This is just one small tournament on its first year, give it a chance I'm sure if everyone does their share it should be good.

This is true. I'll keep that in mind :D

No, it is designed to be a 16 player draw. Think about it. You have New Haven and US Open qualies during the same week. That means that the only players who would enter this tournament are going to be ranked between c. 40 and 90. 32/50 eligible players is a little bit unrealistic, especially since some will play New Haven qualies, disqualifying them from entering this tournament.

There are 3 tournements the week before the Australian Open, so I don't see the problem to have 2 tournements with 32 players in it before the US Open.

This tournement pretty much looks like a joke. Why not just doing an exhibition with 8 players?

Because its not a joke, its a real tournament for players to not go to a qualifying Tier I instead of sit it out for a whole week.

GIVE IT A CHANCE PEOPLE, who knows you might be pleasantly surprised.

Well, New Haven qualies should only have 32 players, not 48.

And if you can have two Tier 3s the week before the French, you can have a Tier 2 (which will get stronger players) and a lower tier event the week before the USO.

So Kirsten will get the wildcard. Well, I presume at least second round, though I wouldn't be surprised if she wins it. Good luck Kirsten. :)

i doubt they planned to give a bye to only one player. Probly somebody withdrew and since there were no qualies there was nobody to fill the empty spot...

Stevenson could have played...oh yeah...they figured Elena would have worked harder to advance with a BYE ;)

It has to be the biggest joke ever.

Even worst, the US Open qualies (which are infinitely more interesting than "that") are at the same time and in the same city.

Oh well, at least a couple of players have an opportunity to get $$$ and points. ;)
