Re: Wish They Were in DUBAI...! ! !

Why isn't Justine there, she owned the tourny before she retired. Dubai was to her what Miami is to Serena. hopefully Venus defends her title.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Wish They Were in DUBAI...! ! !

I think the tour should be out of Dubai after last year.
But I guess the money is too good to pass up.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I heard somewhere that if Justine played in Dubai she'd get a ranking back and would thus be forced to play both Indian Wells and Miami. She never seemed to like playing in Miami and often missed it so by waiting till Indian Wells, she will remain without a ranking long enough to avoid being forced into Miami. I don't know if this is true but I read that somewhere
Too many top players missing, and at the start of the year

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"

It's a shame. They are B list, except for Venus.
