You better go everyday and give us reports and pics :p

By the way, WC's went to Kátia Rodrigues, Maria João Koehler and Suzana dos Anjos. I wonder who'll get the fourth one. I'm hoping it's Bárbara Luz, she turns 14 at the start of this tournament :D

I was tired of posting in the Portuguese thread in the Rest of World, where almost nobody goes there ;)

Watch Rita Freitas if possible. She's one of the most talented portuguese players. I wonder how she's playing in her comeback.

Last year, this tournament was played on October, if I remember well. At the time, I was more free to go there and spend some hours almost every day...Next week it won't be so easy, I might try to go at the end of the morning (lunch time) and at the end of the day.

About Rita Freitas, I will check!
