Arrow Tati rocks L.A.!

Kuznetsova, Hantuchova, Golovin Enter Carson

The field for Carson is getting crowded. Svetlana Kuznetsova, Daniela Hantuchova and Tatiana Golovin have all committed to competing in the JPMorgan Chase Open in Carson, California. The trio join Maria Sharapova, Nadia Petrova, Elena Dementieva, Venus Williams and Serena Williams on the entry list for the U.S. Open Series event, scheduled for August 7-13.


If all of those players actually do compete they will form one of the strongest JPMorgan Chase Open fields in recent years.

"These additional players will make this year's field among the strongest ever for Los Angeles' only stop on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour," said tournament director Bill Peterson. "With this outstanding group of players all tuning up for the U.S. Open, our fans are sure in for great tennis action."

Kuznetsova beat top-seeded Amelie Mauresmo 6-1, 6-4, in the Nasdaq-100 Open semifinals before stopping Sharapova, 6-4, 6-3, to capture the Tier I Miami title in April. The 2004 U.S. Open champion advanced to the French Open final in June before bowing to defending champion Justine Henin-Hardenne, 6-4, 6-4. Kuznetsova has advanced to at least the quarterfinals in 11 of the 13 tournaments she's entered this year in posting a 39-12 record.

Hantuchova contested the 2005 Carson final, falling to Kim Clijsters, 6-4, 6-1. Hantuchova advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon this year and has a 21-14 record in singles matches this year.

The 32nd-ranked Golovin was sidelined several weeks after injuring her ankle in the Miami semifinal against Sharapova. Golovin is 1-3 in three tournament appearances since Miami and has compiled a 13-11 record on the season.

Ai Sugiyama, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Shahar Peer (Israel), Shuai Peng, Sania Mirza, Akiko Morigami and Virginia Ruano Pascual have also entered the Carson field. For ticket information, please call (877) AEG-TICKETS (1-877-234-8425) or visit www.jpmorganchaseopen.com.

Withdrawn.

Hopefully it's not injury or anything. I hope she just takes time off to train with Goldfine to fix her fitness. Hope she plays Montreal now. *crosses finger*

why does she make all these late decisions on playing tournaments or not? anyway, i also hope that she is taking the time to work out and this isn't injury related. i would have preferred her playing here rather than montreal, if she enters, since everybody is going to be in montreal.

who is entered in a tournament hardly matters as far as Tati is concerned at this point. that only matters when you can beat Amy Frazier types on a consistent basis.

i'm hopeful that she is taking some time off to train and goldfine is helping he along. i'd think there is a possibility of her entering the candian open since she has played it the last two years, but we probably won't know until the draw comes out thanks to the WTA's new policies.
