Anjelica de la Courtiere arrives in Tashkent
Interview with Anjelica de la Courtiere
Q. Welcome to Tashkent!
DLC: Thanks, it's great to be here.
Q. Can we ask about last week? It was disappointing for you, I take it.
DLC: Yes, losing in my home country in all three semifinals was disappointing. I felt I could do better, but there's always next year.
Q. Why or when did you decide to come to Tashkent? A tier 4 event...
DLC: Well, when Eva and I were making our schedules we decided to play here. She's historically done well here, and she didn't want to play on clay anymore. I didn't want to play on grass so soon, either (laughs). So we decided to come here. Plus I've never been in this part of the world before. It's an interesting experience for me.
Q. Selima Valentine will make her return here.
DLC: Will she? That's nice. Hopefully I can finally get a win over her, I seem to have a mental block when I player her, but whatever.
Q. What are your plans after Tashkent?
DLC: I'll be playing Eastbourne and then Wimbledon... and then I'll take a break.
Q. Thanks, Anjelica!
DLC: My pleasure.

Great win for Anjelica! :) She's looking forward to playing Selima again, one of the few players she has a losing record to. She hopes to finally gain a victory over her.

Lucia Ruiz-Garrigues-This it has been my first tournament and although I have lost I am in favor happy of for having obtained my first victory...I wishes good luck for Selima :)
I'm really pleased with my performance this week. To win 2 matches at my first event as a graduated pro really boosts my confidence and I hope to continue it against Eva.

selima valentine (17) - back with a win after accident
selima at the opening ceremony
selima after her match: "oh, i am quiet happy with my game today. i didn't play any match since nearly three months and started practising three weeks ago. so what could i have expected. lucia had a really good start with her win over keller and a very good one in the first set against me. she was up 3:0, i started very nervously, then she had another break ball in the fourth game, maybe she would have won the first set, if i hadn't saved it. the second set was much closer compared to the first. i think, there was no easy game. all games had to be decided in an advantage. i had more luck than her. i must say that she's an excellent talent and a very nice person. we will hear more of lucia in the near future."
was there anything you were not happy with, selima?
selima: "yes, my serve was unacceptable. i think i did 17 double faults. according to the statisticsmy fastest serve was 148km/h, in the past i had an average of 167km/h. have to work on it. but i must admit that it was also a result of the excellent return of lucia. i cannot remember playing a girl with such hard strokes."
selima during her match vs. lucia ruiz-garrigues, she won 6:3 6:3
her next opponent will be anjelica de la courtiere.
selima valentine on her next opponent: "anjelica and me, we know each other very well. she knows how i am playing the same i do with her game. i think the match will show me, how far i am now and where will i have to work on. i must say that i am very excited playing her again. she's such a nice person and it's always fun playing, practising and talking with her."
selima about her double opponents, keller and l'ane: "both are very talented, we'll see what danii and me can do. maybe we can make some noise here."
Well Done Selima on getting to the finals in your first tourny back:D
Happy that you won your first match shame you lost the second one:sad:
Jun 14th, 2002, 09:35 PM
:D thanx monica_rules!
!!!omg!!! selima is in the final, in both - singles and doubles!!!
danni thanx for your great support during the match, to bad you lost :sad:
but think positive, we're in the doubles final!!!
selima after her match: "i never thought i would win against anjelica today. i was down 2:5 and 0:30 in the first, she played amazing didn't any errors. it was hard for me to go with her speed and her hard service. but then suddenly she stopped playing hard, she didn't serve very well, she did many double faults. i don't know - i hadn't the possibility to talk to her after the match - but i think she had some problems with her shoulder. i hope that it isn't serious."
