They are "official" according to the commitments and rankings.

They are not "official" until the draw comes out.

They use the rankings right after Sydney. Aus. Open points don't count.

Why is this draw so weak compared to other tier 1's?

The draw is weak because the best players arenīt used to play a week after a Grand Slam. Itīs not common to have a Tier 1 or an important tournament just after a Slam. All the ones who need points go. Thatīs the case of Capriati, Dokic, Davenport and Seles.

Martina Hingis, the best ever!!!

The field here usually is weak for a Tier 1. Not this year, though.

The field is weak because:

1. The Williams sisters traditionally do not play here
2. Kim Clijsters has too heavy an Australian schedule to play another week
3. Martina Hingis is currently off the tour injured
4. The name "Lindsay Davenport" does not have the same gravity it did 3 years ago

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
