I'm glad to see Sandrine is playing an American clay event (Charleston) for the first time in three years! It looks like she wants to get some matches on clay before she and Amelie head down to wipe up Argentina in Fed Cup.
I can´t believe Arantxa is not on the commitment list for ANY of the claycourt tourney - even Porto, which she should be defending. Anyone know if she is injured? (She´s still down for Mexico next week, though)
Arantxa often enters late into tournaments, which is what i'm thinking (hoping) she's doing. She's played in Charleston/Hilton Head every single year of her career and Amelia Island I believe as well every year except for a couple years where she was injures so I think she'll be there. She probably won't play Porto this year and Acapulco was probably a substitute for it.
Alex Stevenson is entered in EVERY tournament. She's been playing very well lately. I think her ranking must be in the 30s now. Looks like she's in the semis in Memphis. Good for her. She has a lot of talent and, if her mother keeps calm, maybe Alex can really do well this year and maybe make the top 10. It would be hard but not impossible.
