Wow, four current top ten players are committed here (Venus, Martina, Jelena, and Kim), plus great clay courters like Sanchez-Vicario, Martinez, Suarez and Ruano-Pascal. This looks like it will be quite a tournament.:)

Mar 13th, 2002, 10:43 PM
great field!
I'm confident that the winner 2 out of the last 3 years will take care of business once again. :)

Mar 13th, 2002, 11:15 PM
Thanks!Go Martina!:)

Mar 13th, 2002, 11:43 PM
Doesn't this take place about the same time as Fed Cup? Maybe that's why only one top US player. So if Venus commits to this she won't be in Fed Cup I suppose.

Mar 13th, 2002, 11:46 PM
Great Field, a lot of my faves.

Paola Suarez:kiss:
Virginia Ruano Pascual:kiss:
Daja Bedanova:)
Francesca Schiavone;)

Martian Martin

Good luck Martina and Jelena! :)

Wouldn't be surprised to see Anna playing here as a wild card either.

JCFan-Fed cup is the week before.

Mar 14th, 2002, 12:13 AM
In this article it says Fed Cup is April 27-28. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20020228/ap_on_sp_te_ne/ten_fed_cup_1 This tournament is April 29-May 5, right? Not to mention Fed Cup is in the states making it impossible to play both.

Mar 14th, 2002, 12:44 AM
Hey JCfan, that is odd, as the 'official' wta calender from their site says fed cup 1st rnd is played week of april 20!
Maybe Us have a deal to play week later?

What a field!! :bounce: :hearts:


Venus Williams
Kim Clijsters
Jelena Dokic
Iroda Tulyaganova

Hehe, looks like Venus and Jelena will have no problems defending points here... cause there are more quality points to be won this year! :D :bounce:

Mar 14th, 2002, 02:28 AM
A good field, hopefully B . Eurosport will show some coverage. Has Anna K said if she is playing yet, i expect she will to get her ranking up, thats if she wants to get back into the top 20 like she said before the end of the year.

GO MARTINA:bounce: :bounce: and ANNA :bounce: :bounce: (if she goes)

Mar 14th, 2002, 04:03 AM
good field :)

Lina's likely to be in Bol this year as she couldnt make it last yr.

Mar 14th, 2002, 04:06 AM
Fed Cup is played on Fri, Sat, Sun. This event starts on Monday - would be hard to do both... even with a late start in Germany and a 1st rd bye.

Mar 14th, 2002, 06:47 AM
Nice to see Venus defending her title! With Amelia Island, hamburg and Rome......she should be well prepared for RG!!!!!!!! GO VENUS!!!!!!!

Mar 14th, 2002, 06:50 AM
Looks like Marti's first clay court title of the year could come here! Iroda is also a strong clay courter so I would not count her out either! :)

Looks like Venus 2nd clay court title of the year would come soon! :bounce: :kiss:

Mar 14th, 2002, 12:42 PM
go marti :)
hope venus is no. 1 then and you'll get your 100 points when you beat venus in the finals :D

Mar 14th, 2002, 02:50 PM

Mar 14th, 2002, 03:31 PM
Babsi Schett is also playing here

Mar 14th, 2002, 03:59 PM
Go Martina!

Mar 14th, 2002, 06:11 PM
Add Nathalie Dechy to the list, she gave her commitment to Frau Antje :bounce:

Mar 14th, 2002, 08:20 PM
hmmm...Kim won't play probably...she'll only play Miami, Rome and Berlin before RG...she still has to spare her arm :sad:

But if she does play

GO KIMMY! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
