WTA's Titleless Top 15 Girls Shuai & Domi Getting Apperance $$$ in Dallas MM?

is it possible that Dallas MM is paying appearance money for the 1st edition of the tournament ??? I can't think of any other reason why the top 2 seeds, Shuai and Domi would play here ... Shuai has a chronic hip injury and Domi a ab injury

Stanford - Domi give walkover to Marion in SF, allowing Marion in final
San Diego - Domi give walkover to CoCo in R32, allowing CoCo in R16 and Sabine in SF
San Diego - Shuai is clearly injured but finishes her QF match w/ Ana
Toronto - Domi retires in 3s of her 1R match with Iveta, allowing Iveta in 2R and Ana in 3R
Toronto - Shuai give walkover to Na in 2R, allowing Na in R16
Cincy - Domi withdraws from tournament
Cincy - Shuai gives walkover to JaJa in QF, allowing JaJa in SF

now both girls are playing in a MM the week before a GS

Is it impossible for you to discuss issues in a thread not made by yourself?

I also can't imagine the Tournament directors paying appearance fees for Peng and Cibulkova I think they both felt that this was a nice chance to finally grab that first title and it's just bad timing now with both of them being injured.

D. HANTUCHOVA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - E. VESNINA - E. SVITOLINA
J. GOERGES - A. WOZNIAK - Y. WICKMAYER - E. BOUCHARD - Ka. PLISKOVA

Why are people against appearance fees? I know here a couple are injured, but they may be feeling better and still want to get some match play in or they are planning to withdraw?

Yes, they probably are receiving some $, and they both want their 1st title. It's crazy to me that neither has one, especially Peng, it seems like she has been around forever.

Re: WTA's Titleless Top 15 Girls Shuai & Domi Getting Apperance $$$ in Dallas MM?

They have to pay some money for players to fly back to Texas from the East Coast the week before the US Open. It doesn´t make much sense to go from Cailfornia to the East Coast, back to Texas and back to the East Coast. That sounds like something only Wozniacki would do in preparation for a Grand Slam.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 25 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 25 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

I cant imagine they would draw a lot of fans in Texas.
Not like Texans know every top 30 player.

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

As expected and for those who are in the know of WTA's late withdrawal regime the logical outcome:

We are sad to learn of the recent withdrawal of Peng Shuai with a left hip injury. She is replaced by Lucky Loser Akgul Amanmuradova.

Dominika definitely needs matches before the Open. It's a shame that Shushu can't play...
