Good luck to the girls!

I hope that Mi-ra gets MD wildcard and So-Jung Kim, Ye-Ra Lee and Eun-Jeong Lee get Qualy wildcards. The sponsor of this tourney has four their own players including Jin-Hee Kim, Kyung-Mi Chang, So-Jung Kim and Ye-Ra Lee. I would hate to see they just give away the wild cards to JH Kim or Chang in the order of age rather than the players above.

I'm dreaming Maria Sharapova vs Mi-Ra Jeon final. Hopefully, it will come true.

There are some reasons for Maria S. playing here.

She's born in Siberia where close to Korea relatively and she said she likes Korean culture and food and wanted to visit Korea someday. I heard that people in Siberia are very fond of Korean food, especially 'Choco Pie' and 'Spicy Ramyun (kind of fried noodle)'.
And the sponsor of the tourney invited Maria long before her victory in Wimbledon and she was very positive then. And the sponsor is rich enough for good appearance $.
And Korean sports market is one of the biggest in the world, so her management would love to expose her in that market.
The last but not least, there are soooo many fans of her. Almost every Koreans now know her, especially guys. When she won the Wimbledon, she was on every headline of the Korean newspapers which had been focused on golf,soccer and baseball.

For your information, the tournament week is in the biggest holidays in Korea this year. It's a kind of 'Thanks giving day' in Western countries based on the Korean Lunar calendar. The 20 million people's metropolis would be almost vacant in that week for people to go their hometown. So, no traffic inside Seoul, but you can't go anywhere outside Seoul via car, ship or airplane.
Korea had been the 2nd largest automobile market in Asia until 2002 over China,India and Australlia with their small land area. So you can imagine how crowded with cars in every highway outside Seoul.

But only for the tournaments, it's the best time. Every hotel room in Seoul would be vacant so there should be big discount, and you could select the seat in the Olympic tennis stadium as you wish.
Good luck.

Because she was offered a significant some of money to play here so she has decided to, instead of playing in the top tourneys to help her ranking, play where she is offered the most money. That tells you something about her character.

She plays for money, fame and endorsement deals...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
