Thoughts on Paris Indoors draw...
Last year, this tournament had Serena, Elena, Jelena, Amelie
They seriously need to consider moving this event back because obviously top players are boycotting it in droves. Elena probably wouldn't be here if Paris GDF wasn't one of her main sponsors.
I thought under the new roadmap, byes in the first round were a thing of the past unless there were certain other factors to take into account-GS or PM tournament taking place the following week. Last year there were no byes in either Sydney or Paris and this year the top 2 seeds have been giving byes at both tournaments
Hopefully Lena should be able to pick up title number 16 this week.
A part of me want so see her beat Oudin along the way as well
"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"
