Fort Lauderdale - Not long now

With the first tournament in Fort Lauderdale only a month away I thought it was time to start the ball rolling!

The current entry list can be found here:

And it has also just been announced today that Walkenhorst's partner to replace the injured Laura Ludwig is Julia Grossner. It will be interesting how Kira steps up to the position as team leader.

You may have missed the news that April Ross has now come out of retirement and is back with her old partner Kerri Walsh Jennings, and are also planning on competing at Fort Lauderdale

Julia is a good player. Experience on highest level may lack a bit but she has been around for a while and i would not be surprised if she does well alongside Kira. I was actually wondering why team Grossner/Bieneck split. They had some decent results last year and i actually thought they could do well this year. It will be interesting too if we already see Borger/Kozuch in Fort Lauderdale.....

Looks pretty unpredictable and exciting with so many new pairs from everywhere. But it's also nice to see the ones who still stick together (like for example Lili and Elsa from Spain). I guess, Nadja Glenzke would be the "regular" new partner of Grossner, at least they have a team-page on facebook. With Holtwick/Semmler retired and Borger/Kozuch as a "work in progress", i would maybe expect Laboureur/Sude as the strongest german team until Laura Ludwig has recovered? :)

It does indeed. Can't wait to see who rises to the top.

That's interesting. It was only a couple of days ago on Facebook when they talked about their partnership together. Just a few days later and they become (temporary) court rivals.

So Laura managed to split a new team pairing before their first match. Impressive!

Kira has already said that the partnership will only be for one match though. It's in the penultimate question of this article.
