Re: The Barcelona tournament is messing up Family Circle's player field!
I'm pretty upset about this. There are no Italians, no Spaniards. Peng and Morita and Mirza are here. I hate it that Anabel and Flavia aren't here. Anabel is practically a fixture at the Family Circle Cup, though Flavia skipped it last year, too. And it's really strange not having JJ here. If this is a trend, it's A very bad one, and one that will require some attention. FCC is a premiere tournament with a rich history of advocating for women's tennis.
Safina isn't here, either, and she usually comes to Charleston. Srebotnik, another FCC fixture, is still out with the injury. Radwanska and Szavay didn't return, either. There are some great players here--Vera, Elena, Venus, C-Woz, Patty, Domi, Marion, etc.--but so many are missing because of Barcelona!
