I guess she needs a tournament to play since the actual WTA season will be done for the year by the start of this tournament:tape: :lol:

This is absolutely insane. She's already played 29 weeks this year:rolleyes:

Its not that mad when you think about it. She lives[b] in Scottsdale which [b]isnt that far from Tucson, both in Arizona so its not really travelling to another tournament

and why not.......probably a chance to get more points and more practise and maybe give herself a chance to end the year in the Top20.

She was badly injured in Moscow, maybe she just wants some practice to test that ankle. Give her a break please!

I don't think she can earn a Top 20 spot there...

Perhaps Anna-Lena committed to this tournament earlier in the year and didn't want to disappoint the organizers.:rolleyes: That should be commended, not criticized.

Besides, as someone said, it's not like she has to fly half-way around the world to play. It's practically in her own backyard.

Maria S. is going to Japan to play a series of exhibitions in December. She's being paid a ton of money but the girl needs to REST. Her father is working her like a mule.:mad: It reminds me of what Jen Cap's daddy did to her and we know how that turned out.:fiery:

Even worse, because she played an $50K ITF event in Bergamo (and lost in the second round :tape: )

Yep, she lost to Bychkova 7-6 6-1. Bychkova ended up runner up in that tournament to none other than Michaella Krajeck!

good luck baby girl........ i think its a really smart move to test the ankle out and 75k is basically as strong as a Tier V so its not that crazy
