Interview with Anjelica de la Courtiere

Anjelica de la Courtiere arrived in Guadalajara on Thursday to prepare for Mexico's Fed Cup tie against the United States. We caught up with her after she had a short hit with Mexican junior Jessica Rivera.

Q: How does it feel to be back on Mexico's Fed Cup team?
ADLC: Oh, it's great. This is one of my favorite events to play, for sure. Especially when I'm home here in Mexico. The crowd is so gracious and supportive. They've treated me like I've always been here, like I'm their own flesh and blood. It's a wonderful atmosphere.

Q: How do you feel about Mexico's chances versus the seeded United States?
ADLC: I actually feel we're the favorites with the way the teams are and with the tie being here at home on clay. Regla is obviously a great player, and I feel that we have an enormous opportunity here. I even believe that I've had wins over both the U.S. players since my comeback, so I'm very optimistic that we can win this tie.

Q: What about the rumors that you've split with husband Karol Beck and are once again dating Eva Sorrenta of Canada?
ADLC: That's true. Eva and I are once again partners - off the court. We're having a good time together, and I think it's very good for us. I've always felt like we belonged together, and I think it's going to be good for us to be together while not playing doubles together. The good times in our doubles partnerships were great for our relationship... but when things didn't go so well, it really hurt us personally.

Q: What's your goal for your comeback?
ADLC: It's less than what I had hoped for initially... I've seen that it's not going to be very easy to make it back to the top. Right now I'm just hoping to get back to the top 30.... maybe top 20 in doubles. I'd like to win a tournament this year, but I'm not sure if that will be possible. Mainly I just want to have fun and do as well as possible. I'd certainly like to have a good result at the French Open, as well.

Q: Thanks, Anjelica.
ADLC: Thank you.

Of course. :drool: Too bad we don't play as well as we look.

Looks like Team Spain think they're pretty hot. Look @ Carmen Prado. :drool:

Spain is not a sexy team, but only Candela Sánchez is hotter than your two stupid blondies together. :)

I really don't know if it would be a good idea to let Jennifer play, because clay is her weakest surface :( any claycourt specialists from the USA?

GAMBILL RETURNS TO FWT TOUR

Monica Gambill will make her return to the FWT tour at the FED cup this week. Gambill has been out of tennis since Novembers doubles championships in which time she has had her first baby, 7 weeks ago.

'I don't know what shape i'll be in, i've been hitting the ball a LOT for 7 weeks but haven't done too much gym work so my fitness is a little questionable but that will come with playing matches.'

Monica was shocked to be picked to play a live tie as she hasn't played a singles match since the FWTT british championships which she won but with the top 3 active british players in fine form she was shocked.

'Paulas on the verge of top 10, Patsy's doing so well and Anna's in great form. Its a shame Patsy doesn't play FED cup but its her choice. I was hoping to maybe play a dead singles rubber or the doubles and just be here as a hitting partner and give my experience to the other players. But now i'm in this tie and i want to win. It will be tough but we can do it.'

Regla Torres is ready for Fed Cup glory



The Mexican star led Spain to Fed Cup victory in 2002 and sports an impressive 11-5 win-loss record in Fed Cup singles rubbers. In 2005, she led Cuba into the World Group for the first time but unfortunately the Cuban team wasn't able to take their place in the 2006 Group due to Noventz's retirement. In 2006, Torres switched her nationality to Mexico and helped Mexico regain their spot in the World Group by the end of the year after disappointedly been eliminated by Spain earlier in the year.

In 2007, Mexico finds herself without the top ranked Ana-Maria Herrera-Verdasco, who has been on a sabbatical and is expected to officially retire soon. Torres again captains the team but with Anjelica de la Courtiere who is making a comeback to competitive tennis.

The pair takes on the mighty #4 seeds United States. But the US is without her biggest star French Open champion Caroline Whitten. Still, Fed Cup, brings out the best in some players and Harper Johnson and Jennifer Casanova are expected to pose a huge challenge to the more fancied, Mexican pair playing on their favourite surface in front of their home crowd.
