New Haven

Tati is entering late into this event to get some more US Open practice

Golovin, 17, latest to commit to Pilot Pen

Tatiana Golovin is the latest addition to the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament’s women’s playing field.


Golovin, 17, reached the third round of the French Open and upset Venus Williams and Nadia Petrova to advance to the semifinals of the Tier I event in Charleston, S.C. Golovin, currently ranked No. 25, was named the 2004 WTA Newcomer of the Year.

http:// Golovin becomes the 11th top 25 player to commit to the Pilot Pen, but because she missed the entry for direct acceptance into the Pilot Pen, Golovin is not guaranteed a spot in the main draw.

Golovin becomes the No. 2 player on the Pilot Pen’s "next in" list behind top-ranked Lindsay Davenport. If two main draw players withdraw before the start of the Pilot Pen, Golovin would move into the main draw. If not, she would be eligible to receive a wild card into the main draw.

Pilot Pen officials also announced the commitment of No. 26 Ai Sugiyama, which was reported by the Register on Sunday. Sugiyama, who reached the finals at last week’s Tier I San Diego event, becomes the No. 3 player on the "next-in" list.

The Pilot Pen begins with qualifying on Aug. 19. The women’s final is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Aug. 27.

The men’s championship match is set for noon on Aug. 28.

Elena Likhovtseva, who has committed to the Pilot Pen, was named World Team Tennis’ Female Most Valuable Player on Tuesday.

"I didn’t really expect to be an MVP. This is my first (postseason award) in six years," Likhovtseva said.

"It was a lot of fun playing with my team, having their support and the support from my fans at home in Sacramento. It was a good WTT year and I’m looking forward to the playoffs."

Likhovtseva and Male MVP Mark Knowles led the Sacramento Capitals to an 11-3 record and a berth in next month’s WTT playoffs.

Allez Tati. It was a smart choice to enter New Haven. Just hoping that she's not overburnt before US Open.

I don't think she will be. Of course it depends on her results in Rogers Cup and New Haven.

Well a lot depends on number of wildcards and upcoming withdrawals.

Currently there are 3 WCs, but 6 players in need of them:

1. Davenport
2. Kuznetsova
3. Molik
4. Zvonareva
5. Golovin
6. Sugiyama

So she needs two players to withdraw to be sure, but one may do it if they pick her over Vera

I'm hoping Tati would get one. Davenport and Kuznetsova are definately getting one. It's between Tati and Molik, I think.

The field is getting very strong.

looks like zvonareva is not playing for sure and maleeva hasn't played in a while and she's still in the entry list. tati should make it but i'm still a little concerned about other currently injured, top ranked players who might want to play a tournament before the us open and will try to enter new haven.
