AND, in the Qualies, Anastasia <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> (playing HERE, instead of Brtislava! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">) and Tatiana <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> are both seeded and I think they both have an excellent chance to make the main draw.

i'm really happy lina got the wild card, good luck 2 lina in the main draw

Lina was always a big possibility as she's managed by Octagon.

But i wanted her to play qualies to give her some much needed matches , then she is more dangerous.
Hopefully she avoids a seed in rd 1.

Nadia ...... suprised she got a WC .... very suprised.
Anastasia ????? she was way down on entry.... too far to be considered when entries were submitted. But glad she's here <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

What does Octagon have to do with it? I thought IMG controlled women's tennis. Except for the Ladies Kremlin Cup, of course.

Octagon Group own some events as well , not everything is run by IMG

Moscow , Tokyo Princess Cup . Zurich are 3 of Octagon's tournaments.

Octagon group has a great list of athletes now as well and its getting bigger.

The new tournament in Antwerp will also be run by Octagon. I hope that will mean Lina will come to Belgium! That would be awesome!

When is Antwerp gonna be held ????

i heard it was around Feb.

Lina will have 5 WTA events + AUS Open until end of April.

One before AUS OPEN
Indian Wells
and two more ( last yr Doha/Dubai)

Yes, Antwerp starts February the 8th. So that would be around the same time as Doha and Dubai.
