Marta won't play in Krakow because she wants to be 300% fit for 2009. Don't worry - Marta will practice serve with her mother in November and December. Also she will practise with Korzonek - special moves and position in the night becuase she doesn't want to lose a match in 2009 in the night session.

She lost to Sharapova in Canada because she didn't have practice with Korzonek, after Beijing she would beat Maria.

Adrian you will see in 2009 her lungs will be bigger and bigger :lol:

Now that a lot of players withdrew, who do you want to get a WC?

WC for polish players in my opinion: Piter (100%) and Brózda. But would be nice if Zania and Kania got them.

I'd like to see Emma Laine and Andrea Petkovic here in Krakow as well. Maybe Anne Kremer too (it's probably one of the last opportunities to see her playing).

I think I'll be in Krakow on Friday, Saturday and Sunday ( at last matches).

From the players who are on the entry list (because I'd like some players who are not on the entry list to get a WC, but it doesn't seem very likely ;)) I wish the WC will be given to:

MD: Piter, Korzeniak, Gawlik (or Ula if she doesn't get in the MD directly)
Q: hard to choose, maybe Kania, Zaniewska, Jegiółka (or maybe Jans or Aleksandra Rosolska :shrug:)


Lucky you people who will attend this event, I wish I would be there too :lol: I will have to wait for the WTA tournament next year.

Special exempt is given to a player, who is supposed to play qualies in Krakow, but will reach semis in Bratislava or Nantes. If there is no such player(s), then first player(s) out of MD, will get in instead.

"What does the $ mean in front of a players name?"

It means, that this player has to pay a fine because of rule violations. A rule violation could be withdrawing late, verbal abuse, ball abuse etc. For verbal abuse a player usually will have to pay 100€ to the ITF. If one gets over a certain amound of money there will be $$ in front of her name. In 2007 there will be a new rule that says that if a player has more than 500€ to pay she cannot enter an ITF tournament before she hasnt paid her bills. The $ will be removed if all the money has been paid.

Salwator Cup: tenis powraca do Krakowa
W końcu w Krakowie odbędzie się turniej tenisowy z prawdziwego zdarzenia.


Już w sobotę na kortach Wola Sport Paradise startują eliminacje do Salwator Cup, ranga ITF, największego wydarzenia w kobiecym tenisie w tygodniu, w którym rozegrane zostaną również mistrzostwa WTA w Doha.

Turniej o miano najlepszej tenisistki świata pokrzyżował wielkie plany organizatorów, którzy chcieli, by gwiazdą imprezy została Agnieszka Radwańska. W Krakowie wystąpi jednak i tak bardzo mocna ekipa z najwyżej rozstawioną Rosjanką Klejbanową oraz dwiema ćwierćfinalistkami Wimbledonu: Tajką Tanasugarn i Francuzką Bremond.

Najwyższa ranga

Turniej główny będzie rozgrywany od poniedziałku w hali Bronowianki przy ul. Zarzecze. Eliminacje w weekend na obiekcie Wola Sport Paradise przy ul. Koło Strzelnicy. Dyrektorem imprezy jest Krzysztof Jordan, który w tym roku organizował już turniej panów w Poznaniu. Firma Salwator w trybie awaryjnym zastąpiła Xerox, który wycofał się z tytularnego sponsoringu.

W Krakowie udało się powołać do życia wydarzenie, które już na stałe ma szansę wpisać się do kalendarza międzynarodowej federacji tenisowej, a w przyszłości stać się turniejem WTA. W tym roku z powodu braku sponsora nie odbył się w Warszawie tradycyjny turniej pań a jedynie pokazówka na kortach Warszawianki. Impreza krakowska jest więc największym przedsięwzięciem organizacyjnym w Polsce jeśli idzie o turniej kobiet o punkty rankingowe.

Dla wyjaśnienia: ITF Women's Circuit to cykl turniejów (popularnych challangerów) międzynarodowej federacji tenisowej (ITF), które są skierowane do zawodowych tenisistek. Nie mogą w nich uczestniczyć tylko te zajmujące miejsce w pierwszej dziesiątce rankingu WTA (organizacji kobiecego tenisa, która ma własny cykl turniejów). Z tego powodu w grze pojedynczej nie mogłaby wystąpić Agnieszka Radwańska. Turniej w Krakowie ma najwyższą rangę ITF i najwyższą dostępną pulę nagród dla takich wydarzeń: 100 tys. dolarów. Punkty zdobywane w imprezach ITF liczą się do rankingu WTA.

Zwyciężczyni gry pojedycznej, jak i debla otrzyma 75 punktów. Najlepsza singlistka zarobi też 15 tys. dolarów. Zawodniczki otrzymają ponadto zwrot kosztów zakwaterowania. Tzw. hospitality to cecha turniejów wyższej rangi ITF i coś, co z pewnościa zachęca tenisistki do przyjazdu na taką imprezę.

