Re: Stanford or LA: which is better for a fan?
Have you seen the commitment list for Stanford? Sharapova, Williams x 2, Jankovic, Dementieva. Though not announced, I imagine the usuals like Hantuchova, Sugiyama, Bartoli, Chakvetadze, Schnyder, Mirza, Mattek, Dulko, and Peer will also show up.
If all those players actually show up, it will one great tournament! NOTE: That is one big "IF"! Anyone who is famaliar with this tournament already knows how high the drop out rate has been the last couple of years.
