I don't know but she will be making at least USD 17,500 this week for qualifying at the Sanex doubles Championships.

So I don't pity her .

And you can check her website. She said she would post her 2003 schedule in the weeks to come.

Yes, it is more than twice as much as what the winner of the Volvo Open at Pattaya will make .

Janet has made $135,000 so far this year (excluding the end of the year "bonus" from the doubles Championships). This puts her in #77 position in terms of prize money .

Out of which $54,000 in singles and the rest between doubles and mixed doubles.

Janet is specialised in doubles. There is no doubt about it, and she knows it .

Her singles earnings are however not that bad, are they . These singles earnings are equivalent to those of the #150 standing in terms of overall earnings.

So her singles year may not have been as good as expected, but not that bad either. The main problem for her now will be the difficulties that her difference in terms of rankings (singles vs. doubles) will create for her next year .

Poor Janet has had a tough year. I'm glad that she's had some doubles success.

That's what makes a lot of players to become a double specialist and play double only, and not single.... Janet just need to really decide what she wants the most... If she wants to improve her single ranking, she needs to play lower tier tournaments, and of course, she needs to sacrifice her double points. Otherwise, if she really wants to improve her double ranking, she will play higher tier tournaments and not playing single....

I heard that Wynne once said that she'll play a lot of lower tier tournaments next year (Tier III, IV, etc). If Janet is still playing double with Wynne, then I guess Janet and Wynne will try to improve their single ranking, and maybe win some more double titles (which is easier in lower tier tournaments).

I guess this is the best solution for both of them

From the local news I've read before I think Janet should be a very nice girl
My biggest hope is that I could see her play in Taipei someday. It might be her last few years in WTA tour but there's still no tennis tournament in Taipei
Go Janet & Wynne in Home Depot Championships !!!
