Good Luck to our 2 girls in qualifying, and as this is Lucie Ahl's last professional tournament let's hope it's a good one :D
1st round Qualifying Draw;
Lucie Ahl vs. Gisela Dulko
Anne Keothavong vs. Bahia Mouhtassine (In progress)
Jane O'Donoghue vs. Mara Santangelo
Good Luck girls :D

Jane has the most winnable match imo and Lucie the most difficult. Good luck to all three British girls and also to Ireland's Kelly Liggan who I will cheer for in here too if she wins any matches.

Anne has lost the first set 4-6 :( :(
It's a shame that Jane has a nice draw, because she hasn't had the best preparation, and has been playing European Challengers on clay for the past few weeks! Let's hope she does her best :)

A Keothavong (GBR) def. B Mouhtassine (MOR)
4-6 7-5 6-0 :bounce:
Well Done Anne :D :D

Good luck to all the British girls, especially Lucie in her last event.
Aug 20th, 2003, 08:36 PM
Both Jane & Lucie lost, even though Jane IMO shoudl have won and she had plenty of chances but she didn't take them :( :(
Good Luck Anne in the next round!

Anne should definitely qualify! She's on her favourite surface, she had a good comeback in the first round, Washington's having a bad year, and so is Drake!
Aug 21st, 2003, 10:07 PM
Anne currently tied 1 set all with Washington. hope she can pull the win out.
Good win for Kelly Liggan over Birnerova 7-6 6-4 earlier. In the final round of qualies she'll play Salerni which is tough.
Aug 21st, 2003, 10:39 PM
Anne is at the moment 6-3 3-6 4-3 deuce a break up but the scoreboard has frozen
COME ON ANNE!:)
Aug 21st, 2003, 11:27 PM
Anne won 6-4 third set! Next up is Maureen Drake!

Good Luck Girls :D

Theresa Logar vs. Qualifier
Stepahnie Cohen-Aloro vs. Qualifier
Qualifier vs. Zuzana Ondraskova (perhaps)
Qualifier vs. Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo
Tathiana Garbin vs. Qualifier
Qualifier vs. Saori Obata (perhaps)
or maybe even;
Qualifier vs. Venus Williams (4) Think of the quality points ;)
