Nathalie is going to play in 3 tournaments in the 'Australian Journey':
First on January the 5th in Auckland, New Zealand. She is in the MD.
Week after, (January 12th) Nath signed up for 2 tournaments, first priority is in Sydney and second is in Hobart.
As for now, she's in qualis for both events. Let's hope She will get into Hobart MD :angel:
And finally, at January 19th Nath will play in her 13th consecutive Australian Open main draw in Melbourne. We all remember her great run in 05' when she made the Semis :drool: Let's hope she will repeat that :p
Here's hoping for a sucessful Australian season :D
Thanks for opening the thread Yarden ;)
