it seems that Dubai offering USD $2 million for a 28 player MD was still not enough to motivate the top players to play here :sad:

#1 Vika Azarenka WITHDREW, got A 0
#2 Maria Sharapova DID NOT ENTER
#3 Petra Kvitova WITHDREW, got A 0
#8 Vera Zvonareva WITHDREW
#9 Na Li WITHDREW, got A 0
#10 Andrea Petkovic WITHDREW, got A 0
#11 Serena Williams CHOSE Monterrey MM

the money was enough for #7 Marion Bartoli to come and play her 1st round match despite being injured, thus picking up over $10,000 and stay eligable for her share of the bonus pool and not get a 0

and then we are left with #4 Princess Karolina once again taking the role of the top SEED with her BFF #6 Aga Radwanska to take this 470 points ... I don't see anyone preventing them from meeting in the final :dance:

This means that some players are injured, other players didn't enter this event and Wozniacki, without doing anything, is still there.

That means... well, it means nothing.

it tells you most top players were in australia for a month, then some had fed cup duties and chasing points and money in dubai is not worth not being fit and ready for IW/miami.

it also says caro will forever chase points and money and never prioritise tournaments and improving.

Wozniacki has barely played this year. Makes perfect sense. Not much extra travel from Doha, no big surface difference and her draw is already complete crap. If she can´t make the final here, she is in real deep trouble.

you sound as delusional as caro herself. she went from thailand to perth to sydney to melbourne in only 4 weeks.

also whoring points from a premier field being weak wont help her win slams, as we have already seen.

i'm sure petra knows she has work to do to win big on outdoor hardcourts and i'm sure she will be working hard before IW/miami to get her body and game ready for them. especially after a long month in australia.

vika knows she is probably over tennis-ed right now and a couple of weeks rest is very much in order.

aga really shouldn't be here either, and her sloppy play and tight matches this week show that. however she is probably desperate to gain ranking points as she knows a stupidly high ranking for her level of competiton against the best player is on the cards if she plays enough.

she lost friday in doha, she wont be playing her 2nd round (1st round bye) till at least friday at IW. that is 3 full weeks, she could rest and sort out the little bits of her game that are letting her down right now and be fresher and hopefully ready to go deep in IW.

the off season is what 6 or 7 weeks long, that is half an off seasons worth of rest and practice ready to be taken.

i swear half the players have no idea how to peak for the big events and give themself the best chance to do well at them. it is partly the wta fault for throwing money and points at players for tournaments like dubai though.

If you begin the season in Sydney and play the YEC, the offseason is 10 weeks long.
Tennis is not marathon running or cross country skiing where you can somewhat precisely predict your performance after periodic workout and rest routines. Sometimes taking time off gives you ability to improve your fitness, sometimes all it results in is rustiness. It's no wonder that for most girls the start schedule is haphazard and dictated by results/tiredness/injuries more than a plan predetermined during offseason. Que sera, sera.:angel:

So in Radwanska's case 2 weeks might be enough to shine in the spring US season or even 3 weeks wouldn't help at all. No one knows, but passing Dubai means missing the opportunity of gaining $0.5M with rather easy draw.:)

it isn't hard to look at players like serena, venus, henin, kim part 2, graf ect and see that they never over play and they obviously look at the calendar and see gaps to rest and recharge. thats why they all played to 30ish and were/are winning slams into their late 20's, when the likes of caro and aga aren't even winning slams in their early 20's.

if you cant see the lure of easy points and money has lead to a breed of players these days who have no idea when to say no.

you don't have to be a know it all or advisors to spot pitfalls and mistakes others might be making. however you do have to be a bit full of yourself to join a forum and have so few posts and the ones i do see from you are you critising others for having opinions, when you haven't formed one or contributed to the thread yourself. :wavey:

Healthy players want to play. Vika, Serena, Kim, Venus, Li, Petra arent healthy.
Whos healthy enough to play a full week & missing? Maybe Sharapova, who just lost to Kerber after being in Melbourne then Russia.
But almost all the players healthy enough to get thru a tough week ( and when you have matches 4 days in a row, its a tough week) are here
There are good QFs. Woz-Ana, Aga-Sabine, JJ-Sam, Dani-Julia.
Thats a pretty good group for 1 day of matches

they certainly don't help their chances. when li na who is a novice on clay wins the french open you know how wide open it is. yet you get caro playing week in week out leading upto the most open slam for years and years, including playing long matches the week before to win some weak premier. not to mention religiously playing new haven before the us open and fading and looking lifeless in her last 2 semi final losses there. oh and thats without adding in playing copenhagen on hardcourts before wimbledon :help:

aga faded fast in her qtr final with vika, but then she had had a grueling week before in sydney.

you have to give yourself as much chance to be fit, healthy and fresh for a slam. when serena played sydney she didn't win it yet has been a GOAT on the oz surface, just shows her effort levels in sydney and her knowing she is there for a couple of matches not winning the title.

