Re: Early Entries

Probably Bartoli since she isn't playing the Olympics
And I'm sure some mid-ranked Russians who most likely won't be in London will be here

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Early Entries

and from their website, looks like they're promoting the legends as much as the wta!

oh well, guess it'll give me a chance to watch players that usually don't play here. with the small draw and the time of the year, it's usually the same players that come to stanford.

Re: Early Entries

The direct week after Wimbledon. Can't imagine here and San Diego having legitimate fields. Players would have to travel to the US (and not even the east coast, the west!), play on hardcourts, and then race back to Europe for the Olympics on grass - doesnt make sense.

Re: Early Entries

That's a pretty solid lineup all things considered. Nice to see Vania and Varvara sneak in there.

Re: Early Entries

i'm surprised at the quality of the lineup. thought all the olympics players wouldn't make the long trip.

we'll see if the players will still want to play here after wimbledon.

Re: Early Entries

Guessing San Diego will be very similar (minus Serena who I doubt will play here).

Not a great or bad list. Maybe there will be a couple of late entries from players that didn't do well at Wimbledon and get itchy feet and want to play.
