Will WTA force Top 10-er from s'Hertogenbosch to play Eastbourne

I think it happened a few years ago. Eastbourne has lost Ivanovic and Bartoli is doubtful after her comments today which would leave Eastbourne without a Top 10 player.
Can the WTA force one or more of the Top 10 players scheduled for s'Hertogenbosch to come to Eastbourne instead?

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

That's not true. Sveta is in the draw as a late entry.

Amelie Mauresmo

Oh, thanks, I didn't know about Svetlana. Not one of my faves, but I'm pleased to have a big name to watch next week anyway!

Sveta,Lindsay and Amelie is enough!
They are all in the gold and silver exempt list, meaning they can attract crowds.

I totally agree that Lindsay and Amelie are crowd-pleasers and I will really look forward to seeing them. But the WTA needs to get more Top 10 players here.

I think JJ should go if she wins if things could get really tight(if tehy already aren't between her and Ana

Jelena Jankovic
- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...

As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

Victoria Azarenka ~ Venus Williams
Maria Kirilenko ~ Petra Kvitova

I remember when Mauresmo was assigned to play Dubai last year because the field didn't fulfil the WTA's commitments to the tournament.

But Eastbourne doesn't have the €€€, I mean the prestigious history, of the Middle East events.

Kvitova * Garcia * Konjuh * Dodin * Robson * Haddad Maia
