I never understand why some events don't post the draws until Sunday. The fans (and players I'm sure) want to know who's playing who sooner than 1 day before the event starts.

The tournament website is horrible.

The Home Depot Center website seems slightly (emphasis on SLIGHTLY) more useful:
http://www.homedepotcenter.com/festival_detail.php?festival_id=23

I'll be checking there for the draw.

Jul 21st, 2008, 01:23 AM
oh dear uranium -_- uhm... *speechless-am*

the only reasonable thing for serena is to use her bye privilege to see if she's ready to play from the 2nd round on or to withdraw in the first place. plus the draw has been done already anyway so if there is any alteration to it it could be corrected after its been released. about the Qually thingie... often in draws you'll just find Q in there, if quallies meet maindraw days. so....

all in all...

GIVE US THE DRAW !!!

Singles MD sign-in was about 20 hours ago. If she didn't sign in, she would not be considered for a WC, let alone direct acceptance.

I remember a tournament waiting to see a player stays in the tournament before making the draw, don't remember what though.

even if she didnt ... the fact remains that l.a. needs a player like serena in the draw. gs champion, local matadora, used for ads for this tourna. they'd be stupid to dump her like that even if it is unfair to other players. plus... she has a bye so waiting to see till next week is the most intelligent option from her point of view.

It doesn't matter if they want her or not or will die if they don't have her. If she did not sign in she CAN NOT be placed in the draw.

They said she signed in.

Ok, hehe :P I still think she went with the bye option even if she's doubting that she'll play. I mean this is L.A., so...

My bet is that it will be out around 8:00 here.


This is really no surprise from the Carson event....just typical. It is not a particularly fan friendly event...unless you are planning on buying a luxury ticket package, then they love you. Almost everyday now I'm getting messages on my phone: "Hey tennis fans, it's Serena Williams. Please give this tournament all of your money because they are really pathetic."

Serena has arrived in Los Angeles. She was picked up from the airport at midnight last night. She has not signed in, but her coach has, which I find interresting. Jelena has not signed in either. The draw is complete, I don't understand why they haven't posted it.

I will call and find out for you about Shuai.

Serena will likely withdraw before her match on Wednesday. I am hoping she plays but I want her to be healthy, too. If withdrawing helps her heal, then that's what I want. I wonder how serious the injury is. The MRI results should be in.
