Radwanska could have played then as she was only an alternate in YEC.

Not only an alternate, Agniezska played (and won) a match, not sure if she could have played? If so I will update.

Interesting to know. I still think the tournament/and coverage would be better if it was the week before the YEC. It's like the Bowl game that gets played in Canada after the other BCS games.

From WTA rulebook:

The final two (2)
Alternates in the Sony Ericsson Championships are eligible to play
the International Tournament of Champions, even if they participate
in matches in the Sony Ericsson Championships.

MaKiri would have been playing for a chance to collect a million dollars. One year too early.
