Big surprise is coming! I have heard many people are excited every December because it is time to release participating players, and fans finally find out who will come to play at the tournament.

Our website will release participating Singles Main Draw players on Friday, December 23 rd. Maria Sharapova is scheduled for participating for the tournament as defending champion. And who else? Find out the contents and be excited! It should be just right for Christmas present for you.

It is not that hard to guess that the "Big Surprise" is Martina Hingis
She loves Tokyo and of course will play here

Well it looks to me that if that is the case, she might not be playing Syndey.
It doesn't seem to be that sane to play possibly 5 weeks in a row with the possibility of a foot and ankle injury coming back again.

Likely Hingis, although Monica DOES love this tournament.

5 weeks full tennis? You are certainly quite optimistic. It could be just 3 matches before Tokyo

5 weeks won't be that crazy for Hingis because it's not like she'll be getting deep into the later rounds of all those tournaments. I see her winning maybe reaching quarters at best. One cannot expect her to just come back and start winning matches.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.