So you think those players are lying about their injuries. Pretty damning and not a shred of evidence. We actually saw these player get their injuries. Anyway Kim and Serena are always injured lately which simply comes about more the older you get.

But first you talk about planning for slams - then you now change your mind and it's IW and Miami. Well::

Last year - Li Na won RG, played Dubai and Doha. Petra won Wimbledon plaing Dubai (not Doha but she played Paris). Caro won IW and played Dubai and Doha. Vika won Miami played Dubai and Doha. And while we are at it when you were witterring on about Serena not trying at Sydney - well we just had the AO 2012 winner winning Sydney the week before.

So much for you knowing more than half the players how to schedule.:lol: Whatever you are trying to say - it's pretty irrelevant to the topic and the actual reason the players listed aren't playing which is they picked up injuries for us to actually even see.

in a sport with millions on the line, slams, fame ect at stake, you find it hard to believe players might exagerate injuries or fake them for their own personal reasons? i mean in sports with less on the line people go to lengths of doping, cheating ect.

i struggle to believe vika's ankle is any worse than in doha. kim has deliberately giving her all in miami by skipping IW even though she has already resumed training.

serena barely ever plays in feb or has won anything in that month in forever.

vika is the 1st player since 2004 to win sydney and oz open, and she was aided by having a cakewalk early rounds to conserve energy.

petra played 5 weeks in a row through australia and fed cup, any excuse was going to be used to skip doha and dubai. her camp were even talking about her missing them before her 'injuries' popped up this last couple of weeks.

this is a cut throat sport, with the wta putting constant pressure on players to play week in week out, i'd be stunned if players didn't exagerate injuries and make them up to avoid tournaments. especially when there is 2 coming up with 1000 points on offer each and them being the biggest tournaments outside of the slams/yec.

I don't think playing the week before a Slam is that much of a hindrance evidenced by the fact that the latest Slam was won by a player who won the warm-up tournament. Similarly , Schiavone at the age of 30's almost made the final of Brussels then ended up making the RG final 2 weeks later. It's not ideal scheduling of course but I don't think it's instrinsically damaging to the players' chances.

Vika was clearly injured at Doha and whether it's got worse or not is irrelevant. It was injured and she needs to get it better. But of course she didn't want to pull out of the final and a chance to win it the title at Doha as a result. Of course if Dubai was a slam - she would almost certainly be playing through her injury. But that's not what we are talking about. It's the fact that it's injured and needs to get it better she pulled out - not this absolute bunk about sceduling and you know best.

Ignoring all your off-topic and irrelevant waffle on doping etc in other sports:

Kim and Serena aren't playing IW. You flip-flop with your arguments all the time. In the previous post - it was all about skipping so they could do well at IW and Miami. So now you think Kim is skipping everything till Miami when she's not really injured to give herself the best chance wimnning Miami short of doping :lol:. And playing nothing between AO and then is the best schedule to win Miami :lol::lol: You crack me up sammy and you say I shouldn't believe everything but believe that claptrap.

fine you believe players are whiter than white and never fake injuries ect. i wont live on cloud 9 and know in a sport any advantage is taken.

FYI kim wont be playing 4 straight weeks for sure this year (hence playing brisbane rather than sydney as it is doubtful she will even play 3 weeks in a row) so one of IW or miami had to go and we know which one kim prefers and suits her game more.

the fact that you cant realise me mentioning doping to show how far people go in sport for an advantage, and that faking an injury is small fry, shows this conversation is over because your comprehension skills aren't worth the effort.

:lol: Bringing up doping in other sports, mentioning Kim at Brisbane and not Sydney or why Kim has to skip everyting until Miami faking an injury in order to avoid playing four tournaments in a row :lol: No I don't think it has much relevance to this thread title of the injuries players had that they are not playing Dubai. You failed to answer the point that all the RG/Wimbleon/IW/Miami winners last year played Doha and Dubai except Petra who played Dubai and Paris.

If we are talking about best preparation for AO - you should look to who actually won AO. And it's my comprehension skills?? Sorry I and many saw Vika injured. You have nothing but speculation and waffle about doping that she's now OK and is not injured. All you have is bleating that I don't understand. :lol::lol:
