I think I read that Venus would play and maybe Cappy!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Ya..
it's strange that the entry list has not announanced yet....

This exhitbition has featured a lot of great players in the past!
Such as Steffi Graf,Williams sisters, Martina Hingis,Amanda Coetzer,Jelena Dokic,Elena Demetieva, Lisa Raymond...
Wonderful matchup!
Hope that they will invite the Belgians' girls this year!

yeah the entry hs always been great and there is always at least one player who will go on and win a slam in that year so it is good for Superstitious reason

1999 Serena and Graf
2000 Pierce
2001 Capriati
2002 Capriati

so it is good for the player if they play here

Have heard that Venus decided to change her mind and isnt playing anymore - but that they have secured Seles and Hingis - they will be the 2 big names at the event. Capriati is not playing.

Neither Capriati nor Venus have committed to Gold Coast or Auckland though.

Capriatii has played Hong Kong the last three years and followed it up with shitty Sydney showings and great Aussie Open showings. Hope this decision doesn't rock that boat!!!

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

The winner of 2001 was Dokic beating Anna(Kournikova beat Jennifer in semis 3-6 7-5 6-0 [11 games in a row])

No I don't mean it the player who won, I mean the player(s) who went on to win a slam in that year
