Draw size: 16 (no qualifying, no doubles)

Could this be pre-qualifying for the USO?

True about the prize $$, the WTA site just states New Event for 2004.

I assume this prize money is the same as a regular Tier V but as there's only 16 players and no doubles or qualies the money goes down to $65K.

Pretty bizarre anyway to have a 16 players field
