Alicia Molik as a Spare card? I can live with that :D:bounce:

With Lindsay out and Marie-Gaïane not playing yet it looks like I have to take use of my spare cards for the event in Sydney!!

Just as well MG is back at the AO so only one spare in use then.

Gooo girls!!

Lindsay's withdrawal will make your spare cards very useful. ;)

Per4ever,
the main draw has already been posted; in the qualies there won't be any direct encounter: the best 8 out of all the 27 posters will qualify and will enter the main draw in the spot indicated by the number (#1 of the qualifying round in the Q1 spot, #2 in Q2, and so on). :)

Mary Cherry,
sure, it would be a pleasure to have you among the Tennis Poker players. You just have to sign up in this thread (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5512), and you'll play the qualifications for the second leg. :)

Feel free to ask any question, I'll be glad to answer. :)

Thank you, good luck! :wavey:

When will we see the first results doc?

DoctorG
Jan 9th, 2002, 01:14 AM
Per4ever,
I think I will make an update after the Australian Open, when most of the players will get a value, just to have a first idea of what is happening. But I won't be surprised if the definitive outcome of this tournament is decided by the last ball played in Paris next February. :)

Good luck! :wavey:

Polishprodigy,
thank you, I've updated your choices in the 2nd leg thread. :)

Just a note to remind everyone that team changes and new entrants for the 2nd leg are now allowed in this thread (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5512). Of course those changes will be effective only from February 11th on.
