I thought I would start this thread for following Bethanie in 2009. We can post schedules, news, etc. in here as we find them out. It seems like we don't know much about her plans for 2009 yet, but if anyone knows anything please post about it.

For now we can think on:

She's still on the Indian Wells list. Should I start getting my hopes up?
