Ok, nice that Nanda Alves gets her own thread, she already deserved I'm one of her biggest fans, so I hope she'll do very well next year and finally break the top 100. I'll keep this thread updated with Nanda's tournaments schedule, results and some other news. BTW, her official website is www.nandaalves.com.br

The draw of ITF 75K + H Dubai is out, and Nanda will face in the first round Kyra Nagy, of Hungary. She is 27 years old and is ranked 152º in the world, but I don't know much else about her. Good luck there, Nanda!!!!

Yeah, she lost in doubles as well Well, all we have to do now is wait till 2006 season. She'll start playing in Australia or New Zeland. I guess her first tournament will be Tier IV Auckland, but I'm not sure. When I have better info, I'll say. Well, Merry Christmas every one!

Go Brazilian girls!

Okay, I've just seen that she pulled out of Auckland, so I guess she'll play Tier III Gold Coast instead. I prefered Auckland, because I think she had more chances, but ok

2006 news :D

Okay, I've talked to her press agent ("acessora de imprensa", in Portuguese, I don't know the translation), and she told me Nanda Alves's schedule for January:
Jan 9 - Canberra - Tier IV
Jan 16 - Australian Open - Grand Slam
Jan 23 - Waikoloa, USA - 50K
Good luck to her in these tournaments

Go Brazilian girls!

Great, let's hope Nanda can qualify for the AO, what a big achievement it would be for her if she could!

Okay, she changed her mind and decided to play Tier IV Canberra, instead of Tier II Sydney. I think it's a wise decision, she'll have more chances there, and in Sydney she might not even get in the qualifying.
Good luck, Nanda!
BTW, I'll edit the post there.
