after a long time the brazilians girls are going to have an project
to help her work in tennis.
The male tennis in Brazil has a great support but the girls haven't any support from sponsors and media.
Today we have 4 or 5 players on top 100 but we don't have any girls on top 200.
The number one of Brazil is ranked #234 on WTA.

We had Maria Bueno (former Wimbledon champion singles and doubles- US OPEN and Australian Open)and other players ranked on top 100 but since 1989 we don't have any girls on TOP 100.

These are the girls that will receive the support:
Vanessa Menga (SP), 25 years old, ranking #374º
Marina Tavares (AL), 17, Wimbledon doubles Junior Semifinalist
Jenifer Widjaja (SP), 15, nº 1 on Brazilian ranking (16 YEARS)
Ana Paula Saviole (SP), 16
Milena de Araújo (SP), 15
Viviane Costa (SP), 17
Marcelle Alves Cláudio (SP), 13
Paula Madruga (RJ), 14
Ana Clara Duarte (RJ), 13

The head coach will be
Carlos Alberto KIRMAYR former coach of Gabriela Sabatini,
Conchita Martinez and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario.
These are the team:

José Rubens D´Elia- fisical coach
Odete Durigon - fisioterapyst;
Leonardo Mascaro- sport psicologist
Cecília Yoshizawa(former player) - marketing

So The brazilians are happy for you.
Good luck and Good job!!!:bounce: :bounce: :hearts: :hearts:

I hope to see the brazilians girls on top again.

I saw Jenifer Widjaja play briely last year when I visited Brazil last year. The only thing I really remember about her besides the cool name was the fact she had an awesome backhand.

I think this is great for Brazil and Angelique beware!!!!! hehehe

But my question is why isn't Carla Tiene, who I think the top Brazilian player, recieving the support?

Good luck to all the Brazilian girls. :) Hopefully, they will have enough good players to outweigh their bagel girls. ;)

well Cessy is right!

I was in CAMPOS DO JORDAO last week and Vanessa who will turn 26 very soon will never reached top 200 again. I saw her matches and I can tell that she is good only in doubles. In singles her game is quite weak. her serve is poor along her baseline game-very erratic.

I`m not saying that Idon`t like her, but they are better players like ALVES, COLOSIO, TIENE WHO DESERVE MORE THAN HER A SPONSORSHIP.

GUYS I watched COLOSIO MATCHES AND SHE IS THE ONE WHO HAS MORE TALENT AND IF SHE EARNED A SPONSORSHIP SHE WILL REACH TOP 200 VERY SOON AND MAYBE IN 2 YEARS TOP 100.

It would be good news for the WTA if more South American players start doing better in the tour...There are several good and high ranked male players from Argentina, Brasil, Chile and other countries, but after Fabiola Zuluaga's injury, only Argentina is well represented in the top 100...Maybe Paola Suarez and Clarisa Fernandez(sp?) this year breakthrough could provide the necessary spark for more incentives and sponsorships...
