The Charleston tourney website (http://www.familycirclecup.com/pages/articles/20090123164434.html) declares they have now added Elena Dementieva. I presume this means she is next in, or will receive a wild card (no word yet from the EntryListLords).

You got a bad rep for making an untrue statement that I was posting "random photos" merely as an excuse to post links to my website (which is probably the single most useful resource for WTA fans anywhere, so no excuse should be required). This was probably not malicious, but it is damaging.

I posted the full main draw entry list (post #24) (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=15127113&postcount=24), had a little joking exchange with Dutchie Girl, and then posted that Elena Dementieva had been added to the draw (post #41) (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=15227535&postcount=41). With the posts, I go to the trouble to add nice photos of good girls that normal people would find pleasant. The links to my tourney pages are perfectly legitimate references to pages most folks reading these posts would like to see.

Do you complain when Jorn includes in every post:

"Please visit my Caroline websites!

Caroline Wozniacki Result page (http://www.carolinewozniacki.net/)
New Caroline Wozniacki tennis Forums (http://carowozniackiforum.net/forum/)"?

(By the way, Jorn posts much useful info here, and I fully approve of his linking to his pages--many other people posting here also link to their pages; if they are making good posts, there is nothing wrong with that.)

Actually, surprised not to see Elena D. on original list, given that there was an interview with Tarpischev in mid-February where he said that she won't play Fed Cup semifinals because she is committed to 4 tournaments in United States. There are only four tournaments in US this time of year, so the intention to play Charleston was there back then already.

If it's worthwhile info, i say post away. If i had a nickel for every useless "good luck to so-and-so" message posted on this forum, Bill Gates would be mowing my lawn. And yet nobody ever complains about that stuff.

That would be great, but I guess not fer. Because there are some hgood American players wich deserve WC. But QWC would be just fine for Miki! :lol:
