Hmmmm... A question..???
I note that a total of SIX are viewing this thread at the current time (7 if you include me).
If Venus and/or Serena.... as well as Jennifer, Monica were competing would it not be likely somthing like 30+ or more???
IW needs to apoligize and BEG these two premier players to return, as well as attract more top players.
This tournament was once considered the "fifth slam" after Miami and the four acknowledged slams. It might as well be a tier II for the women now.
(Hmmm... The money is good though).
