Messay Arrives is Casablanca<br />Junior tennis player, Leslie Ann Messay has arrived in Casablanca for the Grade A tournament. Messay, who has had down results since winning the Bejing Cup, is looking for at least one win and a confidence booster. "I may be injured (her foot), but that's no excuse for playing as poorly as I have." Messay will team up with Meghann Adeva in doubles. They are the top team.

<font size=5>Barbara Miele wins and fight with the judge line</font>

Casablanca - The younger of Mieles sisters won Catherine Pierce yesterday, in straight sets, both in tie break. Barbara Miele who came having bad results, including a terrible loss to Kournikova Elia last week in Yucatan. "She is a tough competitor. But unfortunely wasn't my moment again against her last week. I hope I can win her someday."

But now Barbara is only happiness and in same time anger. She won Catherine Pierce in two tough sets, and had a terrible discussion with the judge line. "You should use glasses before umpire this match!" said Barbara to the umpire who marked ball out during the first tie break, which Barbara won 10-8. Then Barbara went to the umpire of the match to change that judge line. But the umpire didn't. <br />Miele threw her racket on the court, and was booed by the crowd.<br />"She didn't knew how to umpire. I don't know why she was there umpiring! My little cousin would do better than her." said Barbara after asked of her fight with the umpire.

Barbara now faces the winner of Daniela Turundhzov from Australia and Diana Mahler, from Germany. And with Lara Miele in doubles are the third seed.

<br />Barbara Miele reacts the crowd's hootings during her match against Catherine Pierce.

Tired Turundzhov advances after disappointing end to Yucatan Cup!

Australian junior Daniela Turundzhov has managed to fight her way through to the 2nd rnd of the Grade 1 junior event in Mexico today, with a 3 set win over Germany's Diana mahler.

After losing the final of the Yucatan Cup in 2 tight sets to Natalya Dholpocova, Turundzhov left straight for the Casablanca, just managing to make her match.

Here is an interview with Turundzhov:

Q: Daniela, a really good fighting win out there, still disappointed after losing the Yucatan Cup final?

A: Yeah, well, it was a tough loss and I was a little disappointed but I knew I had to get it together quick because Diana's just such a good player. You can't play her without being fully concentrated so I just put the loss behind me straight away and just did what I had to do.

Q: When did you find out you had to play today?

A: Well, with Team Champion, we have a group of 20 split into 4. So there were 5 of us in a group, Barbara (Miele), Lara (Miele), Ana Maria (Herrera) and Catherine (Pierce). They had already left and we have 2 coaches, trainers and managers. So 1 coach, trainer and manager stayed back with me, for the final. Oleksandr (Klemesch), our coach was with me and he knew yesterday but he didn't tell me anything because he didn't want to take my mind off the final. Once I finished, he said, Daniela, you must hurry, you are playing Mahler and 6pm, and I was like Oh no, not again! (laughs)

Q: You won your matches, but Natalya lost hers, what do you think is the difference between you two?

A: I think she was really happy she won the Yucatan and I don't think she was prepared mentally for Elena, who's a really good player.

Q: You're in the top 10 now, are you satisifed with the way you're playing?

A: Yeah for sure but I want to aim for top 5 at the end of the year, that's my aim. I think I can do it (laughs). We'll see how it goes.

<br />Thanks Daniela

Thanks (yay, I can get some rest!)



Daniela Turundzhov thumps a forehand in her 7-5 3-6 6-4 win over Diana Mahler.

Dlhopolcova Ousted By Dokic

Interview with Natalya Dlhopolcova

Q: Natalya, a bit of a let down for you today after winning singles and doubles earlier, what went wrong out there?

A: Well, a combination of things. I mean, obviously I was really drained having been playing non-stop in both events last week, so that was tough, and I think not having much experience I just didn't focus too well today. I've just been so happy to win such a big event that I probably didn't prepare myself well enough.

Q: Did you expect a tough match from Dokic?

A: Oh definetly. I really don't see this as a bad loss, Elena is ranked higher, and she's been lurking around the top 10 for some time, so it was a bit unfortunate to face her in round 1. It just shows how deep the field is at this level.

Q: A good learning experience for you?

