<font size=3>Taliamanosoko's long season will end in Karlsruhe, Germany<font size=2>

Ruflina Taliamanosoko played 2 events in Australia at the beginning of the year and then took off to have her first child. She did not reapper to the tour until mid-May for the German Open. Since then, she has played non-stop making the quarterfinals or better in most of her events.

She said, from the tournament in Botswana, "I am happy to be playing in Sabine's tournament. It is always so nice and so much fun. I love Germany. It's funny because we are playing each other tomorrow (in Botswana) so we will probably fly together to Karlsruhe Sunday night. This will be my last tournament until Sydney in January. I am almost 8 1/2 months pregnant and I will be going on maternity leave after this tournament."

Ruflina begins play on Monday night in a mixed-dobules match with her husband, Ikumbo Kimjumba against Upanova/Safin.

<font size=5>Graf, Valentine and Dokic announce: Team Champion!</font>

In the world of the Fantasy Womens Tennis Tour, not one practise group can match up to the one which includes Sabine Graf, Selima Valentine and Jelena Dokic.

No players comman attaention like these 3 and today, they announced an exciting new development in their practise group.

Speaking via satellite, Graf, Valentine and Dokic announced their latest plan, Team Champion. A training development program which allows talented juniors to come otgether and join a group.

'We decided to have this because we recognise that there is a lot of talent out there and we need to develop it' said the trio, part of the most rigorous training program on the Tour.

The trio, are unmatched when it comes to work ethic. While other players take part in sexual innuendo (Anjie and Eva <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ), and others are giving birth to a herd of children, these 3 can be found on the practise court drilling away, occasionally joined by other talented players.

'We know we train hard and we think that by getting the younger players to do this, it will make them better' said the three stars.

The group will ask juniors to join Team Champion if they feel that those juniors have the capabilities to become top players.

'We are very excited by this and hope that everyone will help out the younger kids'

<br />TEAM CHAMPION FIRST LIST:

Below is a list of the first players to join team Champion. As more players start to unfold, more will be added to the entourage

- Gisele Noventz (BRA)<br />- Lara Miele (BRA)<br />- Barbara Miele (BRA)<br />- Daniela Dockitch (AUS)<br />- Dominique Keller (GER)<br />- Mia Ling Keller (GER)<br />- Ana Maria Herrera (MEX)<br />- Shizu Katsumi (JPN)<br />- Hong Da Jung (KOR)<br />- Mary Wong (CHN/HKG)<br />- Lindsay Anne Sarile (PHI)<br />- Juzzy Nakajima (JPN)<br />- Paula Masterton (GBR)<br />- Fleur Delacour (FRA)

The group will be looked after by several coaches, trainers and managers.

<font size=5>Sorrenta and de la Courtiere announce a team to rival Team Champion

<font size=2>Anjelica de la Courtiere and Eva Sorrenta announced just this hour that they would create an organization to rival Team Champion.

"Eva and I are considering what Jelena and the Germans are doing, and think that it could be promising," said de la Courtiere. "We plan on starting our own *training* sessions with those that we find to be acceptable to be near the likes of myself and Eva."

Details are scarce at this time, but sources close to the two players are saying that the only requirement for admittance is that you own your own racquets and thongs.

Currently, no members have been invited to join the two, and it looks as though it may be a good while before anyone is considered for membership.

Ruflina:

Don't hate because we prefer to concentrate on tennis instead of opening our legs every 5 minutes.

Bryanne Pierce: "I can tell you honest I think that Ruflina was crazy to play tennis when pregnant because it may cause damage to the baby but I can't help her. It only her to decide what she want to do in her future."
