Sandrine has a qualifier first, and then either Elena L or another qualifier (Elena is in terrible form at the mo, so Im going with the qualifier to upset her).
Her most likely QF opponet will be either 4th seed Jelena or Patty Schnyder. Yep, if she plays her cards right Sandrine can definately make it! Jelena's form is sketchy, but Im not going to count her out of course.
Imnot going to look beyond Jelena (but if I did either Monica or Justine await ...and then Venus ....and then the trophy )
Paris, France (February 4, 2002)- No.6 seed and World No. 12, Sandrine Testud of France withdrew from L'Open Gaz de France held this week in Paris, due to severe pain and inflammation in her neck.
"I'm very disappointed to miss this 10th edition of the Open Gaz de France," said Testud. "I first experienced the pain when I arrived in Australia, but with physiotherapy I felt much better. At the end of the Tokyo tournament, the pain returned and right now it is quite severe, I can't even turn my head. I've just seen my osteopath in Lyon who told me I need to rest.
"I'm sorry for the tournament and for my sponsor, Gaz de France. With intense physio treatment, I hope I'll feel much better by the end of the week."
This would have been Testud's seventh appearance at the Open Gaz de France. She reached the quarterfinals in Sydney and in Tokyo last week
