Good win for Annabel!!! I don't know too much about Nathalia but she does well in the Challengers etc. is she a good player, Eggy!!!
Jan 24th, 2002, 01:15 AM
Natalia is only a part-time player as she is now 35.
She was in top 100 around 87/88
Jan 24th, 2002, 01:15 AM
Elsa lost, such a heartbreaker...I think Heli beat her in one of the Israeli challenger finals during the offseason too :(
Anna and Hannah out too :(
well done Leslie :)
Jan 24th, 2002, 02:07 AM
Thanx Eggy the fountain of all knowledge!!!!!!lol
Gee I wasn't aware she was 35, but she does well in these challenger events!!!

Jane,Annabel and Christelle!
Anne:eek:What the hell happened this tourney should have been a walk in the park for you!
Jan 24th, 2002, 04:51 AM
Well done Suzanne and Leslie! Poor Elsa and Tessy!
Jan 24th, 2002, 05:20 AM
Thanks for the results TBE :) .
So all the Chinese players are in for the 2nd round, after some tight results in most cases.
Jan 24th, 2002, 05:31 AM
Good wins for all Chinese girls. :)
I knew 17 year old Yan Zi would be able to upset the 3rd seed. This is her first tourney outside Asia and only her 2nd overseas.
Jan 24th, 2002, 07:19 AM
Congrats Patty and Leslie! :)
Jan 24th, 2002, 08:04 PM
Anne and Hannah :sad: :sad:
Wasn't expecting too much from Hannah, she's always been overrated, but frankly I hope Anne's coach gives her a good bollocking. There's no way she should be losing like this, and I don't know where her head's been for the last few months.
Jan 24th, 2002, 08:48 PM
Well done Leslie & Patty :bounce:
Good luck in the 2nd round!
Jan 25th, 2002, 02:00 AM

Congrats to Nan-Nan, Zi and Jie. :)
Disappointed with Tian-Tian though, she had a chance to make the semis. :mad:
Jie and Zi have to face each other now. :(
I expect a very tough match like in Guangzhou last year.
Jan 25th, 2002, 06:26 AM
Congrats Patty! :)
Jan 25th, 2002, 07:54 AM
Smooth victory from Nan Nan, as in the first round.
The tournament is starting now for her with this coming match against Christelle Grier (GBR - #380 - 8th seed). Looking forward to seeing how Nan Nan will react against a player of this level, playing at home. All the best to her :) .
Good matches from Zi and Jie. As you mentionned, a pity they have to face each other.
Too bad for Tian Tian, but she will have an opportunity to redeem herself this Friday in doubles (playing at 14:00).
The 3 remaining Chinese will be playing their next match this Friday at 09:00 (first matches) and they will also be playing their doubles matches as from 14:00.
Hoping they won't be too tired.
