Yes. Sadly, Amelia Island lost its sponsor, Bausch & Lomb, and MPS Group decided to movie the tournament down the coast to the Sawgrass Country Club at Ponte Vedra. I'm going, but it won't be the same. Amelia Island was the most beautiful place for tennis, and had the most beautiful center court I've ever seen.

I wish there were more HarTru tourneys...the shoes scraping across the gravel surface makes the coolest sound.

Guys, I think Aravane Rezai may play here. I don't have any hard evidence, but she hung around Miami after losing to Pavlychenkova. I saw her Friday talking with a friend inside the entrance and she was out practicing at the SEO on Saturday afternoon (see my pics thread in GM). I dunno why she would hang around in Miami practicing if she wasn't playing again in the US, soon, before heading to Europe. Again, no hard evidence, just a hunch.

With this schedule, Wozniacki looks to crash and burn somewhere. I don't think she's missed a single week this entire year. That's crazy!
Caro had 2-3 weeks with Rest and training before IW, and one week rest before she start playing in Miami, but her clay season are tough, if she don't withdraw from this tournament.

Is Domi actually playing here? She's now listed on the tournament website's player list. :shrug:

The tourney website entry list (http://www.mpsgroupchamps.net/pages/comp/play.htm) now includes Dominika Cibulkova, Daniela Hantuchova, and Marion Bartoli, none of whom were originally listed there. TheBoiledEgg on March 27 said there have been no withdrawals; since then Maria Kirilenko has withdrawn (this is, of course, Spiceboy's fault :lol:).

The tourney website list includes 25 players, there should be only 24 (leaving 4 wild cards and 4 qualifiers). Also, the tourney website list does not include Elena Vesnina, who apparently has not withdrawn, or Sybille Bammer, whom TBE said (Mar 27) is still on the list but likely to withdraw.

Dominika, Daniela and Marion are probably in, but whether they are direct ins or WCs will depend upon how many spots are opened up by players withdrawing this week.

I know, but that's what the tournament blog is reporting. Apparently she couldn't get a MD wildcard so accepted one for qualifying.

MPS couldnt give her a MD WC because Cibulkova and Hantuchova were already down as their designated marquee players, so if you like, they get first refusal.

Did Bammer already withdraw?

According to laola1.at she is back at home and she won't play here. She's also not sure to play at Charleston.
She has still problems with her shoulder and neck. :sad:
