Well, IF (IF ;)) I have my driving licence I can take my parents' car :angel:

Mmmm that's already old news you know ;-)
Great of Laurence Courtois to be organizing such an event! Heiveld is right in the centre of Katelijne, and there is a train station in Katelijne. I know because I ended up there a few times forget to step off in Duffel. :-)

According to me, she won't need it. It's only a Grade 5, therefore her ranking should be high enough (I bet she'll even be seeded as in Clermont Ferrand, Grade 4 in August, she was seeded 4).

NO WTA-Ranking? NO wildcard???? :scratch: ? This is not a Junior Event ;)

Joel you're confusing it with the junior events Heiveld is also organising (2nd one at the end of this month).
I think Aude will get a WC for the $25K-event because Heiveld is her club. (or not anymore??)

I noticed at Heiveld Niels Dessein will finally play again. Pity he has to play a Grade 5, he exceeded that level by far before he got infured.

Oups... Indeed. I'm so focused on this junior event because it's an excellent opportunity to see our future stars.
Coming back to the $25000 event of next year, I think a wild-card for the qualies would be better. In the main draw she could get a really tough opponent whereas in the qualies she could be up to the task.
Wait and see...

Laurence Courtois will try to have either Kirsten Flipkens either Els Callens as main attraction. She'll contact them after the US Open

Isn't that a bit late to contact them?? I'm sure their schedule has to be more or less completely done for the rest of the year!

Aude will not play here. She can't get a wildcard cause of the limitation for wildcards at the age of 15 (and she used already 3, the limit)

She will finally play the Tarkett Open. Apparently the ITF grants her 2 extra WC until her birthday.

Why does Butkiewicz have to play pre-qualifying? She's one of the best Belgians players at the moment...

For some reason, the VTV doesn't like her.

Gisteren was er op RTV (regionale TV) de persconferentie van dit tornooi. Courtois, Vliegen en C Rochus (zag der echt goed uit :eek: ) waren aanwezig. Courtois wist te vertellen dat de WC's al aangeduid waren voor Leslie aan haar sterke periode begon en dat daar niet op teruggekomen kan worden. Vliegen was content dat Belgische mannen ook eens een kans krijgen op eigen bodem.
Voorts wisten ze nog te vertellen dat tickets aan zeer democratische prijzen gekocht konden worden (5-10 euro) gezien het om een dubbel tornooi ging...
