LI Na's not here but at least most Chinese are .

It nearly looks like a Japanese - Chinese tournament.

I wonder why there are so many Japanese players .

Good also to see some Thai players coming .

This is ridiculous!!!

Only 2 aussies, Monique Adamzcak and Lauren Cheung!

This is one of the cheapest, most economical places for Aussies to fly to yet no players want to go to pick up some of the easiest $25K tournament points they can get as the field is very weak here!

I can't understand this! Kristen van elden, Sam Stosur, Annabel Ellwood, Jaslyn Hewitt, Michelle Summerside, should all be here!

The rankings are certainly lower than last year but the field is not as weak as it seems . The rankings do not reflect the level of the players as far as China is concerned and the Fed Cup in Guang Zhou earlier this month proved it with China crushing all their opponents , including players around the 100 spot.

I agree though it's a pity that not more players are coming from Australia.

I see that Shelley (NZL) is coming one more time here and some players are coming back for the 3rd year in a row. Not only is the place cheap but fun too. I have heard only positive feedback from players I talked to about this tourney. They really enjoy it.

Maybe the late publication of this event in the ITF tournaments schedule is the reason why there are not more Australian players .

Hello Jiro ,

thanks for forwarding information to them. As I said, it is great to have these Thai players here .

I'll do my best to support them. And I should be able to take some pics of them too . I am certain you will also have some message to forward to them, won't you . I think I'll wish them luck on your behalf .

Nope, but you can ask me if you are looking for some information during the tournament .

Luke, could you please remove Shelley in the list above? It keeps reminding me that she has withdrawn for Dinan .

Well AUsboy, looks like we have no-one in the draw now

Both Monique and Lauren withdrew. I see heaps of Aussies in the Seoul commitments, so thats something at least
