Canada Drops Opener Against Great Britain

In a section which featured world #1 Larisa Ferrer, Defending Hopman Cup Champion and Munich winner Regla Torres, and 2001 Aus Open finalist Monica de la Cal, Canada's Eva Sorrenta along with Sebastien Lareau started off day 1 action in a losing battle to the top seeded British squad of Ferrer and Moore.

Q: Eva, you started off well, big win over Ferrer and then couldn't keep up the momentum, what happened?

A: Definetly experience played a factor. This is Sebastien's first time playing with myself or at Hopman Cup, while the other teams I think have some more experience so despite beeing seeded I do feel like a bit of an underdog against such a tough field.

Q: What are your expectations here?

A: Just to get some matches in really. I've been known to start the year slow, and it's no secret so I just want to get better preparation for when the tour matches get under way. The singles win was nice, but realistically I know that I didn't play my best tennis, and I think Larisa maybe was not at her very best either. She made a few errors at crucial points, and I was able to take advantage of that.

Q: What's more important to you at this point? Winning the ties, or winning your singles matches?

A: Umm, no preference, Sebastien and I both came in just wanting matches, and in all honesty not really expecting too too much. If we go far that's great, but it's not the end of the world if we faulter a bit here. I care far more about the tour events where it's a matter of points. Here I think I can have a chance to just test my game, go for some things during my matches, more risks, and assess where my level of play is at heading into Melbourne.

Q: What do you hope to happen this season towards the beginning.

A: Win matches! (laughs). Last year was a real dosaster, I didn't get into a good feel of my level until late last year which was unfortunate, and it shows why I am not ranked at number 3 right now. Hopefully I can get into the mix of things early on, and gain some match confidence so that I can gain some points where I have my chances.

Q: Thanks Eva.

JAHFSON DEFEATS SARILE AGAIN

Madonika Diva Jahfson played her first match of the 2002 season when she defeated Lindsay Anne Sarile easily, 7-5 6-3! The two have played quite a few times since they both joined the tour in July. Jahfson has won all meetings routinely.

"I am very excited about the upcoming season and I must say I was on top of my game defeating Sarile. It was an easy victory and I feel great! To tell you the truth I tanked the mixed doubles because I did not feel like playing. I don't give a shit whether Morrocco does good or not...all I care about is how I do in singles. Plus Harry Cock sucks anyway...now isn't that ironic!"
