Damn. That means Ana could get LenaD as early as semis now. If Ana even gets there of course.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Tokyo UPDATE: Serena & Venus withdraw !!!

i think dementieva will win Tokyo. She does well at these kinda non GS events. Plus she will be motivated to beat JJ. So she'll rise up to #3

Well already knew they weren't playing one week after an Olympic and US Open run with literally no break.

that's why i don't see why this is an update...wimbledon singles final AND doubles final for both, WTT, olympics, us open...add to that the fact that serena said her next step is europe

Re: Tokyo UPDATE: Serena & Venus withdraw !!!

so who are the top seeds?
I know there're Flavia, Lena, Schnyder

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

^Flavia won't be seeded. The top seeds now are, in order: Jelena, Ana, LenaD, Safina, and so on.

Ana is playing this? I thought she would sit this one out to regroup. I hope that she performs well.

Re: Tokyo UPDATE: Serena & Venus withdraw !!!

^Well Ana said in her diary on 7th Sept that:
'I just wanted to write a quick note to say that I am back training hard, and very motivated for my next tournaments in Tokyo and Beijing.
...
...
I am just practising, making sure I am ready for the tournaments in Asia. I will go to Tokyo on Thursday. I can't wait to get back on the court and compete.'

Re: Tokyo UPDATE: Serena & Venus withdraw !!!

I actually think this is a great thing from them. Venus & Serena put their hearts into the last month of Olympics & the Open. Don't get on another long plane ride so quickly to play more grueling tennis.
