Hehe, im from sweden, but i dont know anything about swedish players at the WTa tour :)

Why do you want to know more about them?

Grachka Oct 4th, 2003 04:38 PM

I got to see Arvidsson and Nooni in a couple of tournaments, including in Glasgow last week. Entertaining play, and of course Svensson (nee Carlsson)...

Alek Oct 4th, 2003 10:37 PM

obatafan how come we are not friends ;)

Grachka Oct 5th, 2003 11:06 AM

Who says we can't be!? ;) I am and will continue to be a great fan of Asa...and the other lovely Swedes of course :)

HantuchovaSweFan Oct 6th, 2003 10:58 PM

hehe :D They have more fans in this thread than in whole Sweden :)

bracey Oct 6th, 2003 11:14 PM

Four of us :lol:

I think the women get over-shadowed by good male Swedes like Borg and Bjorkman.

Bracey, they are no really good swedish tennis woman out a top 10 hehe.

bracey Oct 7th, 2003 12:45 PM

Same in Britain, I guess.

Grachka Oct 7th, 2003 02:58 PM

Definately. Although I do think that the likes of Hanna and Sofia are very good, I don't ever see the them dominating the tennis world. Same with our players...

Alek Oct 9th, 2003 11:12 AM

Asa Svensson is top 100, she is simply injured, thanks.

When are you back Asa :sad:

King Aaron Oct 9th, 2003 06:21 PM

I think Asa is Top 50 not 100. ;)

Alek Oct 12th, 2003 05:21 PM

So Sofia lost the $25K Jersey final to Sybille Bammer 76 62

Another dissapointing result...

Hanna Nooni lost to Sofia in semis
Maria Wolfbrandt lost in r1 of Cd. Juarez $50K
Aleksandra Srndovic lost in qf of $10K Bari

Helena Ejeson was qualifier in Jersey and lost in r1
