta $25K (Hanna Nooni) - She beat O'Donoghue 76(2) 62 in round 1. She then beat Foldenyi 60 63. In quarter finals she beat Laura Pous Tio 76(4) 62 . She is now in the semi finals against Katerina Bohmova.

Good luck!

Well done Hanna

Also, never heard of her but Kristina Andlovic has qualified for the Zaton $10K in Croatia.

Q2: Kristina Andlovic SWE d. Anja Prislan SLO 76 62


She played top seed Nadja Pavic of Croatia in the first round, and played very well against her. Losing narrowly 67(3) 61 26

Well done Kristina

Have people noticed this...
Arvidsson is top 120
Nooni is top 230
Svensson soon in top 230
Wolfbrandt back to top 300

If Maria keeps doing well in the next few challengers and has a good Stockholm (like qualifying so could move in ALT list)

We could have 4 SWEDES in US Open qualies?

HEJA SWEDEN

Well done all the Swedes!

Anyone know why Sofia is struggling lately? She lost to Liggan 36 36 at Los Gatos, a match she would normally win
