GoSandrine Thanks CJ.

Too bad about the loss but encouraging news about her shoulder. She seems in good spirits and ready to put the work in so that's something to hold our hat on.

CJ1 Rita lost 1-6 4-6 but afterwards she said:

"I come from hard court of french team championship, where I lost in final; I restart to train on clay only yesterday and today at the beginning I can't litterally find the ball... The pain at the elbow seems definitevely gone away: now I continue to train on the clay to prepare next indoor events".

So the good news is she does appear to want to try and rebuild her career

GoSandrine Great news!

Maybe playing in a few challengers will allow Rita to gain confidence and pick up some points in the process.

I fear she won't have any wild cards for next year's Slams though.

Task Good luck Rita

Hope you stick around a while longer.

CJ1 Great news, there still is hope. She needs to win some matches for confidence and belief and then maybe she will continue in 2006. I feel if she was going to retire at the end of 2005 then there's no point in her playing in a Challenger, therefore I think she really wants to try and come back.

A Biella tutto pronto per il 50.000 $ internazionale
Tra le italiane ci sarà anche Rita Grande (19/09/2005)

Ultimi dettagli organizzativi per la grande kermesse di tennis internazionale al femminile che si appresta a vivere il CT Biella. In programma, infatti, a partire dal prossimo sabato con il tabellone di qualificazione, il 50.000 $ ITF femminile, sesta edizione Trofeo Banca Sella. Le prime due teste di serie del main draw saranno l'iberica Laura Pous-Tio (numero 76 nel ranking internazionale) e vincitrice in luglio di un'analoga competizione al Country Club Cuneo e la francese Emilie Loit (numero 82). Altre sicure protagoniste sono la slovacca Ludmila Cervanova (128), l'austriaca Yvonne Meusburger (132), la valdostana Nathalie Vierin (141), l'olandese Elise Tamaela (145), la spagnola Conchita Martinez-Granados (146), l'argentina Natalia Gussoni (148) e l'estone Kaia Kanepi (152). "Sono molto contento che il nostro torneo possa ormai considerarsi un classico del tennis italiano e di prima grandezza tra quelli organizzati in Piemonte - commenta il presidente del Tennis Biella Alberto Avonto -. Per il circolo che ho l'onore di presiedere, rappresenta un grande onore aver visto transitare sui nostri campi così tante campionesse".
Le wild card per il tabellone principale saranno assegnate alle giocatrici italiane Rita Grande, Karin Knapp e Verdiana Verardi.

DoctorG Rita will play in the Biella 50k next week, she has asked and received a main draw wild card.

I'll be there, I'd be so happy if I can see Rita once more.
