Hey Rachel Viollet is back u go girl! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Nov 13th, 2001, 08:26 PM
poor svetlana krivencheva and poor Dimana Krastevitch (BUL) , they were so close, but lost in 3 setters. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Go Maria-Gusheva-Geznenge you have been steam rolling lately, Maria has alot of potential, she hits a real hard , hard, hard ball and i think next year she can make a debut in the top 100, she has the skill, but she needs the experience and the mental ability(she needs to work some on her game)<br />but after all she is only 21 year of age sooo, she still is quite young.

go maria, qualify and then win this <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

rated_next: Brie was an "aquantaince" of mine, then I introduced her to somebody else I knew and she acted like she was above God and didn't want to talk to him. Ever since then, I have disliked her. I used to be one of her biggest fans.

We used to communicate frequently thru e-mail, but oh well.

Nov 14th, 2001, 04:27 AM
Talked to Jackie on Sunday and Monday, she's fine , played some good stuff here.

I guess she lost today as I've not got her result <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> guess she's feeling down .

Nana's form has been terrible lately, I'm wondering if the score is actually the other way around like it was a couple of weeks ago. I can't imagine her beating Sarah so easily, who's playing very well lately.

I hope the score's correct... <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

Irina's tall, very skinny, she's got a pretty good game, good at net as she's proven in doubles before, one-handed backhand, pretty nice serve. I think she was probably lacking some of the confidence in singles before, and now that she's been playing more and getting the wins together her game is really starting to come together aswell. Saw her play qualies in Toronto she easily beat Asagoe to qualify, I was very impressed with how easily she handled her.

Good luck in the finals Irina <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Oh no Janet!!! <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

One more win would have allowed her to gain Aus Open direct entry! <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />My faves always just miss out!<br />She better play West Columbia coming up...

woohoo Irina............... to win this tournament!!!!!!!!! well done! now finish it off!!!

Nov 18th, 2001, 03:43 PM
Come on Seda, I hope you can win this final!!

For those of you who've never seen Seda play, well, I would say she has an attractive game, hitting things from the baseline more or less all the time, a fairly hard hitter but with no distinct strengths and few 'killer' shots. I think she's probably ventured in to the net about twice since the start of this year <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> But I enjoy watching her, pity she lost 1st rd last time I saw her ;(

Well done Seda on getting to the final!

Yah, Seda is quite short (like Amanda, and she has blonde hair too! lol), so she doesn't really have a big weapon!

Hoping this will be enough to get her into MD AO!!! Please please!!!

Nov 19th, 2001, 03:51 AM

great stuff Irina <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

also very happy Alina and Abigail picked up the doubles <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Nov 19th, 2001, 07:36 AM
Wow, how many is that this year for Irina? 4? 5?<br />More? lol. She really has improved heaps this year.

Admittedly I know next to nothing about her (except that she was highly ranked in dubs last year with Black)...but I am definately gonna keep my eye out for her this summer!

What is her rank now BTW?

Congratulations Irina Selyutina! (what a cool name! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> )

Great stuff, Irina ! This win should take her ranking to about 88.

TBE - you mentioned her BH. Irina has got a fantastic topspin BH, and she hits it so elegantly.

Irina Selyutina goes up 10 places to 87.<br />Seda Noorlander goes up 12 places to 94, her best ranking position for nearly 2 years, and easily enough to get direct entry to the A.O.<br />Well done to both.<br />Yes, Seda is quite short, but still five or six inches taller than Amanda C!
