The exhibition was the saturday and the sunday!

At first, these were the players : Justine, Amélie, Elena D and Arantxa

Then, Amélie withdrew because of her injury, and Elena D told she won't come, so they replaced them by Myskina and Maggie Maleeva!

The friday before the tournament (the day before it starts), Myskina told the organisation she won't come!!

So, they were there with 3 players!!

They phoned to Nathalie Dechy (I guess Justine gave Nat's telephone number)

So, they phoned to her the friday (she was in the south of France to prepare the new season with french fed cup) and she accepted to come, so she took her car and she arrived in Belgium 4 hours before her match against Maggie Maleeva!! She defeated Maggie and Justine on Sunday!!

Congrats Nathalie on such a good girl you are!!

But why did Anastasia withdraw??

Yes, Arantxa played but lost to Justine Henin on Saturday and lost on sunday against Maggie!!

Too bad for Arantxa
