No pass R2?
They wont even pass the r1
But also at the name says is pre-qualy none of these players will play the main draw all these are fighting for a WC for the qualifying draw. The main draw Wc's have already been given.
They haven't attract any top 20 because as you said is pointless a clay tournament before Indian Wells.
Still they have been able to bring good players.
in 2001 Dementieva, Coetzer, Farina-Elia, Testud, Suarez...
2002 Dementieva, Coetzer, Martinez, Sanchez-Vicario, Kournikova, Suarez...
and in 2003 Dementieva (#18 this week)
, Suarez, Srebotnik...
Probably this year is weaker in names but stronger as the cuttoff was a bit higher than previous years.
Anyways.. Vamos Erika win your match so you can play qualies
