Why should they? They'd all rather play elsewhere/rest/practice.

Why ?? ... Indian Wells use to mean something but it usually has a field comparable to a tier II its a little better this year but only a little. I guess they cant compete with Miami.

untrue, most of the seeds are usually there. kim won it 2 years ago, lindsay before that. this year kim is playing a reduced schedule and henin had her schedule thrown off by her divorce.

Re: Henin, Mauresmo, Clijsters---INDIAN WELLS?

If it's not a mandatory event, then I'm surprised and maybe it should lose its status. In fact, there was talk of that event been moved to another venue, even country but a new sponsor was found a couple of years ago.

In fact, Svetlana was not planning to play the event either, her agent told me that a month ago but she had a last minute change of plans and has decided to play.

A few years ago the likes of Davenport and Graf, Seles would play Indian Wells, Miami, green clay events, Italian open then roland Garros but players are looking to reduce their schedule more and more now it seems.
