Mary Wong ready to play

Mary Wong is in a hord of troubles recently, pulling out of events including her own exhibition, she said she is very upset about the whole thing, and she hope everything will put into place soon. She is honoured to be listed in the team of champions and she is happy about that. She do not want to comment about the recent scandal, she said as a junior she should really shut her mouth, she also said that last week exhibition is fun and playing against so many good players and get to beat all in doubles is just amazing.

shizu katsumi hoping for dramatic form reversal

world number one shizu katsumi is currently playing like a world number 100. she hasn't won a match for many weeks and her losing streak is roughly 10 matches.

She comes to the eddie herr championships with the knowledge that another early loss here and she can kiss her number one rank goodbye!

reports say she has put on 19 kilograms since her last victory which is the reason why she has lost all her matches since. In the last 2 weeks she has lost 11 of those kilos in the hope of being able to run around the court as those extra kilos affected her court speed and her stamina!

She has since accepted the invitation to join the training group "team champion."

With good friend Anna Kournikova-Elia by her side, expect shizu to come good soon, and show the tennis world why she is number one!

Daniela is very happy with her form and the doubles with Mary Wong:

'I'm starting to play well now and it's really good for me. I can't wait to play in the main draw where I should be. Me and Mary played fantastic! To beat them in a double bagel is amazing! Let's go Mary!

omg lol and very embaressed at the same time @ the score in doubles!

shizu apologizes to her friend anna! she was disastrous, and only hit 6 balls in the whole time! she is supposed to be improvng but the slide is obviously continuing! <img src="redface.gif" border="0"> <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

rumour has it that shizu is considering retirement! shizu immediately squashed those rumours in a press conference held today!

"i refuse to leave on a low!" she says "maybe i am a doubles klutz so this is why i am asking anna if she still wants to be my partner... she is such a good player and i feel like i am letting her down by me playing the way i am! i am giving her the opportunity to leave me in doubles and find a partner she can win with because i feel like i am preventing her from winning many doubles titles and even singles titles by me and her training together!~!"

anna kournikova-elia is expceted to reply in the near future!

Centre Court:

Barbara Miele bt (4)Mary Wong 64 16 63

(1)Shizu Katsumi bt Caroline Spencer 36 75 64

Anne Gambill bt Q-Delacour 62 26 76(12)

Miele survived a second set blip to upset Wong in 3 after a fierce contest.

Katsumi came through a close one against Venezuela's Spencer. Katsumi gets her first win for weeks in shaky style.

Gambill caused another upset defeating returning star Delacour in a mammoth tie break which saw some wonderful tennis on bth sides of the net.

Court One:

Anabel Conde-Martinez bt Linzi Paterson 06 64 63

Q-Adeva bt (2)Lara Miele 61 06 76(4)

Katerina Molik bt (3)Elena Dokic 76(6) 67(16) 76(6)

Paterson suffered her first ever 1st round defeat afteran amzong 1st set which lasted under 15minutes. From then Conde-Martinez used her speed and power to devastate the little Scot.

Qualifier Meghann Adeva secured her firts tour win in style over 2nd seed Lara Miele. Miele's hopes of taking the number 1 spot in singles were crushed in an even match which ended in a nervous tie-break. Adeva taking it on her 2nd match point.

The upsets cotinued as polish player Molik won a thrilling encounter against 3rd seed Elena Dokic of Spain. Not a single break of serve occured in the whole match, indeed only 3 mini-breaks took place as well! 56 Aces were hit in total by the two players as Molik sneaked through 76(6) in the third.

Court 2:

Ana-Maria Herrera bt Q-Van Krumpt 62 16 76(2)

Q-Dokitch bt Q-Fernandez 63 26 76(3)

Herrera bt young qualifier Van Krumpt in a match that would have been closer than Ana-Maria would ahve liked. The feisty American making her debut went for all her shots and showed her capability in the 2nd set. However, Herrera's experience payed in teh final set tie-break.

The battle of teh qualifiers out on court 2 took a simialr turn of events. With themore experienced player coming out on top in teh 3rd set. Fernandez was not outclassed however, and had chances to take the match when leading 5-4 30-0 on Dokitch's serve. Dokitch will now face top seed Katsumi on centre court tomorrow.

Mary Wong wept after losing streak continue

Mary Wong cried helplessly as she was handed another defeat, after to lost the match, she slumps into her coach shoulders for minutes. She has to be comforted and lead off the court by her coach. Here is what she has to say.

'I really don't know what happen to my game, ever since I won my first title, it is all going wrong. Hopefully it will get better'

<font size=4>Fernandez goes nutz<br /><font size=2>AP

<font size=2>After losing to Daniela Dokitch Wednesday at the Eddie Herr Championships, Fernandez was visibly distressed.

At the close of the match, Fernandez threw down her racquet and stormed off the court in disgust. Later, screams were heard in the locker room and tournament officials stormed in to find Fernandez beating the hell out of Dokitch's locker and equipment.

"Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god... not to that bitch! Not to her! Oh my god, oh my god..." was all that Fernandez would say. They immediately took her to the hospital were she was put on tranquilizers.

While Fernandez has been said to be thought "nuts" as the doctor told reporters... it seems she will be able to play in the doubles tournament.

Daniela Dokitch could not be reached for comment.
