View Full Version : Alternates?

Aug 5th, 2004, 03:27 PM
If Barna and Weingartner do not participate in Athens, who will take their places? Smashnova-Pistolesi is suspect at the moment. In the mens' event, Guillermo Coria has withdrawn. Who replaces him? I read on Tennis Australia's website that Samantha Stosur is the fourth alternate into the womens' singles while Wayne Arthurs is the second alternate into the mens' singles. So I assume there is an alternate list of sorts that decides which players are next in. Does anyone know who might be replacing those players mentioned?

for the German ladies:
Marina Diaz Oliva (Argentina) and Melinda Czink (Hungary)

but I hope the nok will rethink its decision

Guillermo Coria hasn't withdrawn yet...He's waiting a couple of days to see if he can recover from his shoulder injury.

Martin Verkerk is out also with injury.

Guillermo Coria has oficially withdrawn today :sad:, and will be replaced by Mariano Zabaleta.

He was playing doubles with David. Anyone knows if they will be replaced by an argentinian team?