A: Yeah, like I said before I really haven't had too much expectations yet, not until 2002 starts. I came in fully knowing that there was the potential I'd have my rough patches, or tough losses, so it's not a huge shock for me. You just take the positive from it and move on. I'm happy there has been some good experiences too, and hopefully I can take this match as a reference to future experiences similar to it.

Q: Thanks Natalya.

<font size=5>Barbara shows hard feelings for tragedy involving Conde sisters</font>

Casablanca - Even after Marta Maria's death in a car accident, Miele don't respect the young spaniard.

"I'm sure we won't miss them. They did nothing!" said Barbara to the press. "Life is hard. You have to learn in live with this. And she was a bad person." Miele expressed her true feelings about Conde sister's death.

This discussion began in Orange Bowl, when Barbara said that Marta Maria wasn't a player in her level, and Marta Maria started to answer Barbara's aggressive comments. Then, since there, both players didn't had any kind of communications, even on trainnings or even in their matches. They left the court without shake their hands.

"I feel sorry for their parents for being enduring them these years..." Miele said about Conde's education.<br /> <br />After two weeks Barbara or Marta Maria didn't mentioned each names in their interviews, seems like now Barbara will be marked for this for the rest of her life. "I don't care how people will react. Or even the players. I gave my opinion as you guys asked!" said Miele who was booed yesterday, and said she doesn't care if she becomes the target of the hootings in her next match against Daniela Turundhzov.

Katarina Kriventcheva-Molik will have to withdraw from doubles due to Marta Maria's death. Molik asks the organizers of the FWTT tour to exclude this results from her ranking, due to special circumstances. Also, Molik is officially looking for a new doubles partner. She is a former no.1 in junior doubles, and is currently ranked no.2. She won her first tournament too.

Mary Wong is happy with her win, before the match, they have a minute silence for Conde Martinez death, Mary stress that it is important that the tour should carry on as normal. She also denied all rumours about pairing with Mutula next year in doubles but said that since she and Turundzhov will have to talk about their future since they did nit do well recently

<font size=5>Barbara Miele loses under hootings to Turundhzov</font>

Casablanca - The match began with a minute of silence in Marta Maria Conde Martinez's honor, which Barbara didn't respected and went to her bench and take her racket, and continue waiting sitted at her bench looking for the sky, and when the cerimony ended the crowd also didn't respected Barbara Miele, that when standed up to warming up against Daniela Turundhzov, the crowd all started the booos above the young brazilian.

And it became more stronger when Barbara began serving. She stopped and went to the judge to ask for silence, and this made the crowd gets more angry, and gets more hard with the provocations. "I'll never play this tournament more!! It such a bunch of uneducated people!" said mad Barbara Miele. Even with the crowd's affort, Barbara made the talented Australian Daniela Turundhzov work. As she lost the first set 6-2, and won the second 6-3, with an ace that made two person spits in Miele while she rested in her bench in the break of the set to another.

Miele went to umpire, who made the person to leave the court. Than the third set began, Miele looked impressive, and seemed like she was ready to make her party at the court, but she was facing a focused and tough opponent, that tied everything at 5-5. Miele still had the chance to serve to win the match, but Turundhzov made 6-5.

In this game Miele couldn't handle the crowd's pressure, and started to fell on tears. And made 2 double faults. "I was crying of anger, not cause I was regreting." Miele said after the match. Miele's serve entered at the 0-30, Turundhzov didn't take control on her return, and float. Miele went the net to make the smash, someone in the crowd screamed, and Miele made a wrong smash which looked easy for a player in her level. Than Miele blew out, and screamed "Could you please shut the f**k up!!!!?????" Turundhzov reacted with the point and three match points. Miele's first serve went so weak, that Daniela Turundhzov returned making a winner, closing then a tense and nervous match in the central court.

The excited Australian kept her streak defeating the eighth seed, and went to the net to shake her hands at Miele. "Daniela and I are great friends. The people got mad at me just cause I didn't liked Marta Maria. I am obligated? I don't think so" Miele reacted after one of the questions. "I wish that Marta Maria is resting in hell with her friend soul! I dedicate this loss and all my previous loss to her!"

Lara advanced in the tournament, as the Mieles in doubles didn't play, and will be in action tomorrow. About now the crowd's provocation affect their preformance in doubles Barbara isn't so worry. "I want this people to f**k themself and leave me alone!!"
