View Full Version : Who will skip Miami?

Mar 10th, 2006, 07:31 PM
Even though Miami has now been made "mandatory" by the powers that be, there will undoubtedbly be a few players who skip the tournament anyway. Injured? Tired? Hate Miami? Just wanna buck the system? Whatever the reason, who do you think will skip Miami?

If someone skips it will be Serena I think. Or possibly Venus.

Mary P

no one hopefully.

Lindsay won't come...

Mar 10th, 2006, 08:18 PM
Lindsay's going. She's mentioned many times that she's playing. I would be very surprised if she didn't.

Mar 10th, 2006, 08:21 PM
I'm not taking it as a given that any of the Americans on that list are playing.

I'm smelling an injury from Justine. She wants to get down to business on clay and this would just wear her out. I don't think WTA edicts work well on her, and this isn't a tournament that she appears to like, unlike Venus and Serena, who I don't think react well to edicts either, but it's an easy tournament near home that they like.

I hope that Mary will play but I doubt it

They may all show up, but there will at least one tanked match... :tape:

Mar 10th, 2006, 09:00 PM
Elena Bovina

Carmen Mairena

Hopefully Kim :tape: That would mean she's not injured anymore... :tape:

Mar 10th, 2006, 09:14 PM
I thought Lindsay wasn't playing because she doesn't enjoy the tourni?

Mar 10th, 2006, 09:17 PM
Probably WS, Lindsay and Mary (:sad: )

Mar 10th, 2006, 09:23 PM
All, save Justine.

Mar 10th, 2006, 10:00 PM
I'd say none of them.Maybe Mary will withdraw with this injury. However, Kim, Amelie and WS should all be back and I cannot see anybody from IW -maybe besides Lindsay- skipping it like that. Hope they'll all play at least one match:p

Both Williams Sisters

Mar 12th, 2006, 09:07 PM
Lindsay. I'm going by her comments she made the other day about having to be forced to commit to a certain amount of tournaments.

Mar 12th, 2006, 09:20 PM
Mary probably, she is still injured for now

Mar 12th, 2006, 10:38 PM

Mar 12th, 2006, 11:37 PM
they'll all be there.

Lindsay and Justine if they make they finals of IW
Pierce, possibly Schnyder
I am starting to doubt that Venus and Serena will attend as well...out of this six at least half will not play IMO...which saddens me...

Does serena even make the cutoff now? Isn't she ranked around 60? I wonder if they can give her a wildcard?
