Guess Lindsay won't be defending her Cincinnati win from last year. But the field is stronger than last year, I think.

Amelie needs to play more than one warmup, in my opinion. But then, Amelie never listens to me.

I can't imagine Serena playing all four tournaments, especially in the shape she's in at the moment. Maybe she thinks she can play her way into better condition for the U.S. Open. But she really needs to heal that ankle and lose that extra weight.

i don't think serena will play 4 tournaments before the us open. i'll be surprised if she plays more than 2.
kim as usual plays in every tournament and will likely injure some part of her body!!!

Ya'll dont know what Venus has planned to play??? I know she normally plays the Acura Classic because she's won that twice and she plays JP morgan too. Venus said in a interview that she does not think Serena is going to play anymore tournaments this year...and that she is working on getting back fit.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Kim AND Serena down for all four!? That's not right.....I sort of expected Kim to play 3 or 4 of them, but surely Serena won't play four......I would have put Serena down for just 2.

Oh well, we'll see what happens in the near future. Maybe Serena won't to see how her prep pans out because hasn't she hurt her ankle or something? Is it the reason she's not playing Fed Cup? Hopefully she'll be fine and wouldn't need that much match practice

I was expecting Lindsay to just do the 3, then she can take 2 weeks off before the US open then A two week rest helped her to prepare for Wimbledon, so hopefully it'll work for the US too

Expect Lindsay to withdraw from one event because of the injury in the Wimbledon final and possibly enter the Rogers Cup (major wishful thinking) or New Haven. Serena also still has the injury so expect her to withdraw from a few of her events too. Stupid Dementieva, she loses 2nd round in Montreal but made the SF in Toronto the year before, and now she's not coming back- though Toronto is arguably the slowest hard court tune up (best for her game).

Kim could really start racking up points again.

Serena's schedule seems a little optimistic to me.

Why so few for Anastasia - family problems ?

Og the HC in Toronto is everything, but slow???

I think it is the same like in Montreal and this one is definitely NOT slow.
