More Belgian players should play in Africa :p The level's a lot lower & the points are so easily earned :o ;)

Who is that Anciaux girl and what is she doing on St. Maarten? :eek:


Oh and WHEN is the Fed Cup draw coming out??

Laurie Anciaux...she's listed as Belgian on juniortennis and listed as American on ITFtennis... But she's playing mostly in America...

Err, this afternoon Bram ;) btw...maybe Belgium doesn't even need to play, the referee declared the courts in Jerez de la Frontera as not conform to the rules (bad light). They are searching for a solution

But still congrats for a great tennis evening yesterday! :D
I hope Kirsten gets some confidence from this weekend. She did really well and never gave up. I like her spirit on the court! :)

The Spanish crowd annoyed me sometimes. The clapping after a Belgian 1st serve fault wasn't really nice :rolleyes: But I guess it's Fedcup after all so it's kinda normal.

nicky
Jul 12th, 2004, 08:14 AM
The Spanish team did, as expected :shrug: It was 6-3 6-2, but Els & Kirsten did put up a good fight. Nothing to be ashamed of, nobody expected a decisive doubles match after all, it was a good learning experience for Kirsten, and a lot of tennis for us to watch :)

Well seeing that the coach didn't (couldn't?) replace a 34 year old who just played a marathonmatch only 15 hours ago by one of the 'youngsters', isn't exactly promising for the future ;)
