<font size=5>2001 FWTA Tier I Ladies Carlsberg International!</font>

The tour is buzzing as players begin their last week of tournament play before the CHAMPIONSHIPS at Wimbledon.

This week they travel to Great Britain in order to prepare for WIMBLEDON and the Tier I Ladies Carlsberg International.

Featuring finely manicured grasscourts, the event is a perfect lead in for the players looking to get some play before their toughest event of the year.

Howevere, the weather has not been all that good lately, forcing the organisers to move the grass surface indoors, making for a unique experience.

Same points for Majoli! Divide my bonus points among the last two sets (if I have an odd # of bonus pts., put the larger amt. on the 2nd set).
