Hong Kong to revisit past nightmare

One year ago, in exactly the same stage. Hong Kong top star Jane Wong was outhumbled by Ana Maria Herrera and Zerene Fernandez. This week, her and her sister Mary will attempt to reverse this fortune from last year.

'It was tough last year, we expected to win, but then we play on our wort surface grass.'

'This year, to have Mary back into the team is awesome, I hope we can do well.'

'Of course we will have home advantage, and we are playing on clay which is always awesome..' Having said that Jane Wong said that it will not be easy.

'It won't be easy, they know I love clay and they will be employing a lot of tactics to outsmart me.'

'Zerene is now coach by Angelica who beat me in French Open, so we will have to see, I just hope the crowd will pull Mary and I out with a victory and a place in world group next year.'

And they sure will since Hong Kong Colliseum 12,000 capacity for all 3 days has already sold out in the first 2 hours of purchase

I chose clay because it's Germany's worst surface and Brenda and Anne-Laure are doing pretty good on it. I sucked on it. I suck on everything right now. I'd rather give the opportunity to someone that has had sucess then me just because I'm ranked higher!

not to be rude but you haven't even bothered to send points for a few weeks now..its not exactly safe to put you in a match when nobody knows if you're going to show up

Great Britain Announce Surface

British co-captains Paula Masterton and Monica gambill today announced that the venue for their World Group Play-off tie against Sweden was decided by a coin toss. We were sitting in Monica's living room in her rented house for Wimbledon and we came up with this idea: Murrayfield or the Millenium Stadium. I'm Scottish, she's Welsh adn we thought it'd be fun to hold it in the national rugby stadium which holds like 60,000 people. We tossed for it, and Cardiff came out on tops.

This means we will be playing our event on grass. It was a tough choice, as i prefer grass and hate clay, and Monica is the other way around. And to make it even worse we have been performing better on teh other surface. But we felt it gives us a good chance to do well, and stay in the world group.

Obviously it's tough playing Lucia, who i play doubles with, and i mentored Tati for a week with success in a Wimbledon tune-up, but i am firecly proud to play for Britain. And winning is my only mission."

The Swedish team will be no walkover, Kurkova the worlds best doubles player and top 10 singles player, and Ctvrtnickova, one of the best juniors in the world, are on paper the favourites. But backed by the 'Tartan Army' and a strong Welsh contingent, as well as thousands of English tennis fans, will be cheering on for a home succes.
