So is it round robin as well, meaning every team will play each other... :confused:

Dubs tourney is elimination system...

Since the doubles won't be on tv, and they don't draw fans, they're going to have to re-evaluate whether it's a good financial decision to have them.
But for the 8 players in L.A. for doubles, it's a nice payday.

That's very dumb and boring... They should be ashamed :o If they don't wanna do round robin, why don't they just take 8 teams and take it from the quarters, that would be a little better.

link in singles....the 'best 8 players' get to play. That is why they think it is FAIR. But hell...what an event!

btw, does anyone know why Martina and Svetlana are splitting up? They were a VERY good team! It seems Lindsay and Lisa only lasted a year too!

Does anyone know if Rennae will have a permanent partner in 2004???

Maggie is coming to LA!?
Yee haaaw! Hope I could get to see her play.

Yeah...is Maggie in LA? If not..I wonder who the alternates are.

I like all the teams, but I hope that Vivi/Paola can win here.

pfff
I agree, making it a 4 teams competition is stupid, it's not all about money!!! There are some teams that have been working hard all the year and deserved being there as Maggie and Huber :fiery:

Vivi/Poli :worship: :bowdown: :hearts: :bounce:

Someone above asked about Rennae. She's playing with Carla for at least the first 3 tournaments of the new year. Nothing planned afterwards, but knows!

Actually, I like the four-team draw. I've always thought the year-end championships should really showcase only the very best performers in a certain year. I think the ATP should have limited theirs to four teams, too!

Sorry, who's Carla? :confused:

Liezel must be in LA as reserve, cuz Pam said last night she was hitting with Ai (of course, Pam said Liezel Horn -- Liezel didn't get divorced, did she?)

And yeah, who the heck is Carla?

Carla would be Cara Black. ;) Or, at least that's what I think Karen meant. ;)

Could never spell, and since I know nothing about the player, I guess I have never made a mental note of a her first name. Does she come from North of London? Just kidding :)

I think itīs a very good possibility that Ai teams with Liezel 2004 as she did in the end of 2003.

Cara might team with Rennae permanently as does Elena L with Petrova.

Martina N is to team with Lisa R 2004 to qualify for the Olympics in Athens 2004.

Kuznetsowa might team with another Russian to overtake Elena L and Nadia Petrova.
