Silvia Soler Espinosa - WTA
The International Tennis Federation has accepted the invitation request by the Spanish Federation for the tennis player from Elche to be intergrated into Spanish womens team in the Olympics.
The tennis player from Elche, Silvia Soler, has been included in the list of the Spanish delegation to participate in the tennis championship the next Olympics in 2012. The Olympic team that will meet in the English city have a total of four, which is the maximum allowed, for the two categories, the men's singles chart and female.
In principle, the athlete of Elche was out of the Olympic team due to the severe injury she suffered to her ankle, but the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation has applied for inclusion, arguing that the player had recovered well from her physical problems.
Moreover, the fact that the maximum number of representatives to participate in the Olympics is four players for national team and the Spanish roster had only three, has made the decision.
Thus, Silvia Soler joins her colleagues Anabel Medina, Carla Suarez and Maria Jose Martinez, who had been previously selected for the individual category female, to represent Spain in London 2012. The list is completed by Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Nicolas Almagro and Fernando Verdasco in the men's singles.
While in women's doubles there will be Arantxa Parra Medina and Nuria Llagostera with Maria Jose Martinez. And men will be Nadal and David Ferrer Marcel Granollers with Feliciano Lopez.
The Elche player received the news in London, where she is competing for the first time in her career at Wimbledon where she spent the second round after beating Romania's Gallovits-Hall.
