I've said this 100 times before, but I still REALLY hope Wozniacki pulls out of Bastad. She really needs to have a good rest after Wimbledon to recharge her batteries if she wants to get back on top form on the American hard courts.

- Båstad is really close to Denmark.

Radwanska seems to be well aware of her limitations, and her scheduling reflects that. She knows that her chances of beating top players are slim, so she will enter as many tournaments as possible and hope that at least a few of the draws fall apart for her so that she can vulture her way into a couple of SFs to lose to Kuznetsova or Zvonareva once there.

Its not a big deal for Radwanska or Wickmayer to play all 5.
There are going to be some good fields, and they probably wont go deep in every draw.
This gives them more chances to have 1 or 2 good weeks at a Premier. They need a friendly draw, and out of 5 draws, it could happen

Assuming Caro's shoulder is okay & Kim is close to being back, these fields are going to be pretty deep.

Obviously, the tournament in San Diego is not going to say this yet, cause they still wanna sell tickets.

There may be a small chance she can play there (if she heals faster than expected). But that's not the decision as of now.

since her return from injury, in the past two years, she only chose one between Rogers cup and W&S open (Rogers in 09 and W&S in 10, and she made two finals!), i guess this year she will do the same

LMAO, and to think someone shouted at me the other day for suggesting that New Haven should be downgraded to a MM! That entry list is piss-poor... the world #21 will be the 5th seed. :help: I'm not even sure it'll be taking place next year (it's not on the men's calendar at any rate).

you are right ... the Dallas MM seems to have a stronger entry 5th seed :sobbing:

Not everything is about Wozniacki you know :)

Who else from Top 10 aside from Wozniacki was there last year? Stosur and Schiavone? :help: This tournament clearly hasn't been getting the quality of fields that most other Premiers get (Sydney/Stanford/San Diego/Stuttgart) for years now.

Well, people who underperform or get injured early in the USO Series (like Stosur at Stanford) usually request for a WC into New Haven, so this won't be the final entry list. It will likely be better.

Also, those premier has good fields because they are not one week before slams/yec, with the exception of Sydney which is the only Premier warm-up for the Australian Open and so it is understandable. However, I'm pretty sure with Brisbane International's upgrade to Premier level next year, Sydney's field will pale in comparison to previous years as all the top players would probably be participating in Brisbane (outside a few selected people who plays in the HK exho).

Hopefully Maria gets tough and plays Cinci. I know the tournament was somewhat catastrophic for her last year, but it's a growing event and needs her. The surface plays well for her, and she's shockingly good in the heat.

Also, why is Kanepi entering qualifers when her ranking is more than good enough to get in automatically?

She entered late because she wasn't sure she'd be able to play, as she's been out with injury for a while now.

By the way, it seems like Maria will play Cincy, she is on the entry list and has the tournament on her homepage :shrug:

Daniela, Aga and Agniela will play all 5 events of USO Series + the US Open.
Nice to enjoy Danka every week but her form in US Open ??

Min. R3 very realistic. Last 16 doable too if injury free & in-form from USOseries.

Maria is not playing Cincy according to WTA Notes and Netcord

Kim and Petra withdraw from San Diego

So San Diego will only have 1 top 10 player (Vera, who is probably the 2nd weakest top 10 player this year), compared to 4 at Stanford and Serena looming. Such a contrast in the field.
