I've heard all of NOTHING. I expect we'll hear something soon, as they'll start talking Fed Cup shortly.

Thanks Sonja - I'm sure it won't be long. I saw your Lina play doubles today against V&S she's quite the player - very good serve!

Haven't heard any news except someone on the official site met Loic at a tournament somewhere in France. They asked him about Amélie and he just said she's in the south (of France) at the moment.
