I think everyone in sport can be inspired by what Venus has done and how she's come back and winning championships and just doing so well. So I have been utterly completely inspired by that. I just have no words for it. There is no greater champion in my eyes.
I am not 100% sure what the format is because some say its Round Robin and some say its elimination.
The favourites for who makes it are:
chingching, is hsieh really a favourite, considering her ranking?
last year not even gajdosova in the 30's made the cut off
Sha has a chance. I had heard from someone that there would be 10 Players this year but that could be wrong. Also, Hsieh is on the rise and shows that can do damage (Flavia almost beat Angie and Hsieh led by a set and 4*-3. Also, this year will be weaker because the players who have won WTA titles like Babos, Bertens, Arruabarena-Vecina and Hsieh herself are quite lowly ranked, and Ivanovic seems intent on playing Fed Cup
