Re: frenchies commitments next year? (esp. in january) ;)

Via - there shouldn't be a problem finding last minute accomoodation... last year I booked a week before through the flight centre site I think, and it's ok. i don't think Aus Open is as crazy as say Grand Prix when everything is expensive. But you might want to do your research now and see which hotels you want to stay at (close to everything, got the facilities you want etc) so you can just jump in and buy when you see a good deal!


lol... it seems that sunday is the only real "tennis free" day!!! i'm trying to stay away from shopping... cos i'll be broke by then...!!!

Re: frenchies commitments next year? (esp. in january) ;)

That's official, Richard and Tatiana won't play the Hopman Cup. Both decided it's better to play a tournament (him, in Noumea, her, in Gold Coast) than to play the qualifs of HC, (cos if they don't win the qualifs, they won't play of the week).
I'm very disapointed for you, liz and yes, you will can insult him when you will meet him in Melbourne ! (for french insults, I know you're luent ... )

Re: frenchies commitments next year? (esp. in january) ;)

thanks for the advice, kat!!! yes that's usually what i do anyway these days with hotels... but i happened to find one at the lastminute site which had its AO two weeks all crossed out, (no discount offer) and that made me a little nervous!

well anyway, now we know there's a last resort somewhere in suburban melbourne, with a esther as hostess

marine - no tennis and cold weather, that's us in june, no need to hehehe

poor liz, that's the worst nightmare for a fan after everything is booked!.... let's hope perth has other attractions

aren't you on your L plates? we can hop right in

i had stayed with friends in a suburb called doncaster before, i had to take a bus to get to the city for the tennis. i didn't find it that bad though. i had lots of time to waste

oh liz if you had prior notice, maybe a package to new caledonia wasn't such a bad idea! there're lots of advertising right now. i never been there, never knew that it's a tennis 'stop'!!! but it's supposed to be closer to sydney than perth is.

If only dad had a business trip planned there, I could have gone for free.

Btw, I used to live in Doncaster

France out of Hopman Cup
December 13, 2004


A MIX-UP over entries has forced France to withdraw from the Hopman Cup mixed teams tennis event in Perth next month.

Exciting teenager Tatiana Golovin entered the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts WTA event on the Gold Coast in the same week, unknown to French team officials.

Facing a fine for a no-show at a tour event, the French allowed their 16-year-old to go ahead with her Gold Coast appointment and withdrew from the ITF-sanctioned Hopman Cup to be replaced by Zimbabwe.

Re: frenchies commitments next year? (esp. in january) ;)

Finally had the chance to read the posts here and I am just so green with envy (and blue from the cold air outside - its a miserable 48F here in south Florida!)

I anxiously await your lovely reports, ladies (and photos, of course!)

dont you think sometimes that perhaps, richard and tati Have their own reasons for not playing the hopman cup???

Your curses against richard proves 1) that you are intolerant

2) you dont know that a tennis player career is made of choices, richard has made his decision thats all

Respect it and players in general.

Come Back Tournament: HAMBURG.

Allez!
