The draw has been made yesterday, but they're just slow publishing it

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:06 PM
Has anybody seen any schedule or know when plays begin?

btw, Don't think the website will publish any quali draw.

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:09 PM
maybe an american could use their iniative and phone? i'll get teh number from wta site and post it here :)

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:13 PM
setpoint i just noticed you are from Arizona, couldn't you call seeing as your in the same state? Would it cost u lots? It'd certainly be alot cheaper than soemone phoning from another part of the country or form abroad.

From wta site:

Peter Tatum
2 Bryant Street, Suite 150
San Francisco, CA 94105
Phone: 415-227-8000 (ext. 124)

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:18 PM
I have called and will continue to call. So far no information, just recorded messages.

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:30 PM
I dont think anyone will answer the phone until Monday. It looks like an office phone number to me :) .

You can try instead the place where the tournament is. I am not certain but I think it is at :

The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
7575 East Princess Drive
Scottsdale, Arizona
United States
Telephone: (480) 585-4848
Fax: (480) 585-0086

Good luck with your search for the draw and order of play :) .

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:32 PM
yes that's what i thought when i saw the number. Also not even teh website gives teh numebr for the tournament office, which is very strange - usually that is something which is always published, along with teh tournament director.

The website has posted today's schedule:

followed by -- Camille PIN (FRA) vs. Sarah TAYLOR (USA)
followed by -- Marissa IRVIN (USA) vs. Greta ARN (GER)
followed by -- Ansley CARGILL (USA) vs. Nannie DE VILLIERS (RSA)

Club Court

Court 5

Obviously the draw is extremely WEAK ! What's going on ? :confused:

And only 11 matches. Does that mean that there are 5 byes ? :rolleyes: At least that would explain why Nancy is there. ;)

Feb 22nd, 2003, 04:30 PM
omg i ahvent heard of some of those players. Afinogenova vs Van horne is a joke, lol. Katia is good, but not good enough to merit r2 of a tier 2 qualies.

Feb 22nd, 2003, 04:32 PM
Thanks everyone for your efforts to get the order of play and the draw :) .

What were the probabilities of having Stéphanie vs. Marion on the first round of qualies :rolleyes: :( .

Feb 22nd, 2003, 05:06 PM
And may I add that the tournament's wildcard policy is a bit surprising to say the least ?

Like last year, Liina Suurvarik :confused: and Alesia Mikalayeva :confused: :confused: have received WC's. Who are they ?
Even more strange is that their matches here last year have been their only pro matches ever so far.
Suurvarik at least gave Jill Craybas a decent match, losing 4-6 2-6.
But Mikalayeva was double-bageled by Stephanie Foretz. How in hell did she get another WC ??? :confused:

Feb 22nd, 2003, 05:12 PM
maybe they are local girsl who play at the club?

Perhaps they came through pre-qualies? Or won the club championships?

Feb 22nd, 2003, 05:24 PM
When I see draws like this, it really makes me mad at American players...this is a perfect example of you never know. I mean Nancy in the qualie draw.

Where is Cory Ann, Tanner, Ally, Kristen, Tiffany, Bielek, etc...This would have been an excellent opportunity to try and get some points and maybe even qualify :fiery:

Feb 22nd, 2003, 05:29 PM
very weak draw indeed...

good luck to:

Camille Pin :)
Ansley Cargill
Aniko Kapros
Marion Bartoli :)
Katia Afinogenova

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.

Feb 22nd, 2003, 06:59 PM
