Julieta Granada on her way to victory in 2007

“Playing every hole we keep remembering all the shots. We hope we can do the same this year.”

Granada came into last year’s tournament on the back of a victory at the lucrative ADT Championship, but 2007 was not as good a season for the Asuncion-born player. “I struggled a bit,” says Granada. “I took some time off this season but now I’m ready to go.”

Granada finished runner-up twice and three times in the top-10, ensuring that she still made a healthy $395, 440 in prize money.
Granada and Troche are not expected to change their strategy this time around. Last year they captured the imagination of the golfing public with their friendly smile and fun disposition. This year we can expect the same says Granada.

“Our strategy is going to be the same. The most important thing is to have fun and just keep on smiling and really enjoy this tournament. It is a treat for us to represent our country. We will try to represent our people well and do a good job.”
