Have they determined who will play singles along with Amelie? I assume Emilie but Mary has been very successful on the red clay.

Mark Spruce

I do love the pic. Dosen't Mary look such a sweety

Yes it will be interesting to see how the singles choice. Mary is of course a good one. Yes also Emilie just won a tournament as well.

So this hopfully will be a good win for France hopefully.

She actually won two in a row: Casablanca and Estoril (both on red clay)! ;)

Good to see Nathalie on the French singles line-up, knew it would have to be her or Mary - Emilie's been playing well, but she is never a sure bet to win against other middle-range type players.

Ryan
Apr 23rd, 2004, 01:14 PM
Hopefully France doesn't rely on Nathalie too much in singles. Mary is a MUCH safer bet, and I would easily pick Loit over Dechy at this point.

Apr 23rd, 2004, 01:56 PM
They're going by rankings which seems fair to me - I'd love to see Maam play as well but everyone deserves a shot and Amélie and Maam carried the team the end of last year.

VIVA LA FRANCE.

I would have picked Loit for singles as well.

But I think that the match ups can change right ???? Is there a rule/time limit where they can change the line up before a match.

Good Luck German girls!! Hopefully Anna-Lena can win a match, and against the French No. 2 ist's really not impossible... But i really don't understand why Rittner plays singels, she hasn't played any Match this Year, and Weingärtner on a good day is much better and then it's not impossible to beat a Top-Player...

I agree and think Dechy deserves a chance to play, but I hope they don't use her in big matches as they progress farther into the event because I think Mary is the better mental player.
