WTA Tour Stopping in Cincinnati

The WTA tour is playing in Cincinnati next year, I think the week before the men, either way, it's the same week as the Olympics. Do you think they'll be a big showing with top players?? They advertise it with Kim playing there.

"On the coin toss Martina said, "Do you want me to break your serve first or hold?" The umpire looked shocked. But we just both cracked up."
Lindsay Davenport, on a match she played with Martina Hingis.

Elena Dementieva
Justine Henin
Jennifer Capriati
Lindsay Davenport
Daniela Hantuchova
Kim Clijsters
Chanda Rubin

Kim will probably play, since she won't be in the Olympics...

I know, that's why I asked about other big players?

This sponsor stuff is the most ridiculous reason I've ever heard to miss Olympics!

I bet Kim will have regrets when she realizes...

Jennifer might be there too as she is ineligible for the Olympics.

I know!!! It's the Olympics. I don't know about you, but to give a medal to my country would motivate me so much more and I would be so proud to go there and play for my nation. She's missing a big opportunity there!

I thought that the Cincinnati tournament was a tier 3?

I hope so b/c this will be my first women's event, and it's the only one really close to where I live!!

Visit MONICA!

I am a sinner too!
Jesus answered and said to him[Nicodemus, a Pharisee],"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again[of the Spirit/above], he cannot see the kingdom of God."--John 3:3

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!

Since when is Jen not eligible for the Olympics? She most certainly is eligible.

It is a Tier 3, but could be a "bigger" Tier 3 since some of the upper ranked players might not play/be able/want to play the Olys.

Considering that there are so many "big" tournaments with a lot more prize money in a very condensed period (Stamford, LA, San Diego, Canada, New Haven) I doubt that all those top players will play the Tier III cincinatti tournament. But probably one will, and I'm sure it will be a good field.

Unless I am worng, according to the rules, a player who wants to be eligible for consideration for the 2004 Olympic team must have played Fed Cup at most two years prior to the start of the Olympics. Since the Olympics are next year, a player would have had to have played Fed Cup in 2002 and/or 2003. Venus, Serena, Lindsay, Monica, Lisa (Raymond), Alexandra (Stevenson), Meghann and Martina N. (who is scheduled to play next week) are all eligible. Jennifer didn't play in 2002 (she was kicked off the team) and she didn't play this year, therefore, she cannot be considered for the team. That is the same reason why Jelena Dokic cannot play in the Olympics next year (because she refused to play Fed Cup for Serbia or Austraalia).

I think Jen is eligible. All you have to do is make yourself available to play Fed Cup and you are eligible for the Olympics. She made herself available for Fed Cup, but BJK didn't pick her for obvious reasons.
