2005 Jun 12 - Bally and Janes set for Eastbourne
Elena Baltacha has been handed a tricky opening round match against Conchita Martinez at the
Hastings Direct Championships in Eastbourne.
If she can negotiate the experienced Spaniard she is likely to face an even tougher test against the
Belgium Kim Clijsters in the second round.
"I'm seeing some great players here this week but I can live with them on a good day.
"If you get to them before they have adjusted to the grass surface they sometimes fall away.
We'll see. You never know."
Amanda Janes will also face stiff competition as she takes on Nathalie Dechy of France.
Anne Keothavong, Jane O'Donoghue, Katie O'Brien and Rebecca Llewellyn crashed
out in qualifying.
