I don't know if this has been posted before but the list is on the website

4 of the top 10: Davenport, Venus, Amelie, and Myskina
21 of the top 30, only others missing outside the top 10 are Sugiyama, Martinez, and Seles.

The field has good depth but it's still weak at the top for a tier 1

it's traditionally a weak Tier I anyways,
but if Amelie passes Venus in ranking after US Open,
it'll be one interesting draw....:)

A couple of the top players usually pull out at the last minute because of injuries or they are tired from the long season. I wouldn't count on seeing Venus and Lindsay there this year.

Udachi Russina's! :bounce:

Venus played last year, so did Lindsay. Venus has no reason to be tired since she has only played 6 tournaments this year.

Maggie win it again! I wish Justine would play here....a top 5 player should play all or 8-9 of the Tier I's every year

Ai is probably playing the Tier III Japan Open which is the same week.

I wonder why Justine has never played here before?

Justine played in Moscow 2001 and lost in 2nd round to Barbara Schett after a BYE in 1st round. She lost 7-5 6-7(6) 2-6 :sad:
I wish Justine will joins this field :D

Anna will be a WC for sure if she is fit which isn't looking too good right now

I hope a Russian girl will win this event for her country.....

Will Sharapova play there?

TheBoiledEgg
Aug 7th, 2003, 03:27 PM
Maria Sharapova will be playing Japan Open the same week (very disappointing)
must be an IMG decision as Kremlin Cup is under the Octagon Flag

I'm not expecting Anna to play this year. She's slowly fading away as the signs seem to suggest. I hope I'm wrong though.
