Re: 2008 Antwerp

(1) Justine Henin (BEL) vs Bye
Anne Kremer (LUX) vs Na Li (CHN)
Qualifier vs Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR)
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) vs (6)Agnes Szavay (HUN)

(3)Daniela Hantuchova (SVK) vs Bye
Shuai Peng (CHN) vs (WC)Yanina Wickmayer (BEL)
Olga Govortsova (BLR) vs Qualifier
Qualifier vs (7)Alona Bondarenko (UKR)

(5)Sybille Bammer (AUT) vs Yaroslava Shvedova (RUS)
Karin Knapp (ITA) vs Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
(WC)Caroline Maes (BEL) vs Ai Sugiyama (JPN)
Bye vs (4)Patty Schnyder (SUI)

(8)Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs Elena Likhovtseva (RUS)
Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs Tzipora Obziler (ISR)
Meilen Tu (USA) vs Qualifier
Bye vs (2)Anna Chakvetadze (RUS)

That's a very weak field for a Tier II (contrast it with the last Stuttgart field, for instance). Li and Sugiyama strike me as the only remotely dangerous unseeded players, this really is a glorified tier three. Seeing that Hantuchova and Szavay are on the other side of the draw, Anna is the clear favorite to make the final from the bottom half.

Re: 2008 Antwerp

Anna's draw is nice. I hope she gets a good rest after Paris before her first match here.

Re: 2008 Antwerp

I think Anna's draw just got a whole lot better. I have heard a rumour that Radwanska will not be playing Antwerp. I hope this is not the case as i was looking forward to a match between two of my faves

Apparantly, Rawanska is replaced in the seedings by Na Li. Does this mean that she moves into Aga's spot of the draw. Either way, i definately think Chaky can make the final here if she isnt too tired from her matches in Paris this week

Re: 2008 Antwerp

Yes, she does. The only change in the draw is Na Li moves to Ratwanska's spot

Quote:
"In the second set I had so many unforced errors. I had problems with my shoulder. Yesterday I called my trainer because of my hip. I guess I'm getting older," said Chakvetadze who said that she was uncertain whether she will be fit to compete in Antwerp next week.
I hope she can play The draw is too good for withdrawing!

Re: 2008 Antwerp

She won't play until Wednesday at the earliest so she can see how it goes. Problem is she's defending SF points so to not play would be a blow to her hopes of overtaking Maria in the rankings.

Re: 2008 Antwerp

If Anna is still feeling sore on monday she should pull out of Antwerp to rest her injuries. She needs to be healthy this year to try to defend her points from last year.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
