I was just checking some French Challenger sites when I noticed that Emilie Bacquet (isn't she Walloon???) is playing for FRANCE and not for Belgium :(
When did she change nationalities? Any1 who knows?

Gosh, the only Walloon player (except for Justine of course;)) on the WTA changed nationalities :(

I've just checked the WTA-site and there, they also say that's she FRENCH :(

AlexSydney, I thought you were Australian?
But you've got a Swedish flag behind your name, are you from Sweden?

I think Emilie just changes nationalities to get a direct entry (WC) into a tournament! She kept her Belgian nationality till just after WTA-Antwerp. Now she's French (she's playing the French Challengers now).
Maybe she will be Belgian again when the Belgian summer Challengers start :rolleyes:

I hope she won't get a WC into the main draw of The Frenchspeaking Community Championships (or whatever it's called) in Brussels!!!! That's would be unfair towards the real Belgians!

*BUMP for AntennA*

The story is:
As a junior, Emilie was playing for BELGIUM. When she started to play on the ITF/WTA, she was also playing for Belgium, so she got WCs into the Belgian tournaments... When she started playing in French challengers, she suddenly said she was "FRENCH"! :confused: So she got WCs into those French ITFs!
Last year, she got a WC into the Qualifying of Brussels again.
Now, this year, she's French, but she's playing the Belgian Tennis Championships :confused::confused:

So the thing is: the girls switches nationalities to get WCs into Belgian/French tournaments and she now plays the Belgian Championships while she's listed as FRENCH on the WTAtour website! :rolleyes:

Hope this clears things up ;) :wavey:
