64 63 to Katalin Marosi in first round of qualifying. Is she deserved over Tatiana Golovin for Olympics? :rolleyes: Even Testud is one of my favourite players and Golovin is not one of them but let's face the fact, Golovin deserved it more!

It's 100% sure that these Olympic games are the last Sandrine has a chance to be at, I don't know why she shouldn't be, for years she was the most consistent single player playing for France, one of the best doubles player on tour so why not? Remember, this nomination is an appreciation for her career, I don't see aything wrong she was given the priority.

Tati is young, undoubtedly the future is hers so leave it, she will have numerous chances in future to prove how great is she :)

I think players should be selected on merit and not for sentimental reasons. If you base it on that we can say its Frazier's last Olympics so she should be on the US team, or some other old player who didnt make the team. I know Testud got in on injury rank but since this is only every 4 years i dont think injury rank should be allowed in a tournament like this.

Is Testud really playing the Olympics :eek: :eek: :eek:

lol :o
if ASV is playing, what's stopping her from playing it too:).
Well, it'll probably be Sandrine's farewell Olympics, so wish her luck.

Of course it is:). I might mean something to casual fans, but we all know this is just another bonus invitational Tier IIB event. Maria is not playing, Kim's not playing and Lindsay's not playing. A gold medal does not really add a lot of weight to their resume even though it does bring a certain amount of glory. I think it's great they are inviting Sandrine and Aranxta, It's not like Tatiana has a chance to win too:).

I'd say this just about sums it up. Well said! :D

Sandrine hasn't had a good year at all. She hasn't even had a decent year.

I don't agree with the French Federation in picking her over Golovin, although I like Sandrine a lot more. Her past should have NOTHING to do with being picked for the Oympics, otherwise Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert could have replaced any two of the four Americans on the squad.

Way to keep fuelling the fires dude. Another topic that grew old, oooh, about 2 weeks ago.

People need to get over it.

problem with your analogy is that amy was never a stalwart for the US fed cup team as sandrine was for the french and didn't leave the tour because she had a baby and therefore has no protected ranking. pretty big difference

Can you read ?

French federation wanted to send Golovin to Olympics, not Testud.
International Tennis Federation did not agree, and picked Testud because of her protected ranking.

It's stupid, but it's the rules :mad:

Cool:). According to the protective ranking, they think Sandrine is better than Taitiana. (of course, not in real life, just look at the topic:o). Well, what you we say, guess all the controversies can die now that ITF made the decision.

How old is she now? Doesn't she want to take care of her child?

....

:o Don't know why all this negative pose against her, no doubt she DESERVES it, take a look at her past results, I know her comeback and results aren't the most shining but still, she was about a year out.

Anyway Sandrine proved many times how great competitor she is, btw she is very polite and gallant so you have no reason for these comments....
I'm glad that ITF decided how they decided, it's nice to see (even thanks protected rankings) that we can still appreciate someone's career, we still have a respect for someone's achievements. :)

Remember Olympic games are not only about competition.... ;)
