Its going to be sad im for other people like me not to see players like Maleeva, Schett, Silvia and other players who have thrown in the towel but have played in the last few years in Paris. At least Open Gaz has commitments from all the top French Players expect Mary :worship: :kiss: and Kim Clijsters and several other top 10 players. But no word from Serena who played last year only exiting when she caught the gastro :mad: Nonetheless 4 players in the top 10 I think so its going to be great! :) the nice thing about Open Gaz is you can see new players you havent noticed before. But they dont replace girls like Maggie and Silvia :) I liked Yakimova same time last year and I think shes made progress. Also it should be interesting to see if Alisé Cornet can get through the qualies. Perhaps its not her surface but maybe she gets to practice on it?
