Martinez lost &-6 6-3 to Kristina Brandi in New Zealand. Obviously not a good start to 2002, but this could be REALLY bad because usually Conchi's year follows her early Aussie circuit results. She needs a real bounce back quickly

I wonder how the Tunisian public reacts to Selima.<br />I understand Tunisia is a moderate Islamic state, but does she get death threats from fundamentalists like that female runner from Algeria used to? I just hope she's appreciated in her homeland!
You can blame my mum's friend. She was staying in the same Auckland Hotel as Conchita. It was breakfast time and she was approaching the buffet when this woman tried to barge in front of her. My mum's friend nudged her out of the way kind of elbowing her in the side to stop her pushing in and then looked up and realised she had pushed aside Conchita Martinez hehehe. So i dunno, maybe Conchita was bruised, hence why she lost.
(sob, acting devastated)....Poor me? LOL! Poor Conchita. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> Well, I can't get upset about it. If I got upset every time she lost I'd be in the nuthouse for the terminally depressed. She hasn't played in months, so I didn't expect great things.
If there's one thing I know about this crazy tennis system, it's one thing......Conchita will rise again! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Of course, Celeste. As always, you take your chin up to new heights, one advantage of Conhita's losing. We call it resilience, where I come from. We'll have to do something bout poor Conchita, though. Tell you what, lets get together some nights to exchange ideas..... assuming of course, you've kicked Randy out!
damn. <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />now she won't get a seed at Oz unless 3 people ahead of her withdraw.<br />Hope she gets a good draw.<br />anybody know when she's playing next?
