good luck german girls!
Feb 6th, 2002, 03:21 AM
Thanks for the draw bluepastures.
Another chance for Shiho Hisamatshu who is a LL :) .
Tough draw for Nan Nan who has to play the #5 seed (Lucie Ahl, #175). This is some real test for her :eek: .
Nan Nan will be playing 2nd match this Wednesday. Hope she can take some rest...
Maria is not in a better position with the #4 seed :eek: .

Rita Kuti Kis
Shocked at Rita playing here - she has LOTS of points to defend from the South American WTA tournaments over the next few weeks. A desperate attempt to regain form?
Feb 7th, 2002, 12:02 AM
I think Rita did the right thing to come here. She needs wins. And she has started this tournament with a great win.
Feb 7th, 2002, 01:03 AM

Maria Antonia :hearts: :kiss: :hearts:
A lot of points for Maria!! :bounce:
Rita Kuti Kis is a top90 :D
Well done Maria!!
Feb 8th, 2002, 12:19 AM
The surprising score for me was Mia Buric beating Sylvia Plischke
(a quarterfinalist at Roland-Garros in '99) in straight sets.
As a qualifier Buric has played more matches than anyone else in the main draw, and yet she's still won both her main draw matches in straight sets, impressive!
Still, she'll have a tough task against Sanchez Lorenzo tomorrow.
Has Hannah Collin pulled out of the doubles too?
Feb 8th, 2002, 12:27 AM
Yes, Hannah pulled out of the doubles event too. The pair is being replaced by Severine Beltram (FRA) / Anne-Laure Heitz (FRA). The French won their first round doubles match 6-4 6-3.
Feb 8th, 2002, 12:46 AM

Thanks for posting the results Bluepastures. This week Nan Nan is not pairing with Tian Tian, who is certainly taking some well deserved rest and getting herself ready for the next $25,000 event.
Good results of Zi / Jie but next match will be difficult against the #1 seeds. Good results for Tian Tian too with Helen. Another tough match here again against the #2 seeds.
Really no luck for the Chinese players in this draw :confused: :( .
Feb 8th, 2002, 01:08 AM
well done Mia, Eva, Olga, Galina, and Dragana :)
too bad for Renata :(
Feb 8th, 2002, 01:54 AM
Keep going Maria Antonio, Mia, Galina, and Dragana!!!!
Feb 8th, 2002, 02:32 AM
Mia won :bounce:
but Sabine and Magdalena lost :sad:
Feb 8th, 2002, 03:08 AM
Damn Kelly and Hannah lost:sad:
Glad to see Mari Antonio coming back into some form, hope she keeps it up.
