I mean that women's tennis is more competitive these days because there is more competition for the top 2 places.

This week we had the clay Futures event in Bournemouth.

These are the results:

Singles   http://downloads.lta.org.uk/webservices/TempResults/060501Bournemouth10KWomens/smd.pdf
Doubles http://downloads.lta.org.uk/webservices/TempResults/060501Bournemouth10KWomens/dmd.pdf

We can see the name of Deborah Armstrong oft repeated out here. As a WC, she reached the quarters in singles and also the semis in doubles!
Whats more, she is only 17 years of age! She was born on 16th Jan 1989, missing my b'day by a day.

Ill say she is one to watch out for along with Naomi Cavaday and of course, Jade Curtis.

She misses my b'day as in my b'day only, not b'day and b'year. wink I am a year and a day older.

Anne Keothavong's new ranking is 140.  This matches her highest ranking ever (in 2003).   Lets hope next week her ranking goes up then shes on a new personal high.

She also plays doubles with Ivana Abramovic.
