Acura Classic/Olympics Question

I bought tickets to the Acura Classic and was all excited because this is the tournement that all of my favorites usually play. Then today after watching the olympic volleyball in the winter comercial it hit me. How many of my favorites are actually going to play Acura with the Olympics starting only ten days later? In the past Olympic years, how has the turnout been for Acura been? Do players that go to the Olympics genrally take time off to prepare. I really wanted to see Amanda Coetzer and I read that she really wanted to play the Olympics. Do you think I stand much of a chance of seeing my favorites?

Jelena Dokic, Daniela Hantuchova, Marion Bartoli, Elena Dementieva

The Olympic tennis tournament starts a full 2 weeks after Acura ends, so I think everyone will be there as a warmup, plus it's a tier 1 now and everyone loves that tourney anyway.

Justine will be there
Kim will be there (there's no way she'll miss a week of tennis!)
Venus will be there (she was robbed of 4 in a row last year! )
Lindsay will be there
