Re: Arantxa Rus
Arantxa in Saint-Gaudens
Rus vs de Gubernatis (FRA, WC, 226)
Qualifier vs Beltrame (FRA, WC, 222)
Svitolina (UKR, JE, 459) vs Feuerstein (FRA, WC, 235)
Bremond (FRA, 137) vs Hampton (USA, 125)
certainly a step down - fairly easy first couple of matches, even though French wildcards are no pushovers. Aran beat de Gubernatis 62 61 in Stockholm in February, but that was a difference surface. Possibly good for confidence anyway.
Also, in Brussel Q (21st) as priority 1.
i defeated the mountains
i severed the oceans
i was the stronger of us
yet the weakest one still
