Go SLO!!


Won't there be a live scoring on te website? If not, Slovenian TV teletext will probably have game by game scoring. SLO teletext (http://www.rtvslo.si/portal/page?_pageid=33,47555&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL)

You have to type in number 568 to get the right site.

I can give scores while I'm on the net, but I don't know if I will be for both matches all the time.

Pitu translates to something in Spanish I think...can't remember what.

Would love Argentina to win, but I dont think they have a hope.

A baptism of fire now for Natalia...best of luck to her :)

BTW, it's disappointing Paola & Clarisa aren't here :(

Jorn
Apr 25th, 2003, 04:11 PM
Now the 'worst' match is won, so SLO have a 99% chance to win the tie :) Both should be able to beat Garbellotto , also /else a good chance to win the dubs.

maya
Apr 25th, 2003, 04:19 PM
Congratulations to Tina and good luck to Katarina!
The match was not one of the most exciting I have ever seen, but a win is a win :).

They showed Diaz Oliva watching (and jumping around on crutches) and Gaby Sabatini looking like a star undercover in dark outfit, dark sunglasses and dark hat.

Oh, and the crowd got a bit bigger - at the start there were more people on court than around it ;) ...

SLO leads 2/0
Tina Pisnik def. Maria Emilia Salerni 7/5,6/3
Katarina Srebotnik def. Natalia Garbellotto 6/1,6/2

I think tomorrow Salerni will play the first match, but then Rivera should switch Garbellotto for Gussoni, who beat Golovizina and Lamade last week. I know we'll lose 5/0 but at least lets fight a little more!!!

Well, i gues i have nothing to say about this, we all knew Slovenia would win this.
But Pitu should have done something after she was 3-1 in the second set!
And Garbellotto seemed like a good player, a top 200, maybe a top 100 if she works on her fitness and her net play. She had some really good groundstrokes today and this match will help her in the future.

I agree, the slovenian girls deserved to win, they put their best players and fight for the win in every match.

Good effort Pitu, she needs to get her confidence back, for moments she played brilliant tennis, but couldn't keep that level in the entire match.

And great wins for Natalia Gussoni, who is now 2-0 in W/L :D I am sure she will climb in the rankings this season and maybe in 2004 we can see her in more WTA tournaments. :angel:
