Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova is out with the flu.

Amelie Mauresmo from France still suffers from a back muscle strain.

A right toe sprain troubles Francesca Schiavone from Italy.

Forgot to mention Tatiana Panova (although she's ranked around #130, she would have had WC for IW)

Didn't Hantuchova retire because of injury as well? Nadia Petrova has that gluteal strain and Dokic has a groin pull.

and Kim's got that floating piece of bone in her foot that she says she'll have to seriously think about in the coming months because it could affect her career.

and yeah, Justine is playing IW this year, she's skipping out on Miami instead

Nat Dechy is one the most injury prone players on WTA (apart from Anna and Nadia)

I think Justine's move is dumb to skip the 5th biggest tournament of the year in Miami, to play that low-down tier I at Indian Wells......pffff.....

Laugh as you may Sebastian, but Indian Wells does not even compare to the Nasdaq-100 in Key Biscayne.

I wouldn't be so sure of it...
But still - compare Indian Wells with the Tokio tournament which is Tier I as well

What makes Nasdaq bigger?? they have the same number of draws!!!! Number 1 and 2 are committed to play. Its also a two weeks tournament!!!

The only thing that make nasdaq more popular is because it was held at the same time ATP's one the biggest tournament aside from GS is also held.

no, Nasdaq has the sisters, and the finals are always good. Plus there is better TV coverage, and the atmosphere is somehow more serious.
