<font size=5>Mieles covers out desastrous campaign against Australia on their defeat in USA</font>

The Brazilian team began bad against unseeded Australia, with Barbara losing against Catherine Pierce in three sets, and Lara winning the sensation Daniela Turundhzov. And the confront was closed with Mieles loss to the australian team in doubles. "I'm trying to comeback. I had a tough week in Casablanca. And now defending Brazil on this tough competition." said the younger Miele.

Yesterday the Brazilian girls showed their power to the North-American girls. Barbara easily defeated Alexia Van Krumpt, in double 6-3, while Lara had to face 3 tie breakers to defeat Leslie Ann Messay. "I guess, I played my best match today. I hope I can keep this rythym." said Barbara Miele. "I'm disappointed cause we had the chance to compete for the title, and we lost the chance to Australia." Lara Miele expressed.

Barbara who caused problems in Casablanca last week, had a serious discussion with Brazil's captain, Nicole Lamanke Huber. "She thinks I am a machine! I will train when I want! She do not controls my body!" mad said Miele to Brazil's top seed, that will return in action on Gold Coast next week. "She is really a tough person to deal with. Lara is more patiente. Barbara do whats she thinks is right. But never is right." Lamanke Huber said in the Press Conference.

The Mieles also won the doubles, and now will fight for the 5th or 4th place. "I guess that we now have to fight for the highest position. We have to understand this." Lara speaked.
