Linz: yes or no?

ok ...
Her official website sys she won't play but on the tournaments official site http://www.generali-ladies.at/ she is still the highest player playing there! They updated the site on september 29

What do you think? Will she play? Do you want her to play?

Well I don't know She has a lot of points to defend but I don't want her to be tired for LA.

I kinda don't want her to play, even through I'd see her on Eurosport & she'll lose some points there
I heard that WTA tries to convience her to play, but Carlos doesn't like the idea

I just hope that the chice will be good for her whatever it'll be

Still don't want her to play (she looked so tired in her last finals )

The WTA "forces" her to play there.....Carlos said that in a belgian paper today. He said Justine is really tired. Playing Linz would be a bad choice from Justine he added... but it's up to her to decide.

C'mon Belgians

I can understand Linz a bit because Justine is the one who must attrack the public ... well if she plays I hope the tournament will give her everything she askes and gives her the best possible scedule!

This is what Jemp (webmaster from her official site posted):
Elle est sur la liste, mais elle ne va pas y jouer sauf si elle se sent 100% en condition. Elle ne veut pas risquer sa santé. Pour l'instant le Masters est plus important que les points ā défendre ā Linz.

Mais c'est vrai que le WTA pousse un peut.

My translation (frensh isn't my best friend ):
Justine is still on the list but she won't play if she's not 100% fit. she doesn't want to risc her health. The Masters are more important than defending her points in Linz. But it's true that the WTA is forciing her a bit to play.

So if she plays we know she's fit enough to play it I'll support her no matter what she does

This is the last important decision for Justine this season. The #1 ranking, rests on this decision. If Justine plays Linz, whe will most likely wear her self out before LA and only have one short week to recover before the tennis and busy public events get under way at the Staples Center.

Zurich and LA is what's going to determine the year-end #1. The USO took so much out of Justine that in both the Myskina and Clijsters finals, she ran out of gas in the end. Her little stature is taking its toll now. No matter how strong you are, you still need rest.

Also, there were Justine quotes saying that she wishes she was back in Florida to train with Pat because of her limited work-outs and practices in Europe this time of year. I really hope JuJu skips Linz and goes backs to Florida as soon as possible to win the World Championships.

I hope so, too. Unfortunately, Justine may not have too much say in this. Apparently there's a rule saying that the WTA can force players to play in certain events, and if the player doesn't agree, the fines can be fairly harsh. She may not want to play, but if it comes down to the WTA forcing her to pay or having to compensate the Linz tournament because they didn't provide the right players ... well, I have a bad feeling that they'll forget about how worn out Justine is.

IMO, it would be very unfair if they make Justine play and not Serena (who was also committed).

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Well, I guess she (Ju) listened to us .
She WON'T play Linz, announces her official site.

that's good to hear. also, with her Linz points going to be taken off, Kim will most likely end the year #1.....but I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather win a French Open and US Open titles

Again, Justine is #1 at heart as many think as well as her self. I would love to see Justine be ranked #2 and win the World Championships rather than be #2 and play these small events to try to reach #1 and get worn down.

FLORIDA awaits Justine
