good luck girls :)

Interesting Petra Cetkovska had to qualify, wouldn't be suprised if she won the whole thing.

And she is the highest ranked junior of them all @12 in ranks

Poor girls who have got Petra in their sections

pretty glad Maria and Evgenia are in other half and in diff Quarters :)

well done to Petra, too bad for Kristina aswell :(

Eggy, what is this 11-9 stuff? That's ridiculous! These are juniors. They should play tie breaks only. Unless it is a junior grand slam.

Udachi Maria! Who does she think she is? Maria Sharapova! ;) Great wins for Masha!

And Eggy, is Evgenia still trying to become a Belgian citizen?

Who will win between Maria and Evgenia? :confused:

May 17th, 2002, 03:46 AM
only few events outside slams have this and this isn't even a Grade A .......... pretty mad if you ask me

Evgenia is not turning Belgian now :)
I'm picking her over Maria but it will be pretty close.

Petra Cetkovska should still win this event ....... a qualifier on paper she is but not to all concerned.

the cat
May 17th, 2002, 03:41 PM
Why in the world is Petra a qualifier?

I would be very pleased with a Maria versus Lucie final! ;) Except that Lucie always beats Maria. :eek:

May 18th, 2002, 04:25 AM
missing QF
Petra Cetkovska (Q) CZE d. 4-Oxana Lyubtsova (10) UKR 6-1 6-1

16 Maria Kirilenko (6) RUS d. Evgenia Linetskaia (15) RUS 6-1 6-1 :) :eek:
Petra Cetkovska (Q) CZE d. Lucie Safarova (2) CZE 6-7(3) 6-4 6-4

May 18th, 2002, 04:27 AM
well done Maria :)

bad luck Evgenia

cat ....... Petra had to qualify as she entered late as i suspected.

on the WTA if a qualifier enters late and then qualifies if she is ranked high enough to be seeded then she is seeded but not on the juniors.

May 18th, 2002, 05:40 AM
Has Eugenia changed her mind? I thought it was a done deal that she'll become Belgian.


May 18th, 2002, 11:01 AM
Sofie (Justinator) said she's no longer training there so she's no longer gonna apply to be Belgian.

Good news for us :) She's only 15 after all and promising.

May 18th, 2002, 04:22 PM
Oh Eugenia :sad:

I don't know what happened, she and her family left Belgium at the end of last year. In the official tennis magazine of the VTV (Playtennis) they never wrote anything about it. I think it was in September last year that they wrote she and her family was going to apply for the Belgian nationality.

May 18th, 2002, 06:18 PM
According to the Italian Federation webiste:

(6)Maria Kirilenko (RUS) b. (q)Petra Cetkovska (CZE)

but it didn't post the score... we will have to wait, I guess...


:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

May 18th, 2002, 06:26 PM
woo-hoo :)

way to go Masha :)

she's back after an injury lay-off :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

the cat
May 18th, 2002, 07:43 PM
What a pleasant surprise! Well done Maria! She played more like Maria Sharapova than Maria Kirilenko! :eek: In fact, this title for Maria K. is bigger than any 18u title Maria S. has won. Wow! :D

Sharky, you are everywhere! ;)

Eggy, what was her injury? :confused:

Masha K. looks even skinnier than Masha S! :eek: Check out the picture of her pipecleaner arms at www.*****************/Tournaments/International/SantaCroce.htm

Congrats to Maria!:eek: Totally destroying Eugenia!:eek: Too bad for Petra, Lucie, and Eugenia though.:(

May 18th, 2002, 08:54 PM
Yes Cat. It's unbelievable! :hearts:

She is thinner than Maria Sharky-ova, you think so? Tell me what you see:

Photo of Maria K was taken in Feb 2002.. she looks perfectly fine. Just perfect. Maria is way taller and only 1 kg heavier than Maria K.


May 18th, 2002, 09:20 PM
Finally, the score is:

Maria Kirilenko won 6-0; 6-4 in the final match! :eek: :eek: :eek:

She must be playing so well after coming back with an injury!


:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

May 18th, 2002, 11:51 PM
wow ........ what a scoreline :):bounce: :bounce:

the cat
May 19th, 2002, 01:31 AM
Wait a second Sharky! :eek: Which Maria is that? Are you playing tricks on me? :confused: I bet Maria K. is taller than she is listed. The physical statistics are almost never correct on female tennis players.

Sharky, where did you find that photo? You are amazing!

I can't believe Maria K. beat Petra so easily in a grade 1 final. Eggy must be egg-static! :bounce:

Though I'm kind of glad Maria didn't have to play Lucie in the final. Lucie always beats Maria. But this is the new Maria. So maybe even the new Maria would have beaten Lucie!

Udachi Maria K! Do it for the Federation! Do it for yourself! And do it for all the Russian Maria's! ;)

May 19th, 2002, 04:13 AM
Congrats Maria K :D
