Antwerp field weakening out

What started out as an amazing field, may become a field of non-stars if some of them actually will pull out.

*: doubtful wil injury, sickness, other problem
: unofficial



- Justine Henin-Hardenne
- Kim Clijsters
- Amelie Mauresmo* or Chanda Rubin*
- Venus Williams*
- Jennifer Capriati Elena Dementieva
- Ai Sugiyama
- Patty Schnyder
- Jelena Dokic*
- Magdalena Maleeva
- Anna Smashnova
- Francesca Schiavone
- Silvia Farina-Elia
- Magui Serna
- Nathalie Dechy
- Eleni Daniilidou
- Tina Pisnik
- Svetlana Kuznetsova
- Mary Pierce
- Katarina Srebotnik
- Petra Mandula
- Maria Vento-Kabchi
- Denisa Chladkova
- Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo
- Kirsten Flipkens Els Callens
- Elke Clijsters*

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I just hope it's not like Tokyo. What a bad week for injuries! Way too many walkovers! Here's to a healthy February for the WTA!

And Callens, a Belgian winning the event, just as verbeeck wanted

This is hilarious. Really? Oh God. It's another ABF(All Belgian Final).
It's the Kimmy and Juju show plus other guests.

Do you think VIGGEN and I can enter this event?

What???? Elke Clijsters is doubtful for this tournament??? Nooooooo!!!!! Please, anyone but Elke. This tournament needs her. If she pulls out, tennis is dead to me.

The WTAworld Quote Hall of Fame (recent entries):
"All this year Kim has been have catwalk draws ..." - leslie, on Kim Clijsters' easy draws in 2003
"I wanna see Anna, I bet I could tape that ass" - SerenaSlam, on fan perception of Anna K.
"n I am more of a retard, yes." - gogomaggie
"she has a face of a cereal killer" - Naldo, on Serena Williams

Though things are pretty bad these days with injuries, isn't that was happens nearly all the time?

They announce the strongest field ever, as they compare it to the field that actually showed up in the previous years.

Last year Amelie was a late withdrawl as well (not blaiming her, that just the way things go)

Venus will want to try for the diamond racket, but as always, no Williams sister is a sure thing in a match til she shows up. (When Venus Williams is your favorite player, you have to learn to live with this. At least she never shows up fat.)

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

im having 2nd thoughts about ms Venus entering in this event...
I dont think that one and a half week if enought for her to heal up and prepare as hard as she wanted to, to beat the likes of kim and justine.

I wouldnt be surprise is she didnt show up...
but I dont think that shes scared for the competition anyway...
so... she will show up.. and get that racket..

VCR, there's no draw for Antwerp yet, it will be next week!

And you wanna see a weak draw, take a look at Gaz de France!
