I got to see Arvidsson and Nooni in a couple of tournaments, including in Glasgow last week. Entertaining play, and of course Svensson (nee Carlsson)...

Four of us

I think the women get over-shadowed by good male Swedes like Borg and Bjorkman.

Definately. Although I do think that the likes of Hanna and Sofia are very good, I don't ever see the them dominating the tennis world. Same with our players...

So Sofia lost the $25K Jersey final to Sybille Bammer 76 62

Another dissapointing result...

Hanna Nooni lost to Sofia in semis
Maria Wolfbrandt lost in r1 of Cd. Juarez $50K
Aleksandra Srndovic lost in qf of $10K Bari

Helena Ejeson was qualifier in Jersey and lost in r1