W organizację turnieju mocno zaangażowała się krakowianka Joanna Sakowicz, numer 358 na liście rankingowej. Sama nie zagra, ale oprowadzi po Krakowie swoje koleżanki. Jest dumna, że udało się w mieście, skąd pochodzą najlepsze polskie tenisistki (siostry Radwańskie, Anna Korzeniak), zorganizować turniej zawodowy.

Salwator Cup to siódmy turniej ITF kobiet w Polsce w tym sezonie. W ostatnim, pod koniec sierpnia w Katowicach (25 tys. USD), wygrała 20-letnia Słowaczka Lenka Wienerova. Dwa tygodnie po Krakowie wystartuje halowy turniej w Opolu (25 tys. USD).

Kto przyjeżdża

Z grona zawodniczek, które wycofały się z udziału w krakowskim challangerze należy wymienić znane nazwiska: Soranę Cirsteę, Petrę Cetkovską, Karolinę Sprem, Olgę Sawczuk, Andreję Klepac, Tathianę Garbin, Marinę Erakovic, Sandrę Zahlavovą, Julię Vakulenko czy Jelenę Dokic (wystąpiła w Katowicach).

Na liście startowej ostało się 14 pań z pierwszej setki rankingu WTA. Alisa Klejbanowa miała bardzo dobry sezon i jako numer 35 na świecie zostanie rozstawiona najwyżej. Zaraz za nią plasuje się Tamarine Tanasugarn, Tajka wychowana w USA. Niemka Sabine Lisicki, nr 3 to córka imigrantów z Wrocławia. Rosjanka Anastazja Pawljuczenkowa doskonale zna się z siostrami Radwańskimi, z którymi rywalizowała na najwyższych szczeblach w juniorach. Zachwycająca w tym sezonie Anne Keothavong, lwowianka Jelena Wesnina czy mężatka (ewenement w profesjonalnym tenisie) Barbora Zahlavova to kolejne znane postaci kobiecego tenisa, które ujrzymy na Bronowiance.

"Dziką kartę" dostała Gisela Dulko, nr 57 WTA. Argentynka wyraziła chęć przyjazdu już po zamknięciu zgłoszeń. 23-latka z Buenos Aires miała wielki talent, ale w pewnym momencie kariery po prostu zatrzymała się w rozwoju i nie osiągnęła sukcesów do jakich była predestynowana. Dwie pozostałe "dzikie karty" dostały krakowianki: Urszula Radwańska i Anna Korzeniak. Więcej Polek w turnieju głównym raczej nie będzie.

Wejście na imprezę aż do piątku jest bezpłatne. Trzeba będzie zapłacić tylko za połfinały singla i finał debla w niedzielę oraz finał singla w niedzielę. Od środy do piątku trwać będzie w Krakowie również Pro Tennis Conference, światowa debata o "białym sporcie".

Iceland
Oct 30th, 2008, 06:36 PM
For an ITF standard, yes, of course. Former top 30 player who has a WTA title, pretty good, I would say.
Having said that, tennis is so discreet in Poland that I doubt that people attending the tournament will have a clue on who she is. They might prefer cheering blindly for a Pole after all.

3 Poles in MD clearly are not enough I agree but for the show, it's better to have Dulko than Cieplucha or Jegiolska who wouldn't win more than 3 games at such a level. Shame on Marta to not compete here.

Dexter
Oct 30th, 2008, 06:48 PM

News from salwatorcup.pl (translated by me):

Something to Guiness Record Book

This match will become a history of krakowian Salwator Cup. Paula Kania was struggling in match with Yulia Veleeva for 3 hours and 35 minutes. Finally bulgarian tennis player occured better.

Pole in each three sets broke her opponent, but she managed to win only the second one. With sadness she was answering, what she lacked of to win. - I can't finish won matches. It's all in my head. There's a bigger chance to win a match when I'm loosing 1:4 than when I'm leading 4:1 - told Paula Kania.

Above 3 hour and a half clash finished with win of Bulgarian 7:6(4), 4:6, 7:5 - Was it the longest match in my career? I don't know myself - racked her brains Kania.

- I lost also because of not having a traning for two last weeks, but I came to try. I though myself: "maybe I will do it". Unfortunately I didn't - added Paula.

Korzeniak: I'm an optimist

Salwator Cup is a special tournament for Anna Korzeniak. Krakowian, who got WC, will play in her family town. 20-year old tennis players won't recall this season well, so that she is counting on a good performance in Krakow.

- How am I to be satisfied of my worst year in career? - asks Korzeniak
- On winter I had some health problems and I couldn't play as much as I wanted - I'm however an optimist and I think that next year I will play much better.

Salwator Cup is to be the turning-point for Korzeniak, who is already thinking about the next season. What are her aims? - I'd like to finish the next year on 150# rank. But I don't know if I'll manage to.

