Sorry I didn't post any headlines this week, guys. I'm just extremely busy at the moment :eek:

Also, I have been doing the doubles pairing by free will...so far haven't had any complaints, but some of you have had several different partners, due to some players withdrawing. If you have a preference to who you would like to be paired with next week, please, I say PLEASE inform me. Lol :D

JANS SET FOR DUBAI

Julia Jans heads into the tier-one Dubai event coming off a win in Antwerp in singles and a semi-final performance in doubles. Jans hopes that her win last week will carry over this week and make sure that a 1R loss that she saw in Tokyo, will not happen again. She will face Martina Navratilova in the first round of play. Jans, however, is quite disappointed with the doubles draw. Here is what she had to say:

"I am quite boggled by the fact that Manuela and I have to qualify, considering my top 3 ranking in doubles, and the fact that we are a very successful team. Anyway, I will talk to the organizers, but I'm sure we can qualify to the main draw. :D"

Steven,

I rechecked both my new mail and old mail, and I didn't receive a team submission for Maggie.

Sorry guys,

I had a midterm essay due yesterday, so I didn't have time to post results and today I have an away tennis match, so I won't be able to post results until I get back later tonight.

Hopefully 1st through quarterfinal results will be posted late tonight. If not, definetly by tomorrow.

A close first round win, but a dangerous qualifier in the quarters.

Thank you Jeff! :wavey:

Martina Hingis is shocked to have won her first round match here in Dubai. She was expecting another early exit after injuring herself during practise :angel: She's looking forward to a QF match with Julia Jans, but again does not expect much from herself since she's not in the best of forms this week! ;)

Julia Jans, coming off a scare of personal problems, played magnificently in the first round. Playing the tough player in Martina Navratilova, Jans squeeked out a win 7-6(6) 3-6 7-6(13-11). Even if Jans faulters in the early rounds, her lead at no.1 will grow. Both no.2 ranked Iva Majoli and no.3 ranked Amanda Coetzer were upset in the first round of play. In doubles news, Jans qualified with partner Manuela Maleeva-Fragniere to reach the main draw. Good luck to both of them!
