I'm thinking of singles really. I notice there is a tournament in Cinncinati in the same week as the Olympic tennis and New Haven the week after with, I suspect, quite a few Olympians missing. I don't mean this as an opinio topic, just a list of players based on ranking would be fine.

Zvonareva won't go playing the Olympic singles and Kirilenko won't play either

I don't think Marion is going so if that's true then she's the best player not going. :)

chaky has decided not to play, she was offered her spot she earned but turned it down, thus safina was the next highest ranked russian and got the 4th place.
chaky's mother said she mentaly is not in a place to compete at the olympics and needs to concentrate on sorting her tennis out.
its sad but could be good for chaky she realy dosen't need the pressure ontop of all the ranking points she has to defend!

The ATP Cincinnatti is played at a different time then the WTA version. Although there are plans to make it a combined event in the next few years.

Katarina is not going, nor is Amelie.

Its a shame as you would have thought playing the Olympics is an accomplishment to play in.

Zheng is going. She's using her protected ranking.

My vote goes to Tamarine Tanasugarn deserved a WC over a Morita or Chan, especially as those two are both already going in doubles anyway.
