Pretty strong field, looking at the fact that Indonesia is actually quiet far to travel to! maybe the uniqueness of combination of white sandy beaches and cultures what makes all the players come to Bali! go Indonesia!!!

I was so shocked the other day when I saw players like Mary Pierce, Francesca Schiavone, Corina Morariou going to this Bali tournament.... wow.. this is must be a huge and exciting tournament on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Bali....

Sep 14th, 2002, 10:25 AM
but will they all be here? some might pull out because there are 2 75k's on hardcourts at the same time, plus Leipzig. I hope not though, coz its a far better field than last year!!

I hope the players will like both the tournament and the island. It's so beautiful. Any one hasn't been there yet ? Once you go there, every single place will always call you to come back again.

What's not to love about Bali. :)
I'm going on a weekend holiday this November
to Nusa Dua.

The people are warm, the seafood good, the
beaches superb. I bet the players really enjoy
the Åsian leg of the hardcourt season, after
the BS they put up with in New York among
the superstar egos at the US Open.
