Re: ASB Classic (Auckland Open) to have a big announcement this afternoon....

If it's Maria, she'll probably pull out beforehand, or turn up, play one practice session to get her appearance money and then cry injury. That's what she's done the last two years in Brisbane anyhow.

Oh, I know what it is now.

I got an e-mail from them too.

It pays to have connections.

Why would I share? It's more fun to let everyone come up with crazy speculations.

You may or may not like to keep an eye on this thread... I will be happy to announce it, but only after they announce it #nicetry

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: ASB Classic (Auckland Open) to have a big announcement this afternoon....

Yeah, don't keep us in suspenders!

My final guess - Aga (she played there before, yeah?) or Sharapova.

I can not tell if you are being serious, but if you are... then keep your mouth shut

They have already said it is not Aga (she's playing Hopman cup isn't she? Plus she demanded ALOT of appearance money!)

Plus they don't really want her. I'm only going with Ana because I know they really want her.

If they don't get Ana we can assume the person they got was never the first choice.

Victoria Azarenka.
Serena Williams. Maria Sharapova.

Wozniacki. Stosur. Jankovic. Bouchard. Halep. Muguruza.
Venus. Stephens. Cornet. Hampton. Bencic.
Seles. Henin. Davenport. Hingis. Clijsters.

As an aside, I'm curious to know how much appearance money players get. I bet there's a thread here somewhere, and I'll have to hunt it down... but how much money is "A LOT" that Aga demanded?
