Tsvetana Pironkova is also named on an article in Turkish at the tourney website (http://www.istanbulcup.com/TR_NewsDetail.aspx?NId=1907). Unfortunately they still have not posted a full player list.

Ayda Uluç, Serena Williams’ın ardından turnuvanın 2 numaralı isminin İtalyan raket Francesca Schiavone olduğunu belirtti. TTF Başkanı, böylece izleyicilerin bu yıl Avustralya Açık ve Wimbledon’ı kazanan Williams ise Fransa Açık şampiyonu Schiavone’yi aynı turnuvada izleyebileceklerini ifade etti.
İstanbul Cup Tenis Turnuvası’nda Serena Williams ve Francesca Schiavone dışında genç Rus yetenek Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Wimbledon çiftler şampiyonu Kazak Yaroslava Shvedova, Wimbledon’da tekler yarı finali oynayarak tarih yazan genç raketler Tsvetana Pironkova ve Petra Kvitova da İstanbul’da ilgi çekecek isimler olacak.

Google machine translation:
Uluç month, Serena Williams, the tournament's second number after the name of Italian Francesca Schiavone in the racket, he said. TTF, the President of the Australian Open and Wimbledon this year so that the audience, Williams won the French Open champion said Schiavone'yi can watch the tournament.

What is the chance of Serena Williams really playing here?
She'll probably play, unless her knee really starts hurting again. Serena ususally pulls out of tourneys one or two weeks after winning a big one, but this is 4 weeks. And the appearance money is likely quite lucrative; they have had Venus, Sharapova, Dementieva before.

I can't quote the rule offhand, but for many years tourney appearance fees have been technically prohibited. However, agents and tourneys get around this by arranging for the player to be paid for offcourt appearances on behalf of some sponsor(s), not for playing in the tourney.

Venus won there in 2004, and went back again in 2007, so she might have told Serena its an OK place to play.

iGOAT

The appearance fees were legalized this year, the WTA felt that as long as the players were showing up for mandatories, they could take as much as they wanted for other tournaments I guess.

Thanks, I had forgotten that. They almost never talk about it; strange that they don't now that its legal.

I usually mostly ignore WTT, and only just noticed that Serena pulled out of her WTT matches with an unspecified foot injury. So, if it is serioue, perhaps she won't play Istanbul after all.

Serena posts a lot a Twitter almost every day, but she usually just talks about partying.

International Tournaments:
If the WTA does not use the first Top 20 Wild Card and there is no Top 20 Player requesting the first Top 20 Wild Card, it may be awarded by the Tournament to any player.

Premier tournaments do not get 3rd wild-card.

Pemra will lose his points this year imo. Last year he defeats Rus, but her form this year :help: She couldn't win even 10k futures. Cagla has very very good chance for taking a win here, maybe a few win with a lucky draw. Who knows? :)

Senoglu and Petkovic are playing doubles together

Poor Ipek.

"So I lost my doubles today. I'm not the typical doubles player to say the least. To be honest I really don't know how to play doubles at all. I have the strokes I guess, I can volley, I serve well and I can play quite fast when I want (fast to the fence is my favorite one) but I cross when no normal human being would cross and I stand and watch the ball when I really should have crossed. I don't know where I stand and I definitely don't know where to run. Yeah, doubles is an art for itself and I never was an artist nor will I become one."
lthough I cannot add anything for winning a doubles match, some of the poor players I played with are assured of having double the fun in a match (makes sense to me, having double the fun in a doubles match). You know how people joke and try to be funny to hide their insecurities? Right here! And you know how players laugh and act as if they don't care losing a match to make it less disappointing? Right here! I really hate losing, especially doubles, because if you're bad at something doesn't really mean you have to lose at it, does it? I don't know but I definitely know I have to get some practice lessons in doubles, any volunteers?"
