it's starts on 27th October the week before the tour championships, as for players- Serena has officially committed to play....(this was before the operation)

Here's the website for the Advanta Championships: http://www.advantachampionships.com/index.htm

Serena's the only one the site mentions so far although there are the standard photos in the gallery. --- Thought this bit was kinda funny. Kournikova made an appearance in Philly to play Team Tennis a few weeks ago and was asked about returning to play in the Advanta:

Asked if she will compete in the return of the Advanta Championships this October at Villanova University - which Kournikova didn't know was returning to the Philadelphia area - the two-time Australian Open women's doubles champion replied hesitantly.
"Sure," she responded, adding that she would play providing she is healthy to compete. "It [the Pavilion at Villanova] is a cute place and the fans are right up close."

I bought my tix for the Semis and Finals only, so I'll see you there, regardless of who's playing. Serena was scheduled to play but I don't think she will make it...
