Tennis stars in Dublin !?!

My friend from Dublin told me yesterday that the top-stars like Davenport, Serena Williams & Co will play an exhibition in Dublin/ Ireland in December.

Anyone else heard about it too? Any Details?

This is great news for Dublin, and I'm happy that top-flight tennis is coming to that city.

But it also exposes a common falacy. If you give pro tennis players an off season, they will rest and train! No indeed, most will fly here and there, playing exhibitions!

the one and only time u will see me type the "man am i glad to live in dublin" and wudn't u know, 10minutes away from the venue where the exhibition takes place, SCORE
we all know that when it comes to tennis, ireland in general lacks in wta involvement....
not this time anyway!!!

i actually have no idea who's going to be playing, i'm not even sure if it is a ladies exhibit, it wud be a real kick up the arse to find it was a mens tourney

So far, Lindsay, Venus, Serena and AnnaK have all been reported to be playing in it, I wonder who the other European players are going to be.
