What a field! I wonder if they will all play? Plus JHH and Amelie?

That is a good field for a Tier II event - and one which straight comes after Miami too.

Almost Tier I status what with both Williams, Davenport and the Russians. Should be a good tournament with interesting QF match-ups. :)

Amelia Island usually has one of the strongest draw of the Tier II tourneys.

That tournament has one of the nicest settings. I love all those trees, especially that big tree that is practically on the Court.
