Wow- this is great. I don't know why they
zapped that event from the schedule. There
were some outstanding matches from
Philly. I recall the brutal Steffi vs LD a couple
of years ago back in 1998. The standard of match quality
was usually really high at this tournament.


Don't know why I was thinking of Van Roost. She
did upsets at the Porsche in Europe. I'm thinking of
Testud and Julie Halard. Those two were usually really
into it. Anyway- the seats were close, and the crowds
were always good spirited.

I'm sure you guys will have a great time
at this year's tournament.

wow, with the competition, they've got to make it a tier 1

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Yeah, Serena is definitely playing, but I think those other players have been on the website for a while, I don't think they've all committed.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

They zapped it because the championships moved to Munich. It made no sense to have Philly the week before the finale in germany.

Glad to see it back. Philly's always been a reliable event for the WTA, and Lindsay's always loved it too.

kim doesn't have this tournament on her schedule on her site

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

Serena to play at 'Nova
By Larry Eichel
Inquirer Staff Writer

Serena Williams was home in the Florida heat yesterday, preparing for her title defense at Wimbledon the week after next. She was working out, with an emphasis on the glutes, hitting balls and reading three newly arrived scripts.

The world's top-ranked female tennis player, you see, views herself as an aspiring actress, as well as a model, fashion designer and makeup artist.

Her future, she hopes, includes a challenging and desirable screen role, meaning one that doesn't have her cast as a tennis star or "where I'm laid out on the ground, strung out on something...

"I believe I'm a good actress, and I have a lot of skill," said Williams, 21. "I want to challenge myself, and playing a tennis role isn't challenging at all."

One item that's definitely on her calendar - prospective film career notwithstanding - is a trip to the Philadelphia area for some competitive tennis.

In a conference call with reporters, she announced that she would play at the Advanta Championships, which return to the Pavilion at Villanova this fall after a two-year hiatus.

The event had a successful 10-year run through 2000. But it disappeared when the WTA Tour moved its season-ending championship, which always came the week after the Advanta, from New York to Munich, Germany. With that, the Advanta's slot moved, too, from Philadelphia to Nice, France.

Now the finale has come back to the United States, to Los Angeles, and Philadelphia is back in business for at least the next three years.

This will be the first time Williams has competed in the Philadelphia area; she came to the tournament in 1997 to watch sister Venus play.

The Advanta Championships are to run from Oct. 27 through Nov. 2. Tickets for the tournament go on sale this morning. They may be purchased online at www.advantachampionships.com or by calling 866-836-6475.
