Pretty impressive stuff :)

CONFIRMED
* Kim Clijsters
* Amélie Mauresmo
* Venus Williams
* Serena Williams
* Nadia Petrova

WILD CARDS
* Michaella Krajicek
* Kirsten Flipkens

NOT YET OFFICIAL
* Ana Ivanovic
* Karolina Sprem

If Venus wins the tournament she'll win it for the third time in five years, which means she'll be the owner of the diamond racket. But I'm quite curious what will happen if she'll have to play her sister in the final. Diamonds are a girls best friend aren't they? ;)

Antwerp has every right to become a Tier I, considering it's got one of the strongest fields of all non-Grand Slam events every year.

It always has a good line-up!

I am sensing a Clijsters vs Venus final! One would want to win in front of her home fans, one would want to win the diamonds. It should, if it happens, be a very interesting match!

Sprem also will come, though not officially communicated. She has put Antwerp on her calender at her website (http://www.karolina-sprem.com/)

Hopefully she can get back to her old form and reach the semi-finals as she did in 2004.

Serena will take out some of the opposition, then surender tamely to big sis, so that the racquet can go into the family bank vault.

still hoping that Justine Henin will play again in Antwerp... It's a pity that the quarrel between Justine and tournament director Bob Verbeeck prevents her from playing in her own country :sad:

I'm pretty sure Serena will let Venus wins the final if they face each other! :lol:

I hope I'll see Ana there! Cool she comes! There's also another nice thing on the Proximus Diamond Games site:

The organization tries to book Mary Pierce, Elena Dementieva and Nathaly Dechy in the coming weeks.

Would be great if that happened!

And if Kim will become number one on her first match, every visitor gets a bottle of champagne.

Let's hope we'll have a great tournament in 2006!
