Re: SEWTA Sophia MM YEC 375: VENUS Takes The FINAL Spot In The Field

No info about Kaia K. yet...

KAIA HAS TO WITHDRAW FROM KREMLIN CUP

After Korea Open, Kaia felt some pain in her right heel and now is also forced to skip the WTA tournament in Moscow.

Kaia’s own words: „After tough practices my right heel still hurts. When I qualify for Sofia, of course I would like to play. But there is nothing certain. I just want my legs to be ok. I am doing physical trainings and get laser treatment form my heels twice a day. We’ll see how that works. Later this week I will go and show the pictures of my heels also to a specialist in Finland. Then we can make a decision here about the future treatment if needed.”

It makes the Sofia people look a TINY bit unprofessional that they still have a picture of Errani on the players page!

She probably doesn´t know that thing exists or that she qualified for it.

Not that I disagree that she won´t play.

It's another potential title/notch under her belt.

When you really think about it, why would a player that we abuse--so often--of not caring about Grand Slams, thumb her nose at Sofia?

Can you say title #21, and a potential new Air Bulgaria Sophia winner ("What Airline Does The Sophia Tournament Of Champions Winner Fly")?

I repeat; of course she'll be there (unless there's a high paying exhibition in Tijuana, Botswana, Montenegro, Reykjavík Iceland or some where else) .

It has now been officially announced.

Zheng Jie replaces Kaia Kanepi.
Daniela Hantuchova replaces Venus Williams.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) today announced the eight players who will contest the Qatar Airways Tournament of Champions Sofia, the annual seasonending championships for the WTA’s International tournaments, taking place in Bulgaria’s capital
city from October 30 – November 4, 2012. With total prize money of $750,000, the event is to be
played on an indoor hardcourt at Sofia’s Arena Armeec.

Caroline Wozniacki, Nadia Petrova, Roberta Vinci, Hsieh Su-Wei, Zheng Jie and Daniela Hantuchova are the six highest-ranked International Series tournament winners (excluding players who qualified for the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships, as well as the injured Kaia Kanepi and Venus Williams, who won the title at Luxembourg last week but has longstanding commitments in South Africa), thereby qualifying for the 2012 Tournament of Champions. Russia’s Maria Kirilenko and Bulgarian star Tsvetana Pironkova have been awarded wildcards, rounding out the Sofia field.

“I would like to congratulate this prestigious group of players on their success in 2012 as they eagerly await the start of the Qatar Airways Tournament of Champions Sofia,” said Stacey Allaster, WTA Chairman and CEO. “This is a very strong field, with each player having a tremendous amount of success. Amongst the group, there are nine WTA singles titles and tennis fans in Sofia are in for a
week incredible week of women’s tennis."

“We are delighted to have such a strong player field for the first staging of the Qatar Airways Tournament of Champions Sofia,” said Stefan Tzvetkov, President of the Bulgarian Tennis Federation and the event’s Tournament Director. “We look forward to welcoming these stars of
women’s tennis to Bulgaria, where everyone is looking forward to an exciting event.” http://sofia-tennis.bg/en/news/Jasni...-za-Sofija-132
