Serena, Venus highlight world class field for Toronto, early list features 7 out of top 10 players in the world

Tennis Canada announced today its initial Player Commitment List for the 2003 Rogers AT&T Cup. The Player Commitment List showcases a world-class field featuring World #1 and 2001 Rogers AT&T Cup Champion, Serena Williams along with her sister and World #2 Venus Williams. This marks the first time the Williams' sisters will both participate in the singles draw at the Canadian event.

Also competing is four-time Rogers AT&T Cup champion Monica Seles, current World #3 Kim Clijsters of Belgium and American superstar Jennifer Capriati. Rising young stars Anastasia Myskina of Russia (#10) and Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova (#9) will be making their third appearances in Canada this summer.

"This is exciting news for our Canadian tennis fans. Every year our fans and sponsors are treated to a world-class field. To have both Venus and Serena commit to the Rogers AT&T Cup demonstrates the importance of this event to the players and the WTA Tour. This will be a special way to celebrate our final year at this facility", said Stacey Allaster Tournament Director (Toronto), Vice-President, Tennis Canada.

Other players scheduled to compete this summer include Russia's Anna Kournikova and four-time participant Jelena Dokic. 2002 defending champion Amélie Mauresmo will also return to Canada to defend her title. The French star upset Jennifer Capriati in last year's Final played in Montreal.

If you think TIERII's are easier then TIER1's u don't follow tennis.

Alot and many TEIRII's are tougher than TEIR1's.

Venus still maked it to the FINAL in the last (I dont know how many grandslams). So what does that make those who didn't do that.

HA HA HA .. say what you want about Vee and Tier2's but it is also her that is going deep in many tourneys and slams.

Venus go on gurl, you're in a great postion.. one more slam and you can shoot for that #1 spot. Especially with few tourneys that you're playing.. and the way it looks right now.. you're looking good for 2004.

I hope that Venus comes. If Venus comes I'll maybe go up and see her first match if I can. If not i'm just going the Monday.

Pfff... screw the Williams'... Ms. Bovina better be there, and I better be following her for days, or I'm gonna be a sad panda.

Apr 18th, 2003, 08:49 PM
haha. thanks leena. i like to give your avatar a backhand across the face...but yeah bovina should be there. i wanna see her play and hear her crazy grunting.

I can't see Vee playing here and Pilot Pen, so I think there is a strong possibility that she will withdraw, because there is no way she is missing Pilot Pen...
