Reuters AP - The fiesty Cuban FWTT player, Gisele Noventz had a really tough moment this week to beat a player who led their head to heads 2-0. USA's Katerina Shawfink in three tight sets.

"I knew it would be tough." said Noventz "Believe it or not, that girl always makes me sweat" added.

Noventz caused a controversy at FWTT allegging racism on the tour and mentioned names liek Tami Sugarn, Marteena Huubere and Brenda Van Haak. The last two didn't pronounce an answer, but Sugarn irritated answered Noventz' accusations.

"Why is she angry? She really did." said Noventz. "She needs to stop trying to look a saint, cause everyone knows shes not."

Now Noventz is playing Samantha Kraston. "I've never heard of her, but she's on the next round so it means i'll have to be ready cause she probably will want to eat me alive.."

Turundzhov makes winning return


Turundzhov hits a backhand winner against Hingisafrialia

Australian tennis star Daniela Turundzhov has made an unexpected but successful return to the FWTT Tour today with a 3 set victory over 8th seed Hingisafrilia at the Bastad Tournament in Sweden. Turundzhov started slowly, as Hingisafrialia dominated the immobile Australia with countless winners. However soon Turundzhov found ehr feet and began to compete with Hingisafrilia and eventually saved 2 match points to take the match in a third set tiebreak. We interviewed Turundzhov after the match

Q: Daniela, what the fuck are you doing in town?

A: (laughs) I know I know. I said I'd need some more time to recover but I'm here. I asked for a WC and when I found one I just thought 'what the heck' so I hopped on a plane over and it seems worth it right now.

Q: When did you arrive?

A: This morning and my match was tonight so it was a tight squeeze

Q: Hingisafrilia - tell us about the match

A: It was tough. I mean what more can you say. She won bol without dropping a set and clay's her best surface so I knew it was going to be tough. She hit a lot of winners early but I really stuck with it and it came off towards the end. I'm ecstatic with this win

Q: Herrera next, do you think you'll get through that one?

A: I'd like to. I don't think I'm playing very well though. I'm still hitting quite a few UE but we'll see. I mean you have to be positive

Q: What do you think you need to work on right now?

A: Probably my movement. I lost a lot of fitness when I was in hospital so I need to get my movement into gear. I'm also working on my serve so I think that overall I'm working on everything

Thanks Daniela

Thanks and Vamos

BASTAD - Gisele Noventz' form seems to be coming back, as she defeated Samantha Kraston on the quarterfinals in straight sets, and now will face a tough cookie. Tiffani Eggert.

"Yeah it's a little bit weird to see Tiffani playing these type of tournament. She usually does so well on Slams." said Noventz about her next match.

"I know it's going to be tough. Everytime it's tough to play her, cause she's so consistent and she knows what to do in the right moment."

About today's match, Noventz scored nothing more than 14 aces, and a 122mph service ace to close the match on the tight tie breaker.

"Samantha is a good player. She fought all the time, I guess I was just in my real game." said Noventz.

"If I could play like I did against her, I doubt someone would defeat me."

The four top seeds advanced for the semifinals. Noventz is the 4th seeded player.
