good luck, swiss girls.
I think this is going to be closer than expected:
1. you never know with patty
2. emanuelle hasn't played very well recently
3. asa can be dangerous
4. sofia is one to watch

Why doesn't Marie (sorry I can't spell her last name at all) play for Switzerland? I mean I understand Martina not playing, but shouldn't Marie play above Daniela AND Myriam?

marie-gaiané has been having troubles with the swiss tennis federation for a long time; apparently they always said she had no talent and never supported her. now that she had a breakthrough of sorts (I mean, she's no. 47, above gagliardi), she and her father are asking for some kind of financial compensation. but the federation seems very stubborn. it's a real pity. imagine what a team the swiss could have!! martina, patty, marie, emanuelle, myriam.
sigh ...

I know! They would be like the third best team after the US (which could be Williams, Williams, Capriati, Seles, Davenport :eek: once BJK leaves which I hope will happen soon) and Belgium (Henin and Clijsters and 3 other people). They probably could also pull off beating Belgium as all that would have to happen is Patty would have to win ONE match vs. Henin or Clijsters as Martina would pretty much definately win her match. THe Swiss Federation seems so mean! Why would they ever say a player has no talent? :sad: I really like Marie Gaiane and think she is a good player. Too bad. GO SWITZERLAND!

Too bad Manu won't play. She withdraw due to an infection (don't ask me the name of it.)

But I still believe Switzerland can win even without her!!

As for MGM well I don't think it's only the swiss federation who is stubburn. But they have to sort it out themselfs.

of course you're right, doris, the family mikaelian doesn't seem very cooperative neither. but I still feel more sympathy for MGM, because she's the one who has to suffer the consequences.

Doris Loeffel
Jul 17th, 2002, 05:18 PM
True MGM is the one in between.

Just as well it doesn't seam to bother her too much....

.....exept for not playing Fed Cup it doesn't really afect her does it?

MGM, she's way too talented to let this bother her..

apparently it does:
1. she had big problems finding any proper sponsors
2. the tennis federation will pay for some of the costs for other players (e.g. physiotherapists), but not for marie

not being able to play fed cup probably bothers her the least ;)

I wonder if they'll get Emmanuelle to play singles tomorrow instead of Myriam...

And Myriam & Daniela for doubles rather than Myriam/Patty.

I think the Swiss need to ring some changes if they want to have a chance to win this tie.

well, I'm not really that surprised. patty can be so outrageously on/off. and myriam lost against asa, which is not that big a surprise. people just expect her to win everything now and forget that asa is higher ranked and very eperienced.
nice try, better luck next time.
