Another key match should be Wills (GBR) against Yong Fujun (CHN), if Yong defeats Custers (NED) previously.   1/8Eliminations Di Buo (ITA) will likely face Xue Hai Feng (CHN) Frangilli (ITA) will likely face Tsyrempilov (RUS)   1/4 Finals The winner of Di Buo – Feng could face the winner of Frangilli – Tsyrempilov Dobrowolski or Serano could face Nespoli (ITA)   The race is then going to be terrific between Di Buo, Frangilli, Nespoli, Feng, Dobrowolski and Serrano !   Recurve Women World Cup 2006 Winner, Zhang Juan Juan (CHN) is currently laying at the 5th position in the World Cup Ranking.

The race will be tight between Hofer (SUI), Dos Santos (BRA) and Logan Wilde (USA), whose brother, Reo, won the World Cup in 2006.   Place of main contenders in Dover in the current World Cup Ranking – the 4th place is currently at 34 points:   1 Jimenez (RUS) 53 points 2 Brasseur (FRA) 48 points 3 Gellenthien (USA) 46 points 4 Hofer (SUI) 34 points 5 Dos Santos (BRA) 33 points 6 L.

Goncharova (RUS), Van Natta (USA), Willems (BEL), Ericsson (SWE) and Davis (USA) have all a chance to qualify for the World Cup Final. However, nothing less than a semi-final in Dover should be enough. Moreover, Davis needs basically to win in Dover to qualify. Kazantseva (RUS) is already qualified and is awaiting her challengers. Shabani (IRI) still has hopes.   Place of main contenders in Dover in the current World Cup Ranking – the 4th place is currently at 40 points:   2 Goncharova (RUS) 47 points 4 Van Natta (USA) 40 points 5 Willems (BEL) 36 points 5 Ericsson (SWE) 36 points 7 Davis (USA) 26 points   Potential key matches:   1/32 and 1/16Eliminations No direct matches   1/4 Finals Davis (USA) should face Goncharova (RUS) Van Natta (USA) should face Loginova (RUS), recent silver medallist at the Leipzig World Championships.   1/2 Finals The winner of Van Natta - Loginova could face Willems (BEL) Ericsson (SWE) could face the winner of Davis - Goncharova   In case of ties Ties in the World Cup Ranking will be solved on the basis on:   1) The archers’ position in the FITA World Ranking issued immediately after Dover. 2) If the tie persists, archers position in the latest World Outdoor Target Championships (Leipzig 2007). 3) If the tie still persists or neither of the archers participated in the World Outdoor Championships (Leipzig 2007), the result of the last World Cup stage in which they both participated. 4) If still unresolved, a coin toss will be made.   We will watch some exciting matches on Thursday!   Didier Miéville FITA Communication
