04 : Capraiti don't even come, replaced by Chanda

05 : Mauremo replaced by Zvonareva, Vaidisova did come but sick so she only plays a little bit doubles. Serena did come as well but play doubles only.

I don't think they will boot anyone.I read that they are planning to change the format to accomodate Hingis.Not sure how exactly they'll manage that. :confused:

Nor do I.

With this type of roster who would want
to denie anyone of them for Hingis after
the fact.

The RR format I like the most and don't see how
they would change it even if it were done like
a regular tournament.

If Hingis wants to join after the fact and play
RR I think they may ask Jie to just play doubles
and let Hingis play in the singles.

Though kinda messed-up for someone to just
waltz in after the fact.

Interesting to see what they come-up with.

Wait wait.....hang on one second....why is everyone talking like Hingis is ALREADY confirmed for HK? Is she? Did I miss something?

Serena Williams/Venus Williams vs. Kim Clijsters/Mirza

Serena Williams vs. Elena Dementieva

Kim Clijsters vs. Jie Zheng

Venus vs. Nicole or Mirza

Lindsay vs. Nicole or Mirza

Those are the match ups which have been confirmed!

Why do you even complete here - woudnt it be better if they competed in a WTA tour event then theyll get pionts for there effort :confused:

santhuruu
Dec 6th, 2005, 05:37 AM
Maybe the players want to take a relax start, and they don't want to feel pressure or something like that. The players also maybe want to do there off court things. And I think it is a perfect tournament for the players

Nicjac
Dec 6th, 2005, 07:27 AM

Love it for shopping too...were actually spending xmas this year there...going back home for new year's...and then i fly back to hk for the exhibition! im so excited!....have you been to the previous years' exhibitions? I wanna know what the atmosphere and competition are like...i hope it's more competitive than your usual exhibition...

bis2806
Dec 14th, 2005, 08:52 AM
I think it's going to be kind of intense and HK is a city that attracts people from all sorts of backgrounds, so it should be fun. I'm returning to the states on the 11th Jan after this exhibition and more shopping (in both HK and Singapore).

bis2806
Dec 14th, 2005, 08:54 AM
Oh and are you from the States? Because it kind of makes no sense for you to fly from HK to the other side of the world and back there again in such a short period of time.

I have no clue how much they are getting played to play this event? But most of the time, no one from exhibition tournaments like this one in Hong Kong and in Charleroi never tell things about this.

Can someone in Hong Kong PLEASE get me one tennis clinic ticket. For your information, the tickets are free. You can pick them up in these locations stated in the following website: http://www.watsonswaterchallenge.com/eng/tour/clinic.htm

I will even pay for it if you want. Please PM me - I really want to get hold of this ticket.

dementieva/Zhen won't probably come to play because of the aces davenport and vaidisova will hit in every game

Pengwin

dementieva/Zhen won't probably come to play because of the aces davenport and vaidisova will hit in every game

I have a feeling LenaD has beefed up her serve to a 126mph average and serve 30 aces per match :rolls:

It won't be so strange when they kick the other girls' skinny butts...(except Lindsay of course) :lol:

I predict a Venus victory (she seems to perform well at exhibitions).

On a side note: I know I'm new here, but I want to get this out. You don't hear people cracking the same jokes about Kim, Justine and Capriati...who have all recently struggled with injuries. I could just as easily say...What? One of the girls from Belgum hasn't withdrawn from the Aussie Open yet?

I could just as easily say...What? One of the girls from Belgum hasn't withdrawn from the Aussie Open yet? Thanks for posting that. They don't withdraw more than anybdy else. I did an entie thread on this once. however, to be fair, they withdraw LATER than most players. Of course, the tournament directors don't complain too much about it because it means they can use them to sell tickets that much longer.

Jan 1st, 2006, 11:24 PM
I'm so happy that this tournament is giving Hong Kong so much exposure. It really is a fantastic city and an amazing place filled with a renewed sence of identity and culture. It was not always like this in Hong Kong, as we have really struggled with our British/Chinese identity for so long. But I'm just so excited to see people posting up pictures of Hong kong and to know that people are going there and experiencing the city for themselves. For those who are going and have not been there before, might I recommend that when you have spare time, to go up to the mountains. The view from there is absolutely stunning, and it's a tourist attraction so buses go up there. Also, if you want to party, we have a very famous street called "Lan Gwai Fang" where it's mainly just pubs all over the place and tourist and locals alike gather there to party the night away. If you're looking for a nice sophisticated place to go shopping, drinking and listenign to music, Pacific Place is a fantastic plaza. And the best part of it all is that you can just take the MTR and you're there. I really hope that everyone who goes has a great time in HK.

Andy T
Jan 3rd, 2006, 10:01 PM
- from what I could see just surfing on the net for a while, the event has been going on since 99 at least.

1999 ?
2000 Capriati bt Hingis 76 (3) 46 63
2001 Dokic beat Kournikova 76 (3) 63
2002 ?
2003 Seles beat (?)
2004 ?
2005 Dementieva bt V Williams 63 62

Can anyone fill in the gaps?

Jan 3rd, 2006, 10:57 PM

I think Hong Kong is 12 hours ahead of the US, so whatever time the matches are listed at, just make it am instead of pm and vice versa. :) So Serena vs. Elena is at 6:30 pm Hong Kong time, meaning 6:30 am EST (and also meaning it's in 7 1/2 hours ;)).
