My comments:

Laura Pous Tio:
She was n155 at the end of 2004, she's know a solid member of the top 100. She's this week up 13 spots from her previous best ranking by winning Cueno 50 K$ challenger as n2 seed of the draw. She seems to be a real clay court specialist. Considering her ranking now, she should definitely quit the challenger circuit and compete on the WTA tour.

Hana Sromova:
Sometimes, you've to be patient to do your best...that moto suits very well to Hana. She's been up closed to 100 places in the ranking since the end of last year. Step by step, she's getting closer to the Top 100. Will she be able to break it??.....at the age of 27!
This week, she's up 8 places and 6 places from her former best ranking. She reached the Semis in Cueno 50 K$ Challenger upsetting the 3 seed/n112 Ekaterina Bychkova before loosing to Conchita Martinez Granados (former n66)

*Carly Gullickson:
I put Carly on my comments not because of her last week results but because I forgot to list her last week! She was up 27 spots and broke the Top 200 (from n214 to n187) thanks to very goog perfs in Los Gatos 50 K$ challenger: runner up at Los Gatos 50 K$ challenger, she outsed 2 seeded player (3 seed/n126 Varvara Lepchenko and 7 seed/n186 Ryoko Fuda).
Sorry for that forgetting! :eek:

NOW I'M WAITING FOR YOUR COMMENTS! :bigwave: :bigwave: :bolt:

Laurita :worship: :worship: She's doing a great season but I think that she should play more WTA because she plays really well to continue in the challenger tournaments :kiss:
