I visited the Nagaragawa Tennis Plaza from Friday to Sunday.
Here (http://www05.u-page.so-net.ne.jp/ra2/hori3/Gallery206-1.htm) are the Photos that I took at the tournament venue.

Please let me know the players name of the photos I captioned as "???", and
if a correction is necessary, could you post the correct name?

Thanks.

Superb photos and many thanks for them. I'm a friend of Julie's, so it is especially nice to see her reaction winning the title.

As for the names, I believe you have Trudi Musgrave identified as Lisa McShea in several of the photos. I thought McShea was a brunette, with short hair, but it's been a long time since I last saw her.

Again, many thanks for the photos. They are appreciated. Also, I forwarded a link to them for Julie to see.

Thanks for the pictures dhbvg87!!!

The left-handed girl on the third row with a red t-shirt is canadian player Vanessa Webb. (page 1)

Thanks for the photos :)

I think the girl in the red top (second row from top) is Vanessa Webb.

Also the two girls in the bottom right hand corner are Kristen Van Elden (black top) and Jenny Belobrajdic.

Jem, he got it right...that is in fact Lisa McShea and not Trudi. Lisa has usually kept her hair long, but I guess they change it a bit ;)

Jem is correct, there is one picture on Page 3 wrongly labelled as Lisa McShea practicing on centre court! That is actually Trudi Musgrave!

The other pictures labelled Lisa McShea are correct though!

Terry, is that really Jenny Belogradjic? I didn't know she was so solid! i thought she was petite!

Oh OK, I didnt see that pic on page 3 ;) Sorry Jem..yes that is Trudi cos she is a lefty.

Yep thats Jenny. She is quite a petite girl...she is not very solid it just seems that way cos of the towel...she has a great body from when I saw her last ;)

Here is another pic of her

Thanks dhb for the wonderful photos from Gifu. It was a great surprise as I scrolled down to see my lovely daughter Kristen with Jenny Belobradjic ! I quite often look at this site so I hope someone can post photos from Italy and Germany later on. Keep up the good work.

Many many thanks for your information, All.
I love watching tennis players, especially Australia's players. I am very happy to see Evie won the doubles.
She was not so friendly to fans but sometimes was lovely smiling.

Please visit Yoshi's tennis website. You can see more neat photos he took in Gifu.

To Kathy:
I took the photo on the practice court side. I am very sorry that I could not have an opportunity of
watching your daughter's play. She had lost in early round before I visited Gifu.

Great photos. Surprised to hear you say Evie wasn't friendly to the fans. At Eastbourne I met her, and she was really relaxed and friendly.
Anyone have any ideas who "??? on a practice court" is? Looks like another Aussie, but I'm just guessing.

Also that is not Trudi Musgrave on the first page with the headphones with Amanda Augustus.

The mystery girl, definitely not an Aussie I recognise unless its Sewell but I don't think so!

I think it could be Vanessa Webb's sister! You see her on another page at a computer and both girls look similar!

Thank you AUSBOY!

But I am not sure the left girl with the headphones (the right hand photo in the 9th row on the 1st page)
could be Vanessa's sister.
Aceman of Canada also saw the photo, but he did not identify the girl as Vanessa's sister.

Does anyone know the player's name of the left hand photo in the 3rd row on the first page?
Here (http://www87.sakura.ne.jp/~dhbvg87/Gallery/020503-041.jpg) is her another photo.
