Arrow Early Commitments for Paris, Antwerp, Memphis

I know some of this may have been posted before but I believe there is some new info here:

According to the tourney websites:

Paris:
Mauresmo, Sharapova, Dementieva, Pierce, Dechy, Golovin

Antwerp:
Mauresmo, V Williams, Clijsters, Dementieva, Myskina

Memphis:
Zvonareva, Vaidisova, Raymond
Roddick, Fish

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lindzi, Jen missing but that is expected ...
but Justine, Serena not playing any of these tourneys? I thought Serena always played Paris and Justine Antwerp

Hopefully Hingis enters Antwerp Main Draw on top of exhibition against Sabitini

I was thinking of not being a ball kid and jsut going on SF and Finals..but now that Nicole is here I will be a ball kid..for those that dont know if you are a ball kid in Memphis you get a free pass the whole week for any matches you want..like a wristband at the fair..but the wristbands are always pink

I think the WTA is really trying to hype Nicole as their next big Phenom ... In some interview, Larry Scott mentioned a bunch of the top players, then mentioned Nicole and Sesil as being "thrown into the mix in 2005" ... Now they are going out of their way to advertise her as an early commitment

Then in their list of top ranking movers for 2004, they omit Na Li and drool over Nicole

Well these are still early commitments so hopefully Serena plays in Paris as she has a good record there.

Hopefully, Venus gets the Diamond racquet.

Serena Williams
Venus Williams
Ana Ivanovic
Tatiana Golovin

Henin is not playing in Antwerp, the first years she did. But in fact the indoortournament doesn't really fit in her calendar. She had an argument with the tournaments director last year, about him promoting Kim too much or something lik that. But that's all solved, it's just because she can't match it with her schedule.
Too bad I think, when such a small country as Belgium has two worldclass players and there is a tournament on home soil; it's only being polite to show up as a player.
