<font color=sapphire><font size=5>2001 Generali Ladies Linz Open<font=size><font=color><font color=black><font=color><font size=2><font=size>

<br /></center><br />The ETA Tour makes its last Tier II stop in the beautiful city of Linz, Austria. The $565,000 event marks the last tournament for players to accumulate points for the season ending Sanex Championships in Munich, Germany. Defending champion, Lindsay Davenport is noticeably absent from the draw, but defending finalist Venus Williams is in the draw and looks to be one of the prime contenders for the indoor title. Venus will look to capture the event that snapped her amazing 35 match win streak.<br /><center><br />
<br /></center><br />There are no Austrians in the singles or doubles draw with the changing of nationality of Barbara Schett. It remains in question how the crowd will react to the former No. 1 Austrian. Schett though has experienced a revival in just a few short weeks, reaching back to back quarterfinals but lost in the first round of last week's event.<br /><center><br />
<br /></center><br />The four wildcards were awarded to Pam Shriver, Meilen Tu, Su-Wei Hsieh, and Nadia Petrova. The first three wildcards have all reached at least the semifinals or better in their respective tournaments last week. In fact all three made their first ETA semifinals last week. Hsieh and Tu have proven to be a force to be reckoned with. Both players made their debuts last week and are both on track to become the second and third players to win their debut event. Another new face on the tour is Croatia's Iva Majoli who received a wildcard into qualifications.<br /><center><br />

<center><font color=ruby><font size=5>2001 Seat Open Luxembourg<font=size><font=color><font color=black><font=color><font size=2><font=size>

<br /></center><br />This week, the small country of Luxembourg plays host to the Tier III Seat Open Luxembourg on a carpet indoor surface. The $170,000 event is the last event for players to secure position in the top 16 for the elite Sanex Championships next week. Both the defending champion, Jennifer Capriait and defending finalist, Magdalena Maleeva are not entered in the event. Though 1999 Champion Kim Clijsters returns to the tournament which earned she earned her first Sanex WTA title. <br /><center><br />


<br /></center><br />Other players looking to compete for the indoor title include World No. 3 Justine Henin and World No. 5 Mary Pierce. The top four seeds are Henin, Pierce, Monica Seles, and Petra Mandula. Seles and Mandula will look to clinch spots in the Sanex Championships with a good showing here in the picturesque city of Luxembourg.<br /><center><br />

Let's go Babsi!<br />The Austrian motherf*ckers will miss you! They didn't give you what you deserve! LOL!!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

By the way, ALL ETA PLAYERS PAY ATTENTION:<br />I've introduced a new game to this board! It is called WMTA - World Male Tennis Association. It has many similarities with the ETA game, but its focus is on the ATP Players. It is very well organised and I hope all you guys sign up there and have some great fun! Thanks!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Mixed doubles draw will be posted later on today.

<font color="orange">Please send all points for mixed doubles to [email protected] . You MUST do this or else your opponent will receive a walkover. I can not access your points for singles as I am a singles player myself and that wouldn't be fair at all.</font>

So send your points.

All Mixed Doubles Points due by 3:00 Boardtime Monday!

I have switched Zvereva with Bovina, so that Natasha will play at Seat Open Luxembourg. While Bovina earned a "wildcard" into the Generali Ladies Linz Open.
