I don´t know why there are German players in singles if the NOC didn´t nominate Barna and Weingärtner. Could they have been nominated by the ITF ?!

I don´t know why there are German players in singles if the NOC didn´t nominate Barna and Weingärtner. Could they have been nominated by the ITF ?!They probably got in through direct entry.

Direct acceptance for the event was based on the men’s and women’s rankings of 14 June 2004 with the first 56 places in the men’s and women’s singles draw based solely on ranking, with a limit of four players per country. Two places in each singles draw were selected by a Tripartite Commission comprising the International Olympic Committee, National Olympic Committees and the ITF, while six places were selected by the ITF Olympic Committee based on a combination of ranking and geographic diversity.
Top 56 woman get in directly, if you take into account that there are people who can't go (like Raymond or Shaughnessy, since they are the 5th and 6th USA women), the list goes down to the top80s for direct entry.

Following the announcement of players accepted and qualified for the Tennis Event at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens last week it is confirmed that Denisa Chladkova of the Czech Republic will not participate in the Women’s Singles Event.
Chladkova has been replaced by Mervana Jugic-Salkic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The addition of Jugic-Salkic brings the number of participating countries to 54.

they are allowed to make teams from the singles players as long as they don't exceed 6 players in total

What´s written in here is weird. How did Testud get in if France created a doubles team with Golovin in it ? And Barna and Marlene aren´t sent by the NOC of Germany.

Golovin is no longer playing the olympics anymore because testud is playing in her place for both singles and doubles

Yeah, I read an article about it and Chladkova said that she wouldn't be there because she wouldn't be in a good shape.... :rolleyes:
She knows 2,5 month before, that she won't be in a good shape.... :tape: :tape: :smash:

Anyway, it's true that she doesn't like to be a representant in FED CUP nor in OG so she could have tell the true and didn't fabricate that silly and stupid reasons.... :o

Well, Chladkova maybe was disappointed with her Wimby loss to Maleeva.....

Anyways, why is there no BUL doubles team?

That article was published 15.6.04, she tells always that her repre-form is bad (before FED Cup, OG Sydney).... :tape: :rolleyes:

Bye Denisa.... :wavey:

Maja Matevzic didn't get the GREEN LIGHT from the Slovenian OC ... it's not official yet but looks like she will not go to Athens (it was one of her goals this year)!

She didnt play for almost 6 months anyways. Is she trying to get an injury ranking? Then she cant play here. It's too bad though, she is now almost falling out of top 200.

I am surprised Dementieva and Myskina are in the Russian team as doubles partners - tough on Petrova whose ranking is better than both. Tough also on Zvonereva who is Myskina's usual partner - the Russians could have taken 6 ladies - and tough thirdly on Krasnoroutskaya who is Dementieva's usual partner of choice.
I'm surprised the Russians didn't take to Athens their quota of 6 players!

from http://www.itftennis.com/olympics/ :
"Olympic Acceptances Update on Tuesday
(06 - in fact, 09 - Aug 2004) The ITF will put out an update on acceptances for the Tennis Event at the Olympic Games on Tuesday 10 August..."
Does someone know why did they postpone exactly?
