And here is the article which says she is in <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

Davenport, Hingis Head Top Field in Pan Pacific<br />TOKYO (Reuters) - World number one Lindsay Davenport (news - profile - photos) and three-time champion Martina Hingis (news - profile - photos) are scheduled to head a top-class singles draw at next year's Toray Pan Pacific Open, tournament organizers said Wednesday.

Serena Williams (news - web sites) and Jelena Dokic, who won the Toyota Princess Cup in Tokyo in October, have also entered the first-tier event which gets under way on January 29 at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium and offers a total purse of $1.22 million.

Russian Anna Kournikova (news - profile - photos), who is making her way back from injury, has been granted a wild card after dropping to number 71 in the world rankings, organizers confirmed.

Davenport defeated Hingis in last year's final and the Californian finished the year in style by recapturing the women's number one ranking from Jennifer Capriati (news - profile - photos) late in the season.

<br />I hope she is in...<br />I'm nervous now!!!!! <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

Don't worry bernardo, Serena knows what's best for ehrself. If she thinks that playing is good for her, she'll do it. Let's trust her decision to play or not. I think she'll play though, she is really intend on improving her ranking. She has committed to so many events!! <img src="eek.gif" border="0">
