Welcome to Gold Cost, Australia: host of the Tier III, $170,000 Thalgo Australian Women's Hardcourt tournament. The Thalgo Australian is the first tournament on the VWTT calendar.

Being that this is a new tour, all players are starting from scratch, and will have to work their way up to the top and prove themselves all over again. Will Venus Williams, Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis be vowed the Queens of the tour or will up-and-comers Jelena Dokic and Kim Clijsters or past players like Jana Novotna take over the thrown? These questions will all start to unravel this week, as the VWTT season has has now began. Get ready to roll: it's game, set, match time! Enjoy your stay at Gold Coast, and good luck to all players participating!

serena has to play qualies <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Just to let everyone know, first round singles and doubles results will be posted Tuesday afternoon.

*Also, because Venus and Justine had a bye in the first round, only the unseeded players you chose for your team will be used in deciding round 1. In case of a tiebreaker, I will do a coin toss. This will only be for round one.