What are the complete guidelines for receiving a special exempt? I thought it was that if you were in the final of the tournament and on the Q list for a tournament of the same prize money stature or lower the following week, you were given the SE status but Krakow is obviously a much higher tier than Nantes so what gives?

A player competing on the day that the qualifying competition begins in
another “Qualified Tournament” and who applies for and receives exemption
from qualifying as hereinafter provided.

For entered players a “Qualified Tournament” is:
- For $10,000 tournaments: the singles event of any ITF Women’s Circuit

week
- For $25,000 tournaments: the singles event of any ITF Women’s Circuit
tournament with prize money of $25,000 or higher or any WTA Tour

Not really. I haven't seen all matches, but IMO the best match of the day was Stanciute-Pastikova :drool:
Also Ruutel played good tennis, big serve+big fh. Nice baseliner. Anderson played some serve&volleys. Her net play is good, but is not regular from baseline.

The surface is shitty IMO :) They put some mats on the 'real surface'(which is carpet). If you play agressive volley, the ball will hardly bounce after it. There is a funny sound when ball touches the court - like it would touch sth empty inside.

Girls will play Q and 1st round of Doubles here.
Hope MD courts will be much better.

I heard that Rus will play also doubles.
If you have any questions, just ask :)

Salwator Cup: klęska Polek w eliminacjach

Bez zapowiadanych Severine Bremond i Giseli Dulko zacznie się w poniedziałek turniej główny krakowskiego challengera Salwator Cup (pula nagród 100 tys. dolarów + H). Najwyżej rozstawioną zawodniczką będzie Rosjanka Alisa Klejbanowa (33 WTA). W pierwszej rundzie na pewno wystąpią cztery Polki. Sobotniego, premierowego etapu eliminacji nie zdołało przejść aż osiem z dziewięciu naszych zawodniczek. W drugiej rundzie eliminacji spośród Polek wystąpi tylko Sandra Zaniewska.

Argentynka Dulko ostatecznie nie przyjedzie do Krakowa a wyrażała taką chęć już po terminie zgłoszeń do turnieju. W czwartek wycofała się z udziału tutaj Francuzka Bremond. W Krakowie wystąpi więc 10 pań z pierwszej setki światowego rankingu.

W eliminacjach wystąpiło 9 Polek, z czego aż 6 dostało się tam z "dzikimi kartami". Wszystkie tego rodzaju przepustki od organizatorów dostały rodzime zawodniczki. Zaniewska, która jako jedyna z całej dziewiątki pokonała swoją rywalkę, Rumunkę Ivan również zagrała dzięki "dzikiej karcie". Dzisiaj 17-letnia katowiczanka, dla której jest to pierwszy tak duży turniej zmierzy się z najwyżej rozstawioną w eliminacjach Ukrainką Kutuzową.

Ponad 3,5 godziny trwał mecz Pauli Kanii z Bułgarką Weljewą. 16-latka (urodziny w przyszłym tygodniu) z Sosnowca sama przyznała, że nie miała rakiety w ręku przez ostatnie dwa tygodnie. Chciała spróbować swoich sił w Krakowie, dostała "dziką kartę" i przeżyła wielkie rozczarowanie.

Znamy 26 zawodniczek turnieju głównego. W weekendowych eliminacjach zostaną wyłonione kolejne cztery. Poza nimi w drabince turniejowej znajdą się dwie tzw. special exempts, spoza listy startowej. Prawdopodobnie będą to Stefanie Voegele (Szwajcaria, 144 WTA) i Wesna Manasjewa (Rosja, 155 WTA), finalistki turnieju w Nantes.

Gościem w hali Wola Sport Paradise była w sobotę Agnieszka Radwańska, która przygotowuje się do mistrzostw WTA w Doha (będzie tam rezerwową). Popularna Isia rozegrała pokazowy mini-sparing z Anną Korzeniak, inną krakowianką, która dzięki "dzikiej karcie" wystąpi w turnieju głównym. Katarzyna Piter i Olga Brózda to dwie kolejne Polki startujące w pierwszej rundzie krakowskiego challangera dzięki takim specjalnym przepustkom.

W ostatecznym rozstawieniu zawodniczek wśród Polek tylko Urszula Radwańska (134 WTA), na ostatniej pozycji znalazła się w turnieju głównym. "Dzikie karty" organizator przyznał czterem dziewczynom i można powiedzieć, że wszystkie z nich to Polki. Oprócz krakowianki Radwańskiej oraz poznanianek Piter i Brózdy w tym gronie znalazła się Angelique Kerber, urodzona w niemieckiej Bremie córka Beaty i Sławomira, niegdyś czołowego polskiego tenisisty.

Pewnie do drugiej fazy kwalifikacji awansowały faworytki: Białorusinka Pouczek, Słowaczka Wienerova i Bośnianka Jugić-Salkić.
