De Vries & Baijot have a WTA-ranking so they should've been allowed to play right? :confused:

9 in the qualy draw :eek:

so the pre-qualification didn't have to be played, since all four of them are in the qualies :D
there should be some Belgians in the second round, so I expect and hope

for the main draw, I think Kirsten can handle most girls that are in the qualy draw, I don't think Caroline stands a chance against Bovina, but you never know and Els, it's indoors and Barna isn't playing good this year (injury and all) so she might survive round 1

I just hope that there will be a lot of Belgians reaching the quarters :)

Does anyone know what Kirsten has scheduled for the remainder of the season? Call me crazy but I think Kirsten should come down and play the 25K tournaments in Australia at the end of the year, they normally aren't as strong as normal 25K events so would be a good opportunity to get some matches in the aussie heat and learn to deal with being under pressure as the one expected to win. If she can keep her rank around 140ish she may even scrape into Auckland quallies. If she did that I think that would give her a great preparation for AO quallies.

Els, come back and play quallies on the gold coast, I hope she doesn't go to Auckland. And she better not stop before the end of next year, Belgium has to win the Fed Cup next year, yeah I know it will be tough but I think they can do it, the Russians and French and the US have more depth but if Kim stays fit she can beat all those players and she and Els are great doubles players so i think a Fed Cup title would be a great way to send Belgium's Fed Cup queen out:D
