My Comments

The ladies have made great progress
Ahh, I think there are more than Orie Hida who are "dangerous". If the ladies can keep their nerves under control, then I already think that the quarterfinals can bring really good games and maybe big surprises.

Good to see Sruong Soledad Claudia and Jackeline in the event as we in Europe don't see enough of them. Therese and Orie are fans but don't rule out Yemi or Karina out. Pity my three favourite players aren't playing in Irena Hamblakova and Gulsen Degener and Steffi Daske. Good Luck to everyone in the event and will be following the event with interest
