It's been known to us canadians that every year since let's say about 2005 players just withdraw just before the tournament starts, especially the big names of the tournament.
Who will it be this year?
top 5 entrants
Ivanovic,Jankovic,Sharapova,Dementieva,V.Williams
Will we have another withdrawal cup where we have to rely on less than known names in Canada.

Hi :) You know, I may be in a minority here....but I couldn't care less if the big names withdrew ;) Do I really need to sit through a Sharapova match considering the fact that I see most of her matches on tv ?!?? I much prefer to go see lesser ranked players that I rarely see play.

By the way, I'm starting to get excited :) Less than two weeks before the Cup starts :D

I hope not. For a tournament to have lasting value, thry need top players. Although it's really fun to go watch these no namers the first few days, we dont need no names dominating the latter parts of the draw.:o

Really getting excited to go see the ladies this year. I've been to the Montreal event ever year since 2003, just last year I skipped it because I didn't have the time.
