<font size=5>Barbara Miele lose to Sara Archambault</font>

Barbara Miele didn't find her good form to face the newcomer Sara Archambault from Canada. After making a good tournament in Coffee Bowl, losing to Natalya Dhopolcova, who was defeated by Barbara's sister, Lara, Barbara made a tremendous first set, but lost completely the concentration, caused by the Latin American's crowd.

After the incident in Casablanca, in Mexico, when Miele insulted the crowd, and fought with the umpire, the Venezuelan crowd didn't respect Miele, and was cheering for Archambault, and booing the Latin-American player. "I feel ashamed of this people. How can they have any respect?" Miele ressault.

"I would skip this tournament, cause there is a lot of people that I can't stand. Natalya who thinks she is the queen. But for me she is a nobody. Katerina, who always cries remembering Marta Maria in her interviews. She should be trying to find time for praticing her tennis instead of giving attention in someone who already died, and was incredibly stupid." disclosed Barbara Miele for the media.

The Miele sisters are still on doubles tournament, they seemed to found their best form again, after winning 3 tournament consecutively, the sisters had bad moments, and now after reaching the final of Coffee Bowl, the sisters are favourite again to win this Venezuelan Championships.

Mutola defeats Gonzalez

I am very happy to finally win a singles match. I know remember what it is like to win again on the singles court (laughter). I play my good friend Catherine next, so I hope we both play well. :)

comments from Natalya Dlhopolcova

"I am disappointed to lose to Lara as I have beaten her before in the past, but she played well today, and I was unable to play as well as I did last week at the Coffee Bowl. I wish her good luck for the rest of the tournament.

As for Barbara, it is obvious she is jealous that I beat her her last week, and have already passed her in the rankings. When she learns to win a match over anybody, maybe I will worry about what she says. In the meantime, she may as well keep bowing down to "the Queen" as she likes to call me, cause she sure as heck isn't proving she's any better!"

Barbara answer Natalya :

"Jealous?? Of a girl like her? *laughing* I should be happy, cause I'm not like her! I'm not worry about the rankings, I'm worry in my tennis, and the tournaments and who I play! Not in snobbish girls like her, trying to make the others learn a lesson with them!
Natalya will end like Marta Maria.... Snobbish girls usually has this destiny marked... Just alerting Natalya from the worse *laughing*"

Natalya's response to Barbara:

"*laughter* this child thinks she can threaten me with death remarks?? She's got another thing coming at her if the think she will intimidate me with that! Barbara claims to be focusing on her tennis, but if she was, she would be winning matches more often! Obviously she is not focusing too much because her ranking is getting worse, just like her tennis. She is the snob who has no sorrow for the passing of the Conde sisters!"

A few quotes from Fleur Delacour

When asked about playing on clay again (her favourite surface):

"I'm so happy to be playing on clay again, you know the last time I played on clay was in the semi-finals of Roland Garros, so it certainly brings back memories. I'm also having a great time here in Venuzuela."

When asked about reaching the semis of the Venezuelan Championships and her form:

"I'm happy with my current form, I was struggling just before this tournament, so I guess I am peaking at the right time with the Australian Open coming up. I've won 2 straight 3 set matches, so I'm fighting well and I'm pretty fit."

When asked about Caroline Spencer, her opponent in the semis:

"You know I rejoined the juniors tour just a few months ago, and there are so many girls right now, I have no idea who 90% of them are, and obviously I'm playing many of them for the first time. So hopefully I could figure out her game. I'm confident."
